Pittsburgh Motor Vehicle Inspection Reviews
#1 they replaced parts without asking me then charging didn't that practice go away like 20 years ago.
#2 They cant seem to communicate very well. (see number 1) I asked to replace one squeky belt and they changed all of them didnt tell me until I saw the bill. (they didn't say why they did just that they did, at least lie to me tell me they are all about to blow up).
#2 They don't ask questions...if you go to a doctor and say your knee hurts he doesnt just replace the whole darn thing. ie Why would you ask for a full truck check up when an 80k is the standard, but we didn't do anything except change the oil...Oh but while we have the engine apart we can change the spark plugs. What kind of sense does that make....
#4 don't check their own work, I had to drive back because of the work they did, left a heat shield dangling and clanging, I noticed it within a minute of driving. They didn't notice it or just lazy?
#5 I cant seem to get my car back within at least three days, they don't call usually until about 3pm to see if its ok to do work or order a part, most places seem to get this accomplished by 10 am when they have the car before 7 am.
#6 they charged me to fill up my windshield washer fluid (wihtout asking) and had the
I sent the car to 's to get work done in order to pass inspection. They were unable to locate a panel from usual factory and junkyard sources for my not very common small SUV.
When I finally got the car back, I found out that the seat belts on the passenger side were not working, likely clogged with sand used during the repair work. It took another day to have those installed, and when I paid the bill, they gave a discount since I was without the car so long."
I have gone there for all of my auto repair needs since that time. This includes routine maintence and inspections.
They are a family owned business who is always involved with helping to improve the community also.
I highly recommend them!!"
On the most recent trip, I got my car inspected. LIfetime said it needed front brakes. I had a family member do those repairs. Lifetime had screwed on the lug nuts so tightly, that removal by hand was impossible. (This is what you'd have to do if you tried to replace a flat tire yourself.) I had to take the car to another shop to get the lug nuts removed for about $70. When the brakes were replaced, and I took the car back to Lifetime, I asked that they not torque the lug nuts above 90 ft lbs. They said, "Sure, ok". I don't think they had to do more than a visual inspection, as they hadn't moved the car, so hopefully the lug nuts weren't disturbed. They get an "A" for friendliness, but I feel that they're more concerned with quantity than quality and that my questions and concerns aren't fully addressed."
