Ras, thanks for that advice. I don't know how to say this politely, so I apologize in advance if it offends you in any way.
The reason why I'm here in this forum is to avoid being %& % by (greedy) mechanics who will charge you an arm and a leg, and your neck, brain, heart, and what ever else they can get out of you just to get the car diagnosed and (not even completely) fixed. Studies show that individuals who have taken their vehicle to the mechanic, end up going to the same mechanic 3 to four more times after the initial visit, for the same issue. This excludes visits for oil changes and stuff like that.
Not to mention the amount of bull*&$%* they give you to try and " up-sell' you into getting maintenance and/or repairs you don't even need. Please don't take this as a blanket statement for all mechanics. There are some good honest ones out there, I'm sure. I just haven't met or encountered one in my lifetime.
Thanks for your time.
