Service and time met my standards.

by April 21, 2016

I think they are over priced.

Reply from API Service – by API - Bel Air May 13, 2016

Dear Customer it is our intent that every customer has a positive experience at API. If you think we are overpriced than please ask yourself what it will cost for cheap in the future. We hire the very best to insure your vehicle is fixed correctly and that doesn't include the other added costs it takes to make sure you're happy and you get what you pay for. I do appreciate your comment and I would urge you to give me a call so I may quantify what you think is over priced.

Customer service is excellent. I was shocked to receive a call a few weeks later asking how the car was running. And the fact that they bring my car to me after it is done. We have four little ones and only one vehicle to fit all them so it puts the figuring out how to pick up my car not a problem.

by Verified Customer June 18, 2015

Very Friendly and knowledgeable staff. No extra charges.

We used to have very good service here and have taken our cars here for over 10 years, back when it was Auto King. This past service was extremely expensive and the price was not communicated with us prior to consent. The work that was done was good, but the bill was a huge surprise. $400 for an oil change is excessive at best. Part to replace that was worn was given an estimate of $1024. Actual cost of replacement was closer to $1400. And the tire rotation and balancing price was not reasonable. The overall cost of the repair was around $2500, far greater than cost expected. This kind of experience had never happened to us before at this place, but we will not be returning again with any of our vehicles.

by Verified Customer February 02, 2014

We were very impressed with our latest visit and plan to return.

by Verified Customer February 02, 2014

Good service.
