I suspect you have a decent case with the tranny thing. A lot of the rest would be hard to claim but if you never made any reference to the gearbox in your text you should be able to nail them in small claims court.
Thanks Matt. In all of my years of operating an automotive business I’ve been told by all parties that the onus is on me to provide a written estimate and obtain authorizations and without them I may get paid zero at the end of the repairs and have nothing to take to court to argue otherwise. We’ll see what a judge has to say. You never know how that’s goes until you receive the actual judgement. I just want to prevent anyone else from getting screwed like me.
