Repair Process

 

Vehicle Analysis: In this stage, technicians evaluate the vehicle and create a report listing all necessary repairs. This report details any damage or outstanding maintenance required, and includes expected repair costs. This report will be given to the customer and used to create the repair description and cost itemization for the contract. 

Additional Damage: During the repair process, additional problems may be uncovered. In the event that TGA Performance technicians discover the need for repairs outside of those listed on the contract, work on the vehicle will cease, and written notification of required repairs will be sent to the customer. TGA Performance will not perform any repairs outside of those listed on the contract without prior written or verbal authorization from customer.  10% or $25.00 over the initial estimate is prematurely assumed authorized.

Parts: All old parts removed from the vehicle must be picked up within 24 hours upon removal; otherwise the customer forfeits all monetary value and they become the property of TGA to do as pleased.  This does not apply to any parts under warranty as those must be returned to the manufacture.  Customer must inform TGA they want old parts returned upon initial work order.  

Timeline:  An estimated timeline is given orally upon inspection to complete the requested repair.  Any additional work or parts deemed necessary will extend that initial timeline.  Any custom work to include high performance engine assembly does not come with a timeline due the custom nature.  Any custom, aftermarket, or internal engine repair/ additions must read and adhere to this statement: "I do not wish to receive any estimate, either written or oral, to which I am entitled by law.  Before repairs are authorized." 

 

Ordering Non-OEM Parts

 

Customer acknowledges that any repairs using parts not made by the vehicle's manufacturer may lead to the following:

Lease or Finance Violation: Some lease and finance contracts require the purchaser or lessee to make repairs using only original manufacturer parts. Aftermarkets parts used in repairs may violate these contracts. 

Decrease in Value: Repairs made using aftermarket parts may lead to increased depreciation and lost vehicle value. 

Manufacturer Warranty: Some vehicle manufacturers require that all repairs be made using only OEM parts. Use of aftermarket parts may void vehicle warranties. 

In recognition of the above risks, TGA Performance shall not use any parts for repairs unless those parts are approved for use by customer. It is advised that customer take the above risks into account when choosing parts necessary for repairs. 

While customer has the sole right to choose which parts are used for repairs, TGA Performance reserves the right to exercise professional judgement and refuse to make repairs using parts which are deemed inadequate or unsafe.
