My wifes Grand Cherokee overheated right by his shop. We live an hour away from Fresno so I told her to let it cool off and then take it right to him. They said they would do an inspection and go from there. Everything seemed fine. Later that day my wife calls me and says that they don't really know whats wrong but they are going to change the thermostat, and flush the engine. It would be 360 bucks and then if that didn't work they would have to send out the radiator for another 300+ bucks to have it cleaned out because they think maybe it could be plugged up. I was PISSED! Flush the engine??? What the hell would you flush the engine for???? I called up Arams right away and the guy explained the same thing to me that he did to my wife. I said "how much are you charging to change the thermostat?" He said that would be $150 bucks!!!!!! He also told me it was expensive because part of the a/c system had to be removed to get to the thermostat. THATS BS!! There is nothing in the way of the thermostat. I told him to stop what he was doing and I would come and get it in the morning when it was cooler. They charged me $99 for their "inspection," which they never found out what was wrong, only told me it could be upwards of 800 dollars before it was fixed. Next day I picked it up and brought it home. 20 min and 15 bucks later I had the thermostat changed. Turned out that did not fix the problem so we took to our local mechanic. They did their inspection which was only $42 and within about 30 min. they figured out that my radiator cap was only holding 5lbs of pressure and it is suppose to hold 18lbs. They replaced the cap and $66 dollars later (gallon of coolant, quart of oil, radiator cap and inspection fee) my jeep is now fixed.
The story gets even better! I called Aram because I wanted to know what in the world they did during their "inspection" and I wanted to know why they tried to take advantage of my wife. I explained the entire story to him while he listened. He got very upset and started raising his voice. At that point I said, "Look, you guys screwed up and tried to charge me a ton of money when it was just a radiator cap. I want my money back or I will go to the BAR and BBB." At that point I couldn't believe my ears. The owner of this company, Aram, called me an A**hole and told me because of my stupidity he would never give me my money back. I was in shock! He kept cussing at me as I was trying to just talk to the guy. Finally after a good 2 or 3 min. of him telling me how stupid I am and calling me an A**hole for "threatening" him he calmed down and told me to bring in the bad cap and the old thermostat. I told him I would but then realized after we had gotten off the phone that I had thrown the thermostat away a couple days prior and the garbage had already gone out. I also don't think that I should have to drive an hour to his shop for him to "test" them. He will probably just test them and say they are fine anyway. Because of the way that he spoke to me and because they tried to take advantage of my wife I am writing this review, going to the BAR and BBB.
As an auto broker, I highly recommend Aram's to all of my clients for all of their vehicle servicing needs. You can count on Aram and his technicians to give you an up front and honest assessment, without "padding" the bill with unnecessary repairs. Their work is done in a timely fashion and their customer service is outstanding!!
Aram is my guy and a great mechanic. Very fair and patient. Finally a mechanic that takes time to listen to what your needs are. Also very knowledgable about all types if cars. Do not take your car for repair or service anywhere else plus he doesn't charge you up the ass for things that don't need. To be replaced. Go Arams!!!!
Aram's is the BEST of the BEST! I would trust my car to be in no better hands.
I've always experienced reliable, honest care here and so have the people I have recommended. It's nice to leave my car someplace I trust to someone I have come to know as a friend.
All of his employees take the time to explain things thoroughly so I understand, without rushing through. They are all friendly, respectful and extremely hard working. Aram's prices are affordable and accurate. Aram has something great going on at his place, I don't know how he does!
Don't trust anyone else except Aram and don't believe anything contrary to the excellence he provides!
