STAY FAR FAR AWAY.... No Trust in this place. Needed new breaks & rotors. I was changed over $100.00 more then they quoted. I was told the wait time would be about 15 minutes. After an hour I asked how it was going. They told me it was on the lift and shouldn't be much longer. I walked outside and saw my car still parked in it's original spot. They even had to lie about the car being on the lift! It seemed these people just had to lie about everything. I would NEVER consider this place again.
UNITED AUTO CENTER, 2468 E Churchville Rd, Bel Air, MD, 21015 - Do not Trust them.
I went for state inspection. Before they did anything, I asked the guy to look at the van to see if I needed new tires. He looked at all wheels and said you’re Ok until next summer. I came back and he failed the van.
He failed it for the tires, the “Y flex Pipe”, and the “brake wheel Cyl” failed among other things.
I told Al that I will by 4 tires from The TireRack at a cost of ~ $307 (including shipping).
He said, no we can buy them cheaper from TireRack, install them for you and we can save you some money. On the TireRack website, he should be charging about $70 for Mounting, Balance, Valves, and Disposal. So that is about, $70 + Tax then add the tire cost $307 = $382.
I ended up paying $448. That means I bough a tire for $76, including shipping, and it cost me $112 out of his shop.
And he said, “…we can save you some money”. Thanks Al.
Now, the “Y flex Pipe” from the dealer is about $1100. At NAPA it is about $505. Guess how much he told me it will cost me for the part? $880, without installation. I hate to see how he’ll do the fuzzy math here at the end of the day.
I decided to go somewhere else.
