My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: Indiana
So my girl goes to have her car fixed. The mechanic says she blew the engine. The estimate is $644 so we say go for it.
2 weeks later and added charges for a fuel pump and filter, oil pan, gaskets and the like, they call today and say it is ready to pick up. My woman asks what the total is, $847. So she goes to the bank, gets the cash and picks up the car. And hour later the mechanic calls and says they forgot to add a $200+ charge for the new block.
How can someone raise the price of a repair bill after you paid for it? If there was a mistake on their part, is it on us to make further payment?
The original estimate is on the bill/receipt we have. It also says paid in full on it.
