Horrible! When my car broke down I called AAA and they took it to Studio Automotive, who confirmed a problem with the transmission. I had it towed to Studio Automotive Center, and spoke to the owner, Ed. He said he couldn't determine what the problem was without a inspection. He said if it was the transmission, it would cost $3000 to repair but as a referral from AAA he would reduce it to $2400. A...

Description of Work
I specifically told the owner, Ed, not to touch my car until he heard from me. The next day I called AAA to pick up my car from the shop, as I'd decided not to have Ed work on my car (I'd consulted some knowledgeable friends and determined that his price was too high). A worker informed me that my car had already been towed to a subcontractor, but he didn't know who. He called Ed, who relayed the message to me that if I wanted the location of my car, I'd have to pay $100 for the inspection, which he'd initially waived. By now I was fuming. When I went to the second shop, I saw that they had already begun dismantling the transmission. As the subcontractor didn't know that this work was unauthorized and they were already too far into the process, I worked out a deal with him to finish the job. Needless to say, I did not pay Ed a penny.
