Another Poorly Repaired Vehicle Inspected

I was hired a few weeks ago to inspect a 2014 Hyundai Sonata. This vehicle was repaired at a large local Auto Body Shop that is owned by a large dealer in the City of Charlotte North Carolina.

The car had some obvious flaws from the outside, taillight not fitting, large panel gaps, rough paint work, over spray on panels that were not painted. As we looked further it got worse.

It appears that the shop elected not to weld the panels back on the car but they used glue instead. There is a tack weld at the end of the quarter but it is welded poorly at best.

Bolts were missing and left loose and the customer had taken it back to the dealer 3 times before she decided to seek us out to help her with her diminished value. We inspect other auto body shops repairs for our customers to make sure that they are safe. If you had your car fixed in the last three years, you can still have us take a look at the repairs and help you collect for your loss in value. A consultation is FREE. 

So don't take a chance if you notice anything that does not look , feel, or sound right. There can be allot of not so good repairs hiding under the shiny paint!
