My brakes were locking up and I got into Veloce quicker than Ron Tonkin. Asked for an oil change and to replace 2 bulbs and a seat switch. They got the cruise control working, but my car leaked oil after changing a seal ($50). They wired the lighter and door locks incorrectly after changing the dash bulbs, disabling them, but the horror was, upon pulling out of their tiny garage, my brakes locked up!
Half my thousand-dollar bill was spent on brake repairs.
Chagrinned, the owner suggested I just stop using the e-brake. Probably out of embarassment, I was not notified that the cable I'd needed was ready to be installed. The e-brake lever still does not set right.
So much for the test drive.
Pros: respects Alfa Romeos, be ready to chat a lo
Cons: be ready to chat a lo, air quality in garage, inattentive
