Yes About a year a so ago. Not for repairs but came in looking for SHO parts. [Of course not available] Mechanics came out to look at it. I can't afford dealerships and don't trust them. Never been impressed.
The few times I have overheard conversation between mechanic and parts man scares me. Maurice

Last I heard about 100 dollars just to do that. The way I look at it. That is a 100 dollar test equipment I can buy and use more than once or it is 100 dollars worth of parts I can buy. Maurice

Old thread, yet we all can pretty well be certain those "friendly folks" at the dealer or local chain shops (goodyear, firestone, monro) are trained and encouraged to upsell you. Many times, they may recognize important safety things, so won't discount them completely. Have a good grasp of your vehicle needs before going in. Bottom line, your 19.95 oil change special is a sales opportunity...
