Queen Creek, AZ asked in Consumer Law, Contracts and Car Accidents for Arizona

Q: Who should pay, me or the mechanic?

I have a car that overheated and went to a mechanic to fix it. He told me that I have to replace the fan with a new one so I was ok with it. He ordered an aftermarket fan and replaced it. After 3 months the car overheated. I called him and said the car overheated and he said to bring it back to the shop as I do have a warranty for the fan. I'm in a different city which I cannot drive while the car is overheated. I spent $123 just for checking what caused the car to overheat, and I was told the fan doesn't work. My questions are who should pay to ship the car to the car shop, me or the mechanic? Do I have the right to ask the mechanic for a refund of $123 that I spent to check the car? Thanks!

A: Your mechanic who fixed the car agreed to fix it again; find a way to take it back to him. No excuses.
