Rip Off, Hidden Charges, 3/18/2013

At Advance Auto, found out my car needed brake fluid, we filled it, and was referred to 155 Automotive next door to check it out to see what was wrong and the cost to fix. They offered to come drive... it next door (I didn't ask, and said I could), then they put it up on the lift. They told me the right calipher was leaking, and it'd be $245 to replace. I told them I couldn't get it done yet, I would get it back home and have my dad look at it. Then, they gave me a bill for $68 for driving it over and taking off the wheel. Never have I been charged by a service station to tell me what they would charge. Good quality businesses, tell me whats wrong, what the charge will be and I make my decision. I could see maybe $20 tops for their 3 minutes of work, but to charge someone nearly $70 to tell me what I knew.. I just wanted to know what the labor would be to fix. We had words on how he charges, and he told me I could take it out in the paper for all he cared, he doesn't work for free. I will never be back, and will utilize the other fair, honest mechanics in McDonough who tell you BEFORE they do the work, what they will charge.

Never Do Buisness Here, 1/11/2013

Took my car in they broke my Oil Dipstick and didn't tell me. I had to go back. Then took my car for a knock repair. They told me that the bearing had spun on the Crank Shaft and they could do a... repair for $1,200. Which would be to grind down the shaft and put an over sized bearing. My father in law is a mechanic by trade and said if it is measured right that will fix it. They told me there is a small knock still and to run heavy weight oil in it when I picked it up. About a year later the engine locked up on me, and they never offered a price to put a new shaft in. Now I have a dead car.

Never going back

We spent several hundred dollars about 2 years ago to have a timing belt / water pump replaced. Approx. 1 year later, the water pump fails, and we have to spend several hundred $$ to have it replaced by someone else. Had the fluids flushed back in December, now finding out auto trans fuild WAY overfilled causing a leak. It's become obvious they either don't know what they're doing, or just do shoddy work. Use with caution!!!

Depends on the day

We have used 155 Automotive several times. The repair work is great but our last visit the estimate given using the book time was far below the actual bill.

family owned repair business

I've only been using 155 for less than a year now but we've brought all our families vehicals there for repair work. Their prices are fair. The work is good.
