I normally take my car to my mechanic friend... but one weekend he was away on vacation.

I was driving leisurely around town when smoke starts to shoot out of my hood. I quickly head home frantically look for an auto repair shop that is open on weekends. I came across A1 Auto (probably because it was first on the directory) and went over there. The person working the counter was actually the owner of the shop. He was a very nice guy and he took down all the symptoms of my car. I left my keys with him and walked to a restaurant to kill time.

An hour later, I received a phone call from the owner saying that my alternator is dying because oil is shooting out of my engine on to it which is creating the smoke effect. They said that I would need a new alternator, a new gasket seal, and new alternator belts which comes out to around $450. I had just replaced my alternator a year prior and I couldn't believe that I would need another one so soon. I paid the $52 dollars to get my car back and decided to wait for my friend to come back from vacation.

I pay my friend his normal shop rate but I always go to him because I trust that he'll give it to me straight. My friend's diagnosis was that I had a leak on my coolant line and it was shooting on to my hot engine, which caused the smoke. Two years and $8 later, I realized that A1 Auto was trying to swindle a non-auto savvy person out of his money. My alternator charges perfectly, the oil they were referring to that was supposedly "shooting out of my engine" was regular accumulated, built up oil over the years.

Avoid this place like the plague. Always look for the "Better Business Bureau" label when you go to an auto repair shop.
