Estimate for replacing radiator and water pump! Told me the timing chain was contaminated and needed to be replaced as well. Pulled the truck out and went to a reputable shop. I'd avoid these folks at all costs! After questioning them about the timing chain, they backpedaled and said it would probably be OK. Ended up spending $1300.

OUCH... They tried to charge me $525.00 for an OEM radiator. It retails over the counter for $429.00 from local BMW shop. I complained about mark up and they dropped the price $75.00. The bill would have been $940. Fast service, had car ready by end of the day without an appointment. Good lesson learned, I will always ask how much the mark up will be on parts before agreeing on the repair.

Initially they said it would cost $275 but at the end they charged $350 saying that it took time to do pressure test and spent more time than expected.
But less cost compared to other shops in this area.

Called him at 10PM on a Saturday night and he was at my place Sunday at 9AM. Drained the coolant, replaced the radiator with a brand new one, filled with new coolant and water.
Paid cash. No expressed warranty but I've been going to him for a couple of years now and have met his family so I feel like he'll back his work.

Auto Shop: AAA Columbia, SC
My car ran hot as traveling to Columbia, SC on a Sunday. Left the car in Columbia til Tues. Took it to AAA on Forest Dr. They said I had a busted bottom and top hose, and they would have to do a radiator flush and put in a new thermostat. After that they came and told me I also needed a new radiator. The labor came to almost $398, and the parts were a little over $450. I think they price gouged me. I told the guy thats too much and I want to pay $750, but he wasn't hearing me. Why is mine so high compared to the other postings?

The cool thing is before the repair, he pressurised the radiator system with water to demonstrate the leak. 1 year limited warranty for the parts.
