GET THIS.

So the Saab dealer, ZIMBRICK fixed a $400 belt and then said, "whoa, bad news, you blew your head gasket. It's going to cost you $1600 and we won't get to it until the end of the month." So Jason called Import Auto Clinic and they could get it in this week, and they were also willing to give us a deal on it since we had the head gasket done about a year and a half ago. Jason called Zimbrick and told them we were going to have it towed and they were all, "Well WE guarantee it for a year..." but we had it towed anyway. TODAY Import Auto Clinic calls... GUESS WHAT! They tried and tried, and CAN'T FIND ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE HEAD GASKET. They said something about burping the radiator. The car is fine. Getting an oil change, ready to come home. SO... I wouldn't mind a good explanation from Zimbrick as to why they were about to screw us so hard. I'm SURE they have a very good explanation...

that is seriously f-ing lame of Zimrick or whomever. What jerks! You should call them out on it. I am angry for you. :)

It could have just been a very expensive mistake by them. This anecdote stresses the value of a second opinion.

saab, you say? my sister and her husband are quite keen on saabs. one of them saved their lives when it rolled over on an icy road one night a few years back. they were fine, no injuries and Andy (Sara's husband) had got another one within the week!
