Excellent service, very nice people, and they do not push any other service on you.

September 21, 2012

The customer service was fantastic and my car was ready on time.

Verified CustomerSeptember 21, 2012

Their service is good.

Verified CustomerSeptember 21, 2012

I would not recommend them to anyone, I would not go back there. If I had a chance to tell anybody to stay away from them, I would!

Verified CustomerSeptember 20, 2012

Repairs are costly and being without my car is something I hate. ACA was most helpful in minimizing all the discomfort associated with auto repair. Their courteous service and fairness in which I was treated was a welcome change from previous experiences. Thank you ACA Automotive.

Always personable and high quality service. Thank you!

Verified CustomerSeptember 19, 2012

It's just a good place, a friendly atmosphere and they help. If you need a ride home they will give you a ride home, if something goes wrong they will give you a courtesy call and let you know.

Verified CustomerSeptember 19, 2012

The cost of my service in my opinion was overpriced. When you can look in the penny saver and see the price offered, that should be the price charged. As a repeat customer having to ask for the preferred cost should not be necessary. I always feel like I am being ripped off after any service at this repair shop.

September 18, 2012

I highly recommend ACA Automotive.

Did not tell truth about repairs. They changed the story from phone call to inform when car was ready and picking up call. Staff extremely unprofessional. Be very cautious about using this shop!

Happy about the repairs that were done

Verified CustomerSeptember 07, 2012

Robert, who always helps us, goes out of his way to make sure we are taken care, love him :) But all the guys are really awesome...

Verified CustomerSeptember 02, 2012

Victor is the best! He is clear, honest, and personable.

Verified CustomerSeptember 01, 2012

In this case the repair shop could not find the cause of the was at this time they called the dealer when they are in trouble. I don't know if they have the right test equipment. This was the first time they have left a job incomplete. Wiring was left exposed,panels we not put back in place, screws were stripped and calls were missed. If this was my first time going to this shop I would not go back, but heretofore they have given great service. I guess everyone has a bad day. They did perform a smog test I didn't authorize but it was an attempt to repair the problem. They couldn't turn off a "check engine" light....which I did after returning home with the vehicle by disconnecting the negative terminal, this allowing the system to re-set itself....the orginal problem thaI I needed to have the vehicle pass the smog test....which it did.

If they keep your car more than one week, they should wash your car as a courtesy.

Verified CustomerAugust 25, 2012

ACA Automotive helped me in a very personal way. Having owned an Isuzu Trooper since it was purchased new in 1993, they marketed themselves as specialists for repair of this vehicle. Since they no longer manufacture Troopers, I was very thankful that they had this knowledge. Coming off another shop's failure to resolve problems I was having with the Trooper, ACA was very welcoming, engaging and honest about what was truly needed to correct the problem I had, and they certainly delivered in resolution, as well as built up my confidence that they can deliver as charged. I will now continue to use them for all of my vehicles - as they are honest, reliable and trustworthy. I highly recommend them.

I was quoted $1400 on my repairs to my vehicle after the $80 charge to inspect the vehicle. I felt the price was too high and was going to get a second opinion and the service desk said they were going to shop around for cheaper prices. I do not understand why they couldnt have shopped around for the cheapest prices to begin with but only dropped the price to $1300. My co-worker advised me to a mechanic of his and thg job was completed for $500. The vehicle is running perfect. I had been going to ACA for 3-4 years prior and will not return because of this instance. Who knows how many other times they have overcharged me.

Verified CustomerAugust 17, 2012

Excellent verbal and written communication with customers; final invoice in clear language and detail.

I would certainly go back if needed.

Verified CustomerAugust 08, 2012

I was charged a minimum fee and no work was done

Verified CustomerAugust 07, 2012

Was told I needed a new battery according to a test/diognostic which I was charged $70 plus the fee for the New battery, including labor. 2 days later my car wouldn't start, so I took my car back to ACA and was told it was actually the Starter. What is the point of a test/diaognostic if it fails to find the real issue. So not only was I charged for a test that failed, a battery that I didn't need but received a lack of follow through from ACA to let me know that the car was ready and I had to call them to see if my car was ready and then expected to pick-up my car when they offer a shuttle service only to find out that this service is not available after 5pm. Let me add by saying 5pm was the time I was promised my car and that I would be receiving a phone call from ACA that my vehicle was ready. They did refund me half of the $70 diaognostic fee but better Service to the customer would have been to not charge at all for a test that does not work.

Verified CustomerAugust 04, 2012

I have been pleased in the past but this specific visit seemed like I ended up paying for them to check a bunch of stuff, not even fix it, and then it took way longer than expected when I needed my car the next day, so they weren't able to do any of the service I needed after all. I was pretty bummed. They don't apply the diagnostic costs towards repairs which seems like most other places do nowadays...

I was charged for tire rotation. My tire pressure was not checked. Tires were not rotated or pressure checked on my wife's car when it was serviced. We were told that my wife's care needs a valve job. Another mechanic said it did not.

I have been going to this shop for quite a few years and they are always very thorough with my repairs and if they suggest something needs to be done to my car I trust that it does. This is very important for me. I don't mind paying the money if I know the car needs the service they suggest.

Verified CustomerJune 28, 2012

Customer service is really important to me. This includes the correct spelling of my name. ACA always gets it right. This survey intro letter got it wrong.

Wasnt thrilled that they put a customer discount card onto my car keychain. The metal ring was not meant to have something squeezed onto it and it stretched out my keyring. The next day my car remote got separated from the key and temporarily lost while running an errand. I went back to the store/parking lot to search and later found the remote but not without panic that I would need to purchase a new remote which is not inexpensive.

mechanics are in too big of a hurry...making too many little errors on all the cars in my family. I am done with them

Excellent customer service

Verified CustomerJune 13, 2012

I was quoted a repair which would have been unnecessary and overly costly. I chose to take my vehicle to another company and the diagnosis was completely different and the cost was more than 1/2 the quoted cost from ACA. I have recently heard of other related situations from acquaintances I have spoke to.

June 13, 2012

After almost two full days, my car was still not done when promised. I don't even think my alignment was completely corrected.

Verified CustomerJune 11, 2012

I recommend ACA to anyone who needs a repair shop for their car. Their customer service is second to none, their work is great and I trust their recommendations. I have never felt pressured to have work done. In fact, when I have asked them if I need other work done, they usually patiently explain to me why I should or shouldn't have it done. And they usually say I don't need it done. What mechanic does that??!! You can probably find a place that's cheaper but I think it's worth paying a little more for a repair shop I trust and like.

Verified CustomerJune 09, 2012

Both check in and check out was geat. These guys are pros. It might cost some $...but you don't have to return your car for the same problem. Adam is the boss and is VERY FAIR. Get it done right...not fast. Use these guys. I used them for the past 5 yrs.

April 21, 2015


In June, 2014 I had work done to my vehicle at ACA including getting my radiator replaced. I purchased a one year/12,000 mile warranty at time of service.

April, 2015 my radiator was leaking. ACA denied service to my vehicle stating I needed the radiator flushed prior to them repairing it. I asked them why and they couldn't give me a straight answer, stating that there was corrosion caused by some unknown incident and they wouldn't service my radiator until it had been power flushed. I informed them no one had service the radiator except them, they still denied service though I was still within the warranty I purchased.

After I was ready to leave and get the radiator flushed, they came out to the parking lot and told me they could, in fact, service the vehicle "no questions asked."

When I picked up my vehicle the next day, the radiator, hoses, clamps and coolant sensor had all been replaced. I don't understand why everything had to be replaced so soon and I don't understand why they tried to deny service when I was well within warranty.

I had an estimate for a different repair with them. $900 dollars at ACA, actually got it fixed at a different AAA approved location, less than $200 including labor.

Need I say more?

November 30, 2010

AAA sent me there for a smog check since they are AAA approved. All i can say is that i was blown away from the start to finish. My car failed the smog test because of the check engine light was on. The charge for a diagnostic is 70.00, so i gave the go ahead since it had to be done in order to register my car. If i chose not to have the diagnostic performed, i was told that there was no charge for the test. As it turned out, it was a loose gas cap, and i was only charged then for the smog test only. Wow.

May 21, 2010

This AAA shop is the best repair and maintenance facility that i have ever gone to. A friend recommended that i take my BMW to them instead of the dealer that i have always gone to. Not only did i save a bundle of money, but the service and time was awesome. Ask for VIctor

May 02, 2010

The prices are just like at the dealerships, so anybody looking for a mechanic and to save I highly recommend to shop around. I did like the repairs that were done and so far I am satisfied with the results. But, I recently took it for a brief checkup and the cashier recommended that I give it a steam engine cleanup to remove any dirt and residues and see of there truly is a minor leak, as he put it. I asked him if he wrote his advice on the paper and he said yes, I, being the person who knows the legalities that things must be in writing, told him that it is not on the paper. He in turn became defensive and said as he put it, "I'm just recommending and it doesn't have to be on paper". I researched with the car dealer and they said they don't recommend steam engine cleanup due to the electronic components there may get damaged. I have now concluded that I may not go back to ACA for service in the future.
