i went through the same thing with this place. scheduled a tranny rebuild on March 3rd, and didn't get my car back until April 3rd. After that, I had to take my car to a transmission specialist because Larry's "mechanics" bent the transmission shield, which was making a hell of a lot of noise. Rather than replace or remove it, which would require them partially removing the tranny again, they removed all the bolts in the area to try to give the shield more room and mask the noise. It turns out they took out so many bolts that my transmission, according to the second shop was "more off than on." had to pay the second guy $850 to take the tranny off and put it back on. They also trashed one of my axles and my tranny mount which had to be replaced.
oh, forgot to mention, while there, they lost my keys and keyless entry remote, two amplifiers, the registration sticker off my plate (they also cut my plate out of my bumper because it was put on with key-lock bolts), they damaged my bumper, and misplaced my dry cell battery (which showed up when I went nuts). The whole experience was very twilight zone-esque.
I saved all my paper work from the second shop (transman in Essington). and the guy there was very helpful in putting the bill together to show exactly what he fixed to correct their screw-ups. I took all my info with some pictures and filed a lawsuit. Suggest you guys do the same. Since it's less than $10, 000 it's a small-claims case handled through municipal court. No attorney, costs $100 to serve Larry and his wife, but you get that back if you win. It's a sure win. email me if you guys want any help filing: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also be awarded up to 3x what you ask for. Larry's got the $ too, he lives on the main line.
