We took my niece's 2000 Nissan Sentra to a Sears Autocenter for the diagnostic on the brakes. I knew its pads were worn low, but wasnt able to hear the telltale squeal (Im old). Sears charged $55 for the diagnostic, and said they could replace the font pads, turn the rotors, and repack the wheel bearings -- for$185. Since the rotors were nice and smooth we didnt need that. And since when can you repack front wheel bearings on any FWD car? I pointed out the idiocy of their quote and asked how much to just replace the pads. The answer was $185. We left; and now my niece knows never to take her car back to Sears. I changed the pads in 30 minutes; the 'better grade' pads cost $37.

I used to use an old airpowered lift like that at the junk yard I worked at. Man that thing went up so fast the car would litterally bounce when it stopped. I can't believe sears is still using those old things.

I used to work for an airline. When I worked there a fellow coworker ran his tow tug into a Boeing 747-400 engine (a PW 4056 for the ones in the know). Replacement engine lists at 6.3 M$. Ouch.

ha my car broke down on christmas road trip to see inlaws...took it to pepboys for new timing belt (thank god it's a noniterference engine) and the assholes took three hours to get a valve cover gasket. then they didn't change the water pump and we can all guess what happened when they fired it up...so there was another couple of hours...f pepboys in lakeland florida. the manager was helpful but the rest of the mechanics weren't very bright. doesn't make sense when the customer is helping the employees. asses
