Muffler Man Car Care & Discount Brake Center Misdiagnose and unnecessary repair work Grand Rapids Michigan
*Consumer Comment: your complaint is wrong
My 1993 Ford Tempo shook at the drivers front tire area when I hit speeds around 60-75mph. I brought the vehicle in for an estimate and requested the most inexpensive fix. I was told it needed:
(Tie rod & ends / Ball joints / Control arm / transmission mount / Motor mount / and a few other items in that area)
Total for those items $588.92 In addition I was told I might want to consider replacing the drivers front tire and rim. I chose not to get the tire and rim, knowing that I could find those cheaper somewhere else and do it myself.
After the work was done the car drove EXACTLY as it did before the repairs were done. Not 'a little better'...EXACTLY as it did before I brought it in for repairs. I brought it back the next morning and was told it needs 2 front tires and that will fix the problem. If the 2 front tires will fix the problem now... Then they would have taken care of the problem before the $588.92 repair charges. I certainly would have spent $80 for 2 new tires BEFORE I wasted $588.92 on the misdiagnosed repairs.
