Lawyer time...

Wisconsin Laws regarding vehicle repairs...

"Repair Charges: Unlocking the Mystery
Wisconsin car repair shops must get your authorization for any repair and must offer you an estimate if repairs will cost $50 or more.

No unauthorized repairs are allowed. But if you drop off your car before the shop opens with a note to repair something - and you don't ask them to call you with an estimate - the shop can charge what it wants".

When calling for additional authorization, the shop must tell you both the cost for the additional repairs and the new total cost of the complete job".

Could be a tough fight...with the ability of the law allowing a shop to do what they wish if you instructed them to fix it...ouch
