Client seeks assistance with a consumer claim involving vehicle repairs. On May 28, 2020, Client reached out to his friend/mechanic, the opposing party (OP) to repair his 2011 Audi A4. OP took possession of the Audi that day. He informed Client that an electrical specialist would need to inspect the vehicle. OP requested advance payment in the amount of $200 cash. Client received notice sometime in June that the Audi had a transmission issue, not an electrical problem. OP stated that a new transmission would cost $400, which Client agreed to pay on June 26th.
On July 14th, Client paid another $60 via Zelle for the transmission fluid and filter. About six months later, Client did not hear from OP after several calls and texts. Finally, on February 24, 2021, OP admitted crashing the vehicle, causing additional damages. The Audi has been at a body shop since then. OP will not disclose the location of the body shop. A demand letter was sent out requesting the same and to return the Audi. Client wants both his vehicle and the repair payments returned.
