I have a 2001 Nissan Maxima, and I took my car to the shop because it needed brakes. So the mechanic at the shop told me that my car needed a catalytic converter. So I bought one and took my car back to the shop so the mechanic can put the part on. While I was at the shop, the mechanic told me that the part I bought was bad. So he didn't fix my car and he didn't fix my brakes, and still, I had to pay him. So now, my car is having trouble starting, and when it does start, it just cuts off. So, can I sue the mechanics for messing up my car?

Best Answer:

Skoda John: Always get a shop to provide the parts. Faulty parts are their problem. If they need replacing under waranty the shop has to pay the labour.
This is why they use quality parts.
Brakes should be done as part of a service before they need emergency work.
Without doing an emissions test for which there is no need for brake work how could he tell the catalytic converter was defective?
You need evidence from an engineer that he has not done his job properly to sue him.

Other answer:

Skoda John:
go to a lawyers office yes you can sue anyone for anything dont mean you will get a dime but sounds like someone just took your money and you let them get a lawyer
Timbo is here:
If you can prove it yes but from what you say nothing was done that would interfere with the car starting so its unlikely
