I was told a certain mechanic in my area was trustworthy.
He wanted to charge over $700 to replace the ball joints on my truck.
I thought this was a bit high but my wife convinced me he was trustworthy.
After getting the truck back in his shop he calls us to inform us that it is leaking radiator fluid and he needed to drop the pan to check it out. Thing is… he wants to charge a thousand dollars to do this… claiming it will take 8 hours work… first of all… $1k for 8 hours really? doesn’t that seem a bit high to anyone else? Second, 8 hours to drop a pan, really… how many coffee breaks involved in that 8 hours?
I have concluded this mechanic is a crook just our to bilk me for more money than this car is worth…
I am planning on writing a review on this mechanic in the mechanics files when I get my truck back.
Are all mechanics crooks like this one?
