VIP - Maine Automotive Inspection
SOUTH PORTLAND, MAINE -- I took my Toyota Tacoma to VIP so they could perform the Maine Automotive Inspection. Everything was all right with the exception that the left wheel had, according to them, "play" and the "repair" would cost me over $180.00. I explained to them that my truck had had a service performed in California just a month ago to ensure that everything was in working condition before we drove to Maine. They told me that maybe something happened on the road to Maine. All of this seemed to me very strange and I told them that I would take the truck for a second opinion at the Toyota dealer in Portland. The dealer performed the Maine Automotive Inspection and my truck passed with flying colors. I will not under any circumstances do any type of business with VIP or its employees. Their test is basically a tool for a ripoff.
