Went in to get an estimate on a head gasket job for my Nissan. Was quoted $500 (without machined heads) over the Repair Pal estimate and it seemed they did not want to do the job. They called back with the estimate including having the heads inspected and the price was ridiculous. We discussed some cheaper alternatives including an engine swap and I was told I would receive a call back with some more estimates. I have never received a call.
RepairPal please make sure that the shops you recommend are:
#1. Willing to do the jobs you have listed.
#2. Are actually close to your repair estimate and not $500 ++ over.
Edit in response to below:
How can you, "text me" when you only had my home phone number? If you did call the number you have, there definitely wasn't a message on my answering machine from you.
P.S. If the original quote was $3,000 you would have had my business already........
