My car was making a rattling sound that was really concerning me so I took it here on my way home to have it diagnosed. They were a little busy but looked at it within half an hour or so for $15 which wasn't too bad. Once they were done "diagnosing" the issue, though they informed me that I needed a new catalytic converter and resonator and that it would be $400 to fix and take half a day.
I thought something was just loose but they told me that was not at all the case and that if I kept driving my car the way it was that eventually the catalytic converter would get clogged with exhaust and cause my car to spontaneously stop. Being the smart shopper that I am, I called around and eventually found a place that would install a converter I bought from an auto parts store for $100 which was all I thought I needed since resonators aren't really necessary.
As it turns out installing a catalytic converter is about a 15 minute welding job and definitely not something that takes half a day. I asked the shop I went to if I could look underneath my car and they showed me that my resonator does in fact have a leak but said that it's not necessary to get it fixed. I asked to keep my old converter when I was paying and all the honeycombs were intact but I was still hopeful that my car was fixed.
Within a minute of driving I was furious since my converter was in fact completely fine and while Bulldog could have gotten a bit of money out of me for fixing whatever was wrong, they instead wanted to hit the jackpot and overcharge me to fix something that wasn't even broken. I was completely swindled by Bulldog and would recommend that you stay as far away from this despicable place as possible since they have no desire to fix your car and instead have every intention of extracting as much money from your pockets as they possibly can. They are the lowest of the low lying scum and give mechanics everywhere a bad name so don't let what happened to me happen to you; go somewhere else.
