Might have been My Monkeys...

NO RATINGS
In an apparent effort to generate future business after having sold me a set of tires, the monkeys at a local repair shop:

 

1) Reversed the shoulder belt mounting bracket, producing a twist in the passenger shoulder belt

2) Loosened the mounting screws on the valve cover gasket prompting oil leaks in heretofor dry locations

3) Disconnected the square drive from the driver's seat adjustment mechanism which caused the seat to fail to work properly

4) Gawd knows what else

 

I've since repaired three of their little 'mistakes'. I've also gotten two postcards from them wondering when I shall be back to spend more money...    :)
