My power steering had been leaking for a while and I was trying to call around to get an idea of cost to replace the pressure hose and possibly the pump (wasn't sure if it was still operable). A friend had recommended Aeschbach's, so I emailed to see if i could get a rough estimate for repairs. I received a prompt reply and the man suggested I bring the car in for an inspection to get an accurate diagnosis. Paid around $65 for an inspection and they called me with the bad news that I did indeed need both the pressure hose and the power steering pump, with the estimate being roughly $1260 (holy cow!). I had previously talked to another shop who gave an estimate of around $850, so I decided to pick my car up and get a second opinion. I called another reputable garage in my area and spoke to the owner, who was confused at why I would need both, seeing as the power steering worked when it had fluid, it just leaked out within a few days. They got me in quick and looked at my vehicle FOR FREE! They let me know that my current pump DID still work and I would only need the hose. They fixed my car the next day for just over $400 and my car has been running amazing since then. I won't be going anywhere else now. So upset with the fact that I almost paid $1260 for repairs i didn't even need, but so happy it worked out it the end.
