Angela Robbins took her daughter’s 2005 Chrysler Sebring to Mechanically Inclined for a water pump repair in November.

“At this point, in time I’ll take it as is and somebody else can fix it,” she told WXIN. “Just let’s have the car back.” 

Ted Franklin, the shop’s owner, told WRTV he moved the shop after a dispute with the landlord and he had neglected to tell Robbins that her car had been moved. He said it took longer than expected because he kept finding additional issues with the car.

“I said, ‘We’re going there because we can trust these people,’” Robbins told WRTV. “Famous last words, huh?”
