This was the first time in my life when I actually had to persuade a mechanic that my brakes need to be replaced.
Here's what happened. I first took my 2004 Corolla to a Toyota dealership repair department for a check up and was told...

Rip off joint. Brought in car with broken wiper arm bushing linkage. Had had the same part replaced before elsewhere for 1 hour labor and $25.00 part. However, the first shop didn't set the arm in the right place when they put the assembly back together, so a month later it got caught on the left windshield frame and popped out of joint. Took it to McCormick because they were open on a Sunday. Told them exactly what happened, but they didn't believe that that was how it broke. Left it with them overnight and said that I had to get up to Lake Geneva WI, but ended up just staying at my girlfriend's apt 3 miles from the shop. Next morning, they told me that the part that the other shop had replaced couldn't be ordered by itself and that they'd have to order a whole assembly for $370 and it would take 3 days. A quick internet search proved that this was a lie, so I told them that since it wasn't raining, I'd just come get the car. Larry told me, "Where are you? It's raining here." I was 3 miles away and it hadn't rained a drop all day. He was trying to get me to leave the car there for repair. I picked it up, ordered the part he said he couldn't get by itself, replaced it, and it works fine. Don't trust them.

Big repairs, oil changes, and evaluating used cars - they do it all. McCormick tells me when I need new tires, and how long I can go before I need new brakes. I brought in a beautiful used Volvo and they found $1800 worth of necessary repairs. Their prices are comparable to other shops, and often a little cheaper. I can schedule a time and get my car back in a day or two. The staff is professional, honest, friendly, and fun to talk to. Stop looking - these guys are great.
