20yrs we went there my grandmother, my mother, myself, went in for an oil change this year and everything changed they charged to top things off something they never use to do, there was 33 point check they use to do now they charge you for an estimate. came to 70 bucks my mom came home crying being on fixed income
than myself I know I got a new battery as he didn't give me receipt I can't prove anything and its still under warranty..I don't for see long time customer sticking around for ghetto shop most drove into town just to see as they trusted him. no more sadly ...I'm sure the own Rob will try and blast me just like the guy below but his story seems to ring true after what I went through the last year with him sorry rob
The Problem was basically a high temp gage which was caused by low radiator fluid. An honest mechanic should see it right away. The manager charged me $67.72 for diagnostics at an half hour of work. The charge included $13.74 for toping off the radiator fluid. The manager said that he did not have the time to do a radiator flush that day and said that I should come back tommorow. I asked how much the Flush and Fill will be if I came back the next day and he qouted me $156.85.
This would be a total charge of $224.57. At least he should have deducted the top off fluid it was his request that I delay the flush and fill for tommorow. An honest mechanic would have charged. Having been qouted the $156.85 figure I knew it was a big time ripoff. A truely honest mechanic would have done a basic radiator flush and fill for $79.00.
I politely decline the next day appointment for the radiator flush and fill and paid for the "diagnostics" It was such an obvious ripoff I had to write this review and I have never done a review of anything before! Two days later I bought some radiator flush and radiator fluid from Walmart for under $12.00 and DID IT MYSELF! What is upseting is that they advertise themselves as honest mechanics in the Yellow Pages. My honest experence is the total opposite. Stay away from these "honest mechanics".
I as a business owner try to have my clients best interests in mind at all times. We were extremely busy. I did some quick checks on his vehicle and got him squeezed in and back on the road. He was more interested in getting the car back quickly then fixing it right. It also had the wrong coolant in it and would need to be completely flushed and changed over. This is the thanks I get for helping him? I understand that money is tight, but if you don't repair a car correctly its going to come back and cost you more. Honestly if he was so capable of doing it cheaper and by himself, why couldn't he diagnose his own problem. Oh well I can't please everyone, but I sure do like to try.
After trying several other shops in the area for an ongoing problem with my vehicle, I finally settled on Weigman's Automotive for service. The guys there treated me so well, and explained everything to me before ANY work was ever done. They were able to diagnose the problem quickly and efficiently and then fix it right! My vehicle not only runs better than it ever had in the past, but not I have myself a life long automotive repair facility to depend on.
A very satisfied customer!
