Simply needed a new engine coolant tub.  Specifically told manager and mechanic I was out of work and to please "only" fix what needed fixing - not preventative suggestions.  They said it was necessary for upper and lower hoses, a new thermostat and tub. Total cost $1200.

Took car to an honest local company, total cost $189. 6 months later the car is still running great.  Also called Jag dealer, they confirmed you would know if you needed new hoses-they would be smoking.

We were treated horribly at this place. Truly insulting!  We were told if we didnt have money possibly should not be taking our car to them. Never said didn't have money, just asked for them to be honest about what needed fixing. 

Shame on them for trying to take advantage of someone who is in hard times!  The local honest car dealer was happy to have our business and money.
