mark what does funneris mean and can you really say the place is not shitty looking and dirty? monroe muffler some people dont trust them. lots of people are scared shitless of garages and the crap that can happen.too many crooks and not enough honest car shops it is hard to keep a car on the road let alone getting overcharged or completely ripped off ever notice how busy north country oil change is- must be a reason.and no i am not related or a friend but any moron can see they do good business and could stand to expand.noone wants to be charged too much for anything including car repairs .this is a public forum and you are entitled to your say and you said it. not everyone believes it but you should stand behind your word if you are telling the truth

Oh, Skip's Auto. This place is basically the antithesis of what a garage should be, yet sadly is the image of how most garages are: slow, gluttonous, untrustworthy and over-priced. It's really hard to find a good, honest garage/mechanic these days especially if you are a single-mother, woman, or unknowing college student. I swear garages see these people (us) pull up and their eyes light up because they know they can make BANK off of us! I remember I had a "check engine" light on once, took it to Monro Mufflers and they replaced something, said it was "fine" and a few days later, the head-gasket... I think... blew and the car started burning anti-freeze, you could smell it as it burned through the exhaust-- the gas coming out of the tail pipe was blue-- and the engine basically died. I took it to Skip's auto who said, "Yeah, this will cost $1300 to replace," so instead I just bought a new (used) car from them, which was in pretty decent shape, except for the fact that all of the lights were on. However, he said it was good enough to pass inspection so it did. A year later, I had to play the light-game, because the check engine light flashed on and off, and I needed it to get fixed so it could pass inspection. That car turned out to be a pain! But back to my original question: why is it SO HARD to find a good, honest mechanic who won't take innocent people for a ride? Seriously! It's very disheartening when a car's light goes off/ makes weird sounds or smells, because you know, "Oh boy, I'm in for $1000+ repair!" :(

nobody wants more government regulation, but it's needed to stop these crooks. Contact the Attorney General in Albany if you feel you have been ripped off.

As for Skips Auto, have nothing good to say about that place... I will just leave it at that..
As far as NCOC, we will just agree to disagree.

Potsdam tire inspected my truck, I drove less than a half mile and the front tire lug nuts backed off and ruined my rim and almost lost control. Small mistake, serious result. And when I called they said " prove it was us". Well the recipt said" removed front left tire/brake insp" , and a disclaimer to "re tighten lug nuts". So I got stuck with the tow bill and buying a new wheel. I am surprised the hole is still around. Good to hear they haven't killed anyone yet!

Yea don't go there. They tried to make up things that were wrong with my car. So I told them to fix it. They wanted me to drop it off. I wanted to wait and watch they sure didn't like that and got all pissed and told me to leave. I took my car to the Toyota dealer because I figured they would know best. They said that my tie rods and wheel bearings were perfect. Skips tried ripping me off that's why they wanted me to drop it off so they could get 500 bucks for doing nothing and just tell me they fixed it.

Mark is an idiot! He walks around like a bad ass when he's a little puke. Maybe if you were a good mechanic you wouldn't be changing tires for 20+ years. I worked at a garage for 10 years then started my own body shop. Plus I think marks woman has more balls than him! Old market road Potsdam
