I had hoped to get my car inspected today, but the garage I took it too, does not do inspections. More on this to follow, but I will try tommorrow. I am now a bit pesimistic about the chances of passing..due to a couple of factors I am so annoyed the car was there all day though when I brought it in the morning. Have you ever had a long, long car repair?

You probably should have asked them if they do inspections. Yes once I had a long car repair and I was not happy with their work.

I knew they did not do inspections! lol.They are the cheapest place to get repairs done around here. I was going to take it to another garage for the actual inspection however, it was in there so long, I did not have an opportunity to go elsewhere.

@snowy22315 If it is taking that long I would not go back there again.

@Marcyaz The price is right! The problem is this guy works by himself.

@snowy22315 yes but they can still do it in a timely manner so you are not stranded

@enlightenedpsych2 well, my friend had his car down here so I got to wait at home. It would have been horrid if I had to wait in their shop. They have no internet!

A few days ago I picked my can up from the garage. It was there for 3 days when I picked it up. I'm not complaining though I think they are always pretty fast getting my vehicles returned to me. This time when they took the injectors out to clean them they accidentally cut an o-ring seal so they had to order a new one and wait for it to arrive before finishing the job. Good luck I really hope you can get your vehicle to pass inspection.

I hope so,,.I think I have spent enough money on this old vehicle, however, I live in the country and I have to have a car.

That is a long time to have a car only to tell you they can't do the work.

well, they did what they were supposed to, they just messed up the order initially, because the person who normally does the ordering was not there.

Yes we have dropped off one of our cars on many occasions and picked them up the next day but we have more than one car so it is not an inconvenience.

Yes, my friend was here...so he was driving me around...I think the inconveience was just not being able to get the inspection done, after I picked it up, as I had planned to..plus they had told me some things earlier to do to get it ready for inspection. now it seemed like he couldnt guarantee it would pass which frustrates me..I will find out Monday..fingers crossed...
