Well put. I stopped using "mechanics" for the most part after I took my '99 Trans Am in to have the window motor replaced. When I picked it up they had driven it 42 miles. Did I mention it was pushing 500rwhp. PISSED OFF would be putting it mildly.
thats why i dont use lawnmower mechanics to fix my car....ill suck it up and pay dealer prices where they are familiar with my specific make n model....i take my dodge to dodge, pontiac to the gm dealer, my wifes ford to ford, and my fury to the honda shop...real simple....no essay or diploma required!
if you have the time that'll work too....not for I...four little ones..two small businesses..coaching and broncos games on sundays, im strapped for time..lol...plus the wifey likes some luvin every now and then!
