When I asked for a discount on the diagnosis cost because the problem couldn't be determined by your technicians, it was denied. This was totally unsatisfactory. For these reasons I wish to be removed from any further emails and will not recommend anyone doing business with your establishment. I am saddened that your establishment has degraded so much since I began doing business with you many years ago.
We at D&R Automotive are sorry for the miscommunication we had with you about a dash light coming on intermittently. Since the light wasn't on at the time you came in, we should have asked you to show us which light was coming on. If done we would have known then it wasn't the MIL (check engine) light, which we tested for, but the low coolant light coming on intermittently. D&R Auto strives for complete customer satisfaction at all times. We sincerely apologize for the miscommunition on our part.
We are responding to your review, because I feel it was not a fair review.
You said our estimate was too high, even tho you said you didn't go get any other estimates from any other shops. We use the Mitchell parts and labor guide program, that a lot of other shops use. If you compare us to others for the same work, you would see that we are more then fair with our pricing.
Charles, you told us the estimate has too high because you were going to repair your vehicle yourself and it has going to be a lot cheaper.
I think it's unfair to review someone low because you're doing it yourself. We have workmans comp, liablity insurance, rent, tech training and about 7 different licenses we have to have to be in business, so doing your own work is going to be less expensive especially if you are not currently employed.
Dave was told by Linda's husband that it was better not to talk to her about the car, because she was mad and can be very short with people. Dave apologized many times to him for the defective water pump and replaced it quickly. Dave even replaced a burned out headlamp on their other car for N/C. Dave handled the problem very professional.
I'm 53 - driven hundreds of cars, half a million miles so I know good mechanics when I see 'em. D&R is the real deal man.
Thank you for your great review of D & R Automotive.
Dave, Rick & Ron
We're sorry you feel unhappy about the service done on your vehicle. We always strive to give everyone the best service possible.
To state the facts correctly, we didn't tune-up or fix a gas leak on the car. The service previously done and paid for by the old owner was a engine oil change, alignment, replace fuel filter, smog inspection, diagnose and repair a smog inspection failure of 3 emission hoses. We also flushed out the complete brake fluid system. We don't know what readings Meineke showed you, but it wasn't from your car. The brake fluid didn't need to be reflushed.
Our technician spend over 2 hours and multiple test drives, trying to get your car to duplicate the intermittent stalling, rough running problem you said happened multiple times. We changed you $48.00 (1/2 hour of labor time) for his time to scan the computer, checking ignition & fuel systems and vacuum leaks, trying to find something that could cause your symptons to accure.
We have FREE brake inspections, so we didn't charge you for the brake inspection and estimated the front brake work to be about $363.00. We told you about your cracked wiper rubbers and 3rd stop light out, which is a safety issue.
