The last time we went in there was a noise that was in the car that was not there when we took it in. They were not able to find the reason for the noise. It took two trips.

Central goes above and beyond, and every time we need service and we can't get to the shop they will come and pick our car up at a competitive price. If there is a problem after the service they will stand behind their work.

Central Avenue Automotive is the best shop I have ever dealt with. Before finding them I was always hesitant to get any work done on my cars and always felt like I was being duped. Not at Central Avenue I have always been treated fairly and with great customer service.

Keep up the great work Central!!
