Garage Capors Stories # 6

A son rang up for his 85-year-old mother asking us how much for a condenser on her Toyota Yaris as they were told by the dealer that there were oil patches on it and was leaking, they were quoted £400 by the dealer, I told him it would be £140 fitted using us, but told him to bring to us first to check.

The mother arrived the following day and there were no signs of any leaks or oil patched on the condenser, I took all the gas out and it was only short by 100g which is normal if not been re-gassed for a few years.

Again this is typical for garages to make up stories to try to get work and overcharge when there was nothing wrong at all in the first place!
