Thank you for the positive/negative review... I dont mean to be defensive but you brought your own part(s) and we installed them. We actually did not even charge you labor for the wiper blade that you brought to us. We did not charge you for the work we had to do twice because you brought a wrong part us. Even though we explained before we started that used parts sometimes will not work especially if it came off a different year model.
You came back because you wanted a new passenger side wiper blade but you brought us the driver's side wiper blade. We cant help that you purchased the wrong part.
I will admit that I got kurt with you as I did not see how you could blame us for your mistake... I did give you a new passenger side wiper blade and did not charge you because it was easier to just let you go instead of arguing over $10.
We are sorry that you felt deceived by our shop giving you a thorough repair essement for your car. However, we feel at the same time that you are comparing apples to oranges when another shop/person does a patch job which does not address the root cause of your problem.
Just bypassing a leaking heater core is fine if you do not need heater in the winter. However if you hook those lines back you will still have a leak inside the cabin of your car. The other recommendations of replacing radiator hoses and thermostat are needed even though they are not busted because they show signs of leak and are swollen. This is to prevent a situation where they can blow out while you are driving and cause you to be broken down somewhere.
If you feel that the price of our estimate was the basis of your complaint than I hope you understand the difference between a temporary patch and a permanent repair.
