I received a mailing from Pep Boys announcing a new service only location just a few blocks from my house. The lure was a $20.00 oil change after the mail in rebate.
The person taking care of me seemed nice and professional. After the service was completed, he
showed me the battery and said that it was leaking and urgently needed replacement. He quoted a price of $80.00 including installation. That struck me as a little high, and decided to do more research the following day.
I removed the battery the next morning, and took it to Autozone. The man there tested the battery and said the only thing wrong with it was that it needed cleaning.
He said he could sell me a battery if I wanted to waste my money. Some water and baking soda later, my battery is fine, Autozone has a new customer, and Pep Boys has lost one.
