I think they are very professional. They go out of their way to do the best job for you. They are very communicative about the job they are doing and why. They are experts at what they do. They don't claim to do things they don't know how to do. They won't tell you they can fix something if they can't. They are expensive, but they are fair. I don't recommend many car shops, but these guys are great.
I have been going to the Car Doctor since I started driving (that was 30 years ago!). My parents took their Hondas before me. And although I was sad to see the management change over each time (3 times over that period), I still feel confident in the quality of service and the personal attention I have received.
For Japanese manufactured cars, the Car Doctor in Merrifield, VA is the only independent shop to consider. Their staff is friendly, helpful and honest. They are eager and willing to explain all repairs and will only repair if they foresee potential problems before next servicing. We have driven our cars for 150k miles, and the Car Doctor has been the reason why we were able to attain such mileage. Of course, regular servicings are the secret to auto longevity, but we would never take our cars any other place. They will also refer out to other reputable specialized shops for say, transmission work, and we have been pleased with their referrals.
I felt that they changed ownership. I felt the man who serviced my car was deceptive. He tried to up sell me products I did not need. He also installed spark plugs that were not recommended for my cars make and model. I had a friend who is also a mechanic look at my car and he told me I got ripped off.
I had an oil leak. Ended up seizing my engine. Then they charged me an arm and leg to remove my stereo. I hate to say it, but if I had been going to a dealer, the dealer would have told me about the leak. I got to find out about 5 minutes before the engine seized that the car was low on oil. Had been going to them religiously for 5 years. They should have recognized the leak any of the countless times I had been there.
