Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerMarch 08, 2015

It seems like they really try to get right to the solution, I had to bring it back because there were still some issues. They didn't try to charge me for the second visit because I had to come back and I had already spent a lot of money.

Verified CustomerMarch 04, 2015

They have great people there.

March 02, 2015

I don't know them that well. They are still in the process of learning about what is wrong with my car. They are not as knowledgeable as I thought they would be, they could be better.

February 26, 2015

They let me go longer on a payment on it the lady was very understanding.

February 25, 2015

The work was quick, I didn't have to wait for an appointment and I felt that my car was in good hands.

My car is not fixed. They can not tell me what is wrong with my car.

Verified CustomerFebruary 24, 2015

The woman who answers the phone is not very knowledgeable and they don't check their work to make sure everything is functional and that everything works.

February 17, 2015

They treat me very nice and whatever needs to be done always get done! If there is ever a problem with our car they find it. They treat us good. They are very nice people.

Verified CustomerFebruary 16, 2015

They have always been real good to me.

Verified CustomerFebruary 03, 2015

I just wasn't happy with the work that they did.

January 28, 2015

There are other repair options, they do good work and I have always been pleased with their work. I only go to them for certain repairs, and I go to other shops for the rest of the repairs based on the cost.

Verified CustomerJanuary 27, 2015

Quick service, they notified me about everything that was going on as they were diagnosing the issues.

Verified CustomerJanuary 22, 2015

They fixed the car, I thought the price was reasonable and they pretty much knew exactly what was wrong. They had never dealt with the issue before but after I explained what was happening they said they knew what was wrong.

Well I had a break job on my truck and they did a great job. I had a couple cruise controls put on different cars in the past. Well so far what I had worked on has been a good job. Well the service has been pretty prompt. Just say prompt. Well I probably traded things there the last twenty five years. When I take something there, I want it done right.

Verified CustomerNovember 13, 2014

They were nice and friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and I feel they gave me a good value for what they charged me. They're knowledgeable, and they didn't feed me a bunch of bull, no crap, no bunch of bs.

November 13, 2014

I took my truck in because it had difficulty starting. They replaced the battery of which they thought it was the cause but was not. They charged an outrageous price to change the battery and that didn't even fix the actual problem.

November 12, 2014

They are doing good work, they guarantee their work, get you in and out as they promise. When they say they get you in, and they give you an estimate time, it is pretty much the time. They are always friendly, it is a clean place. They do good electrical work that a lot of places are not able to do.

Verified CustomerNovember 06, 2014

They did a good job. It's fair pricing. They were fast.

They are a specialty type of store, basically electronics, and if I have something else I go to my mechanic.

Verified CustomerNovember 03, 2014

They did a good job. They're very knowledgeable.

Verified CustomerOctober 30, 2014

I had good customer service there.

Verified CustomerOctober 21, 2014

They did a great job, and it was fast, they did everything I needed them to.

Verified CustomerOctober 15, 2014

They are the best when it comes to vehicle electronics. They use to be called Automotive Electric, and they are very thorough when it comes to trouble shooting. Pretty much it's just they are knowledgeable. There are not other people in the area who have their knowledge.
