I understand shops don’t make money on NYS inspections. I was charged $8.00 labor for labor on the inspection. As far as I know it’s illegal to do so? Besides I paid up to have wheels rotated,

I purchased a 2016 Nissan Altima late 9/21. The Check Engine light came on late 11/21. I chose to bring it there on 12/15/21, because of the reviews. I like the way that they responded to the reviews( both negative and positive), and it was convenient. My car was acting funny, like it wanted to accelerate on its own. The Check Engine reader code was for Retarded Cam Shaft. I took it and had the compete diagnostics. They told me that the Check Engine light was NOT ON when they looked at it, and there were factory codes on the reader and they deleted them. They provided me with the following suggested services... Approved Jobs (6) Diagnostic Inspection Stage One - Asian/Domestic (Check Engine Light) $189.22 Multi-point Courtesy Inspection $0.00 Plate Frames $0.00 Drive Belt $236.09 Brake Fluid Flush - Asian/Domestic - does not include correction of frozen bleeder screws $155.85 Brake Evaluation - Asian/Domestic $72.98 Declined Jobs (4) Front Brake Pad Service & Shim Replacement $275.53 Rear Brake Pads & Rotors $654.11 Brake Light Switch & Wiring $403.46 Battery $394.03 The Check Engine light had been ON when I dropped it off, and two weeks before CONSISTENTLY, but I figured they were the professionals. Less than one week after the work was completed, the light came back on. I decided to take it to Poughkeepsie Nissan who quickly confirmed the Cam Shaft problem. They said the something was stuck open and three components were replaced, under my warranty. They suggested that I change the CVT fluid and I did ( Ove 70,000 miles). I also had a courtesy inspection and no other issues were found. I replaced a battery terminal myself. The terminal cost $14.00, on Amazon, and I have not needed to replace the battery and I did this in the winter. I have had the brakes and rotors checked at Mavis, and there are no issues. I have had no issues with the Brake Light Switch and Wiring. I am not in the business of bashing anyone's work, we all need to make a dollar. I have waited almost six months to give this review. I needed to see if those issues came up and they have not. You decide. I work very hard for my money and cannot afford to waste a dime. Two star's because the people are really nice.
