DONT' GO HERE IF YOU'RE FEMALE
I went in to get my state inspection done on my 2006 VW today, and after sitting in the waiting room forever (which is to be expected, just annoying) they call me up to the desk to tell me they can't pass my car b/c my wipers don't work. I ask them to please show me how they don't work b/c I had just used them last week. He told me the best thing to do would be to run an $85 diagnostic so they could figure out what the problem was. I said no thanks, and took my keys back. As soon as I got back in my car and tested the wipers, surprise surprise, they worked. I went back inside and dragged the guy out to look at my car and my fully functional wipers, and he said that he guessed they could check my car out again. The worst thing about the experience was that he didn't even apologize for being such a d*ck hole. Lesson, ladies - don't fall for the "run a diagnostics" trick. They just think you're an idiot because you're female and can scam $85 out of you.
