In the state of Virginia you are required by state law to get your vehicle inspected every year. They check things that have to do with safety. Brakes, lights, windsheild wipers, etc. Before we left for tour our van was due for inspection. It passed. But Merchants wanted to charge us 650 bucks for a radiator flush and to replace all the hoses that go to the radiator. Brett took the van to a independent shop for a second opinion and we didn’t need new hoses and he only charged us 125 for the flush. We left for tour. A couple days ago we got a flat. When getting the tires replaced, the mechanic informed me that our rear brakes were fucked. So bad that we would probably need new rotors and in fact, we did. It was 700 bucks. If Merchants had inspected the van right the first time, we would have replaced the brakes BEFORE we tore up the rotors and saved ourselves 600 dollars. Awesome.
