Ben, the manager, informed me that the car needed a new starter which he would give me a discount of $370 + labor, and a new battery for $140 +$30 disposal fee. He stated that if he put in a new starter that the car would not start unless I got a new battery.
I also told the manager that when I brought the car to them in January 2011 they had installed a new transmission gasket and that it is still leaking. He looked under the car, without a flashlight, which one of his mechanics had to offer to him. He stated, this would cost additional ($260).
Told manager to take my car off the lift that I would take it elsewhere. I then went to Pep Boys and Jiffy Lube for second opinions. Each stated that the car needed a new starter (cost $268 which included tax and labor), that the battery was new (they each tested the battery and gave me a printout). They also stated that the part Tire Choice used to fix the transmission gasket was something he used to cut corners, that they could fix it for less, but that I should bring it back to them since they did not do it properly.
Tire Choice is a ripoff and has poor management. This month another dissatisfied customer was picketing outside their store. I guess the next step will be to get the media involved.
