Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Chinese Vietnamese mechanic

I diagnosed the rear transfer case output shaft bearing to be worn on my kid's 1997 4Runner. I bought the bearing, seal and oil and took it to a Vietnamese mechanic. He said he had replaced that bearing before and "sometimes the bearing gets stuck on the shaft". OK. I left it.

Three days later I came back and he said it was done. I paid $250 and drove it home. It vibrated a lot, just like before. I crawled under and the transfer case and bearing had not been touched.

I drove back and pointed that out to the mechanic. He said he replaced the axle bearings in the rear end. I asked him what happened to the bearing and seal I gave him. He said he used them on the rear end, which is impossible. He said leave the car and he would fix it. I said I wanted a refund. He gave me my money but was not able to produce the bearing, seal and oil so I am out $80 and a bunch of time.

Buy a Harbor Freight press and push it off the shaft yourself.

The dealer wants $660 for the repair. I would do it myself except that my recent shoulder surgery prevents it. So I will leave the bearing like it is for a while.

Small claims court? I have been there more than once against slimeballs. I won't abide fraud. Auto mechanics are among the slimiest sleezeballs out there.

Hey, that's racist.

At least give me some credit for not taking my vehicle to a black mechanic.

I've been in & around the car/truck business since 1980. I have never seen an asian or black mechanic in all that time, or any other minority for that matter except for some Mexicans. I guess it's one of the last bastions of the White Male.

Never once seen a female wrench-turner, either.

Took the wife's SAAB to a bonafide European vehicle mechanic. Flat out lesbian I wouldn't want to fight or fuk. Overcharged on the work. So I got fuked anyway. In the wallet.
