I took my 1987 Nissan Pathfinder to this guy at Mulholland Auto repair to work on my truck because it started running really rough. The guy had my truck all day and called when it was done. I did not drive my truck until the next day, my husband had taken it to the guy and picked it up, so anyways when I did drive my truck to work the next day I noticed that it was still not running normal and told my husband that we needed to take it back to this man and he needed to look at it again.
We dropped off my truck that day and when he called us later that afternoon we went to the shop and he proceeded to tell us that he had put it on some kind of diagnosis machine and that I had a shot piston and that I needed at the minimum $1500.00 worth of work done on it and he would gladly do it for us. Well we of course did not have this much money so we just took the truck home and I drove it for a couple of months, still running roughly when I decided to take it to another shop and get a second opionin.
Well all that was wrong with my truck was a bad spark plug wire, a five dollar part! I paid the guy at Mulholland Auto $130.00 the first day and another $30.00 the second day to be told a lie. To top it off we didn't have the cash the days we took it to the guy so we had to put it on a credit card so now it is costing me double!
