The owner/manager sends people on the list threatening email? Wow. That's very interesting to know. Sounds like harrasment to me. >From now on, I will recommend to everyone I know to AVOID the Jag Shop at all costs based on negative comments by various aquaintences on and off the list. It's a simple risk vs. benefit analysis; The stated opinions of many fellow owners would indicate that the risk of entrusting my vehicle to this shop would outweigh "possible" benefit of having my collector's car repaired correctly in a timely, cost-effective manner. Word-of-mouth advertising, be it positive OR negative is not libel or slander, if you are only relating an experience you had to your friends. I caution against embellishment when you tell your story though. That's where the slander or libel enters. As for me, no one is going to sue -me- for slander or libel if all I'm doing is relating to others that people I know were not happy with the work done at the shop and received email threatening legal action for discussing the business habits of the shop. I'm glad you all have shared this with me. Now I know NEVER to use the Jag Shop for service and I'll be sure to tell all my fellow owners.

Try to dig in the archives. That may help.
