Collision Tech has been the WORST mechanic and bodyshop experience of my life, even resulting actual personal injury to myself. That horrible shop was tasked with fixing damage on my car due to an accident. $300 was the price for frame repair plus any subsequent estimate for additional bodywork and engine repair; I had stated that I wanted it fixed and driveable. After having the car since January, Jerry's story changed from being able to repair the frame to NOT being able to fix it and needing to order parts. I provided front end body panels. At this point, the overall estimate was excess of $1900. After that, he said would be ready in a couple of days by the end of the week. The next week, he continued to stall. Eventually he told me when I called that he got the engine running and then proceeded to stall for time again. The car was ready 2-25-2011. Jerry proceeded to give me a list of things that he DID NOT fix; hood release cable, radiator fan switch, and the absence of an A/C condenser. He assured me that even though the radiator fan wouldn't turn on, that the car wouldn’t overheat. 2 hours after delivery I noticed a crack in the brand new paintjob he had applied. Also noticed that the brand new hood locking mechanism that I had provided was not used for the hood repair and that the hood would not lock. when I notified Jerry of this, he said he didn't know of any part. I returned to Collision Tech and was unable to find the part. Jerry found some way to lock the hood and I proceeded to go to a salvage yard to get a replacement part for that hood. When I left the parking lot there, the hood flipped up and smashed the roof of my car. Later that evening, the car started producing smoke from the engine. When I popped the hood to see what was wrong, boiling-temperature coolant was sprayed on my arm and face. I suffered 2nd degree burns to my arm in which the skin was burned right off and the car overheated. I managed to get the car home and the next day, it overheated five minutes after startup. His establishment has had the car for a month and they have done a horrendous job of mechanical work as well as paint&body.

Repair/Service: trunk and front end repair
Hourly Rate: $0
Total Cost: $500
Thank you, Collision Tech for another wonderful repair! Over the years, I have taken all of my cars to Jerry for repair and have always been extremely pleased. Once again, Jerry and his entire staff have done an excellent job.
Recently, my white Mazda Miata trunk lid was damaged when I closed the lid on something sitting too high in the trunk. Jerry made it look brand new again even after having to create a custom color to match the existing paint. Jerry explained that my car was not painted an original factory color and he had to create the color when making the repair. The trunk looks great.
Collision Tech also did an excellent repair job several years ago when I had extensive front end damage due to an accident. My 2006 Miata looks brand new!
Each experience I have had with Collision Tech has been pleasant and professional. My cars have been ready when promised and the work done to more than my satisfaction. Thank you again, Jerry and Collision Tech!
