I could not have asked for a better experience. I took a car into be be evaluated before purchasing and knew when I left they had taken the time and concern to check everything! The front desk was not only polite but also knowledgeable and very helpful!!

They were very friendly. I was able to get an appointment right away. They explained everything my car needed and what it would cost before they did anything. And I got my car back the next day. Everything is working well and no problems.

by - Verified Customer September 21, 2016

Excellent service as always. Thanks Ray and staff for making this happen!

This was our first visit and we plan on returning. We had an oil change on our 2009 VW Beetle. Our only regret is that we didn't learn of this shop earlier. Thank you for an overall wonderful experience.

by - Verified Customer September 14, 2016

Ray recommended preventive maintenance but not replacing parts with useful life remaining.

by - Verified Customer September 13, 2016

Very good service.

by - Verified Customer September 08, 2016

Had a breakdown on the road and was confident that they could take care of a Volvo specific problem from past experiences. It was handled in a timely fashion and at a reasonable cost.

Tires were replaced and balanced while I waited.

Great customer service. Staff easily made a same day appointment for my car. Good experience start to finish!

by - Verified Customer September 08, 2016

Fast, friendly... GREAT!

by - Verified Customer September 07, 2016

I told them to keep the car overnight and repair it the next day. Nope, fixed it that evening and also changed my oil. Nobody else would do that!

by - Verified Customer September 07, 2016

Work done to satisfaction.

by - Verified Customer September 06, 2016

It went well. I wish the brakes would have been checked.

The staff was very friendly over the phone and in person. I really enjoyed that they were able to do an odometer check on my new(ish) vehicle on short notice late in the afternoon on a Friday- that is hard to come by. They were the 4th shop that I called at 4:45PM! When I showed up everyone was super friendly and they have a sweet little dog that roams around looking for cuddles- a huge bonus for me!
My only critique is that I wish the inspector would have caught that I also needed an emissions test to get my tags in addition to an odometer reading. I couldn't get my tags that following Saturday and had to return the next week to get emissions.

Excellent service.

by - Verified Customer August 31, 2016

Everyone here was so friendly and knowledgeable. They care about their customers being happy. They communicated with me about the repairs and got it done super fast! Of course, the best part was that they ended up saving me over $3500 on the quote I got elsewhere. Everything about my experience here was wonderful and I will be getting all my services here from now on.

by - Verified Customer August 31, 2016

My Volvo was idling rough and making a whining noise. The folks at AE were able to diagnose the issue and get me back on the road next day.

They did a great job very quickly.

Car needed repair without notice. You got it in and repaired it the next day. Repair was not quite right and I returned it within a couple of days when dash lights lit up like Christmas. Remediation was promptly made. Original transaction was incorrectly billed, I pointed it out to no avail and it was only caught and validated on the return repair.

They do great work. We take our own vehicles there and they are very personable.

by - Verified Customer September 22, 2015

In the long run they have saved me money, just recently I went to have a switch replaced and that would've been four hundred dollars and he just fixed the old one and charged me for 30 minutes of labor.

by September 16, 2015

I'm satisfied with their service.

by - Verified Customer September 10, 2015

They are honest and they do a good job.

It's not always the most convenient place for me to go. They steered me right 99 percent of time. They seem like they are very honest, and I trust them and they primarily work on Subarus and Volvos. I own a Subaru and I will be going there in the next couple of weeks to get a safety and emissions inspection.
