Our car was brought into this shop for an inspection for a possible sale. Not only did the mechanic want to over charge for the work that he said needed to be done, he also quoted work that didn’t even need to be done. Not only did he make almost $200 on the inspection he was also trying to make money on a job that didn’t need to be done. $800 on brakes, you’ve lost your mind. Take your stuff to Cronks in Richland if you want an honest mechanic shop.
We are sorry to hear that the potential buyer chose not to purchase the vehicle you had for sale. The customer paid us to do a thorough inspection of your vehicle, and give him a break down of what estimated costs would be for repairs. Please refer to his Google review below. Thank you! "GOOGLE REVIEW READERS- There is a review on here for one star that is bogus in my opinion as I was the person that asked for and paid for the inspection that they are referencing. I am sorry that it did not turn out the way they wanted , but I can assure you Tri-Cities Automotive had nothing to gain by assessing the car for me and finding things that needed repair. I live in Western Washington and was going to have it trailered here if it checked out and would have had repairs done at a local shop near me so that they became familiar with the vehicle. I am grateful for Tri-Cities Automotive for sending me a comprehensive report that potentially saved me thousands in repairs and lots of headaches. I would use them again if I needed a pre-buy inspection again."
