Default Was It Replaced Or Did I Get Swindled?

So last fall my front passenger wheel bearing got so bad it was grinding. I took it to a shop and I had them change the hub bearing and when they took it apart they said i was going to need a new drive axle because it was bad also. I said ok and let them do it. They fixed it and everything was smooth again.

So about a month ago I took it back and asked them to change the driver side hub bearing and drive axle so both sides would be even and I wouldn't have to worry.

But I took my wheels off recently and noticed something didn't look right. The passenger side(repaired last year) was still nice and not rusty. But the drivers side(supposedly changed this year) still looked like the same rusty threads and nut

If the driver's side drive axle was replaced shouldn't it look like the passenger side?

take a look:

passenger side(changed last year)

If you asked them to replace the Axle as well, it should've been new. Check your receipt and see what they charged you for this year. If you see axle, go back and raise hell on them.

I specifically asked them to change it. That's why I paid what I did and I know it's on the receipt.

Take the receipt with you and go back to that place. Tell them to take off your wheel and show you how the axle was replaced. Like I said, raise hell and don't settle for anything less than a new replacement, free of charge (of course).

Some shops those cheap CV boot repair kit. They do that to not do the labor of replacing the whole Axle. check your receipt in details

The end of that axle looks like its never been changed. This is why I never take my car to a mechanic. Either they are crooked son's of bitches, or they just don't care enough to double check their work.

Not every mechanic is a crook. It's always the few that ruin it for the honest ones. I've had my mechanic for 6 years and every time I go, I always stay there to see the work done or help through the process to learn about it.

Finding a good, honest mechanic is always a trial and error process. There are the goods and bads, you just have to search around.

No! He needs to take it back and raise hell. Don't let them get away with that!! Then after they fix it, never go back there again!

It's horrible to find out the work you paid for was not done. I would have been royally upset!

what i don't understand is this. if you go into a bank and tell them you are holding them up for $300, you go to jail. if you walk into macy's and steal a jacket for $300, you go to jail for shoplifting. but if you charge for an oil change and don't exchange the oil filter, or charge $450 for a new car part but in fact install a used one for $100, its different. to me this is like some guy reached into your pocket and stole money from you. its theft. it's dishonest. i would complain to him, i would complain to the better business bureau, i would tell my attorney and every friggin friend i have to make sure no one within your sphere of influence will ever give this scumbucket a dime.

i concur!

i mean we're not rich...at least im not. i have a mortgage, 2 car payments, 2 small kids and a shit load of other expenses on a single income. so when a situation or those few extra bucks lying around are avail i can mod. and for someone u confide in, someone u deem truthworthy enough to pay the hundreds of dollars screws u, i feel ur pain!

make the reportings to the BBB and get ur service done right.
