after what i've read over the past week, i wouldn't trust Robinsons with anything car related.

take it somewhere else. there are plenty of other mechanics in mississauga: http://forums.redflagdeals.com/mechanic ... a-1271163/

What if the car leaks?

Do they charge extra for cleanup and miscellaneous costs?

Oh damn. This was so convenient as I obviously can't force a private seller to drive around the city for an inspection.

Can someone please recommend any other options in the area? Talking about the airport area. Preferably a place that is known for doing good used car inspections.
b-line mechanics is in the airport area.

I say take it elsewhere, it's one thing to lock a thread, but to erase it's existence entirely, that just doesn't sit right with me.

I got Ivan from Igarage to inspect a used car before I bought it a couple years back. He's very knowledgeable and has a great rep around here. He's still my goto mechanic when I need anything. Though, he's probably too far for you.

I appreciate the feedback. Can I assume that you have had dealings with them and are happy with their service?
yes, absolutely. some other rfd members have dealt with them as well and were also happy with their service.

The fact that the bill keeps disappearing should tell you all you need to know.

Check the caa website. They have a list if garages that do inspection, no membership needed. Also, there are mobile inspectors that come to you. They advertise on kijiji.

I saw a Robinson thread before and I didn't even read cuz I don't give a crap, now all the locked thrend, deleted posts, banned accounts have draw me into reading this... At the moment there are 30 ppl reading this thread, if nothing has been banned, nothing has been done, probably nobody give a crap! I guess you can't hide nowadays in business if you've done something wrong.
