Where are some good places in Charleston to get your annual car inspection? My car is ok, but just seen better days. I just want to find a place where they aren't so picky that they're just looking for things wrong. Does Advance Auto parts do this?

Take it to Hooters in Kanawha City. You can get a state inspection, tires rotated, inside and outside detailed with girl in bikini, grab a burger get your PRESCRIPTIONS filled and get laid all in less that one hour.

NOTE: Prescriptions are for pain pills only!

Sears failed a car for a leaking rear main seal. The inspections have gotten way more intensive than just checking to make sure the brakes work. You won't pass if one of the new electronic tire pressure sensor's is malfunctioning (very common). And $12 for a rejected sticker good for 10 days is some BS.

I agree completely, the whole thing is a complete racket. Just another example of too much government and not enough common sense.

You actually pay $11 then when u come back with what needed fix they give you the sticker for $1..... The only reason people inspect them is to make sure it is safe for you to drive. Have your vehicle fixed and there wouldn't be a problem.

All the larger auto service chains like Midas, Sears, etc., just use State inspection as a racket to make money on unnecessary repairs. You always end up needing something they sell and install before they'll let you pass. Usually to the tune of hundreds of dollars.

Do you know how easy it is to get a court order to find out who you are and then WE the larger chain of MIDAS will sue you for slander? STATE INSPECTIONS ARE SAFTEY INSPECTIONS AND ONLY IDIOTS DOESNT WANT THIER CARS TO BE SAFE

I agree, I don't recommend taking your vehicle in for an inspection at any place that has a sales desk up front, usually with at least one female working. I took my truck to Appalachian Tire in St. Albans once and they tried to bilk me for over $600. I ended up getting what actually needed fixed at a small garage for around $100 or so. To reiterate, be very leery of auto repair shops with sales desks up front.

It's actually quite hard to get that, and no court would issue one over anything said in this discussion.

Hmmm. I doubt it would be all that easy for you Mr. WE larger MIDAS CAPS LOCK BAD SPELLING GRAMMAR man.

But you can definitely go ahead and try. If I end up in court, I can recount my specific experience with Midas near Patrick Street where they insisted I needed about $700 worth of parts and labor to pass WV State inspection. I immediately took the vehicle to another reputable local garage for a second opinion and received a thorough inspection and a sticker, even after disclosing the alleged problem as reported by Midas.

Key in proving slander as a civil violation and recovering real damages is in establishing that the statement directly caused real enumerable damages and also in proving that the statement is false. Since my statement is entirely true, your courtroom victory seems doubtful at best.

Slander, as follows:

slanĚder
&#712;sland&#601;r/Sub mit
nounLAW
1.
the action or crime of making a false spoken statement damaging to a person's reputation.
"he is suing the TV network for slander"
verb
1.
make false and damaging statements about (someone).
"they were accused of slandering the head of state"
synonyms: defame (someone's character), blacken someone's name, tell lies about, speak ill/evil of, sully someone's reputation, libel, smear, cast aspersions on, spread scandal about, besmirch, tarnish, taint;

State inspections are indeed ridiculous. Some states don't require them at all. They not only make make it difficult for a poor person that may not be able to afford a repair that really may be harmless, but they also cost businesses a lot of money. They require labor and space to perform the inspection which may be very limited to a shop. Meanwhile they could actually be doing something profitable. Just another headache some liberal thought of to make money on.

Oh sorry, but your liberal idea is askew, the main legislation and passing of federal laws where under the Eisenhower administration in the 50's and the specifics left up to the states. Though some types of inspections go back to the late twenties, of course that was a republican presidency too.
