Bob's is a quality shop with quality mechanics. You have to realize... this is not charity. these guys do this day in and day out, and they are straight pros at this place. what you're paying for someone that will absolutely do the job right. Quality certified mechanic shops charge $100 an hour average for labor. That may be a tough pill to swallow. Do it yourself or have your entry level mechanic friend Do it for you. maybe you guys fix it right, or maybe you spend a bunch of money and your entry level buddy who thinks he knows more than he does screws something up and now you have beef with your friends and/or family. Or you stop being cheap when it comes to the single most useful possession that you have, and go to a place like Bob's that's been around many decades. You don't stay in business that long these days by screwing people over.
