VEGAS GET THIS, when I dropped off my car to get them to replace my engine under warranty I got a call from the shop saying, " The warranty is offering $50 an hour to replace your engine however our labor charge is 95 an hour, how would you like to pay the difference..."

I told then Don't remove a bolt till you talk to LKQ because I am not spending a DIME and a few hours later they called me and told me its taken care of. Worst techs i ever seen, and remember your getting it installed by the lowest bidder and you get what you pay for.

Thats great to hear. They'd have to or they wouldn't have any business.

VEGAS yea that's what LKQ offered to, they had their guy do it. After that guy did much damage I made them pay me $550 on top of it for bad parts they screwed up AFTER the new engine installed.. They didn't wanna work with me on them parts till I slammed them on their own Facebook page.

mikebontoft for the record I have not heard good things about automotix.

also as a shop I don't recommend it when people try to find an engine on their own and as such will offer no warranty if it goes bad. and it has happened before too.
