Deborah Huston of Bonita Springs owns a 2000 Cadillac DeVille.

Two years ago, one of the power windows slipped down and wouldn't come back up.

Huston called Academy Auto Glass.

The owner, Orestes Garcia, told her this was a problem with the regulator. He could do the repair for about $300 with a reconditioned regulator, he said, but if she wanted a new regulator, available only from a Cadillac dealer, it would cost her more than $500.

Huston took the reconditioned deal. Garcia fixed the window, giving Huston a guarantee on the job.

Summary: Cadillac Owner pays $300 for installation of a used part for a job that is easy to do and requires a $50 (new) part. Then pays the same price x3 more times.
