Dan's Radiator has flushed and refilled the cooling systems of my car and my wife's. Both times Dan's completed the work between 8am, when I dropped off the cars, and 11am. Each job cost me just over $20. Try to beat that!

Shameful business, NOT TO BE TRUSTED. He charges one person $20 for a coolant recharge and another $250!!!! I went in for a freon re-charge, as my local mechanic was gone for 2 weeks and it is getting hot. Dan/Tony fit me right in, hooked me up to the recharging machine, and worked on another car for 15 minutes - at which point my car was done. I kept asking him 'HOW MUCH' and he said he was ' thinking about that'. He then proceeded to ask me for $250 - when I GASPED knowing Ive paid $40-$60 before, he lowered the price to $200. I still gasped, and he then asked me 'what do you have in your wallet'. I should have known I was swindled then. I gave him $140 cash, and called my mechanic who told me his charge was $40. DAN/TONY - YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES. BE WARNED! As a small biz owner in Newport, I love supporting local businesses, but this is one to skip.
