My husband and I were told that our car needed a water pump and was quoted $530.00.Before the quote, we were charged $38.00 just to have the car inspected to see what the issue was.

We called our auto mechanic and had the car towed by Triple AAA. Our auto mechanic called us and told us that we didn't need a new water pump.

What the car needed was a tensioner pulley which is a lot less cheaper and the water pump is still in good condition.We will never take our car back there again.

Had an Experience with Pep Boys?

So why didn't you go to "your" shade tree backyard mechanic in the first place?

Don B probably works for Pep Boys. It's not desparation it's the matter of principle. If you have to come up with the $1.62 to complete the purchase why shouldn't they come up with it to return to you.

:( When I called and spoke to the manager of the store, he told me that he would refund all of the $38.00 back on my husband's credit card.However, that is not true!!!

Only $36.62 was replaced back on the credit card.I have emailed the New Hampshire Attorney Generals Office and the Department within the AG"s Office that handles Customer Protection Division.
