Addendum – An addendum to my previous review: I was subsequently contacted by Stephen, the owner of the 1010 Colfax Grease Monkey. He was personable, civil and reasonable and we were able to come to an agreeable resolution to our dispute. I appreciate the follow up and the genuine intent to make things right on the part of the owner. I feel much better about my experience and this business now.
oil change con-artists – I took my car into this particular Grease Monkey location for a standard oil change. While I was there they showed me my air filter which I had changed ~6 months ago and tried to tell me it was dirty and I needed a new one. I said "no thanks" and figured that was the end of it. After pulling away, I checked my receipt and noticed I had been charged for a new air filter which they hadn't even replaced. I guess this could have been an honest mistake, if not for this...
After completing my oil change, they explained to me that I had a rip in my CV boot and "an ASE certified mechanic could repair this for only $200." Realizing the value of a 2nd opinion, I asked a mechanic friend of mine to take a look at it. By his reaction, I could tell he was blown away. Grease Monkey had actually smeared grease around the boot to make it look like it was leaking. He wiped it off with a paper towel and the boot was perfectly fine, just like the others. These guys are scandalous. I wouldn't trust them to open the hood. Consider yourself warned!
