has anyone ever reported a mechanic because of the state inspection?
This past weekend I took my car over to Merchants tire and auto because I couldn't get my car into my normal mechanic and the sticker was about to expire. I told them up front i thought my brake pads needed to be replaced, Asked them to check the coolant because the light had come on and that I need the inspection. I had also told them that the radiator had been replaced at the beginning of the month so there really should have been enough coolant there. oh, and I asked for an oil change. I also needed the light bulb changed for my right front turn signal but I forgot to mention that.
So I get a call Saturday that my car was ready and it passed. I was surprised but thrilled. But then I drove my car and realized the light was still out and my brakes did not feel right to me. I am dropping my car off at my normal mechanic on Wednesday to have them check the brakes and then I will go from there. But I feel like I should report this place.
I did call them and told they missed the light bulb and asked if I brought it back if there would be a charge since this was their mistake. The guy started arguing with me until I mentioned the brakes then he was very agreeable. But I just hung up becaue I don't want them touching my car I will gladly pay my mechanic to replace the bulb. I will not be going back to the other place.
