They always do an awesome job!

by - Verified Customer March 26, 2017

All employees in the shop are friendly. I like the fact that you are not lied to in order to get you to pay for more services. My car was repaired in a timely manner as always. When I pick up my car it always runs and sounds better. Everything was explained to me. I called and made an appointment because I was hearing a noise coming from the motor. I explained what I was hearing and was told that I would get a call to let me know what the problem was. They certainly took great care of my cars needs. They will remain my go to car repair shop. And yes; I tell my friends about the service.

We take all of our cars to Broad and James Auto Care. They're very family oriented and there are very trustworthy people who work there. They don't try and get extra money out of you for stuff you don't need. They do a great job fixing everything and they check things you haven't even asked for at no additional cost.

They did a good job. They seemed pretty honest but their prices seemed a little on the high side. They fixed my problems. I have family members that have gone to them and they gave good reviews. They're reliable.

It's because I had it quoted at other places and they were able to finish the work in one day at half the cost. They are a locally owned business and that's probably it.

It's really expensive and everyone I know is poor.

They do a good job at their work and they are very honest and open and take care of what needs to be done. I recommend them to everyone I know. I have done that too.
