I WENT TO SAMUELL BLVD AND FOUND A TIRE SHOP. WHEN I CALLED THE PHONE NUMBER LISTED I SPOKE TO THE MANAGER AT ""FREDDIES AUTO TRANS"" AT 11607 HARRY HINES BLVD. I MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR 20 MINUTES LATER AND WENT STRIGHT OVER FOR REGULAR FLUID AND FILTER MAINTANCE. WHEN I GOT THEIR, JOE MET ME AT THE DOOR
WITH A CLIP BOARD AND FLOOR MAT IN HAND AND STARTED TAKING NOTES IMMEDIATELY.
HE GOT IN AND POPPED THE HOOD & CHECKED THE FLUIDS, ASKED A FEW QUESTIONS &
GOT ME COMFTORABLE IN THE WAITING LOBBY & SAID THIS SHOULD JUST TAKE 40 MINUTES OR SO. JOE DROVE MY CAR IMMEDIATELY THROUGH THE GATE AND PUT IT ON A LIFT AND TURNED THE CAR OVER TO SERVICE TECH. WHEN THEY GOT THE CAR IN THE AIR, JOE INVITED ME TO COME OUT TO THE SHOP WITH HIM AND GO OVER THE INSPECTION TOGETHER. WE CHECKED NEARLY EVERYTHING UNDER THE CAR AND FOUND A BAD U-JOINT (I WONDERED WHERE THE SQUEEK WAS COMING FROM) WE ALSO FOUND A COUPLE OF SMALL LEAKS FROM THE TRANS AND SOME ANTIFREEZE DRIPPING FROM THE BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE. I JUST HAD THE HOSE PUT ON A WEEK AGO I TOLD JOE. ""HE SAID DONT WORRY THE OTHER SHOP WITH IT WE WILL PUT A NEW CLAMP ON AND TOP OFF THE FLUIDS FOR THEM"" THE WHOLE REPAIR INCLUDING TRANS SERVICE, U-JOINTS, REAR SEAL AND SPEEDOMETER LEAK REPAIR, HOSE CLAMP, FLUIDS, AND ROAD TEST ONLY TOOK AN HOUR
AND 40 MINUTES & COST UNDER $200. I ALSO HAD A GREAT SANDWITCH AT QUIZNOS SUBS NEXT DOOR IN THE NEW MOON PLAZA AND DID SOME SHOPING TOO!

The manager was pretty knowlegeable up to a good point. But when talking to him in depth about the installation he understood what was neccesary. I believe he may know what he is doing but the actual on floor workers that they have are not very expertise in what the know. Leaving the job done on my vehicle requiring a 2nd visit to get the job done correctly.
