INSTIGATING UNNECESSARY PROBLEMS 3/29/2010

Rating: Negative stars\r Earlier today I stopped in for an inspection, and passed, everything with my car was fine...\r Except Peter mentioned that my front brakes sounded funny. So I mentioned I had my oil change a week ago at my regular service provider, and my car was in tip top shape according to them.\r I said, I wouldn't mind taking a second opinion, and he could see if something was wrong with my front brakes.\r Two hours later, no call, I decided I needed to get my car before they closed. I went, and Peter was no longer there, and the employees had no idea what was checked or done on my car (awful service). The employee wouldn't give me my keys with out calling Peter, he got on the telephone with me and asked what was going on?... I said I'm here to pick up my car, did you check my breaks? I didn't get a call from you and I need my car for work tomorrow. He said he didn't check my breaks (HELLO WHAT DID YOU HAVE ME LEAVE MY CAR HERE FOR?). He also said that they couldn't start my car when they were moving it to park, and had to jump it. I was appalled, and questioned why my car didn't start and needed a jump, and they had no answers. After this, I was so disgusted and decided I would never bring my business there again. Their have been no previous issues with starting my car.\r I took my keys to leave, and tried to start my car and IT WOULDN'T START!\r I have NEVER had issues starting my car, nor with my battery. My car was running perfectly before I left it there.\r I don't know what they did to my car, if the left it sitting with the battery on, and killed the battery, or if they tampered with something.\r I only wish I had read their reviews before letting them touch my car. \r I suggest no one give them the pleasure of your business, it's a recipe for disaster.\r Pros: First impression: very polite Cons: Organization, communication, service, DISASTER more

Go for an inspection here - if you want to fail for ridiculous reasons! 7/25/2008

I needed a place to get an inspection and figured this was close by. I waited the 1/2 hour for the inspection. I spoke to the owners and they seemed nice. After the inspection, the guy said my tires were old but that was it. He said he could replace them for $70 a tire, but I declined and drove off, thinking that I passed. The guy did not give me any inspection report. Later I realized that I failed the inspection. I went back to the gas station and asked why. He said my tires were worn. After a long discussion, he finally agreed to give me the inspection report which passed on every point except ""TIRES - VISUAL"". Again he reiterated that I should get my tires changed there for $280 - all four tires needed to be changed. My tires never went flat, and I have religiously gone to Jiffy Lube every 3,000 miles to have them inflate/look at the tires and no one has ever indicated I had any problem. The fact that he failed to give me the ridiculous inspection report (failure because of one person's subjective visual judgement) just shows how these people will do anything to make a buck off of you. Lastly, the sign says the inspection is $29, but they actually charge you $35 after they fail you - and they will always fail you. \r \r Cons: everything more

Scammed.... 6/2/2008

Honestly if I could give this gas station less than one star I would. This place is so scummy I have stopped going to get my gas there, and want to warn people of the possibilty of getting taken advantage of....Heres my situation which I hope would deter any smart person from ever stopping here... I got my car FULLY serviced at a respectable auto dealer. They didnt do sticker inspections, so I took it to my local gas station (Commonwealth Gulf). The owner Paul said I had major exhaust problem, and it would be very expensive, but he will ""hook me up"" because he knows I bought gas there a bunch. I decided to get a second opinion so I took it to TWO auto service places, both said I had ZERO problems with my exhaust, and that there was no doubt Paul was trying to scam me. The scam was so absurb, one man from an auto service place said ""never bring it to gas stations to get your car fixed. They dont know there [butt] from a tire."" To wrap it up, I brought it back into Commonwealth Gas (so i didnt have to pay an extra amount for the sticker), and told Paul everything was all fixed up (when indeed nothing had been changed at all). And what do you know...everything PASSED. So much for that very expensive exhaust pipe... more

They take two days and $140 to replace a car battery! 11/14/2007

Heading says it all. I had my car towed there, and they ripped me off. I asked them to call me before doing the work, but they didn't. They just ripped me off. Also, who takes two days to replace a car battery? Ridiculous. more

They will rip you off 11/14/2007

I had my car towed there, and they charged me $140 for a battery replacement. They didn't even call before doing the work, as I asked them to do. They just forced me to pay $140 for a freaking car battery. Unbelievable. Don't go. They'll rip you offf. Cons: High cost, rip off more
