If they enforce it

If DMV is going to make so many rules, they need to STOp all of the CROOKED auto shops in Wilmington. Last year my elderly mother took her car into a tune shop on S. College. Accross from Wesley. They not only failed her for a slightly "cracked" serpentine belt. The only portion of a belt that can be failed is for the Power Steering, and the belt has to ba damaged or not usable. I have used a badly cracked serpentine belt to pull a 302 out of my truck from a motor hoist. A cracked belt does NOT fail you. Period. Also, her car is a 1994 but she was charged for the new emissions. Her car being a 1994 does not have to pass the new emission standard testing. It can still get the traditional inspection. Being a shop manager in Raleigh, I drove down to Wilmingotn where the manager refused to speak to me. I have been running a 36 bay shop for 12 years and have had my master ase for two decades. I beileve I know what I am speaking about and these people in Wilmington are crooks. DMV never returned my request for investigation either.. Don't start adding new rules if you won't enforce the rules that are our there currently.
