Not sure if this the right area for posting, but any help would be welcome.
I took my car in for a rebuild on my transmission. asked them for a "ball park" estimate while I was there. he said the transmission would be around £1000.00 and the labour £500.00 I told them if it goes much above that to call me
I had the head gaskets replaced by them a month prior for £2000.00.
I informed them that if this repair went much above £1500.00 it would exceed the value of the car, hence the request to call me .
Got the call last week and the bill for £2800.00!! I asked them why you did not call me, they could not remember me telling them to call if over £1500.00
So guys, where do I stand on this? They said I can pay for the transmission £1475.00 and they would sell the car for me to recover their labour costs and charge me a small commission for selling the car!
What recourse if any do i have here?
