My car failed safety inspection for play in the wheels, diagnosis was that it needed new tie rods plus alignment, $1100. Also told my wife that the car was not safe to drive. This seemed expensive to me, and surprising, especially since I had not noticed or heard any sign of something being wrong, so I called Parkway Shell to see what they would do it for. They quoted me $750. I took the car to them, and they said that there was absolutely no way that the amount of play would have warranted a failed inspection and that it was normal. They re-inspected and the vehicle passed.
