This is a crooked auto repair shop

In 2007 I was looking through the AAA auto club website and notice this mechanic was on their recommended auto repair shop. Thus you can conclude that the AAA auto club website is not very reliable or trust worthy.

I decided to drive by this auto repair shop that night when I was in the area to check and get the general idea of what the shop appearance was. When I drove by that night, I notice there was a police car there and they were talking to the people of Kato's Auto Service.

It seems someone broke in and vadalize the place. I guess they must of rip someone off and they broke in the vadalize the place in retaliation.

However at the time I did not know that they were crooked so I decided to take my car in for an automatice transmission oil & filter change. They replace my AT oil but did not replace AT oil filter. I asked them and they told me they don't need to. They lies right in front of my face like I was borned yesterday. As I have had my AT oil and filter change many time before so I know what is done normally.

Then during the AT oil change, they remove my valve cover and was messing around with it. The AT oil is at the bottom, not at the top of the engine. I just watch and observed to see what this guy is up to.

Afterward he charged me $97 for the AT oil change, not even changing the AT oil filter. I decided that this guy was a crook, just pay and will not becoming back to this place again.

A couple of week later my timing belt broke. I change the timing belt 5,000 miles ago so I was not expecting it, until I remember they messing around with my valve cover. Did they do something to my timing belt when they open up my valve cover unneccessarily?

I took my car to a reliable auto mechanic, a little bit expensive but not as expensive as this guy, and he fix it and there was no problem after that. After this incident, I decided that AAA auto club recommended Auto Repair Shop is not a reliable recommendation that I would ever use again.

A good indication of a crooked auto mechanic is when you bring a perfectly running car and suddenly there is all kind of mechanic problems, such as a broken timing belt when I just replace it 5,000 miles ago.

Beware of this Asian auto mechanics.

Update 02/06/2013

It seems this crook has lost his AAA Auto Club endorsement. I guess AAA must have had some undercover person investigate this guy and must have verified this guy is a crook and took away their AAA Auto Club endorsement.
