Cedar Rapids shot experience

J & J's in cedar Rapids.
My experience. Stopped in and asked how much to flush the radiator. He said about $100.00. Told him my car was running a little hot, he said he would take a look and it and would be done on Monday or Tuesday. I called Tuesday and nothing was done yet as he said he was swamped.

Picked up the car on Friday and the bill was $320.00.
Replaced the thermostat without asking me with a 90 degree which I did not want. ( I can replace that anytime)

Filled the Radiator with the Green Stuff andti freeze. Said he was out of the blue and this was good becausae it was premixed and did not have the minerals in it form the local water, and could not get a good answer on what exactly the make and kind of Antifreeze it was.

$320 to flush radiator, add incorrect antifreeze probably and add a thermostat without asking.
My experience and Opinion only.
