Would have to agree.The only time that I ever called them, he agreed to check on a busted grease fitting on my 4X4.... and then was I got there, HE was long gone. The guy at the desk and the fella he left in the garage, looked at me like I was speaking a foreign language. A tad bit uncomfortable. They did get my money for the oil change and lube (well most of it, but the problem was not solved for what I was ORIGINALLY inquiring about).

Swore I'd never go back. If you say you're gonna check on something , then be there to do it. Or at least inform your lackeys.

Checked it out. Only one suit over auto repair, that was found in Cogans favor, so is there more to the story?

I do not recommend Johnny's Auto Repair. Had me in over $600 parts and labor trying to fix my car. Never did figure it out. I cut my losses with him and took it to the Chevy garage. They diagnosed it just by telling them what it was doing. It needed a 30 dollar part that was simple to change. I asked Johnny if he would install it for free since he had me spend so much money needlessly on other stuff. He refused.

Johnny's...Is that the one by Save-A-Lots, or a different one? Where are they located? Sounds like it may be a good to avoid. For one, it sort of sounds like this guy doesn't have the diagnostic system to locate a problem on recent models.

He used to be there but moved. There is another mechanic at that location. I don't think there is any connection between them.
