Does anyone know an Auto Repair Shop in Chicago that WON'T rip me off?

I took my car to Car-X for just a simple Oil Change and new Break Pads. They charged me $380!! I don'-t know anything about cars, so i am obviously an easy target. I'-ve been getting ripped off everywhere i go my entire life (i'-m 27 years old, so for 10 years now) and i'-m just sick of it!! Can anyone from the Chicago please help me??

GOOD LUCK...An honest shop in Chicago is like finding an Honest Politician in Chicago...Seriously, If you go to an auto parts house and buy the pads, you can change them yourself or go to Midas...Here are a few locations..Pick one close to you...A chain repair shop means they can be sued easier when they screw something up - Larger liability insurance...510 West Roosevelt RoadChicago, IL 60607312-922-5075158 West Grand AvenueChicago, IL 60610312-670-25051717-23 North ClybournChicago, IL 60614312-642-04554433 South Kedzie AvenueChicago, IL 60632773-523-78782654 West FullertonChicago, IL 60647773-342-84857137 South Western AvenueChicago, IL 60636773-776-87475353 South Archer AvenueChicago, IL 60632773-767-48287251 South Stony IslandChicago, IL 60649773-643-16107419 South Stony IslandChicago, IL 60649773-667-11118104 South Cottage GroveChicago, IL 60619773-846-22004216 West Irving Park RoadChicago, IL 60641773-725-71718245 South Cicero AvenueChicago, IL 60652773-585-650010200 South Western AvenueChicago, IL 60643773-233-09886301 North Lincoln AvenueChicago, IL 60659773-539-8457501 North Western AvenueChicago, IL 60645773-761-5200

they must have replaced more than brake pads. you always ask for a written estimate before any work is done. you then tell them if it will cost more to call you before doing any work and ask to show you what they say needs to be done. The best thing to do is learn a little about your car

When getting your car inspected do they call your auto insurance company?
They don't look nor call, they don't have to. This information has been on line in PA since 1997. If your current insurance bill isn't paid, your file will be flagged and they can revoke your drivers license.

What if auto insurance does not fully cover property damages?
This happens more than people realize.You buy the required amount of minimum liability coverage required by law in the state where you live. In some states, (CA) is a good example, the minimum required is only $5,000..........So, since the coverage is not enough, they will go after you personally...

What is the average car insurance premium in Mississauga, Canada?
No one has ever figured that out because it would be a useless figure to the individual. If I told you it was $200 per month, what exactly would you do with that figure? Insurance is rated individually, not on an average. Kanetix is a terrible website, especially considering your situation...
