Re: How long has your car been stuck at a workshop?
How can you take such crap from your mechanics? Having said this, I dont know the specifics of what problems they've encountered. Are you being charged by the hour? Shit, if my car was in somewhere longer than 2 weeks that'd be it. Give me the keys im goin somewhere else.
The customer is king. A lot of workshops seem to miss this point, that is, unless you're building a $100,000 500kw Skyline.
If im paying full price for a job to be done - I adopt the "foot on the back of the neck" approach. Constantly call them, hassle them. Make them commit to a day/time - if they exceed this then they better have a damn good excuse. I look at it as "I hang around work until the job's done - if im paying someone then I expect the same".
Longest my car's been in the workshop? 5 hours. Lol, i was there every minute making sure i wasnt getting screwed around, and my mechanic is my best mate. But hey - i work my ass of for my money, i expect nothing less from a service provider.
Car was off the road for 7 days whilst i did the blower install, but under the carport at home so i got to make sweet love with her every night, lol.
