Yes. I've been doing it since Day One, because that's how I do shit. Ethically. I've been doing it in this area since the early 90s and am working with the kids of some of my earlier customers.
If you tell people the truth, you don't have to remember what you told them. There are service writers locally who sell $1400 30K services on new Subarus, I'm not one of them. I make a decent living, and when I bump into customers at the store or wherever, we often stop and shoot the breeze. I don't have to dodge one aisle over and hide behind the canned peas, and I like it that way.
I'm sure I could make more money hammering people.
