I appreciate that they did the basic oil change but I'm a little irritated that they didn't even check that my check engine light was on.

The staff was professional and courteous. All coupons were honored. The work was done correctly and quickly. A complimentary ride to and from work was provided. Thank you.

I find that Cardinal Plaza Shell respects my time and the technicians/office staff don't talk down to me. That's really all I want. Not being treated like a person is why I stopped going to Ford for my repairs and maintenance work.

I went in for a free a/c check and oil change and they wanted to charge me about $130 just to tell me that I needed a new ac unit. no one told me that it was going to cost me anything. there were 3 different opportunities and personnel that could have told me that. Also, you send out emails and have advertisements for the free a/c checks but still insisted I pay that amount for a diagnostic test. no fluids or anything else was done for the AC except the test. no one would listen to me but they listened to my husband when he came there. I was shocked and saddened because I went there before many times. however, now I will not return.

The big concern I have with Cardinal Plaza Shell is the general push to have the car left there for an extended period of time. I understand it is easier to schedule repairs and services when the car is in the parking lot the entire day. However, keep in mind that not everyone is a two car household. Having to take a taxi or Uber to work increases the price and inconvenience.

by - Verified Customer April 13, 2017

The techs were all very kind and respectful and answered my questions to my satisfaction. The customer service and work repair is great. I will return there to have my car worked on again. Thank you, Linda

I have been with Cardinal Plaza Shell for about 30 years. The story I tell is this. Long ago (+ or - 25 years) I took my car there for a pre-trip inspection and tune up. However, on the road to Michigan the car performed badly - burning enormous amounts of fuel. I called them from Michigan to voice my discontent. I was told to take my car anywhere I wanted there and get it fixed and also bring in my gas receipts and they would reimburse me for all my expenses. I have been dealing with them ever since - any and all service stations can make a mistake, but only a few will unconditionally stand behind their work. Integrity, Fair Prices, Fast Service, Community Minded. CP Shell also runs charitable programs in which they match funds of customer donations to support, wounded military veterans & families, first responders, homeless, the poor and disadvantaged persons. I can count on their repair estimate to be fair and reasonable - they will also tell you when you do not need the repair you thought you did. I am proud to be associated with them.

Nail caused flat tire. CP Shell fixed it immediately, and more importantly, looked at all the tires and helped us understand the wear and aging which could lead to safety issues.

We use Cardinal PLaza shell for all our repair needs. They tell it to ya straight ethnic extras. Love the ride home as well as the drop off of fixed vehicles!

I purchased 4 new Michelins during the November sale. Cardinal had them available and installed them. My one issue is that I found out after the fact that the tires were inflated with nitrogen. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I was not informed about this (I saw it on the invoice after I got home), and I have not been told the benefits of nitrogen, the cost of maintaining nitrogen fill, or the cost of the service if this *free* service was not provided.

Replacement of four tires on sale.

I've been using Cardinal Plaza Shell since I moved into the area 25 years ago. When I can't fix the problem myself, they're always the first place I check to get the work done. Not only do they do great work, if an issue pops up later, they always stand behind their work.

The service was excellent as usual. Everyone in the shop is knowledgeable, courteous and goes out of their way to explain, answer any questions, etc. Service completed as scheduled. The concierge service is great also. Co-operation and comradery among all personnel is obvious. Great place to do business with.

I wanted to get more information on what was wrong with the tire. The second thing was, when I went to get the car, The seat was pushed up right against the wheel and it was a hot day. I hadn't really touched my seat in years and there it was way out of place. I had to push it back. I think they should have tried to keep it in the original location. I know there was nobody that short that it would have been all the way up front like it was.

You should always verify your service is complete as promised with respect to tire rotation.

They were really good at telling me what repairs needed to be done and which ones could wait, which I though was very honest.

It is the only shop we have ever found. We've been in this area since the mid 80s. We are never pressured to buy something we don't need. We are given completely objective feedback if there is an issue as to how much it generally impacts the vehicle and if we have to wait before we have to do something. They are completely fair. We do not ever feel like we are being taken. The car went to go get tires at another location and they gave us a list of things that needed to be done. We did nothing there. We brought the vehicle back to Shell and found out that of the 5 items on the list, 3 of them were genuine. 1 was a warranty item which Shell informed us which the other place didn't. The other 2 items were things that didn't need to be done yet. They would have to be done in the future but not at the time that we were told by the first shop. It's the only place we'll go. We had to bring the car to the dealer for the warranty item and it was very uncomfortable throughout the entire process. We even had to argue to get them to do the warranty items and we never have any problems like that at the Shell.

They are very nice. Their work is fine, it just seems to be pricier than competition.

Speedy service. Customer service was excellent. The guys explain everything in full detail so I can understand it so there were no questions on my part about the calibration report.

We love finding shops that are open on Saturday, but being open on Sunday is almost unheard of. And not only is this shop open seven days a week, they are open until 9pm every day. It doesn't get more convenient than that! At Cardinal Plaza, we found a very dedicated group of technicians who have been together for a long time and have a combined 91 years of experience between them. Three of their five techs are ASE certified and all attend regular training. Cardinal also offers shuttle rides, loaner cars, and the fact that they are a Shell gas station adds a level of convenience you don't see at many shops, earning Cardinal a high score in the Customer Conveniences section of our survey.
