I sent my car to R&S for an oil change and was told that in addition the radiator was clogged with sludge and needed a flush. Had them go ahead and do that. When the car was picked up and the bill of almost $200 paid, we went sent away believing it was in good shape. No mention was made that a 2nd flush would be necessary. A week later I tested the antifreeze protection level and it tested at 20 degrees above 0. Also noticed a lot a dirt and debris in the radiator water. The car was taken back and the shop owner said for another $100 he'd flush it again. He also tested the antifreeze and said it was good for 10 degrees above 0, which should get us by for a couple weeks until it gets really cold. My receipt shows that 1.5 gallons of antifreeze was put in the car--at least I was billed for 1.5 gallons which should have better protection that this. This shop owners lack of concern for another $100 being spent to do another and have proper coolant protection is unacceptable. I will never use the shop again!!
They serviced and repair my car for years until I moved too far away to go to them. I was always pleased with the service I received. I wish I could find someone like Roger in Raleigh. He is the best! He would always work with you as far as your work schedule. I miss them!! I did not post a hourly rate and total cost because I cannot remember. But it was very resonalble compared to others around.
