Football Player Says Tara's Car Shop Ripped Him Off
Antwane Glenn, a football player at the University of Kentucky, wants a refund after his car was left un-drivable following Black Widow Customs' work on it. He contacted WHAS11 and the story was profiled on this week's Consumer Watch.
In addition to losing $2,000, Glenn is also stuck with a dangerous vehicle. Two independent mechanics have said that he needs to put emergency brakes on it. Glenn adds that a Lexington custom car shop told him the job was poorly done.
WHAS11 wanted to find out if the car was unsafe, so they took it to an unnamed Louisville mechanic, and didn't tell him where the work was done.
"Okay, the suspension on this vehicle has been raised with a special raise kit, which raises it somewhere between 7-12 inches," explained WHAS11's car expert. "That is very dangerous and this car cannot be driven like this."
Black Widow Customs has been customizing cars in Louisville since 2008. The business is owned by Varon, and her husband Lee.
