I wish once we could get caught up without getting a huge hit!

We took our car in for an oil change and brakes thinking it would be $300 max. Nope. Its $990! I told DH take it somewhere else, get another quote and he is stubborn and is just going to keep it there... There goes my redecorating for the new place!

 Unless it is an expensive foreign car, they are getting screwed. Bad.

Its an infinity? I think we are getting way over charged. He just wants the car done. Thats too much for brakes, an oil change and roaters (sp?) right? Front and back? I had a car before and it was around 300, thats why I thought it would be that much!

 Wow. Mental note. Never buy an Infinity.. :( Your parts are about 600 dollars. For pads, rotors, etc.. Ouch. I would still try to get another quote and I would also look into buying the parts online. You can get them cheaper and the mechanic cannot mark them up..

 GM's, Fords, Chryslers etc will have cheaper parts.. I learned my lesson with a GLI Volkswagen. The parts were a killer.
