Keyes European, Van Nuys, CA

For those of you who followed my head gasket thread a few months ago, Keyes European is the dealer who gave me a write up saying I needed a head gasket and a valve job. $3,500. for those 2 things.

Actually, they gave me a list of about 10 things my car needed. They had my car for the entire day and said they went over it very carefully. Out those 10 things on the list, I need 3 (water pump, front brakes, coolant)

Thanks to you wonderful people who lead me to Enrique - he diagnosed my 'head gasket' problem as a water pump replacement in about 60 seconds.

Long story short - Keyes European was going to rip me off. I've still got their write up and there is a part of me that is so frustrated by this whole experiece that I want to turn them in to the better business bureau. I don't know for sure yet if I am going to do that. But I am going to write Howard Keyes a letter and tell him exactly what his shop told me and what they wanted to charge me for it. Fortunately for me, I still have all the paperwork they gave me.

Thanks again everyone who helped out on this!
