          I took my Toyota 4Runner to a dealer to find out why some warning lights were illuminated on my dash. Someone had cut the sensor cable to my ABS break on the front wheels. It was going to cost me over $1000 to make repairs. They gave me a service and repair list showing costs. Over $3000. I'm ordering the parts and me and my nephew are making repairs. Dealership maintenance departments are so corrupt. I have bad past experience with another dealership maint. Dept. that tampered with my Honda Accord.

                          Scotty. Greetings. I have a nissan rogue 2012 with cvt transmission. Some mechanics tell me to only change the transmission oil. Others say that I must also change the filter. What is your position? Thanks for your attention.

                            National chains are in business only until they are shut down. They are thieves. I will never, ever go to one unless there is absolutely no option - and there will always be an option. They are on the same level of integrity as dealership salesmen, finance managers, and service departments.

                                              I've worked for NTB 2.5years as a CSA(guy at counter) and we got paid commission for everything u buy especially ntb brand tires. ONLY THING STORE MANAGERS, DISTRICT MANAGERS, REGIONAL MANAGERS AND CORPORATE CARES ABOUT IS OUR MONTHLY SELLS!!! And daily i would be reminded that i need to sell more ntb credit cards. I had to leave that place. Customer comes in for $20 oil change, and we check almost everything and would almost always 99/100 find a long list of stuff and if the customer was an easy prey I get a good bonus.

                                                We love you scotty. Wish we had good mechanics like you. I bought a used 2007 Camry fulled loaded from an elderly lady. Someone dinged it minor repair needed. They body shop ripped her off so bad and wanted to do mechanical work saying the motor mounts were bad. The car only had 70k miles. So it idles a little rough not bad. I believe it just needs the throttle cleaned. Its always been stored in heated garage for a Wisconsin car. No rust. I have the changed the original spark plugs and air filter and drives great. I wish mechanics were more lile you and just fix things the right way and not get involved in nonsense fixes.

                                                      I enjoy going around to different shops in my town to see who is reputable, and who isn't, I just got done doing a full brake job on my 97 dodge dakota, took it to a few shops, and only one said there was nothing wrong with the truck, in fact one shop told me I needed a full brake job, I said no it doesn't, I just did a full brake job on it, and the shop owner said back well we really never looked at it, take your truck and get out, I let all my friends know about the shop, and it closed down a year later.

They quoted me a price way above what I'd expected. When I balked, they offered to just put new rotors on WITH NO NEW PADS! When I pointed out that the new rotors would be destroyed the second I hit the brakes if they did that, the woman at the desk (who was ringleading this scam attempt) just stammered and admitted I was right! Then when I said "hell no," they backed the car out into their little area as if they thought I'd come back later. I went right back there, jumped in, and drove away. When I did that, SURPRISE, the pedal went right to the floor!!! I remembered my grandpa's words, "pump, pump, pump" and did that just in time to get braking action back before bashing into the cement pillars holding their roof overhang. Soon after, I went to a real mechanic, which wasn't cheap but at least got the ENTIRE job done and didn't try to make me crack it up on the way out.

I’ve already waived off anything CVT transmission, imports I’m not familiar with...*cough* Suzuki. I’ve settled on an 09 Escape and 12 Focus, with a 😑 14 Dodge Avenger. What’s your input? EDIT: I’m an old school mechanic myself. Just been out of the aircrafts and automotive trade long enough to not be viable. I listen to an engine and feel how it works and go from there, not plug a diagnostic tool in an guess from there.
