McCabe's Automotive Specialists Complaint - McCabe's Automotive Specialists are actually McCabe's Rip Off Specialists!
UNIVERSITY PLACE, WASHINGTON -- My 2002 GMC Denali broke down. I called AAA and they suggested towing it to McCabes Automotive Specialists (my worst nightmare) They put a new basic battery in and installed a rebuilt AC Delco 130 amp alternator. When I went to pay, I noticed they charged $577.00 just for the alternator, not including installation or anything! When I questioned the service manager, he said, "Hey, we mark up the price on parts, that's how we stay in business!" I was shocked. My family researched and found that you can buy the same exact replacement locally or online for $170-234.98 with a warranty. You can buy a racing, chrome plated 160 amp alternator for under $500! We contacted them to get at least $300 refunded and they offered 10% off the total bill of $839.40. Unacceptable. They should not be in business! I hope others see this and don't fall victim to this fraudulent business.
