    A couple of years ago, the Toronto Star sent a female reporter with a car to several garages to test their honesty.

    A company mechanic had made a simple,easy to see adjustment to a part on the engine that caused the car to run erratically.
    The estimates varied between $200 and $700.

    At the last garage she visited ,the mechanic found the problem in about 5 minutes. No charge!

    BUYER BEWARE!!!

    A few years ago I watched a story on the 5th Estate where they sent a reporter to check on butchers. This was when it was the in thing to buy a side of beef or a whole cow. She reported a lot of dishonesty also. They pieced all the parts together and wondered how the poor cow was able to walk or even survive.
