Tried to take me for a ride!
I brought my husband's Porsche in for a variety of things to be checked. It was going to take 4-6 hours to check everything so I was given a VW loaner….thought it should be a comparable car but that’s neither here nor there. Approximately 4 hours later I received a phone call with a laundry list of things that "needed" to be fixed. First of all the alternator was quoted at $2400 but an aftermarket could be installed for $1300. I asked if I should come get the car while we waited for the aftermarket part and he stated "no, you’d be stranded if it went out."
Other items they said needed attention were:
The sunroof needed "cleaning and relubing" at $215. We needed an alignment although it doesn't pull at all for a cost of $250. The oil pressure gauge was "erratic" so it was suggested we replace the sensor (sender?) for $250. There is a screw in the tire that you can't fix because the tire is not "Porsche approved" which places me on the road in an unsafe car.
I called my husband to discuss and he got a quote from an import service center for $600 for the alternator (including labor).
After dropping off the car we received a phone call from new location. There is NOTHING wrong with our alternator. Do NOT use this company for service….or anything else for that matter!
