RIP - OFF!!!!

$90 per hour for labor is unconscienable. I pay $45, and think anything
over $60 is outrageous. As for the 60K service, there really isn't
much that *needs* to be done. New belts and hoses (don't need a timing
belt), new spark plugs, brake fluid flush and 60 minutes or less of
looking things over.
