Run for your life ... and your wallet. 12/2/2006

Run for your life and your wallet. I had a chirping noise coming from my engine. It took them forever to diagnose the problem but finally concluded that my timing belt was about to go. I felt this was a bit premature for the miles but not necessarily the age of my car. So not wanting to tempt the fate of a timing belt, I let them replace it to the tune of $855!!!! They quoted the job at $725 prior to work. That's another story. Of course, I drive away as they are closing shop for the night. I'm not two blocks away and the noise still exists. I take it back the next day and am met with all kinds of excuses. They ended up properly diagnosing the problem -- something with my a/c. They did that $350 job for free and a long list of apologies. But to get slapped with an $850 repair which was unnecessary had me seeing red. I understand I needed to replace my timing belt some time in the near future but not when I'm told I'm playing with fire if I drive off the lot without replacing it. That's an expense most of us need to budget. I could have done without that for another year or so. Since then, I have made it my mission to find a suitable repair shop. I found Haas Inc through a Google search. I have nothing to say but nice things about the guys. Their prices are reasonable and the men are not condescending. The other day, Haas charged me $3 for a bulb and no labor to gain access to the lamp. I was having other work done while I was there. But I'm sure had I been at Carr's they would have pinched another $50 out of me. Go to Haas Inc. They're on Montrose near Elston. more
