Jury verdict dismissing claims for alleged unauthorized work done on auto transmission. Plaintiffs alleged violation of Consumer Fraud Act, premised on alleged violations of Automotive Repair Act. Court committed reversible error in refusing to give Plaintiffs' proposed jury instruction based on Section 75 of Repair Act, as without court giving such an instruction, jury could not make a finding that pursuant to that Section, Defendants' violations barred it from asserting a possessory lien on Plaintiffs' vehicle. (ROCHFORD and REYES, concurring.)
