On Feb 9 Continental Subaru put a new battery in my wife's Subaru; it took a half an hour. So, I called South Anchorage Chevy, talked to Shane about putting a battery in my Aveo. He said sure, bring it in, you could get to it, probably take a couple of hours. I brought it in. Another advisor told me Shane was out to lunch, I could leave the car overnight, they couldn't get it until tomorrow. I elected to bring it in first thing the next day. I did. Shane was late to work. When he showed up he asked if I had a ride because it was going to take all day. I complained, he said he would try to get it done quicker. I decided to wait-until I saw my car parked outside. So I took the shuttle home. After Shane called to tell me my car was ready the shuttle got me back to pick up my car after lunch. Only at that time did Shane reveal what he was going to charge- $259.95! When I dropped the car off he didn't say peep; the only figure I saw on the work order was $148. With no warning you charge me $100 to test the battery! $10 for "Provisions and Materials". To change a battery?!? I questioned Shane; he said I wouldn't find a better price in town. The previous day I'd paid $131.34 with a lot less inconvenience, no deception and no insults. If this is how you do business...well, you won't get anymore business from me or anybody I know.
