Episode 4 – What To Do When Your Car Is Not Fixed Right

Funny Car Signs

Happy Monday everyone. Today on the Automotive Podcast, we are talking about what to do when your car is not fixed right the first time. As much as I wish all cars were fixed right, that is just not reality. We discuss the steps you can take to get your car back on the road with as little headache as possible.

Show Notes:

  • Step 1
    Analyze if your car is safe, and keep calm
  • Step 2
    Call the shop ASAP, and stay calm
  • Step 3
    Explain exactly what is happening, and note if it is the same issue, or a new one
  • Step 4
    Give them an opportunity to fix it.
  • Step 5
    Work with that same shop to get your car fixed
  • Why a check engine light may not be diagnosed properly.
  • Keys to getting your car fixed asap

I know that this can be a touchy subject for folks. But these is the best way I have found to help make a crappy situation with your car better.

Thanks for tuning in to the automotive podcast. I am really excited about the response. If you have any show topics, please comment, or contact me.

    Ok it worked. I have a 2007 Ford Focus SE & i am having trouble putting gas in the car. I took it to a place called Streamline to get it fixed & they said it was the fuel tank vent solenoid which “needed to be replaced” was $153.00 dollars & labor $180.00. Well turns out what they did did’t fix the car. They said they drove it to a gas station & said it worked (which i now don’t believe it worked for them) but i have tried to put gas in it twice now & it still doesn’t work. What’s happens next? It was THEIR MISTAKE so why the hell should i have to pay any more money if that’s the case?
