I bought this car in 2/07 from Enterprise car sales. The following is a partial list of repairs that the chevy dealer claims that I need rack/pinion $617 alignment $90 fuel injection service $152 induction service $152 rear emergency brake adjustment $75 How can I tell if I really need these items or if they are ripping me off? Is there a way to check the dealerships service record and reputation?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Mingyon, You can log onto and check the dealerships reputation with your community. a fuel injection and induction service is the same procedure. An alignment is required after a rack and pinion is replaced, you can always go to another reputable shop for a second opinion. AJ Pierce

Suzanne Grego, Technician at City of Philadelphia Fleet Management Mingyon, It's always a good idea to have the technician working on your vehicle bring you into the shop and show you why they are suggesting repairs. Even if you don't know anything about cars, some of it is common sense. Also, check your manual for the maintenance service schedule. This will put you on track for fuel injection service - among other services. If you really don't trust this shop, Ask Patty has a list of female friendly and trustworthy shops. Also, ask neighbors, friends, and coworkers what shop they trust. Suzanne
