A: This question can only be answered based upon reading whatever contract you have with the auto repair shop.

In most situations, if the auto repair shop isn’t fixing your car quickly enough for you, you should pick up the car and take it to a different auto repair shop.

But, if I were you, I’d talk to the mechanic at the shop first to determine why it is taking so long. That information would seem to me to be important to making a decision as to what your best course of action is under the circumstances.
