beware of larry's imports hampton roads area

they put a used fuel tank in for me, after ocean audio drilled a hole in the original one. after i got my car back, the metal panel that goes in front of the tank in the trunk was bent up in one spot, and it was missing a bolt as well. what really sucks is my fuel sender unit never worked properly after i got the car back...the low fuel light doesn't come on (except when i start the car when it does a self-check of all the lights), and now when it reads 1/8 of a tank, it actually is empty. i have run out of fuel twice because of larry's...once because of the low fuel light not working, and once because the gauge is inaccurrate. steer clear of this shop!

Question Did you call them?

I'm curious; Did you ever call them or go back and ask them to fix what they did? I mean, a dent is easy to take care of, but from experience, the fuel sender is a PITA sometimes. Plus, it's a $200.00 part. I would think that any reputable shop would fix their own mistakes.
