DO NOT take your car to this dishonest shop! I was quoted $700 for a clutch repair and I paid up front. When I went to pick up the car the price had jumped to $1168! I said they should have called and authorized the overage like the law mandates. they said 'we couldn't get ahold of you'. They were going to keep my car until I paid and I finally got them to release it on the promise of future payment. The more I thought about it the madder I got so I decided not to pay. The owner showed up at my door and a shouting match ensued. Two days later my car was sabotaged in the parking lot of my apt building. Guess what got sabotaged? The clutch!
FRAUDULENT and DISHONEST.
This shop quoted my wife $10 to install a car battery. She came in, they installed it, and then charged her $60--nearly the cost of the battery itself! Nobody charges more than $10-15 to install a battery--Sears, Wal-Mart, Einstein's, dealerships, etc. They ignored their quote and charged 400% more than the next most expensive competitor. This is pure fraud and we've filed a dispute with Visa.
DO NOT COME HERE.
After becoming frustrated with the dealer, I decided to use Automotive Repair Specialist off of Garrity in Nampa.
I first used this shop to do my emissions and found the help to be refreshing. When speaking with the owner, Brent, I discovered he has a very good knowledge of GM vehicles. I own two Cadillacs so this was encouraging to me. I later used this shop for both my cars. I had to replace the alternator on one and the starter on the other one. After the repairs were done, I called around to see if I overpaid. It turns out I did not. This shop saved me over $1500 between the two repairs! Thank you!
