Can a mechanic shop change prices after giving you a quote in writing? Posted on April 12, 2011I took my car to a shop and was quoted a price of 582.00 to repair it, a day after they begin working on it I got a call from the shop stating that they had given me a quote for a 1996 Monte Carlo when the quote they gave me clearly states 1995 Monte Carlo. They charged me 300.00 more for the repairs. Then to add insult they charged me 200.00 for a radiator they say split after they finished with repairs, plus 172.00 for installing it.
This place gets all their parts from Carquest. The most expensive radiator for my car at Carquest is 137.00. Thank you, John Q.
