^ I agree fully. And how can you make alligations of slander without even giving any evidence and acting like whoever believes this guy is a moron? I mean look at the work order and amount of labor charged. I wish more people would go to court like this guy did because then shops that take advantage of people would be a little more hesitant.

I really can't wait for the shop owner to come on and try to cover his a$$... But will he really come by to face the jury?!?! I'm not sure how you can cover the fact that there is a bill that was shown on this thread for a ridiculous labor times. But hey, we could be wrong. So till then... I"M WAITING!!

honestly that could really screw his buisness bad in his area.. not that im sorry for him, but like any shop who tries to screw someone, theres always that chance that it will back fire.

The only way this could go lean in his way is if he can prove that he actually won the case and didn't have to give the money back, but the fact that he over-charged by that much is still able to be posted as a warning for everyone else so they don't get scammed as well.

He infact suceeded in making everyone believe his story, that is all but the good people who know Northstar and have no problems with them. So expect the owners side of the story to be out soon and the results will be played outside of the forum.
look at the bold, looks like a threat that hes getting a ass whooping off the forums. sounds like a threat

not to disagree but the law is really messed up, depending on old cases, jurres, judge, defence, and codes. posting or maybe disgerishing buisness (advertising) can be on corvette shops side. highly unlikly but ...

well, honestly its normally the customers fault if they dont like the bill because you have to give the ok before most any shop does any work. i've never heard of a shop that gives a huge surprise at the end? the shop didnt call you and let you know what the progress is or give you an estimate before any work was done? I work at a dealer and at dealers no repairs are done without approval for reasons jus like this. Now as far as them overcharging you thats one thing, but them not knowing what they are doing.... did they mess anything up too? you seem to be the uneducated one my friend. but i hope it turns out for the best.

I think this thread has went about as far as it'll go. I'll leave it open in case the shop owner wants to contribute to the thread and defend himself but I'll ask all others not involved to please stop posting in the thread.

bottom line is 42 hrs were charged and 3 weeks in his shop, tell me whos smoking crack??
Dave brought up Slander to the Judge and was laughed at. Slander is when you give false accusations of a particular business. I gave you pure facts and most of all to warn others about who you take your shop to.
Bottom line is i came out with the Victory, case closed! I won't be replying anymore cause its really not worth it in my eyes.
