Complaint: I took my 2002 Ford Escape to Spradley Barr Motors in Cheyenne, WY to have a check engine light assessed. The technician told me that I had leaking valve covers causing a misfire in Cylinder 1 of my engine. He asked for $947 to fix the problem. I told him that the quoted price was very high and that I did not want the service done. The technician then charged me $106 for looking at the car. I was not informed when I dropped off the car that there would be a charge to get an estimate. The $947 estimate pricing seemed very suspect to me, so I researched the price of the parts to fix the issue. At ********, the gaskets to seal the leaking valve covers were a total of $66 and new spark plugs were around a total of $25. Thus, the total parts for this repair would be less than $100. This means that Spradley Barr was going to charge me $847 for labor. I believe they were attempting to take advantage of me by not giving me a breakdown of the parts and labor and assuming that I would not look up the actual price of the parts. Additionally, I have since discovered that only the left valve cover in my engine was leaking, which Spradley Barr did not tell me. They seem to have been attempting to trick me into paying for an additional repair to the right valve cover when no repair was required. I was able to refuse the work, but my concern about this company is that this type of practice can take advantage of less knowledgeable people in terms of auto repair, such as single moms, who may not know that the price of the work is too high or that they are recommending repair of working engine parts.
Desired Settlement: I would like a refund of the $106 Spradley Barr charged me to look at my car, as I was not told there would be a charge for an estimate and since I chose not to have the work done. I would also like a refund because they seem to have attempted to vastly overcharge me for labor and convince me to pursue unnecessary repairs. I would also like the management of Spradley Barr to be aware that these types of practices can take advantage of less knowledgeable individuals who need a car for work and/or family and thus are prone to fall for these types of schemes.
Problems with Product/Service

Complaint: I took my Ford truck into Spradley Ford to have some repair work done on November 1, 2103 which totaled $2,948.92. The invoice number is 266826. I had driven the truck about 100 miles and was on a hunting trip with my daughter when the brakes went out. Fortunately, we did not get into an accident. I looked at the brake line and could see it had been broken and glued. When I called Spradley Ford, they spoke with the mechanic who had worked on my truck and confirmed he broke the line by mistake, glued it, and had not told anyone. Their final offer to make the situation right was a free oil change. They didnt even offer a discount on the original work. If a vehicle can come into their shop and go out worse than it came in, and they feel an oil change rectifies that, then they have severe customer service and safety standards. I am requesting that they reimburse me for half of the labor charge on the invoice, which comes to $520. Thank you for your help with this situation. Sincerely, Dan Healey
