Darrow's Garage
I took my truck in before Christmas, 2014, as a Christmas gift from my best friend. The truck would only go 25 mph for about a year because vandals put dirt in the tank. The tank was dropped and the dirt discovered, and removed about a year ago. Since then, I could not pay for the other vandalism of a broken steering column plus a replacement of a fuel filter. So, for Christmas, that was friend's gift. It cost $ 560.90. I finally, after three weeks of having to walk everywhere, got my truck. It did not even make it home. I ended up stranded down the street at the store. They came out and gave me a jump. I was able to get it home. Due to work, I did not start it the next day. I started it on 01/9, after getting stranded down the street within 20 minutes of retrieval from Darrow's on 01/07. When I tried to start the truck this morning, it would not stay on. Again, the battery was depleted. My friend helped me and we discovered a very serious gas leakspurting--spewing gasoline out of the carburetor. Why? No idea. I paid for a fuel filter replacement. After speaking with a representative at Darrow's, he was very hesitant to take any responsibility for my now- inoperable truck. He cussed at me. He does not want to pay for a tow. He claimed that he would take care of it IF he had any responsibility, otherwise I will have to pay for the tow and the extra work. I do not trust this automotive institution. I do not approve of my truck being in that shop for nearly three weeks, only to get it returned to me inoperable and dangerously so. This is outrageous. He was not repentant, sentimental, understanding--instead he blamed me for the fuel leak that did not exist before I left it there. I am very disappointed, and quite frankly, I am disgusted with his handling of my fuel-spilling condition of my now-inoperable vehicle. I am stranded, and all he cares about is getting money. I cannot believe that they wouldnot know that the fuel was spurting before telling me that they fixed the truck! I t is spewing all over the engine, and falling onto the ground.... So, he blamed ME!!!!!!! What in the world?????? Are you kidding me? This is outrageous!! I am NOT taking my truck to that dishonest, money-hungry, irresponsible and dangerous mechanic again. I have warned you. I do not know why he is behaving this way, but I am used to doing business with reputable, conscientious, responsible mechanics. not know that the fuel was spurting before telling me that they fixed the truck!

The guy is a crook. Not listed with the state of Oregon. He lied to me and took my money. Did nothing to the car. I have to take him to small claims court but it is hard to find out where he lives and what his real name is.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
