Verified CustomerFebruary 18, 2015

They did very good with customer service. They are very clean. They gave me an estimate and told me what the issue was, and what was required. My car was clean. It was pretty good customer service though.

Verified CustomerFebruary 14, 2015

They weren't busy and took care of me right away. I've done all the labs. The price doesn't seem that bad. My brother had his car in for two weeks with a mechanic from our neighborhood. I told them what I needed and the problem, they solved it, and called me in the next half hour. They weren't slacking on the job. I couldn't fix the motor heater myself. They charged me $195 or whatever it was.

Verified CustomerJanuary 31, 2015

They are very friendly and courteous people. They give you a good deal, they are forthright with everything they do. I have been dealing with them for a long time, they are the best.

I like the way I was treated, they told me exactly what was done to my car. They were very courteous, my vehicle was done when they said it would be done.

Verified CustomerNovember 12, 2014

They are excellent, I have been dealing with them for a number of years. They are very knowledgeable, when they tell you that something is wrong they are very honest.

Verified CustomerNovember 08, 2014

The last two time that I was there, there was dishonesty involved based on my pervious knowledge of the vehicle. It reflected the last visit. The last vehicle we took there had a similar problem. They had a very similar answer to the problem on a different vehicle. I believe that even though they offered a one time fee for the diagnosis of the vehicle, both thimes they also said they needed additional funds to further their diagnosis of the condition of the vehicle. When we took it somewhere else that wasn't the case. They did not uphold the diagnosis of the vehicle.

They do a great service. Their prices are a little too high.

Verified CustomerDecember 10, 2013

They did a number of diagnostics, including checking the radiator coolant, and it ended up freezing and busting and I ended up replacing. It cost four hundred dollars to repair. I assumed I was good for the winter.

He was friendly and honest. He did a good job.

Verified CustomerDecember 06, 2013

They were really good. I live in an apartment. I'm almost 70 years old and use a walker. They came to my home, gave me a jump and took me back to the shop and told me what was wrong with my car. In all my years I've never had any one so kind and considerate, especially with their shuttle.

Verified CustomerDecember 03, 2013

They were good, courteous, and knowledgeable. Good repair facility. Those are hard to find.

I took my car to Auto-Lab in Southgate because it was overheating and coolant was leaking everywhere. The service manager was very friendly and prompt! I didn't get my car to them until 4:30 by 5 they knew what was wrong, the price seemed very reasonable and they had me back on the road before 6pm when the close!! I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
