My college student got taken to the cleaners! We had to tow it to a real mechanic to find out what was really going on. He can do all kinds of the repairs they were demanding for what he paid for already! It started with a $500 repair then they upped it to 800, then $1500, 3000 and total 8000! Luckily we stopped them at $800. He drove it in and we had to tow it off their property! Don’t take my word for it, ask around!
I want to make sure the truth is told. We looked at the vehicle for a noise. Found a defective wheel bearing. Sold the bearing and repaired the noise, upon test drive we applied the brakes and a hydraulic line failed. We charged you for the line because we did not rust out the line and no matter how hard anyone hits the brakes you can not cause a line to fail unless it is already damaged. We attempted to repair the one line and could not get the bleeder screw open to the caliper the line leads to. Sold that as well. After repairs we bled the brake system and another line failed. At that point we could no longer safely patch the system together and quoted all lines hoses and calipers( because all other calipers where not opening up either) the quote for the brakes did reach up to 3500 or so. The reason the other quotes where written is because the vehicle had lots of things that could be fixed. I wish there was more we could have done and we tried hard to get you going at a reasonable price, but replacing a entire system on any vehicle is expensive. I hope you where able to get what you where looking for. Thank you
