Yesterday it cost me over $540 to get my ‘79 VW convertible out of the shop. On the way home it left me on the side of the road just like it did before I brought it to y’all a week ago. Now it’s going to cost me over $100 more to get it towed back to your shop. I appreciate all the other things that were replaced on it but obviously the major problem of it cutting off in mid drive was not fixed.
I am so sorry your 79 VW did not make it home. The $540 spent on the Beetle covered the cost of the oil change, valve adjustment, brake repair, lighting repair, throttle cable, fan belt etc. All areas that are equally important to the functionality of the car. As noted on the invoice the next phase is going to be fuel related. the fuel tank was not installed correctly and there is evidence of rust in the system. We were unable to test drive the vehicle for any distance as there is not a tag on the car. The performance in the shop was acceptable. Please keep in mind that this is a 38 year old vehicle and we have no maintenance history on the car as it is new to you. When bringing these classic cars back to life issues will need to be addressed one at a time. Ben will be in touch as to what the next step should be. I do know we will need to make sure the car has a tag and proper insurance in order to legally give it a long test drive. Thanks, Susan
