Recently I went to the ATLANTIC AUTO REPAIR to get my car fixed. I was on a family trip and was heading towards the Atlantic beach when our car stopped suddenly and didn’t start again. There were no repair shops and after towing my car for about a mile I saw the ATLANTIC AUTO REPAIR. I took no other chance and went to the place so that they could help us repair. The place was spacious but nothing was kept accordingly so it was a total mess from inside. The cars were not parked properly in the marked area and there was hardly any place to park my car. I kept my car outside and went inside to meet the owner of this place.
The mechanics were rude and didn’t respond while questioning. I had to repeat my question several times to get a response. One of the mechanics was chewing tobacco and didn’t open his mouth. He gave strange directions which I couldn’t follow. Somehow, after all these difficulties I found the office. The manager wasn’t present and I had to wait for more than half an hour, I had no other option but to wait. He finally came and I told him about the strange behaviour of my car. He suddenly went on a phone call and told me to wait until he finishes. It took him long and I was getting frustrated as time passed by. It was a sunny day and my family couldn’t enjoy it because of the delay. The owner then called one of his mechanics to inspect my car.
Their discussion got over after another half an hour and the owner came to me and gave me the quote. It was expensive but I was out of any other option. I accepted the offer and was told that the engine exhaust pipe was damaged and they would replace it. It wouldn’t take much time they assured. I decided to wait outside with my family. After drinking beverages and packet foods I went back to the place after an hour. The car was under repair and I was informed that the problem was a bit complex and would take some more time. it was already afternoon and it had been 3 hours since I was there. I came back after half an hour and the mechanic told me that the battery fused while working with the pipe and that too needed a replacement. The repair was getting complicated as time passed by. I was getting exhausted and frustrated and didn’t like the unprofessional work of the mechanics.
They took a long 2 additional hours to complete the work and it was already dark. The whole day was wasted and we had to return home without stopping at the beach. My wife and both my children were pissed off. The day went very bad due to the work of ATLANTIC AUTO REPAIR. They were very slow and expensive too. They were taking the mere advantage of being the only shop in that area. I would not recommend anyone to visit this place. Please stay away because it would be a real-time waste.
