i love my mechanic

October 12th, 2010 at 10:20 am

When I finished work today, I called my mechanic. 'I think I've fixed it' he says to me on the phone. Uh-oh, I think. This does not inspire confidence.

When my friend drops me off, he tells me he has taken the master cylinder apart, cleaned it, and put it back together. The brake doesn't feel like it is having trouble depressing now, and it seems to run fine on the test run.

He tells me to see how it goes, he is not sure if it has fixed the problem, but he priced a new master cylinder for me ($220 plus labour) and decided to see if this would work first.

I was in shock when he tells me the cost for the work he has done: $60.00!

I think that is the smallest amount I have spent on car repairs in a very long time. My friend choked when I told her, and now has his number too! Smile

    Late DH & I had a GREAT, inexpensive mechanic too. His kids even went to school w/our girls./

    Too bad he sold out and moved out of state JUST the month before my hubby passed away. I could tell you a BOATLOAD of stories about mechanics and home repair people trying to ripoff an older (64 now), grey haired women.

    Currently, I am using a local chain and they have been fair. I just miss my old $$ and quick turn around time.

    Yay! I hope what he did fixed it!
