Good Year service center / Centers owner denies full responsiblity

1 4000 hwy 281 NMarble Falls, TX, United States

My wife took her 2000 Mercury Villager Sport to have the front end aligned and have the thermostat changed and have the sensor and cooling fan checked. She was given an estimate of approximately 3 hours to be repaired. After about 2.5 hrs my called to see how things were going and thats when Sandy told her that there was a problem and the mechanic came on the phone line and told that he had an issue with the van. He proceeded to tell my wife he had broke the thermostat housing. They were taking the van to the Ford dealership for a third party opinon about why it had broken. The Mechanic at Ford told me that the only way it would break was if the outer housing had been out of alignment with the inner housing. I took Wade West to small claims court because he kept saying that he would only pay half of the repair bill because he felt that it wasn't all his fault that the part had broked. In court his mechanic lied to what Ford had told him which he only was at the dealership once and was told that the van had not been disassembled at that time. Wade only had to pay for half the bill due to the lies that was told during the court hearing I feel that if you take your vehicle to a service center for repair and it is damaged then it should be repaired at no cost to you .
