I have a Nissan XTerra. I took it to a Nissan dealer in Mpls to check the brakes & shocks as things were squeaking. They called me 3 hours later with a $2500 ""must do"" estimate. Uhhh.... what?? They told me the exhaust manifold was leaking in 2 places and would be $1500 to repair. Add brakes, transmission flush, power steering hose leak and a $219 electronic repair I didn't know I needed and it added up to the $2500. Shocks could wait they said, this was critical. I took it to AUTO PROS OF CHASKA. I told them the same thing I told Nissan about brakes & shocks. The manager (or owner?) Gary called me with the estimate. Just under $250 for new brakes. Shocks were fine, I was just hearing the brakes he was sure, so I didn't need those. The rear brakes also had several miles left on them. I mentioned about the exhaust manifold. He said they detected a small leak on the right side, but nothing serious. Would be $281 to REPLACE (note.. not fix!!) it, and he'd handle it if I wanted him too. WOW - what a difference from Nissan. They were going to rip me off. Thanks Auto Pros. Highly highly recommended. As a female it is especially important to know I can take my car to someone I trust. These guys are awesome.
Pros: Honest, saved me $$$, Completed on time, follow up calls as promised
