Mechanic Victor at Walmart
moonhill posted a topic in Ajijic/Chapala/GuadalajaraI went to Walmart this morning and when I returned to my car it wouldn't start. The gear shift was stuck and I couldn't get in gear so nothing happened. In mere seconds a guy appeared saying he was a mechanic and had his tools with him, he could fix it. I said he could take a look. He popped the hood, then crawled under and announced I had a broken cable, he could fix it. I decided to go ahead since he quoted 350 pesos. Five minutes later I was on my way. Does anybody know this guy? He claims to have been "working" the Walmart parking lot for 12 years. Is he legit and saved me from being towed to a mechanic, or did he rig it while I was in the store? I've lived here 15 years and thought I knew every scam.
