Should I back out while I can? I'd go with the plan involving your boyfriend. If it seems like a scam, then perhaps contact Scoopon about it and demand a refund.
Or last resort, lodge a complaint with consumer affairs in your state. I guess complaining to the authorities may help. I think thats a lesson learnt, most of these auto service ones I would stay away from as they end up charging you more on the parts like oil etc.
Then they find something wrong with the car which needs to be fixed and make their money back. Do you think I can tell them upfront that I don't want them putting anything that expensive in my car?? Or in fact, touch anything at all that will incur extra cost….

I went to my local CV shaft place. The difference between you and me? You sound like you know something about cars :.
Point taken though. Good thing you didn't get shafted. They'll probably give the safety speech and what not.
The thing is, you're the consumer and you have the right to refuse any repairs. Just tell them you just want the regular service for that the voucher is entitled for and nothing more. If you feel convinced that it's not road worthy, you can always get it inspected elsewhere. I read on some other thread that the service place refused to do the service until the "repairs" were done.
Yes, I have. It's a very long and frustrating stroy which ended up costing me thousands of dollars. I am extremely unhappy with the service I recieved. I have never dealt with anyone so unprofessional and dishonest in my entire life. I purchased one for Midas in Essendon.
He was amazing and took the time to explain everything and show me things and didnt just dismiss me as a woman like most mechanics I have experienced in the past. I was impressed by his professio ionalism and understanding. I was in a bit of a desperate situation working in Melbourne for the day but living in Bendigo. My brake line had broken so had no braking ability and was driving in heavy morning Melbourne traffic.
I was so thankful that my rep epairs could occur at my workplace and completed in my work hours.
I was able to travel back to Bendigo within my normal time frame. The mechanic Jasvir arrived within the hour. He kept me well in informed as to what needed to be done the cost and the stage he was at. He was very professional. I will certainly recommend Lube Mobile to others. Thank you for the prompt and professional servi vice.
