I wasn't talking about backyards shots. I used to have an old truck and a guy that worked for the town as the town mechanic worked part time out of his garage and charged $15 an hour. I've since bought new and have had no problems.
This is the kind of place I was referring to:
They charge around $55 for an alignment and I know they charge 5 or 6 bucks to rotate the tires. But they recommend an alignment every 6,000 miles while the dealer told me 30,000.
So listen to the discout shop and you'll spend $250 every 30,000 miles while having to take the car in 5 times as many times.
I don't mean to make it sound like dealers are the way to go. Every deal is different. Some treat people nice and charge somewhat fair prices while others are rip off artist. The dealer is the snake selling you the car, so .....
My point was the discout places don't do quality work from my experience but again, I don't know what Bob Summeral is.
Another reason why Seinfeld was a such a great show. This is another storyline they covered, finding a good mechanic. Brilliant.
