Let me preface my rant with a disclaimer: I do not post these things to complain, normally. That being said, I called this place and asked how much to change my brake pads and rotors for my minivan. The guy, Mike, who is the owner tells me $300. I thought: Great price! So I get there, they put it up on the lift and tell me I do need four sets of pads and rotors. Price $600+ tax. I, a bit disappointed, said this is not what we discussed over the phone. He said that $300 was for just the front. Not mentioned during the phone conversation. I opted to not have the brakes done there and go to another local shop. This is where it goes downhill. They charge me $25 to look at the wheels. I attempted to plea my case but the owner, who thinks he can degrade and insult his customers, tells me I should have more common sense and know what is the going rate for brakes. I tell him that is the first and last time I step foot in there and tell him to enjoy my $25. He joyfully tells me he "doesn't need customers like me" and says "bye bye". I go to the other shop. I only need the back wheels done for $225. Good thing I had "common sense" to get the hell out of there and save myself and my family $375. It's a shame that auto mechanics still practice these tactics. Places like Sav On Auto give mom and pop shops a bad name.
