Save your money – My car slipped on the snow and bumped into a guard rail. There was very little cosmetic damage (the light wasn't even busted) but the alignment was obviously off. I took my car to Tire World because of distance even though I had taken my car in two previous times and found that they were more expensive than other shops. That should have been a warning but I figured the work was worth the money.
According to the estimate it would take AT LEAST $700 to fix multiple bends and twists, not including the alignment. Even after they finished, the mechanic I talked to said that there was "still more work to be done and $700 was probably only the beginning." They recommended that I sell my 1988 Honda rather than investing that kind of money. I ended up selling my car to a talented man who can fix cars and after reading the report and comparing what he found after he bought my car- he informed me that the estimate had been FALSE. The bends in the frame did not exist, neither did the rods need replacing or fixing. After doing a simple alignment in his very own drive way (which would have cost me $45)- my car runs as good as new.
I take responsibility for not getting a second opinion and trusting a company that was usually over priced to begin with. However- I did not think that the difference would be $655 dollars over priced! I now have a new car that I didn't need to buy and I could have kept my Honda and saved my money. I'm writing a letter of complaint both to Tire World and the Better Business Bureau. The only bright side is that I found an honest amateur mechanic.
Beware and don't bother!
