Thank you to Eddie for helping me out in person/on phone. He was fun and friendly. I didn't meet the mechanics but they did a great job on the car.

The shop was not up-to-date on recalls. It was cheaper to get the work done by the dealer. The shop was hired to fix a fuel leak and just patch it. But the manufacturer had a recall on the fuel tank to replace it. The shop charged 2 hr and took 4 days to look at an engine light but the dealer only charged 1 hr and took one day.
