I was taken for a ride by these guys. I had my Saab towed here for $150 diagnostic fee, which they said would be waived if they did any work on it. They put me off for several days, didn't have time to look at the car. Then told me it was an $850 repair and needed to move immediately because the car had been on their lot so long -- even though that was their fault.

I let them do the repair, they ran my payment in advance, and tried to get me out the door as quickly as possible when I picked up the vehicle. When I checked the fee, the $150 was charged to me and they wouldn't agree to take it off. Then, on the road, I see that the speedometer is broken -- Ted & Al's had broken it or disconnected it when repairing the other parts.

They made a big show about inspecting it when I took it back, and claimed they hadn't broken it. However, they'd be happy to fix it for $500!

These guys are textbook sleazy mechanics. Don't go here.

I brought in an '89 Suzuki Samurai -(recently tuned up at nother mechanic, btw).

It had lost compression and died- I figured it was the timing belt.

First, they tell me a diagnostic will be $150. Ok, then the next day he comes back and tells me that it MIGHT be the timing belt. The $150 was a PRELIMINARY diagnostic- It will be another $240 for a THOROUGH diagnositc.

So, nearly $400 later, he tells me "Good news, the valves are good, but the timing belt and muffler need to be replaced"

Ok, I figure that shouldnt run too much. He says with parts and labor it will be over $1,500!

WTF! the jeep isnt even worth that much in perfect shape. Ive NEVER in my life heard of a timing belt and muffler being close to that much. And that b.s. "preliminary" diagnositc?

-STAY AWAY. They are DISHONEST CHEATS.

PROS: NONE- They seem real friendly and honest at first- but will screw you!
CONS: a $200 repair job anywhere else will cost $600 at T&A's, Fake diagnostics
