Sorry to hear about your problem.  I've had similar problems with insurance
company recommended places.  Needless to say, since the insurance company is
paying the bill, they want the lowest cost they can find.

That said, I usually never recommend getting laywers involved, but this, or
the threat of this, is in order.  Contact your state's insurance board,
consumer protection agency, etc. for advice.  I'd seek legal council it I
were you.  Even if the car was perfect now, I'd go after loss of use of the
vehicle for 7 months!  There's definitely a big expense there!  Good luck.
