The price I was initially quoted was higher than what was stated on your website as a special & I was told that I needed to print out and bring in the website coupon when I brought it up at the time of the appointment. The service rep called me when I got home and said I did not need to print out the coupon after all. Other than that it was a good experience. But it does make me question the additional estimate that I was given for recommended work.

The job was done as promised, Toby gave me the quote initially. It was accurate...the parts were installed in a timely manner. The price for labor was very fair, no gouging here.

Questions Answered by 101 European Automotive
Where Is Sensor Located For Instrument Lighting? on 2004 Lexus ES330
There is a rolling knob next to the mirror adjustment control. Rolling it upward should brighten instrument cluster lights.
We Have A 2002 325i Bmw We Noticed Yellow Engine Light Went On It Was Missing on 2002 BMW 325i
It sounds like the oil separator is defective. I would check the engine codes first.
What Does "Gearbox Failure" Mean? on 2001 Jaguar S-Type
It really depends on what code is setting the transmission into limp mode to know
Ac Just Blows Hot And The Lines Are Not Filling Cold Please Give All Possible A on 2001 Jaguar S-Type
I would start with an evacuation and recharge of the refrigerant. Or hook up pressure gauges and check for pressure hard to know an AC problem without readings. Does the compressor turn on?
My Car Is Making A Rattling Sound Underneath The Middle. What Could This Be? on 2002 Mercedes-Benz CLK430
This is most likely a bad Catalytic converter if the sound changes when revving the car lightly in park.
The Trunk Opens And The Radio Comes On By Itself. on 2001 Jaguar S-Type
This sounds a lot like an Alternator problem. I would have the AC voltage output checked. AC Voltage can cause electrical demons.

stevieray1: The way an Alternator works is it generates AC voltage then the diodes change that to DC voltage. An alternator with diode problems will leak AC voltage into the vehicles electrical system. This is a common misdiagnosis on a lot of electrical problems resulting in 1000's of dollars in repairs to correct Electrical problems. I would still check the AC voltage output and the overall charging health of the alternator. Anything more then 0.05v is too much. I normally see 0.5v or higher when we are running into similar issues in my shop. Also check the DC voltage for sure, that should be 13.5-14.5v anything more then that could also cause a similar problem.
