Do not use them for State Inspection! I recently took my vehicle in for a State Inspection. I meticulously maintain my vehicle and expected my inspection to go smoothly. After dropping my vehicle off I received a call a few hours later. They explained to me that in order to pass inspection I would need to replace my wipers. That's fair and I knew they were getting close to the end of their life. However, they proceeded to tell me that I also needed to replace my lower rear control arm bushingin order to pass inspection. I know enough about vehicle maintenance to know that my car did not exhibit any characteristics of a worn rear control arm bushing. I decided to have them give me the rejection sticker so that I could take it to another shop to have them look at it. After having the vehicle re-inspected by another shop, they explained to me that my rear bushings were in perfect working order. they did not need to be replaced nor did they warrant a failed state inspection. Basically this shop was trying to hold me hostage by claiming that I needed to repair a part that wasn't broken. Apparently the control arm is a common and quick job. So it was a quick way to get some money into the shop for them. 98% of people would have simply paid them the $300-$400 they wanted for the service, knowing they need to "pass" their state inspection. Well not this guy, you crooks. This is a blatant abuse of their state inspection privileges and I will be reporting them to the BBB and the State Inspection Department. Do not take your vehicle here. Plain and simple.
We are sorry you had a bad experience here at williams auto, we have been under new management for many years now with a completely different team. We would be happy to show you we are not the same shop you reviewed back in 2014.
