Never go to auto zone in silver springs, md!!!! Shady place.
First off I just went for a new battery and was told they weren't sure they could install it. Then once they decided they could they took my old battery out, put a new one in and couldn't get the terminal clamp on. They said I needed a battery Cap but they didn't have any! Next they made me walk to advanced auto to buy one in 10 degree weather, but advanced did not have one either!
Meanwhile there was some backyard mechanic walking around outside trying to take advantage of people. First he told me I needed an alternator before they put the battery in when I knew it was just my battery. Then he kept jumping in and working on my car with the actual employee. I asked if he worked there and the explanation I was given was that he was a guy that helped them out with things they couldn't fix.
.. vague! So the employee tells me to flirt with the mechanic guy so he'll fix my car for free. Didn't know this was going to cost MORE money or that I'd have to "flirt" with someone to get a very simple, basic job done that I could have done myself!!!
So they talk and I have really no idea what is going on and no one will give me a straight answer. Next thing I know he's rigged my car by putting a bolt in side the terminal clip and wants money from me for rigging my car! All the cash I have is a 5 but he wants more.
Tells me to go to the ATM to get him more money!!!! I am furious with Auto Zone and will never return!!!
