The panel covering the fuel door on my very old Volvo came off the other day, because part of the back had worn out. It was otherwise OK.
I called Volvo. They wanted $140 for a new and unpainted part, plus over $100 to then paint the new part — plus a labor charge (TBD).
I went to a place in Southport that wanted $100 to re-attach the fuel door. They asked me to make an appointment, and come back another day.
I then stumbled upon Westport Auto Craft on Riverside Avenue.
I had never been there before, and I did not know anyone there.
They were very, very busy. But Rich was very happy to help.
In less than 5 minutes Tommy had reapplied the part, and I was on my way.
And — get this — they did not charge me a penny.
Thank you, Westport Auto Craft!
I — and many others — have had great experiences there too. Westport Auto Craft is well deserving of this week’s Unsung Hero honors. If you know a worthy nominee, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
