Here's the fraud. I asked them to look at the front brakes because a light was coming on. They said that I needed to change the front brake pads because the pads would begin eating into the rotors soon. The manager told me it would be $220, but he would knock it down to $189 if I did it that day.
I was suspicious in the wake of the magically growing oil change so I told him I would come in next week, he gave me an estimate for the work (that I still have) and then I left.
I called my regular mechanic, they said for replacing front brake pads they would charge $125. However, after I dropped it off, they called me and said that all the brake pads were like new and there wasn't any point in changing them. I gladly paid them $16 for their honesty (I would have paid more but that's all they wanted).
In conclusion, Johhny B's Pro Lube tried to rip me off. I would urge anyone in the area to avoid them.
