A mom and pop service station charged me $83 to drain and flush my radiator. I didn't ask for an estimate because I've been doing business there for about five years and believed them to be reasonable and trustworthy. But this time, I think I got ripped off.
Any opinions would be much appreciated.
Okay, I've asked a question and I'm previewing it. But I don't see any place to click to post it. Oh well, I'll click on something and see what happens.
No, I think that is a fair price - you might have gotten it cheaper somewhere else but not much.....I wouldn't say you were raped.
was there any sexual penetration involved?
They probably have a minimum labor charge. In my area the minimum is between $60-$80. You can always question them about it. Most states require that hourly or minimum charges be posted.
Station attendant Betty drained my ... radiator, but she obviously didn't give me a discount.
If white coloured fluid was involved then you betta call the cops. You've just been "raped" and flushed.
A better question is what did they REALLY do for the $83...
A "flush" can be almost nothing, or well worth the hour they charged.
