The brakes on my 1989 Olds 88 (80,000 miles) went out, and I had to leave my car in another town, an hour away, have a friend come to get me, have my car towed to a shop w/one good review on the Web--although later I found an excellent BBB rating.
<br/> They are replacing rusted seeping brake & fuel lines to the tune of about $500 labor & 136 parts. With tow & tax it may well come to $700.
<br/> The repair shop owner told me on phone they have 9 hours of labor in, and at the point he said that they hadn't got the fittings to the cylinders off and were going to soak them in Twister over the weekend.
<br/> I told him I want all the old parts and I want to speak with the technician who worked on my car when I come to get it Monday.
<br/> Am I being ripped off? What can I do?
