Our goal is to provide the most accurate picture of a business's online reputation. To provide the most accurate picture, we use an automated algorithm to help us recommend reviews that are most valuable for visitors to our site. Reviews that are recommended may ultimately become "not recommended" and vice versa based on continued updates and learning from our algorithm. Reviews that are verified through the business point of sale system may post immediately to the recommended reviews section of our site, however, based on the application of our automated algorithm, may become "not recommended".
I went to Al's auto service asking for a quote to replace a resonator on my exhaust system. They said I needed a complete exhaust system and the price was $450 dollars. I went to Shymske's Auto Center down the street and they installed a resonator on my car for $170 dollars.
I went to Al's auto looking to replace a brake line and they insisted on replacing other lines that were in proper working order. They charged me $400 dollars for something that other repair shops would charge $150 dollars. Lesson learned, get 3 estimates.
Bottom line, Al is a shady character and has no problem selling parts that aren't broken and do a little price gouging when the opportunity presents itself.
