Looking for a Reputable shop Near Ocean Pines

Hey, I am looking for a shop for my father to take his 01 XJ to when it needs repairs, He keeps going to a local shop that is ripping him off. The shop he went to stripped his oil pan drain plug and charged $600 for parts and labor for a new pan. Not to mention $1,200 for Front and rear Pads, Rotors, and rubber hoses. The calipers were not replaced and worst of all my father only had 800 miles on the front pads and rotors when my step mother took it in to have the rear brakes done.

He also has a 79 F150 that will need some work done on it also.

My stepmother works in Salisbury so I don't think it would be an issue.

if you don't mind the back yard mechanic type I can do anything except pulling the engine at my house or can even do it at there house. im a lot cheaper then a shop and will not make up bogus repairs my average is parts + 35 per hour labor. I have 12 years experience and graduated from Worcester vocational mechanic program. I live in willards md which is 15 mins from ocean pines. if your interested shoot me a pm.

just for an example I would have charged $100 for both rear drums, $25 for rear shoes, $25 for rear lines + 2 hr labor so it would of been $220 total. I would have checked the front brakes as well but only would have changed them if needed and after getting consent from the owner. I hate how shops go doing things you don't ask for just to make a buck.
