My Car......

I took my car this morning to have the brakes checked. It seems they had been "grabbing". That's the only way I know to describe it. I was prepared to leave it and my son was coming to pick me up. Well, the man took me right in and had my car up on the rack before I could say Jack Rabbit. He came back out in about five minutes and said there was nothing wrong with the brakes. They looked like new. The air suspension switch in my trunk was off. All he had to do was turn it back on. How lucky can that be? I was prepared to pay about two hundred for new brakes. I asked him how much I owed him and he said nothing. Now how honest is that? He could have pretended to fix my brakes and I would have never known the difference. I handed him a twenty for being honest! It's good to know there are some of them left on this earth.

Oh Clara, he was honest. He is somebody you can really recommend to friends and you can trust to take your car back to. I am always thrilled when I hear there are still honest people in this world.

God Bless!

Well yahhooo that you found someone honest to deal with. Around here they'd get the car up on the wrack, have the car taken apart on the floor, then tell you it's a $1200 part that has to be ordered from Japan and will take a week to get there, and then tell you they charge a daily fee to keep your car in the shop.. =-/

Wow! It's hard to find that kind of honesty these days. I would certainly take my car back to him at the first sign of trouble.
