Perhaps it was this last time when I went there for an oil change and a signal light bulb replacement (I brought the light bulb with me) and the guy told me he was charging me about 60 dollars to "clean the lightbulb contacts". Or maybe it was when I had a problem with the starter but the guy replaced my battery and didn't even hear when I explained the intermittent nature of the problem (took 2 more visits, several work days lost and hundreds of dollars more for him to figure it out and I had to mention the starter myself). Or maybe it was when another guy told me it would cost 600 dollars to replace the wiper arm assembly and that he was going to have to buy the part from the dealer (when I actually bought the part from Amazon for about 50 bucks later). Here's the bottom line: Dave Anker is one of the best mechanics around. The people working on his shop are NOT. I will never go back there. I would not recommend his shop to anyone I know at this point. Except if I knew Dave himself is working on it.
