America's Service Station — Ripping off the public with non-needed repairs
I had just had my Ford Explorer given the 70, 000 service check at my local Ford Dealership and I received an excellent report with no problems found. I stopped by America's Service Station in Norcross, GA to get an oil change the next day.
After a 10 minute wait, the Service Manager came out and said that my Explorer was in "terrible shape"! "The rear main engine seal is leaking, and the wheel bearings on the front are bad, and the brakes are shot, and the tires are terrible and the power steering leaks". He went on to say that he could give me a good deal and fix it all for just $1000.00!
I asked him to wait a minute and got the full written report from the Ford dealer out of my glove compartment and showed him that Ford did a complete inspection and said my Explorer was in GREAT SHAPE with no problems or oil leaks or bad tires or anything the previous day!
By now, the Service Manager had two more cronies up there to support him and to fend off my questions.
After looking at the Ford report, the Service Manager actually said: "Well...what does Ford know, anyway?" He then "fired me" and told me never to come back there again.
I left and told him on the way out that I would never be back and that I would be sure to tell at least 1000 people to be wary of "America's Service Station and their rip off tactics".
