Shady. Mechanics are so shady.

I'm doing price-comparisons to get my timing belt replaced. I got a quote from the dealership for $400 (and I have a coupon for $100 off).

I just called Midas and they quoted $600. I said, "Oh, okay." The guy said, "Have you received any other quotes?" I replied, "Yeah, $300."

He put me on hold, came back with a quote for $330, with a coupon for 20%. Oh really, jackass? You couldn't give me that quote in the first place?
