Ha. Well you'd only do it once... unless you're a glutton for punishment. I believe we discussed that in another thread. Regardless, since no one holds a gun to your head to take your aircraft to a shop, you as owner are responsible for a certain level of due diligence. Drop off the aircraft and tell them simply "fix it" or "inspect it", then get surprised when they do and charge you for it? I believe this is exactly what the Reddit OP did when it came to getting the "extra" mx done. You don't know how many owners have told me "do whatever it takes to finish the job." Not.
