I was excited to find Pat's Garage because neighbors recommended it and it has such great reviews online. The people were super nice and it's clearly a very professional operation. However, after bringing it in with a brake problem, they "diagnosed" problems with both front and rear brakes as well as other items and estimated more than $3,000 to fix all of it, including about $1300 for each set of brakes (front and rear). Feeling like that was exorbitant, I took it to a second mechanic, who observed that my front brakes didn't need replacing, that a bunch of the other stuff Pat's diagnosed wasn't actually worth fixing (i.e. close to $200 for the pole to hold up my hood when I check my oil), and did all the work for under $600. The other place also did some things for free that Pat's itemized on the estimate. They also found that, when Pat's changed my oil, they added 1.5 quarts *too much* and it needed to be removed (which they did for free). All of this is to say: I had high hopes for Pat's, but I was very disappointed, and glad I trusted my instinct that maybe my car didn't need $3,000 worth of repairs.
