When the light comes on, just come in. Pep Boys does everything for less.

So far today:

Subaru wrx 2011 with nitrous
Mazda RX8 with nitrous

These guys are buddies and both around 50

The exhaust job on both are hideous, and the drone in the RX8 at any speed is ridiculous.

Anybody else a mechanic on here?
Any chance you work for diablo Mazda Subaru?

I'm a forklift tech.
The amount of tards I have to deal with daily is insane.

They call me to the warehouse to fix a hydraulic leak and turns out the owner doesn't want to pay us because he thinks us replacing a wheel caused the leak...

And why are Armenians always dicks?

Last person to work on it owns it we say. That's why we do checks on every vehicle we look at, because it covers us from that type of crap.

That's the second best place to have a mattress!

I'm guessing the minivan didn't tie it down to the roof good enough.

I got a new one for you guys, and its a subaru to boot.

What happens when you let your slipping clutch go for a couple months because you want to "get every last penny out of it" This is an 05 Legacy GT

Sub'd. This thread made my day. I think it should be required to take an IQ test to get your license, let alone buy a car.

They do, it's so hard to fail lol
I'll keep updating this as I get them. I get at least one stupid thing a week.

Walmart called today they needed to put a new oil pan on a BMW because their "tech" stripped the drain plug on an aluminum pan this is a customer of ours that goes to them just for oil changes because it saves her 15 bucks, needless to say we have to order the part, then do the repair. She is out of a car for a week. I hope she learned a lesson. It is gonna cost upwards of 2 grand to fix it haha. Sucks to be Wallmart, we have fixed a couple of their screwups lately.

Here's my gem of the day...

Customer had their Touareg towed in today for a "flat repair"...





This one here is a few months old.

Customer came in with an 04? Explorer Sport-trac. Complaint of a sqeaking belt.

Okay, how do you not know your rim is shattered? He must have curbed the **** out of that to totally destroy a rim.

something like that is usually followed by, "I swear I didn't hit anything."

My trucks catch them at the landfill all the time. Locks the shaft up and rips all the wires and air lines. I have seen it lock it up so hard and the truck was deep in trash that when hooked to the dozer, it has pulled the front frame out. It's a bitch to get out, too. Cut off tool. Remainder of mattress material keeps catching on fire.

This kinda makes me wish I had become a mechanic. Idiots like this would have kept me in the good life for a long time.
