Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Impala
Get a seond opinion always,make them show you whats wrong.Demand old parts back.Also negotiate.Price.Examole a Brake rotor that a mechanis will charge you $125.00 for actually cost the mechanic approx. no more than $28. or so.A $600. brake job only costs about 75 max in parts.Also you will pay a price that includes pads and resurfacing of the rotor.Average is about $129.95 depending on car.They will tell you you need new rotors and will charge for remove and install which is included and will will not deduct for not having to resurface the old one which is around 15 each rotor.I even seen some mechanics try an charge for a Caliper service to push the Piston back in.This is included because the new pads cant be installed without putting the piston back in its bore.Last thing.make sure that the guide pins are cleaned and new synthetic greased installed.this will keep the calpers from hanging up.Bottom line is know your car, and what things cost.One last thing There is not an honest mechanic out there,no matter how nice they are.
