My wife and I found ourselves standing in Auto Aid an AAA approved facility for their used vehicle inspection program, inspecting the underside of a 1996 Toyota Landcruiser with 160,000 miles on the clock, that we where considering purchasing from a close friend that had been her son's mode of transport through college. Dave from Auto Aid walked us through their initial inspection and went into reassuringly detailed explanations, pointing out and explaining in terms that the mechanical challenged could understand, the work that needed to be done, how much it was all going to cost and why. This makes a refreshing change from the patronizing service managers, that myself and my ailing bank account are all to familiar with at dealerships. In a nutshell, I will be bringing my own car to Auto Aid in future.
Andrew, thanks for the kind words. All our hard work pays off when a review like this is written.
