I have been getting my oil changed for years at the VIP center in Topsham, ME. Recently, I went in to get my inspection sticker.
They failed me and stated that I needed to get two front tires, brake pads and new rotors, for a whopping cost of $510. My boyfriend suggested I go to a mechanic that he trusted, Tires 2 You. I am glad I listened - he gave me two new front tires for about $100 less than VIP offered, and told me that all I needed were new pads, and the rotors were absolutely fine. Not only that, he came to the house to do it.
The price came to a fair $250 - that's $260 less than VIP estimated.
I think it's disgusting that a place I have done business with for years would be so dishonest and rip me off to this degree, especially probably because I'm female.
Run do not walk away from Topsham VIP. I will never go there again, not even for an oil change.
