Pep Boys ruined rather than fix my car. I took it there (in San Diego) for a change of the timing belt and after charging me $520 they told me I should get rid of the car, that it is worthless.
After paying, I took the car to another mechanic, who gave us a detailed report of the damages done to the car by Pep Boys. They had done over $900 damage to the vehicle, and now I am asking for compensation or we are going to court.
The car was before Pep Boys (and is now) in excellent condition.
