Barile does not over charge. They go by certain rates that you would have to pay at any other Corporate dealer...
On my most recent oil change, the technician pointed out a coolant leak under my car. "Your lower radiator hose is torn". Also, my thermostat needed replaced, and the tech recommended the water pump be replaced before winter of 2012.

The total cost for the unexpected repairs was going to run me $330. My radiator hose is $26, thermostat is $35, and water pump is $170. I checked online at Mazda's pricing for these, and Ford confirmed the prices.

I have yet to have a problem with Ford, and I praise them for their work, and honesty. They know how to get things done right, efficiently, and at a good price.

If there's something that you need replaced, then see if it's something you or some friends can do first. Don't complain about the pricing when you don't know what to expect, or haven't looked into the project yourself.

I took my car in to address a Ford recall and to check a heating problem. The recall may have been done correctly, but the work performed on the heater at $250+ was useless--we sat in their lot when picking it up and ran it and there was no heat at all. Is this supposed to be fixed? They offered to check it out, and of course recommended a new repair--$400 more dollars. When we came to pick it up after this repair, the lights on the heater panel on the dash weren't working (and of course they were working before these guys got their hands on it) and the car, which ran like a top before Barile got their hands on it, was now bucking and sputtering on idle and showing a check engine light. Recommendation to fix the rough idle? $900 in repairs. You do the math. This is too many "coincidences." They either "cause" the problems or are too incompetent to get the job done correctly. Avoid this place - there are good places to go in Valparaiso.

Overpriced. Horrible. They also try to get you to do work that isn't needed. Wanted me to pay $270 for brakes (rear only). Got them done down the street for $100!! Big Difference!!!

I think they're making up for the free warranty repairs they have to do by upcharging for paying customers!

Go elsewhere!
