Pep Boys Complaint - Overcharging and Padding
SEEKONK, MASSACHUSETTS -- I recently went to my nearest Pepboys in Seekonk, MA because my rear brakes had a grinding sound.
After inspection, the mechanic said the brakes were good and were just dirty and could use a cleaning and adjustment.
Other things that were "discovered and recommended" were:
1. coolant leaks- the upper and lower radiator hoses.
2. a suggested brake fluid exchange.
3.radiator drain and fill
4.radiator hose package
The part of the job that infuriates me is the radiator hose package........I was charged $80.06 labor for removal and installation of the 2 major radiator hoses which probably took 10 minutes (very accessible and easy to get at)and an additional $39.95 to drain and fill the radiator.
When all was said and done, the bill was for $437.38..........I'll never go there again.
