My A/C wasn't working, happened all of the sudden, took it in to Tires Plus and they told me it was the compressor and would be $1350 to replace and charge. I took it to another shop, not a chain, they said it was a faulty valve, replaced the $5 part, and charged it, total, $200.
I asked why they would have told me the compressor was bad, they said that Tires Plus employees get commission on their sales.
This is not the first time this has happened, but after the change in management I decided to give them a shot again, dumb move. I'll go back for tire rotations since they are free, but that is it.
Monetary Loss: $1300.
