Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng

Our Car was towed in by a machanic after a break down in Oct 2020. 

he quoted us R 20000 for repairs, we had to pay full amount before he could start with the repair

We have contacted him several times and he had all these emotional manipulating reasons why he could not fix the car. 

last week, he promised us the car will be ready today. Today he admitted that he does not have money to buy spares to fix our car. 

I have to rent a car to do my business. I am loosing money daily. What should I do?
