"If You Want It Done Right, Do It Yourself." Ehrm...

I got schooled by my mechanic and trusted friend today. Dropped my Si off because the backing plates were rubbing the front rotors and the car told me that the coolant should be flushed. I picked it up and they charged me $95 to scrape the rust off the rotors and didn’t flush the coolant. They said the interval was 120k for coolant but I didn’t care. I was pissed! Why wouldn’t I just replace the rotors at that point? So I talk to my friend and he explained that they were a $300 pair of Honda rotors that weren’t worth replacing with shitty ones and that the interval is directly from Honda, so they trust it over what the car would say. “We don’t fuck around,” he says... I guess I was wrong to be mad.
