I just heard back from the mechanic doing the State inspection of the Bronco before I can put tags on it.

Heres the list of things it needs fixed:

+Power Steering Belt

+Muffler & Tailpipe

+Driver Seat (he says the back twists when you sit in it, I never noticed anything wrong with it, I think hees insane, or maybe he broke it himself)

+Wiper Blades

+Rear Brake Hoses

+Engine Mounts

+Windshield (says it has a big scratch, which I dont remember it having)

+Interior Mirror (I have no idea what's wrong with it)

+E-Brake Cables


I hate this crap!

Move to Texas ours is like $12 and if someone says you need some crazy crap like that fixed you take it somewhere else and the next person will be like it all looks fine.

Take it somewhere else dude, I've worked around MD state inspectors before and they defanetly don't have to be so anal as to fail you on a scratched windshield and a belt. That bastard's just trying to get your money. 75 bucks for an honest inspector is a lot cheaper than a new windsheild. Tell that guy to kiss your ass and take it to somebody else.:thumbup

Definately go elsewhere and don't darken his doors again

Let him know you know it's a cash grab on his part "and you'll tell 10 people, and they'll tell ten people and so on and so on, etc.

Don't make his Christmas for him, pay the $75.00 and leave P.O.d and let him know it.

Sixlitre

p.s./
Who'se wearing the pants down there anyway, the taxpayer or the government ?

Can't toss stones anymore, 25 years after most American states started emission testing Ontario has finally picked up the torch and is burning our backsides with it. As I understand it, many enlightened (honest) states have ceased doing the testing.

We don't have inspections here but in CA and CO I would never leave the shop and wait for a call back. Stand there and walk through the inspection with the guy.

If they won't let you then find another shop!

Inspections in CO

Inspections in CO are interesting. Betty passes emissions with flying colors... and like others have said, they're talking about eliminating emissions tests - too many people pass it too easily (vehicles are built with better emissions).

Its stupid to have a body inspection.

Good luck - you have any relatives in another state out there that could register you?

MD definetly sucks for that stuff. I believe they honor northern VA inspections. Call them and tell em you are moving to VA temporarily for work and ask if they will except the inspection from there. I know they except the emissions testing from here in VA as my camaro is registered in MD and I live in alexandria. I can probably hook you up with a easy going shop if you can find that info out.

Good luck
