Francisco, (76 station in SF on the corner of Ocean and Miramar) and I
brought in a competitor's coupon which they promised to accept.
Then after 20 minutes, the come over and say that one of these tiny
vaccum tube seal things had been removed off my Toyota and that it was
now considered "modified" but they claim they did me a favor by not
marking it "tampered." THey said they noticed a noise from the engine
and noticed it was missing, even though the car had passed emissions
wise.

Then they tell me to go up the block to Kragen and buy the part(was
only $2), how convenient that Kragen is just up the street--
*wink*wink...
THen they have me retest it, and CHARGE ME again!! for the test. Most
places retest for FREE.

THe cost of using this "coupon" was that they could charge me MUCH
more than I should have paid for a damn smog check. I am sure that
there was nothing wrong with my car, since I just went to the dealer
last week for a tune up. They are out to CHEAT people. It would be
nice to check their fail rate, but I don't think these are reported to
the state, only the pass certificates.
