I had a problem with my car that only occurred occasionally. Instead of just "selling" me a cure, Bill told me to come by when the problem was occurring and he could perhaps diagnose it then. The next time it happened, I drove to his shop and he rode with me, diagnosing it as a muffler problem and sending me to a muffler shop. He could have taken advantage of my female ignorance but he didn't.
