How Gazzuzz charged me by AjStylles: 7:48pm On Jan 12
Ordinarily, I wouldn't open this thread because I know the normal Nigerian syndrome of always attacking people when you criticize those they hero worship. But anyways, who cares.

The major reason I decided to put this out here is that I believe that as this Gazzuzz is a known mechanic on this Nairaland, a lot of people might have have fallen for his antics thinking that he is a pro and all that. Many people take whatever he says as the final and thats why he feeds and preys on the gullible.

Recently I contacted gazzuzz that my corolla was vandalized and I needed repairs to be done on it. He asked me what was taken in it. I told him that I lost my brainbox and all four power window controllers. I now told him I needed them replaced and requested the price for everything. Gazzuzz told me that he changes brainbox with 50,000 and Power windows for 30,000. Total of 80,000! As usual with his antics, he was making subtle statements to make me feel that what he does is different from what others does and he is this perfect mechanic. If you observe, most of his threads is always about Kazeem this and that. I became weak in the spirit. Because I thought that I really lost a lot to this armed robbers. I felt that as he is an "Authority" in this line, what he says is the truth.

3 days ago, I decided to use my hand and make some research. Guess what? I went to First Gate at Agidinbi based on a friends recommendation. Come and see Sea of Mechanics looking for work! 90% of them were also professionals! With only 30,000, I was able to replace all the power windows and the brainbox! With extra 5k, I changed the back glass that was broken! Aint God a miracle worker?

This implies that Gazzuzz was actually willing to rip me off by a whole 50k!

Like I said earlier, am putting this out here for others to learn from my experience. Most of these Lagos mechnics are armed robbers and thieves! Please Nairalanders, always use your hand and do some research. Do not allow petty mechanics to rip you off. That they know a thing or two about the computronics of cars does not make them to be better than those without formal education. Ask questions always and look for other alternatives.

Most of these so called mechanics we look down as road sides or Kazeems are actually better than the so called experts. The so called experts will use packaging and rip you off your hard earned cash. If not that I was willing to step out and ask questions, I would have been boxed into a corner by this huge ripoff called Gazzuzz.

N.B
[b]To the charlatans saying I bought stolen parts....
FYI, I never bought stolen parts! Even some mechanics like the person in question gets items by scrap too. Is it not possible container came in and they got the item at cheap rates? Or is it not possible they scraped a car with a dead Engine? FYI, my car is fully insured! I didnt want to wait on insurance because they were taking my time. Same hillbilly that was posted here about cars being programmed... Its also being done at first gate Agidingbi. Professional programmers plenty there. Please do not be deceived by greedy capitalists. If your car is vandalized, go to first gate. They have proffessionals too! They scan your car. I towed my car to that place and no stranger came to my house. Please do not be scared of no criminal. Don't allow any charlatan to use fear factor and make you go for ripoffs! Same people here telling you they scan bla bla will still go to that first gate and buy items cheap they will sell costly to you! Please go and verify. You also get it cheap there.[/b]

lmao! @op sometimes to get the best, with peace of mind, you just need to be willing to pay more. I believe the extra charges were for the top quality service he's rendering. Certainly, there's a difference in level of professionalism, standard, quality of materials/parts and excellent customer experience when you pay N50,000. Besides, who knows if you bought fake or substandard parts from "Kazeem". Gazzuzz did not rip you off.

NB: I am not a fan, follower, admirer or defender of the accused

He actually didn’t try to scam you, he only told you what he charges for his services. It’s a good thing to tried else where to compare prices, and it paid off for you. There are other times too when this your approach can backfire badly. I’ve been in both sides of the divide.

Congrats you won this time around!

@AjStylles,


this thread is totally unnecessary.


Gazzuzz simply gave you his quotation for the job you needed to be done.



That you choose an alternative which was cheaper than the quotation given to you by Gazzuzz does not make him a scam artist.


Gazzuzz is a well known figure here. He is not a scam artist!

Concerning your outburst.. Your statement is null and void and devoid of any intelligence.. Like others rightly said. If you can't afford it. Do not make noise..i tire oo

Research.

Please do not be deceived by greedy capitalists. If your car is vandalized, go to first gate Agidingbi. They have proffessionals too! They scan your car.

The essence of this thread is to teach people that most mechanics are ripoffs. You can get some of there quoted prices at far cheaper rates. Take your time and research. There are more cheaper people who do better jobs. Am not saying Kazeems and quacks don't exist or don't abound. But don't use because you fear them and fall into the hands of professional ripoffs. Take this to the bank.

Almost, Nearly doesn't count.

I have gotten over 3 quotations on car repairs from GAZZUS but never patronized him for once.

Guess what, I am the one always regretting not patronizing him in all instances as I ended up spending more after getting lower quotations from other garages.

Simple analogy.

Bought a front brake pad worth 13,500 today and was to be despatched to Abuja. Wanted to use a cheaper transport coy but was too tired to go there. GIG logistics was close so I decided to stop by. They charged me 2,600 for sumtin the other pple will take 1k.(160%).
I chose GIG and they sent me an alert immediately n the break pad was also insured against theft/damage. Beneficiary will also be notified as soon the item is available for pickup.

If I had opted for the other coy, I will collect the driver's no. Track him all the way. Call the beneficiary to be on standby for pickup and all that. If anything happens to the item, na my worry be dat. Even if they want to replace it, nobody go buy break pad of 13,500.

You ve to pay for premium service. Go ask radautoworks the cost of replacing your stolen item, u will see anoda level.

I am not supporting GAZZUZZ but he has at different times given out numbers of his suppliers on this forum to pple. No black (naija man) does that. For someone who uses VIN check to buy engine, sure the price can't be regular as that of a kazeem.

The advice to anyone incurring any expense is to get multiple quote and take decision. You have done that. Move on

Fucvk Yall!

. let me take out a little time and educate the house.

the toyota corrola 2002-2008 is produced in more than one country.

First thing to do is to match the VIN to the engine ecu.

Corrolas come equipped with the following options.

1. Immobiliser unit
2. Abs unit
3. SRS airbag unit
4. Evaporation emission system
5. TPMS system
6. Catalytic converter system.
7. A/C unit.


Now not every corrola is built with these systems, that is why it is imperative that a vin match is done before an ECU replacement.

Now the average road side mechanic is only interested in 1 thing, which is the vehicle starting. He cares less about the check engine light or how secure vehicle is after it starts, that's why the ecu that overrides the immobiliser is the roadsides mechanics first choice, it makes his work easy and he does not have to re-programme the system. Sadly it's a poor choice bearing in mind the rate at which corrolas are stolen in nigeria (lagos in particular)

Next are the other gremlins that come with a wrong ecu match. Imagine installing an engine ecu for a car equipped with an evaporative emission system, with an ecu that does not have support for it or vice versa? You see people complain all the time about fuel consumption and erratic vehicle behavior and you feel it is village people?

I will like to round up with this.

Agidingbi first gate is a large mechanic village with shops right in front. It is not a go-go place for engine ecu purchase. I am certain the complainants vehicle was not driven there, rather he went there and picked up a total stranger and took the person to the location of his vandalised vehicle which would be his home, the stranger put a part that started the car and did not provide any guarantees or receipts. If that stranger appears at your door another day with the police and points at you I am sorry you are in deep trouble, if that stranger who now knows where you live tracks your car down and organises to have it stolen you would have no case against him.

I run a workshop, my rent is in six figures, I pay taxes and so do my staff there is no way I would charge same with the road side mechanic, I would also do a much better job any day.

Thank you.
