what is with you people? Do you honestly think that someone just took your money and didnt do anything to your car?
If so, I know why our youth is so screwed up. If you dont trust your tech, dont take your car to him/her.
otherwise, realize this... Fixing a car is, in fact NOT the easiest thing to do on the planet. If it were, you could do it yourself.
You may have to take it on faith that you are not being screwed by every person you meet for everything you have.
I understand what you mean, though the owner may have been a bit curious to see what was replaced. I know I wouldn't pay $1000 just to wonder if the work was actually done...nor would I ask for an opinionfrom that shop.
Next time justask that they return the old parts.
