Outstanding service!

by Verified Customer January 18, 2015

Great knowledge and service.

by January 15, 2015

Slow somewhat unorganized service. Suggested repairs were a bit premature.

Reply from Carmine's Import Service – by ccupani February 04, 2015

Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback. We always appreciate it, that is how we learn and grow. I remember your situation and yes it was not the norm due to the trouble we did have with our vendor and shipping at the post office. However you are right and the buck stops with us so we take full responsibility. As far as the repairs that were suggested we recommended diagnosing your diesel fuel line because it was pouring fluid. Feel free to call us with any questions or concerns which you may have. Thank you for your business.

To expensive.

Reply from Carmine's Import Service – by ccupani February 04, 2015

I am sorry you felt as if our service was too expensive. We do offer a 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty on most parts and labor which is the best in the Triad. If you were able to get a better price somewhere else for the same service feel free to provide us with an estimate you had received and we will look it over. If it matches the service we recommended along with the warranty we offer, we would be more than happy to match and/or beat it. Thank you for the review.

by Verified Customer December 10, 2014

Pricing is the same as the dealer, repair time is quite long. Carmine's will recommend lots of additional work to bump up the ticket.

Reply from Carmine's Import Service – by ccupani February 04, 2015

Thank you for your review. The following took place with your 2003 BMW M3. CUSTOMER STATES THAT VEHICLE IS MISSING AND HAS ENGINE CODES. OUR TECHNICIAN FOUND THAT #4 INJECTOR IS FAULTY. WE RECOMMENDED PERFORMING VALVE ADJUSTMENT, REPLACING ALL INJECTORS, ALL COILS, AND ALL PLUGS. ALSO RECOMMENDED PERFORMING A FUEL/AIR INDUCTION/PLENUM SERVICE TO CLEAN CARBON FROM INTAKE VALVES. ALSO RECOMMENDED AN OIL SERVICE SINCE OIL CAN BE CONTAMINATED WITH FUEL FROM ENGINE MISIFIRING AS PRE-CAUTION. WITH YOUR PERMISSION WE REPLACED 6 FUEL INJECTORS AND 6 SEALS. I am sorry you felt our price was the same as the dealer. We will always beat the dealer's price for the same work and with the same warranty we offer (3 year / 36,000 mile). Please contact us if you have any concerns. Safe Driving.

by Verified Customer December 01, 2014

Service took too long. Getting updates and information was not timely and efficient.

Reply from Carmine's Import Service – by ccupani February 04, 2015

Thank you for the review, while your vehicle did take longer than normal to service, understand that parts for a 1997 Jaguar XJ-6 are not easy to get. We had to order door handle rods and they had to come from overseas since that is not a normal stock item for a car of your year and make. You are correct though, our updates and information should have been more prompt and we will strive for that in the future. Let us know if you have any concerns or questions. Thank you for your business.

Volvo was serviced twice within 2-3 month period. So far I can say Carmine's quality service and rapid service have been great. Courteous, friendly crew.

by Verified Customer September 25, 2014

Great work.

by Verified Customer September 25, 2014

Carmine's is my big town go to in my small town! Great owner, staff and service! This trip was for wax and detail and my 98 Mercedes 300SD looks brand new. I have been with Carmine since before I purchased this fine car. They checked it out - I bought it and they have restored it from the get go! The best!!

by Verified Customer September 16, 2014

The staff at Carmine's are very professional, courteous, and friendly. They had everything done in a timely manner and their place of business was very clean, laid back, inviting and also family friendly!! I will definitely go there again for my automobile services!!

by Verified Customer July 14, 2014

I have been impressed with their attention to detail and professionalism. I also like their follow-up.

The original service I had done was not done correctly, the car began leaking coolant on the way home from the shop (5mi) I had to bring it back and was told it needed additional repairs which cost me a lot more money!

Reply from Carmine's Import Service – by ccupani February 04, 2015

Thank you for the review. Your 1990 BMW 325 originally came in for a free BMW Track Inspection. We recommended a power steering flush do to the age and condition of the fluid. With your permission we performed the power steering service. It turned out that you had to come back due to a leaking thermostat and coolant hose which were not leaking at the time of the track inspection. If they were leaking at the time of inspection your vehicle would have not passed. We thank you for your review. Please contact us with any concerns/questions which you may have.

It's been a very good experience, and they have always been very cordial and helpful.

by Verified Customer March 02, 2012

They are very, very great there. They accommodate you 100 percent. If you need a ride from anywhere, they pick you up. They will bring you back. They bring you a car if need be. They never leave you stranded. They are nice and family owned as an operation.

by Verified Customer March 01, 2012

I have been a client of theirs for probably over ten years, and they will tell you about potential repairs, but they will give you a window, and tell you, this is isn't something that needs to be done today, where a typical shop will tell you its got to be done now. It's totally honest. In ten years they have always been truthful with me. That is an extremely good trait. I have total trust in them because of that. I trust them implicitly.

by Verified Customer February 29, 2012

I didn't take my car to another dealer, or somewhere else to get another price. I felt it was a little high.

Reply from Carmine's Import Service – by ccupani February 04, 2015

Thank you for the review. Always feel free to get another estimate. If another shop and/or dealer can match our price and warranty for the same service we recommended we will match or beat it. Feel free to contact us with any concerns you may have. Safe driving.

It was a good experience, they have good people, and I would return to them again.

by Verified Customer February 23, 2012

I really appreciate Brian keeping up with letting you know what's up, or what's going on, and just keeping you in the loop about your vehicle. I bought a vehicle that was not licensed, and it needed several repairs to get plates for it and it took a lot of work and a lot of hard time. Brian really kept me in the loop about everything that was going on. I really appreciated that.

by Verified Customer February 10, 2012

They are great. They do the work . They are on time. They are reasonably priced. You can't beat them.
