Sterling Heights, MI asked in Consumer Law and Small Claims for Michigan

Q: I took my car to a repair place in Michigan and I was not given an estimate of the repairs needed until 180 days after

They did the repairs but I didn’t have a chance to tell them rather or not I wanted the extra work they did done now I have a high bill. I was going to apply for a loan but I wanted to see my car first they told me it wasn’t there but in their storage wherever that is, they also said they wouldn’t bring the car from storage until I pay,how should I proceed about this issue.

A: If the "repair place" performed repairs that were not authorized by you, I suggest you file a complaint with the State of Michigan Attorney General. Michigan will investigate your complaint and contact the repair place.
