Took my vehicle to the dealership for an oil change and they recommended repairs (replace brakes/rotor/bearing, differential fluid, brake fluid, replace bad axle seal). A friend recommended Sloan's to possibly save some from the high dealer maintenance fees. The work was basic so I figured I'd save the money. Sloan's had my vehicle for 4-5 hours then texted a very good and detailed report but with a quote over $100 above the same scope from the dealership. I told the shop that the dealership offered a lower price and I'd be going back to the dealer. I was charged $50 for this estimate. The employees were very nice and knowledgeable but I was surprised the estimate was so high and they didn't care to negotiate. I went back to the dealer and was mailed a 20% off repair coupon in the meantime. I ended up saving several hundred bucks. The guy at Sloan's said he didn't know why the dealer wanted the brake fluid replaced which was helpful and saved me even more money. Thanks for that part, Sloan's. Sloan's must do good work as they are very highly rated but be careful assuming they are less expensive than dealerships...and they would have needed to keep my vehicle for a day and a half when the dealer had room to turn it around in about 5 hours plus have OEM parts that I trust. I would consider Sloan's again and hope this was a one off experience.
