Backyard mechanics, don't stand up to their mistakes. Very shady business. Wouldn't even recommend your wheel barrow to this place.

A note on repair costs.
I took all of my auto repair business on my used, 10 year old car to Richie’s from October 2013 until I became aware in October 2016.
By aware I mean to their business model. Let me explain. I went through all my old repair receipts. (Richie’s doesn’t enter odometer readings on the receipts so I made a habit of doing it myself). During this 3 years period, Richie’s replaced my front pads and rotors, and then replaced them again after 13 months (25,922km). The industry suggests they should last 48-112,000km. They lasted about half of the minimum.
Richie’s replaced my rear drums and then again after 26 months (56,422km). Again about half what the industry expects. Front wheel bearings lasted 14months (34,590km) and 7months (13,739km)! Industry expectation 136-160,000km. I got a tenth? Hmm something’s wrong here. Rear struts 11 months (25,396km). Industry says 4-5 years.
There is more but you get the point.
Richie’s has a low shop rate and uses cheap parts. This supplies you with cheap repairs. Perfect if you want to fix your car and dump it. Not so hot if you want to keep it but it keeps you coming back. Until you become aware.
