Default Time for some new leaf srpings

and the correct brackets but they said no, just going with what they have.






Also had one come in for brakes, just wanted pads only. The rotors were warped and chewed up from metal to metal grinding.

You certainly get some "interesting" customers. in your shop.

I don't understand how people avoid preventative maintenance like the plague and then when confronted with repairs, choose to cheap out on parts, in the very machines they trust their lives and their family's lives in every single day.

You must have the patience of Job.

^^ It's a Mo car with current inspection.

There are places downtown you can get a $20 inspection on anything.

We do.

Had a customer ask me the price to replace a CV boot, just wanted to repair the boot and add new grease since the boot was completely gone. I drove the car a few months ago and let him know it desperately needed two new axles. No, he is just wanting to replace one boot. I let him know he can go somewhere else to have the boot replaced, I am not touching the axles unless I replace them. I'm surprised the axles haven't come apart yet.

What is interesting is that all the KSCR customers seem very consciences and do what is required to keep their vehicles maintained.

I feel bad for some people, they are just barely getting by and have a car that is in need of $2K worth of "needed" repairs. They are stuck, don't have the money for repairs, don't have the money for another car.

People come in here with a car they just bought from a car lot, paid $7K (payments) for a $3K car. The car needs an engine or transmission within a few months.
