Pepboys Informative - Please avoid - Dont go for any vehicle maintainance

Review by Kalyan on 2010-02-05
PISCATAWAY, NEW JERSEY -- I was facing some problem in starting my car. Since I recently moved to Piscatway and not much aware of the place, I went to Pepboys. The guy said you have to leave the car as all our mechanics are busy.

So I left the car and went to nearby malls. When I returned, Pepboys gave me estimate of whopping $746... saying we need to replace your starter and your brake-pads and brake system are not good. There was never a cranking noise before I come to Pepboys. Also, after replacing starter ($276) just after 10 miles I started getting 'Check engine' light on.

Now Peboys say they don't know anything. Pepboys completely screwed-up my car. Pepboys is not at all reliable.

#1. You say you were having a starter problem, and they told you you needed a new starterm so im confused when you say that there was never a cranking noise? ummm....all cars have cranking noises when you start them. #2. As far as your check engine light, 90% of the time, a check engine light has something to do with emissions. #3. What year, make and model car are we talking about here?
