Our son is in winnipeg with a broken timing belt and waterpump on his 2.4 breeze !

Canadian tire wants $1060.00 to do the job! $750 of that being labour!

If anyone can help that would be much appreciated!

Call me collect Graham ...902-765 -3026

Car is needed for getting to work!

Thanks

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!

Thats quite a drop.... I would want something on paper with a breakdown...looks like they were for sure trying to rip him dropping it that much.

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!
