My review on Christian Brother Automotive on West Rd in North West Houston
I took my car to Christian Brother Automotive because I was having A/C problems. I figure it was from walking distance to where I could leave the my car and walk home.
Once there I explain to the guy the problem I was having with the AC not blowing any air out vents and that the compressor wasn't coming on.
2 hours later the guy inside handed me a print out with the problems they found with the A/C and a price breakdown to fix it.
They said my the compressor was bad and the blower fan had somehow burned.
replace blower motor = $109 + 115.90 for labor
replace A/C compressor, EVAC/Recharge system, RECV DRIER, AND RE PROGRAM BODY = $575.68 + LABOR $513.00
+ 39.73 in supply and sale tax $52.57
for a total of $1406.59
I walk out paying them $39.58 for the inspection.
I decided to get a second option before spending all this money, so I took my car to a different automotive shop.
To make a long story short within 20 minutes the owner came out and told me that the A/C was working, blower was blowing air and the compressor was coming on, but I should replace the blower motor connector "wire" it somehow had melted so it wasn't making good connection with the blower.
And if I wanted to I should replace the blower also since the wire melted the connector on the blower.
His total price including inspection, parts (wire connectors and new blower), labor and tax included was $275.
I wish I had done some reviews before paying the $39.58 dollars to Christian Brother Automotive.
