Verified CustomerOctober 19, 2015

They are very knowledgeable, friendly, and give loaners - which is very helpful.

Verified CustomerOctober 16, 2015

I always get great service and never get repairs I don't need. Everybody on staff is always nice makes you feel good.

October 14, 2015

Prices are much too high, and the man who is the manager and runs the front desk is extremely unfriendly, and has NO patience when questions of repairs are asked in detail. Extremely poor communication.

Verified CustomerOctober 12, 2015

Outstanding service and communication.

Professional service - we went on a test drive to try and recreate my problem, I was given a loaner car, repair price was in line, and my car was ready same day.

Verified CustomerSeptember 09, 2015

I've had my car serviced at Accurate for several years now. Mike's crew is very thorough, and they diagnose problems in a very detailed fashion, followed by solid recommendations and repair methodologies. They as a rule look for the most economical method of fixing a problem, but also look for the long-goal solution to prevent it being an issue in the foreseeable future.

Verified CustomerSeptember 09, 2015

Great team at Accurate Auto. They tell me what really needs to be fixed on my older car and what I need to "keep an eye on". I really trust them and that's hard to come by in the car service industry in my opinion.

Verified CustomerSeptember 01, 2015

I like their fairness & reliability.

Service is prompt. Labor is provided to the customer's satisfaction. All parts are backed by warranty and working performance to the satisfaction of Accurate. Treat all customers individually and all work is not completed until the customer is satisfied.

Good quality service, reasonable prices, loaner policy.

Verified CustomerAugust 08, 2015

I trust their service and appreciate the fact that they are honest with me.

Verified CustomerAugust 04, 2015

I think the guy's name that took the information on what I needed done is, Larry. He isn't very customer friendly and considering I spent $600. on the repair, I would like to have a smile when I come in and not feel like they are doing me a favor to fix my car.

The service is excellent.. the work is done quickly and it does help with the loaner car.

Verified CustomerJuly 11, 2015

I have always used them for all the repairs in my vehicles and have always performed excellent work.

Verified CustomerJuly 10, 2015

Problem was not fixed. Parts that were removed/moved over where not reinstalled correctly.

Verified CustomerJuly 02, 2015

To start off Mike and his staff are just fabulous. Accurate also has great relationships with their clients. Their loaner car option makes life easier for people to carry on their daily duties without interruption. Saturday hours are also a plus.

Verified CustomerJuly 02, 2015

For the twenty years they always were polite did great work - gave me a loaner when I needed it and and always got my car repaired and cleaned up in a nice amount of time.

They are a local shop and their prices are fair.

Verified CustomerJune 29, 2015

They charged for work that was not performed, brake lines were leaking, they broke off the bleeders on the rear calipers, they didn't remove the old brake lines.

Verified CustomerJune 27, 2015

I have been a client of theirs for over 30 years.

Verified CustomerJune 26, 2015

Courteous and they go out of their way to help you.

Verified CustomerJune 19, 2015

I like this shop a lot, but the last time I was there I spent almost $3,000 and my car still sounds funny. I haven't had the chance to take it back.

Never had a bad experience with them. Good diagnostic skills and fair pricing.

Verified CustomerJune 12, 2015

Repairs are always done correctly - prices are very fair and I know what it will cost before the repair is done.

September 18, 2012

I love this place. This is finally as a car shop I can trust, they are not the cheapest but ill pay more for knowing that they are trust worthy and always do a great job. They also have a free loaner service where you only have to pay for the gas.
