  1. Way too cliche. The old rubbing some dirt on the air filter trick. Nobody actually does that. I bet 80-90 percent of the time people who are wronged by a mechanic, it’s due to incompetence on the mechanic’s part, rather than trying to outright scam them. Maybe add in to that 80-90 percent some miscommunication between the shop and the customer. There’s bad people in any profession, but most people are honest and just trying to make a living. You don’t stay in business by ripping people off

  2. I feel like if two different people brought in two cars of the same make and model with the same identical problems within a few days or weeks of each other, then almost anybody would smell a rat. I woulda wrote up an estimate that was more than the car was worth, and then when they came in to check it out, congratulated them on being our ONE MILLIONTH customer! You owe us nothing for the repairs, and you’ve also won a lifetime supply of don’t ever come back.

  3. Actually if your wiper fuse blows your wiper motor can be going out the reason a fuse blows it can get is it gets hot too much current flows it which would electric motor wearing out would do. This is not a good.

  4. Oh, we're gonna need to put in a new transmission, maybe 2 – it's good to have a spare. Also, do you want premium headlight fluid? It's really best to go premium, standard headlight fluid tends to gunk up, then next thing you know your fuel filter will seize! What? No no, all connected, will you be paying cash or credit?

  5. The guy was "giving them what they want." I had to actually LOL, hilarious. The guy should go into acting himself.

  6. People think they get away with shit, but they don't. You will have to explain all of that on the day you face God. No excuses then. People will say, send me back, I will be good. Ain't no coming back Jack! I would love to have a wife like that mechanic! Smart as hell and we can screw all night LOL

  7. Hospitals, Lawyers, Cops, School system, Insurance companies,Banks,etc….all corrupted.
    The 💯% sure way,is to do it yourself….. especially a simple oil change..
    We have corruption just like a 3rd world country does , it's just covered with more honey ….but shit underneath !!😒

  8. happening not only in the automotive repair indusrty,but in ALL repair industry.Electronics,computers,motorcycles..people should be AWARE of this dumb syndicate.

  9. I don't trust any mechanic other than Audra. At the end of the video Audra say to know your car and that is just what I am trying to do but getting the detailed info on the car is not easy.

  10. If you pull up to a mechanic shop and there is an 80,000 diesel in the owners parking spot more than likely you are going to help pay a payment.

  11. Biggest scam is easy to not notice. Say for instance need water pump replaced so they remove alternator to get to it, then convince you alternator needs replacing too. Lots of shops will then charge you labor to remove the alternator even though they already had it off to access water pump in first place.

  12. need to do the same in uk garages . in Ipswich I already found 3 like this. cheap oil and i pay for the best one. and another in colchester fiat, chrysler. I paid for what they did not change.

  13. If that was my shop. This wouldn't happen. If it did. I would fire the mechanic and the counter guy immediately. Places like this piss me off. Especially dealerships that do this and charge way more.

  14. Midas sucks!! Rip offs that do shitty work..i took my car in to have caliper pins put in since one was siezed..for a alignment, and 4 tires and new caliper bolts oh they somehow screwed up my master cylinder so i had to pay for that.1,107 bucks .never again..i rather pay a regular shop mechanic

  15. before you buy a car , find the right mechanic,. I Drive BMW and i never had any issue with my mechanic easy life

  16. BECK'S in downtown Dallas was paid to replace the engine in my car, and install my new carburetor. They did absolutely NOTHING! When I went to pick up my car, I had to find my own breather cover, put it on, drive the car out of the shop myself, as they were all of a sudden "closed!!!" NOTHING WORSE THAN A THIEF!!! 😡😡

  17. First it was a "mistake". Then it was "I recognized you". That asshole "mechanic" should be fired anyone who had work there should get refunded for "possible" wrong doing.

  22. I went to school to become a mechanic for the simple fact I figured I'd always need a ride. On top of that, I could barely afford parts, let alone paying someone for diagnosis and labor.
