RepairPal's Assesment
Our assessment of the SAF-T Auto Center in Wallingford revealed an excellent technician and service adviser team. Two of the three have been working together for 14 years and all are ASE certified! Their recent addition of an apprentice, ready to learn from this experienced duo, shows a noteworthy commitment to the long term stability of this shop. We found they have the tooling and specialized diagnostic equipment we would expect to find at one of our Certified shops. Convenience is also a priority of this shop. They offer a local shuttle service, or should you decide to wait while your vehicle is being serviced, WiFi is available in their comfortable waiting area.
