I live in the neighborhood and thought that it would be convenient to take my car in for new brakes. My car made a grinding noises which I know is not good and did not want to drive far to a mechanic. The mechanic told me all rotors and pads needed to be replaced. I couldn't afford that so I went with new front rotors and new pads all around. I talked to my brother in law who sold me the car and he said he had the rotors and pads replaced a year ago. So I went back to see for myself and only one rotor was grinding down and the others were perfectly fine. Watch out for your pocket book these guys are out to rob you!

I have taken two cars I've owned there once my warranties were out. They've also fixed problems that my dealer did not fix (days after normal maintenance completed at dealer) and always diagnosed whatever needed fixing. They have always had the best prices and whenever they had to repair anything, I did not have to return. They would even tell me what should be repaired by the dealer vs. them so that I wouldn't void the warranties. They also told me if they could not fix something for me without charge. Once they even called my husband who had repairs done and sent him money back because they overcharged him. That does not sound shady to me. I will always go to them if and when I have a car problem.

I?VE HAD IT UPTO MY THROAT. AM I BEING RIPED OFF OR IS THE MECHANIC JUST SIMPLY MAKING HONEST MISTAKES? BEING AWAY FROM MY CAR FOR THREE YEARS AND COMING BACK TO IT, I NOTICED IT NEEDED QUITE A BIT OF MAINTANCE. WHO DO I GO TO FOR THOSE MAINTANCE? WELL, MY NEIGHBORHOOD 76 GAS STATION. SURE! THEY WERE ABLE TO FIX QUITE A BIT OF PROBLEMS. I ALSO ASKED FOR A FULL INSPECTION AND OIL CHANGE. TOTAL AMOUNT THAT I SPENT THAT PARTICULAR DAY WAS NEAR $2000. NOT A WEEK LATER I HAD TO BRING IT BACK IN BECAUSE MY ENGINE WAS MAKING A LOUD SQWEELING NOISE. THE 76 TOLD ME IT WAS THE BELT PULLY AND CAM POSITION SENSOR. I PAID THEM ANOTHER $55 TO FIX THE PROBLEM. A WEEK LATER, THE NOISE CAME BACK. THIS TIME I WAITED TWO MORE WEEKS HOPING THAT THE NOISE WILL GO AWAY. WELL, IT GOT WORST AND I BROUGHT IT BACK TO THEM AGAIN. THEY CHECKED IT AND TOLD ME THIS TIME IT?S THE CAMSHAFT SYNCHRONIZER AND WATER PUMP DRIVE BELT. ONCE AGAIN, I TOLD THEM TO FIX IT AND PAID THEM ANOTHER $210. LESS THAN A WEEK LATER, MY SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON. AT THIS POINT, I WAS FURIOUS. I WENT BACK TO THE 76 GAS STATION AGAIN AND HAVE THEM CHECKED THE PROBLEM. THEY TOLD ME THAT IT WAS A VACUUM LEAK AND ASKED IF I CAN LEAVE MY CAR OR BRING IT BACK THE NEXT DAY. I WAS DEFINIATELY NOT GOING TO LEAVE MY CAR THERE AGAIN OR GET MAINTANCE. I JUST LEFT AND MADE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE BOB BAKER FORD IN MISSION VALLEY. I TOLD THEM WHAT THE 76 GAS STATION HAD TOLD ME ABOUT MY CAR. THEY SERVICE MY CAR AND TOLD ME THAT THE TEST DISPLAYED FOUND FUEL TRIM OUT OF SPEC. TRACE TO EGR VALVE GASKET NOT INSTALLED PROPERLY CAUSING AIR LEAK MEANING WHO EVER MAINTANCE LASTED DIDN?T INSTALL THE PART CORRECTLY CAUSING THE LEAKAGE. THEY PERFORMED A MULTI-POINT INSPECTION AND REPORTED, ?ALL FLUIDS ARE DIRTY, AIR FILTER FILTY, RECOMMEND OIL CHANGE, TRANSITION HAS LEAK, BRAKE FLUSH FLUID DIRTY.? MY RESPONSE BACK TO THE FORD SERVICE GUY WAS, ?MY OIL WAS CHANGED LAST MONTH ALONG WITH THE AIR FILTER.? I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, ?WHAT THE HECK DID I PAY THE 76 GAS STATION TO DO? THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO TAKE CARE OF ALL THAT STUFF. THAT IS THE WHOLE REASON WHY I ASKED THEM TO DO AN INSPECTION AND FIX ANY NECESSARY MAINTANCE THAT NEEDED PRIORTY ATTENTION SUCH AS AN OIL CHANGE. NOW YOU TELL ME, AM I BEING RIPED OFF OR THE MECHANIC AT THE 76 GAS STATION IS SIMPLY NOT PERFECT AND PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES!

PROS: THEY DO A GOOD JOB ON TELLING ME WHAT THE PROBLEMS ARE
CONS: WHY IS THERE ALWAYS SOMETHING WRONG WITH MY CAR AFTER THEIR MAINTANCE

We bought a truck that had passed smog with no problems. They replaced a couple sensors for over four hundred dollars and then said the truck BARELY passed and they should do more work otherwise it wouldn't pass again. I think they jimmied something so the test failed and then charged a lot to fix i-- it could have been fixed elsewhere for less but the previous owner was charged with paying for the fix-it fee. Two years later, the smog had to be redone at a different place, where it passed no problem.

PROS: did the work
CONS: possibly shady
