Hiller-Winn Auto Repair Peoria, Il Complaint - Repairs Not Needed From Second Opinion Mechanic

Review by jzm on 2010-11-27
PEORIA, ILLINOIS -- I wanted people to know about this scam that a lot of car repair places do which is telling customers things needed that are not true. I had oil change and wanted them to look over things while having car oil changed.

They said that there was $2000.00 Of repairs needed and I took it to my regular mechanic and found out most, not all of their "needs repaired" were not really needed.

Please beware of this place

This is very common. Unfortunately the lure of "easy money" causes many car repair businesses (including dealers) to tell customers their cars require unneeded repairs.

A word to the wise would probably be to have your regular mechanic change your oil too. Much less of a chance of getting ripped off!

You have a regular mechanic, stay with them.

Just wondering what type of repairs did they tell you, that you needed?
