Is Your Mechanic Ripping You Off

CMM Automotive have been around in Perth’s automotive industry for over 20 years. One of the hardest hurdles to overcome in the industry is the level of corruption. In the last 20 years, we have seen hundreds of Australians being ripped off through ridiculous mark-ups, false advertising and blatant lies. We have just recently revamped our website with a new blog that will discuss many of these issues and provide you with some basic information to allow you to make informed decisions and keep your car on the road.

The level of corruption goes from the small white lies to the large customer rip offs. Below is a list of the many popular scams run by mechanics that are costing you money.

          Regularly we have customers coming in asking for quotes for their brakes to be changed as they have been told they need to be replaced ASAP, when in actual fact there is nothing wrong with the breaks at all.

          Spray paint your own vehicle parts and then sell them back to you as brand new

          Extortionate markups on parts

          Joyride customers cars while there in for a service or vehicle inspection

          Ignore faults because the jobs is too difficult or doesn’t pay enough

          Sell you flushes for your vehicle, and then don’t actually put them in

          Offering a full service for less than what the parts cost to do the full service. This means that for starters, you know the right parts aren’t being replaced.

          Reducing the time spent inspecting the car to reduce the time taken by the service. On average, our standard service will take 2-3 hours some competitors have been performing services in 15 minutes!

Hence, it is no surprise that many people are hesitant to trust mechanical servicing and repairs businesses.
