A Redditor has posted images of his repair estimate he got from Firestone after taking their car in to fix a flat. The Firestone mechanic said they couldn’t just put a plug in, they needed to replace the whole tire. And while they were at it, they said the Redditor should overhaul their electrical system for $1,600 because the blinkers didn’t work, even though they did work.
“The guy even joked around with me saying, “So Firestone loses another customer, eh?” wrote the Redditor…
…once again proving both the value of an honest mechanic and getting a second opinion.
