Default Car back from the dealer - Problem persists.

The car was in for overheating - thus a new water pump was ordered and will be installed Monday or Tuesday.

That must be a hell of an alignment.

They charge nearly that for an oil change too but in all fairness, they use Truffle infused oil.

Keep in mind, I don't need a single new tire. As I have insurance, when I have a flat or a rip (tear) - I have it replaced immediately. I've gone through perhaps 8 or 9 tires since I took delivery in November 2016. The car has 13,000 miles ( as you see) - There is simply ZERO way I need new tires, let alone on all 4 ends. Simply impossible.

FWIW - I have never tracked it - and I don't drive like a bat out of hell.

You're lucky you don't own a Bugatti Veyron.

Wow! They are charging about 60%ish more than tire rack prices.

My my local dealer will match tirerack prices at a minimum. Labor through the dealer is still somewhat expensive, but thatĺs just obscene what MMC is trying to charge.

buy bridgestone or conti, or anything with a reasonable price, and find a wheel and tire shop that does alignment

Did they at least include nitrogen fill in your quote? Can't read the quote on my small screen.

holy!! 645 bux for an alignment!!!!! is it gold plated LMAO!!!

and $500 bux for a rear tire? I recently got BOTH of them from Tirerack for $420 shipped!!! sure I probably pay $50 to get it mounted and balanced....but that's still HALF of what they want.....

are they running a dealership or robbing a bank?

Alignment quotes ARE crazy. Hold on to your hat if you have options that utilize cameras and additional sensors.
