Complaint: Brian Clary was hired on Friday Feb. 13, 2015 to replace the clutch on my 1996 Jeep Cherokee. He removed the transmissionon on friday. On saturday he was supposed to come that morning to finish the job. The parts arrived and Brian never showed up. On Sunday, I called him numerous times and he kept saying he was on his way. He never showed up on Sunday. On Monday he said he would show up first thing. At 12pm Brian still had not showed up. He finally comes around 3pm, and then leaves again and comes back at 430pm. He claims he has to buy a jack to lift the transmission and I pay him 85, so at this point I have paid him more than 3/4 of the money for the job. He leaves a couple of hours later after claiming that the job would be done by 10pm. At 8pm he says he is leaving to come back the next day. Today the 17th, he does not show up until 1pm, I discovered that he cut my clutch stick in two places and I confronted him and he said dont worry I will weld it back. I still dont know why he would do that in the first place. He spilled oil all over the driveway and claimed he would clean it. Finally at around 6pm, he claims the job is done, and asks for the rest of the money plus another 20 for the gear oil. I told him I wanted to drive it first.The clutch pedal went right to the floor and was very loose. I heard clanging noise under the jeep and the exhaust which was perfect sounded like there was a hole in it. My Jeep was in perfect condition except the throw out bearing went out on the clutch. I questioned Brian, have you ever done this before, he claimed he had but I felt he was lying. He lied about showing up over and over. I drove the car for 15 minutes and attempted to put it into 2nd gear and the clutch stick broke off into my hand. I had to coast it in 1st to a stop and then tow it. Now I will have to redo the whole job. While I was looking up his name on google I discovered another craigslist post that he ripped off someone in december of over 2300 dollars. I am going to report him to the state.
