Problem fixed!

Called canadian tire asked about the price, Service manager was reviewing the work order and cought the double time charges.

When i said i had a $550 quote 3 miles down the road he matched it!

Got it done for $670 including towing and an oil change!

A few phone calles and saved almost $400

I hate when a shop tries to take advantage of a young person from out of town who doesn't know about cars!

no doubt taking about 50 percent off seems a bit odd to me.

Apperently they have been losing business due to sloppy service writers.

Head service guy found the overlapping labour, dropped extras $50 diagnisis$50 enviroment fee.

Done and on the road again runs great!
