    Let's try this another way. You put a dent in your Camaro, bummer, not the end of the world. The highly respected and best body shop in your area says, no prob, we can fix your fender for $2000, you don't want your insurance to go up, so you say ok, go ahead. A week later the shop calls, we got some bad news, this is a very limited edition fender and it's gonna cost $20,000. We have your car, and we're charging you storage until you agree to pay our bill.

      I find it odd that the high end repair shop doesn't have their Aston Martin certs to buy Aston Martin parts. Kind of defeats the purpose of sending people there.

          "I want a refund (from the dealer),”

          If I crashed into a rock in an Aston Martin, I would want to return it without consequences and walkaway from it, too

            OK, your scenario makes zero sense. A limited edition fender?

                That's the point, they gave her one estimate, then once they had the very valuable, very expensive car in their possession they changed the estimate. Probably slapped a mechanic's lien on it and started charging storage. Sorry lady, pay your bill or we're keeping your car. Hard to say what she signed or agreed to, but it sure sounds like they're taking advantage of her.

                      es·ti·mate
                      verb
                      verb: estimate; 3rd person present: estimates; past tense: estimated; past participle: estimated; gerund or present participle: estimating
                      ˈestəˌmāt/


                      noun
                      noun: estimate; plural noun: estimates
                      ˈestəmət/
                      1.
                      an approximate calculation or judgment of the value, number, quantity, or extent of something.

                      It wasn't a quoted price, it was an estimate. They start taking the car apart, and find more damage than they expected, the estimate goes up. Are you unable to comprehend the definition of "estimate"?
