NEVER go there, this guy is a rip off. If you have EVER had warranty work done you better check your paperwork. Call the manufacturer yourself. You should not have to pay for warranty work. He tried to cheat me out of a warranty and double dip. Me pay for labor cost AND the manufacturer pay for labor cost. NOT GOOD! The manufacturer sent me to a 'reputable' mechanic AT NO COST TO ME!

I took my truck to Barry Chastain at Chastain's auto to have the clutch replaced. First of all when I got the truck back it was leaking exhaust so bad that my gas mileage had been cut in half. I took it back to Chastain's and discovered that they had cracked the manifold. They admitted this and offered a "discount on the labor" to have the manifold replaced, I had to buy the part and pay partial labor.
Then one year later my clutch went out again, this was due to an installation error.. When I called the shop I was told that they only had a twelve month warranty and as it had been thirteen months I was simply out of luck. I expressed my disappointment and was told by the business owner that he was sorry I "felt upset". Stay away from this place, they have the philosophy of take the money and run.
