I have a love / hate relationship with my Mini Cooper. I just had my rear shocks replaced (a leading contender for the "least fun way to spend $600 award) and they took such care of me. I got a ride to my office and when it turned out they needed more time, I knew that it was a fair price and reliable work.
British Auto Center is great, I've come here over the last two years several times and they are always able to explain to me what's wrong with my Land Rover and I never feel like their prices are over inflated. I always feel like their first concern is my safety, which is why I bring my car in to get looked over before a road trip.
I took my Land Rover for some work. They were fast, thorough, and their price was what they quoted me before doing the work. They walked me through all the steps, showed me all the work and pieces his team replaced. Have taken our other car there for inspection and brake work as well. Same great experience.
So I was having electrical problems with my car, it would die on me start goofy and generally give me a hard time. I went to British Auto and they took a listen to me describe the problem and this helped me diagnose it. In the end it turning out to be just a loose ground cable coming off of my battery. I need a new nut to secure it they gave me one and it was installed they ran the diagnostic again. It was fixed. They just wanted to make sure I was getting the right solution for my problem and with his excellent customer service skills he did just that. In conclusion I wanted to ass, my Dad was a mechanic and I worked at his garage as a kid so let's just say for me to give a five star rating someone has to be excellent and British Auto definitely is.
I went to British Auto Center today to have them put on a new grill on my Jaguar, not only did they do the job quick but it was also on carefully. They also installed HID's for my headlights and fogs. The people at the British Auto Center will be the only other set of hand that touch my car other than the dealer. This is truly a great shop with awesome people running the front and the back flawlessly. And believe it or not, their prices are great. my only gripe is that they didn't let me buy them lunch.
This place has the most unbelievable customer service. I stopped by on my way home from work to see if they had wiper blades and they has great PIAA blades. Then they just helped me out with some other problems that I was having with my Beemer and gave me the best service. This place is organized and has employees that really care and want to take great care of you. I will definitely send everyone I know over her. Thanks Guys!!
Once again, the guys at British Auto Center did not fail me. I went there recently to have my car tinted and they did an awesome not only they give me a reasonable price but the work is very professional. I also mentioned that my brake lights are not working and they changed the bulb at not additional charge.
So my Land Rover was starting to give me a hard time starting. I figured it was the battery or alternator, but when I talked to mechanic he inspected my car and quickly realized that the problem was my starter. Anyway It took no more than two hours to have my car looked at and have the starter replaced. Not only was I satisfied with the service, I'll definitely be back here, not for my starter of course.
Steve is a fantastic and very fair mechanic. Land Rovers are high maintenance vehicles and if you own one, you should bring it to British Auto Center Ltd. They has been very fair and understanding regarding my repairs. I own a 2000 Discovery II and have had a lot of work done by British Auto Center Ltd. Never had any complaints of the quality of their work at all. All work has been guaranteed and has been flawless. They know their Land Rovers there to be sure. If you own one of these cars, YOU WILL need repairs. Bring it here and you won't be disappointed. Very reasonable rates, very knowledgeable staff. Fast and very friendly service.
Since I bought my used car I haven't had any A/C. It was my birthday, so I just thought I should give myself a gift by fixing my A/C. I went to British Auto Center where I've been going for several years now, because I know it is affordable and the guys are super helpful and professional. I never had no complaints always happy and was very happy with my A/C they installed. Thanks again British Auto Center!
I came here looking for a specific auto part for one of my cars. I called around a few places in the area and no one had it and I was starting to get desperate! Luckily I found British Auto Center and they had the exact part I needed. They were extremely helpful over the phone and even more friendly when I came in. I'd absolutely recommend them again!
