Haha, they just claim the cat is 200 dollars, it probably isn't.

I wouldn't know, I'm not a lucky person.
Hence why I'd rather be out in 5 degree weather, with a foot of snow on the ground changing my oil than pay someone else to do it. I don't trust any place around here anymore.
Unless its tires, an alignment, or state inspection, I do it myself, or pay a friend of mine to help get whatever it is done. He used to do a lot of work on the side (dealer mechanic by day) but being a new father now, his out of work time is fairly well spoken for. He wanted to open a shop of his own, and even had people lined up to work for him, but couldn't get a small business loan to do it.
He'* actually gotten kicked out of shops by trying to do the right thing. They would want him to go through a bunch of unneeded stuff to inflate the repair bill. Or do an extensive diagnostic on something he already figured out. He'* been kicked out of a few dealers for working around the policy to inflate the bill whenever possible. Seems like common practice now. You can't find any place that'* honest.
I used to have a family run shop I'd go to. But they were bought out. New owner + one bad experience with tires and them lying about the job they did, and not doing what I asked them to do= an expensive $460 reminder that honest auto shops are dead.
Tell me about this... After the episode with the ******* mechanic I took my car to, I am never taking my car to a shop again unless its for a rotation or new tires. My dad has a friend like this. He'* spotty, but damn good with cars, and is more than willing to fix things as long as I'm willing to watch and help. He has enough knowledge to work in a shop, but hes honest and fair, unlike the ******* who changed my ignition control module for no reason and caused 3 more codes to come up. Working on a car at 25 degrees on New York Street is a bit unreasonable, but I'm waiting for the good days to get all the issues with my car sorted out instead of taking it to another thief.
