Honestly -- you really can't easily fracture a control arm -- but the old control arm bushings were very likely shot. So he should have replaced the control arm when he did the job -- but it would have cost you obviously more money. So did he suggest changing that control arm while he was changing the axle? Most mechanics would have asked. Also how long was it until it fell apart -- if you hit another pothole in the meantime then it could have just broken on its own. Didn't you feel the problem? It should have steered really bad before it went.



Thanks! It happened right after they worked on it and did not mention any issues until they admitted fault after the accident. Anyway...buyer beware I guess...they definitely are not worth a visit. Was horrifying. Thanks for the love and constructive thoughts though. All the best

Thank you! I'm actually beyond resilient...resilience is an understatement when it comes to my life story...but thanks and yes I am bitter, resentful, and if people piss me off then yes I hold a grudge. People roll over and take it...I don't. Enough is enough you see. I've let plenty of people get away with crap and I'm finally not letting it happen. And haha no public break down. Thanks though for looking out! Anyways, my claims are correct thankfully...and yes legal recourse has been in motion. I have photos, videos, police report etc. As mentioned earlier the owner tried to fix the car...by taking that action he also proved fault..he even said "this should never have happened"....but the re-hiring of the guy he fired crossed the line. So yes...hopefully Karma comes their way. I have a dream team of lawyers that are already hashing things out. Blessings to you!

Unfortunately you come across as someone who is bitter, resentful and with a grudge ... no resilience to speak of and heading for a public break-down.

If you don't want to use the legal process, complaining will fall on deaf ears ... At the moment it's your word against theirs without a legal judgment / result.

May I suggest to go and have a beer and put it all behind you ... especially with all your health issues ! If your claims are correct, maybe karma will come into play for the mechanic shop.

Also..,watch your language bro. I'm a cancer survivor and you prove yourself quite ridiculous to be talking like that. Have some manners. And I see you like to pick fights with people on here so you should really ask yourself why you feel the need. What are you missing in your life? Good luck to you...truly you need help. Amen

Hi everyone. I went out this weekend and not just once but twice neighbors called the police on the noise levels at a couple local bars. I won't name the bars...but they are ones that were here before these newbies even knew the words Jersey City. They are bars and it's the weekend. You are wasting the police's time to have them come in for a second asking people to be quiet which doesn't even work...because it's a bar!! Geeee...let me buy a home in proximity of a bar and then complain that the bar is making too much noise....on the weekend! What is wrong with you rats? Holy moly! Get a life! Wow!

I also want to add that the new residents complained about the gorgeous church bells that rung on 6th and Monmouth. That was a beautiful aspect to this area and the newbies complained so much that a church now cannot ring their bells! Their Church Bells!!! Who the heck doesn't like church bells! I'm Jewish and I even love the pretty historic noise they make!

JC Make It Yours...yeah I don't think so! It was everyone's before these douches moved in! Whaaaa the bars make noise...whaaa the church rings it's bells...whaaa whaaa whaaaa...go back to Manhattan or wherever you came from! Holy mackerel

LMAO...you just admitted Al's sucks. It was a broken axle...he is a mechanic shop...duh! That's what they're supposed to do...fix broken things in cars...and there was no other structural damage..it was 100% caused by them...I have a lot of evidence. Multiple witnesses that saw their screw-up when looking through the evidence and my car...so buddy.....As clear as day, your tire analogy is completely off and actually you come off as the pathetic one to argue with someone who almost died as a direct result of a mechanich shop's negligence..and I have put in a claim smartypants..I can recommend great attorneys! Thanks for playing though lover ; ) Kisses. Thankfully most of the residents here have some class and don't mess with people that had horrible events happen to them. Anyway...I'll carry on letting the community know that there is a real risk going to A&M Auto Repair on 6th St in Jersey City. Anyway, see you at Starbucks ...xoxoxo

Nope. I won't let it go thanks though. I was a customer at the negligent shop and actually do not work at another autoshop. I'll continue to let the city and the residents know about it! Feel free to meet me at Starbucks wednesday nights from 8-9pm and I can explain why I won't let it go and evidence I don't work for a competitor... And in fact I don't bitch...I state the facts. Thanks for your concern though. You're sweet. Have a great night lover! The best to you too!

And seriously, if another person has something negative to say about my situation of almost dying...and the right I have to notify the community, then you too can meet me at Starbucks and I'll correct you again and again....

So far I only need to meet two of you wednesdays from 8-9p at the Starbucks Grove. Thankfully most of you actually care...unlike my two new lovers on here...lmao

Sadly, this issue of competent employees is a problem for many businesses, particularity contractors in my experience. I had a well regarded contractor do a tile bathroom that was identical to one he had done before excellently, and it was utter crap. Assuming it was an employee issue, it was also his failure to supervise, and maintain his standards. I cannot hire him again.

That said, I brought my 4 year old car to this place for a brake job, he called me and said I needed to see the situation that there was extensive rotor damage and the calipers were freezing up. He was very conscientious about it, and when I felt I should have he dealership look at it, he asked of me only $25 for his time, which was ridiculous.

I'll be bringing it to him again, since there are no obviously better choices, anyplace has this issue with employees. There was a well regarded shop on Newark at Brunswick (I think) that nearly killed a car for me by leaving a pulley loose after a timing belt change. Same problem, sloppy employee. Hiring a mechanic or contractor is always like throwing yourself off a cliff into the ocean and hoping a wave is covering the rocks when you hit.

Good for you dtjc...glad your experience is nice....However, it's not called trolling...it's called accountability. And yes, pep boys would have done better. I had multiple NY and NJ Licensed mechanics and lawyers confirm the complete and utter negligence of Al the owner and his employees and that in their entire careers they'd never seen something so bad. So honestly dude...you didn't almost die like I did..and if you did you'd be keeping your mouth wide open about the complete failure of this shop. So no homey... don't you troll. Ummm k. Buh bye. I'm not going to go back and forth about this. I will continue to let the community know that a real risk is present at A&M Auto on 6th St in Jersey City. If you got a further problem feel free to meet me Wednesday nights from 8-9pm at the Grove Starbucks and we can discuss in details how it's not trolling...every week if you want!

I've 83000 miles on my car, that's been maintained by this shop for the past 12 years or so. No problems. If you have a clunker with a broken axle - probably not the best place to bring it. But trolling a pretty good local repair shop isn't cool. Do you think Pepboys would have done a better job?

Sadly, this issue of competent employees is a problem for many businesses, particularity contractors in my experience. I had a well regarded contractor do a tile bathroom that was identical to one he had done before excellently, and it was utter crap. Assuming it was an employee issue, it was also his failure to supervise, and maintain his standards. I cannot hire him again.

That said, I brought my 4 year old car to this place for a brake job, he called me and said I needed to see the situation that there was extensive rotor damage and the calipers were freezing up. He was very conscientious about it, and when I felt I should have he dealership look at it, he asked of me only $25 for his time, which was ridiculous.

I'll be bringing it to him again, since there are no obviously better choices, anyplace has this issue with employees. There was a well regarded shop on Newark at Brunswick (I think) that nearly killed a car for me by leaving a pulley loose after a timing belt change. Same problem, sloppy employee. Hiring a mechanic or contractor is always like throwing yourself off a cliff into the ocean and hoping a wave is covering the rocks when you hit.

Haha! So true. Normally I'd be sad, however, in this case ...bring on the mini-tower to replace this sad excuse for a mechanic shop! All the best to you!

Long story short ---> Rewind to this summer....His employees are so negligent they drink on the job while the boss is away and fracture your lower control arm while replacing an axle; unknown to you the driver....until your axle snaps out of the transmission causing your wheel to get lodged under the car while in the left lane of a 4 lane highway on July 4th travel weekend; 13 miles out and one hour after they "fixed" it. Yeah you're right!-I'm lucky to be alive!....By absolute luck, my mother watching over me, other aware drivers, and my impeccable driving and ability to maintain control of a vehicle that was literally jumping up and down smacking against the road; all this with a dangerous to use and aggresively bouncing steering wheel. Incredibly having not flipped over, spun out, having just missed a highway sign after making it 4 lanes over to the right, and at the last second finally turning the wheel left on mud and grass as you are about to go into trees that were hiding a ravine way down below the tree line. Hallelujah you're alive! Upon fear of a lawsuit and reviews such as this one; the car is "fixed" again this time by the owner after firing the drunken wannabe mechanic..Having tried to move on for months..you fast forward to this past week when you see the same negligent "mechanic" hired to work there again by a more reckless and negligent owner. Amen. Don't go to them...if it happened once...and to quote the owner verbatim.."this should never have happened".....the likelihood is greater going to A&M Auto that it will happen again. Hence...AVOID. Thanks for listening!

Love,

Your local Mario Andretti ; )
