On Sept 18 we replaced the transmission. New, from the dealer. On Oct 16 the Suburban was brought in on a wrecker, the shift cable had broken. Customer felt that since it was related to the transmission, he should not have to pay for the repair. We tried to explain that the shift cable was a completely separate part that had nothing to do with the transmission itself. When his vehicle was brought in, we got to it immediately and he was able to get back to work. We're sorry that Theo did not understand the work was not related and that a vehicle, with 300K miles on it, anything can break at any time.
Customer was called with an estimate. At that time he was asked if he wanted to leave the freon in the system, to which he agreed. Thus the $46.01. As to the estimate of $2100.00 vs $700.00: a partial repair always costs less.
I wouldn't go anywhere else.
