VIP Tires and Service
They told me I needed a new Master cylinder after having my rear brakes replaced. After the rear brakes were put in the brake pedal went almost to the floor. They didn't before. So I went and had a second opinion and he said I shouldn't need a new master cylinder in a 2006 car, and the new mechanic found antifreeze in my brake system. Keep in mind that they are the only ones that have been working on my car for the last 4 years. So the new mechanic flushed the entire system and said I did not need a master cylinder yet and the rear brakes were not calibrated right, that's why they were going to the floor. You people at VIP in Gorham,NH needlessly put my life and the lives of my family members at risk by messing with my braking system to make money. what is wrong with you people? I will never require your services ever again. I will make sure that every one I come in contact with know what you people have done. If I would have got into a car accident because my brakes failed, your actions would be criminal. Be warned! Do not go to VIP Gorham,NH. They employ under educated mechanics and will do anything to get your money. Even put you in danger. I will be contacting there corporate office. I give them a Zero rating... The only reason I gave them 1 star is because it's the lowest rating required.
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
