I'd like to tell everyone how bad these guys screwed me over. I first took my 1980 corvette in to get it looked over. i told the mechanics that if they did me right, i would let them work on my car from start till i had gone thru it completly. i just asked them to be honest w/ me and they would get a bunch of business. so much for honesty! they immediatly told me i needed a new exhaust. i knew it really only needed one of the hangers re-welded. they were gonna put some tranny mounts on it at the same time so i agreed to let them do the exhaust(like an idiot) when i picked up my car, the idle was really high. i asked them about it and they said because they put a new exhaust on the carb was acting different(why didn't they adjust it?) hence the higher idle. as soon as i put it in geear it almost ripped the tranny out because the idle was so high. why didn't they do that in the first place? i should've figured it out then but i gave them a second chance. BIG MISTAKE! the car wasn't charging properly so i took it back to get a new alternator. they tried to get me to buy the more expensive one they had. i said no and went and got my own alternator for half the price.(they didn't like that) they installed that and i went home sorta satisfied. the next time i drove the car, i heard it make this godawful noise. i looked at the alternator and it looked cocked sideways just a little bit. enough so that the belt was freyed. at that point, i had had it! i found another mechanic that actually came to my house to diagnose the issue and had him take the car to his shop. it was then he told me what had actually happened. the alternator bracket arm was broken in half and the spacers were not even installed correctly. at the same time he informed me that whoever had put the exhaust on had smashed the speedo cable between the exhaust and the tranny housing and it was melted and ruined. BOILING POINT! i had that mechanic fix the problems because there was no way in hell ATLANTIC MUFFLER was gonna touch my vette again. the total on the parts and labor was $290.000 not too bad! so....i got the reciept and took it to atlantic muffler. Daniel, the mechanic that had done all the work actually agreed to the stuff that had gone wrong. he informed me that he would talk to the owner and they would try to figure something out. fast forward to the next day......he never called me back so i called him. to my disbelief, he informed me that they wouldn't honor their work. I TOLD HIM EITHER THEY GIVE ME THE MONEY IT COST ME TO BUY THE PARTS THEY BROKE AND FIX IT OR I WAS GONNA STAND IN FRONT OF THEIR SHOP TILL THE TOOK CARE OF IT! SO......THAT'S WHERE WE ARE NOW. I'LL BE OUT THERE TILL THEY HANDLE THIS ISSUE! I WON'T GET SCREWED OVER LIKE THIS! i'd almost bet the 3 previous post were by the only 3 friends these scumbags have. DO NOT DO BUSINESS W/ THIS SHOP. YOU WILL GET SCREWED!

These guys are the real deal. They know exactly what it means to be a real person who doesn't have an arm and a leg to spend on fixing your car. They will give you the best deal possible. They do not short cut the process. This is quality work at an affordable price. Only with there shop is that it is not closer to my house. Thanks Daniel for your hard work.

As a woman who knows little about cars - I feel I can trust JD and his employees at Atlantic. They are up front with estimates and called around to get me the best price on parts! I trust this shop more than any others that I have ever used!

Thanks!
