My company truck would not start so I had it towed to Tunex in Idaho Falls close to my house. When they got the truck there it started (of course!) but the emergency brake was stuck so they had to pull it in to the shop and work on it.
When I asked how much it would be they said, “no charge—just give us a shot at it next time.”
A few weeks later my wife took our family van in to them to have it gone over completely before we drove it to California. They did a thorough inspection, filled some fluids, and checked the A/C system. Again, they told her “no charge, just remember to bring it in when you need other work done on it.”
I have never had any mechanic or shop ever do their best not to charge us.
