My car thermostat went to hot today so I took my car to Pepboys in Baltimore. They came back with a quote of over $300 to replace 2 hoses on the radiator and do a flush and fill.
I called the mechanic on it and he said only 1 hose had to be replaced and it would be $214.90 for one hose and a flush and fill. He said he could beat any local price, so then he called Mr. Tire.
They charge 99 for a flush and fill plus hoses should have been under $200. So I told him no and I will take my car somewhere else.
I felt because I am a woman, they assume they can rip me off! Never again! I want everyone to know about it!
Monetary Loss: $34.
