I drove by the shop last week, and noticed a sign hanging up that said something about a new owner taking over.

I went in yesterday and got my windows tinted, and had a stage 2 alarm put in my Accord. So far so good.

The ad from a local free paper said the alarm was $39/piece . When my husband and I first went to the shop with the ad and our cars, Tim quoted for $89/piece including instlation and auto power lock (one door only). We thought it was still better than other places, so 3 days later we brought the car back to have it installed. Wnen we went in, after Tim said hi to us, he disappeared. Instead, another guy came out. We told this guy that Tim gave us $89, but he said Tim was wrong. The right price was $180/piece! The explanation was that the alarm we were purchasing didn't have shock sensors, auto power lock etc. We didn't have enough time to shop around at that time. We really needed to have it done on that day, and they knew that as well..... We asked for discount, and after 15 minutes debate, the final price went down to $300 plus tax for two alarm instlations. Though, the story doesn't end here. The alarm installed to my husband's car was extremely sensitive, and it went off for any noise (bus passing by etc.,) , and our neighbors and us were forced to wake up many times even in the middle of the night. Moreover, my car started having a problem, too. the auto lock stopped working, and I couldn't even lock the car manually. In other words, my car was always parked unlocked. So, the first Saturday after the alarms were installed, we had to bring the cars back to the store. For my husband's, they adjusted the alarm for free. But, they charged $120 for my car. They explained that the auto lock switch box died, and I had to replace it. They said that this part would have died at any time and it just happened at that time. I told them that it was such a coincidence that it happened RIGHT AFTER they installed the alarm. But, we were too tired to argue anymore and wanted to leave the store so badly. So we paid. Maybe the total amount we paid still wasn't too bad. But,considering the trouble, we should have gone to a bigger, more trustworthy store such as Circuit City.
