Attention

Before any one in the Lakeland , Florida area in

need of auto repair's do your self a favor avoid

TIRES PLUS South Florida Ave.

Their highly skilled Techs had to use the

Engine Diagnostic machine to discover that my car

out of gas after my wife had told them the gauge did

not work properly and for this I was charged $71.00

I wonder what you would be charged for a real problem with your CAR

If your wife told them the gauge did not work, why didn't you just ask them
to change or repair it, diagnostics are not required for that....If you did
not approve the diagnostic test, don't pay for it.

It sounds like they may have taken advantage of the situation but you have
to be crazy to pay for unnecessary work.

How did the vehicle get to their location? Was it towed? If I had one
brought in on a wrecker I would have had to put it on a diagnostic machine
as well if it wouldn't start. It's not their job to fill it up with gas -
that's yours and your wife's. Knowing that the gas gauge was broken and the
two of you failed to have it repaired - could you not have used the trip
odometer to "gauge" your distance between fill ups? The vehicle was brought
to them to find out the problem. They did their job. I think you're
verbally slamming the wrong people here Larry. This being in all fairness.

They couldn't have used the machine until they got the car started (?)
so there's gotta be more to the story.

I could picture a tow truck and a full tank at $71.


PS - Crossposting to 6 newsgroups is really bad form. Especially when
none of them deal with local/consumer issues.

or, you can use your trip odometer,and calculate..

my gas guage "works", but is not accurate.... I know it gets @10 mpg, so if
I put in 10 gallons, I candrive around town for about 100 miles, and NOT run
out of gas....

then I just add another 10gallons, zero out the trip odometer,and go on,
with MY $71.00 on my pocket

I have had experience there too, They even charge a recycling fee for used
parts they get a credit on, Their prices are outrageous. they charged my
wife $400 parts and labor for changing an alternator. Alt was a rebuilt
piece of crap that lasted until she got home.

Over $400 to change an alternator. Half the cost was labor for less than an
hours work. They caught my wife on a Sunday, out of state with a car load of
kids.
