The shop did a great job repairing what need to be done in a timely manner.
Great service, excellent work.
Good service. I have never had a breakdown with my vehicle since coming to Certified Automotive and am confident in continuing to drive my vehicle for many more years even though it is over 13 years old.
Great customer service! Everyone was super nice! I'll be returning for sure.
All was good.
Faced a number of problems with a car that has 250,000 miles and they were very helpful in evaluating the value of the car vs the costs for repairs.
Everything was just fine.
Extensive work completed beyond the reason the car needed service. Thorough service completed after I gave ok to my satisfaction. Associate listened to my concerns and provided necessary work.
These gentlemen have always done a good job for me.
They are much better than going to a dealer for repairs, They were not able to find the problem with the vehicle. They did there very best to find it.
Everything was done in a fair and timely manner.
Certified Auto replaced my valve cover gasket because oil was leaking. Not long afterward, I noticed more oil leaking and it was diagnosed as a different problem.
Great experience with all aspects of service. I had to coordinate the repair while out of town. They're a very professional business and I highly recommend them to others.
They always do a great job with our car!
They can always get me in quickly and get the repairs done when I need them. I really have come to rely upon them for my car needs.
The fellas up front are always friendly and courteous. Peter is a great mechanic.
Relatively good. I thought that they would get to my car earlier but I picked it up quicker than the deadline I had set. I am going back to this facility for additional service.
Took a little longer than needed but it was fixed. It was on the high end but good work isn't cheap.
They tried to do what was the most inexpensive, but the real issue was something more complex than what I was originally told. There was no way to know before hand so I ended up paying a fair price for repairs that were only scratching the surface of what was really wrong with my vehicle.
20+ year customer. They have always been great!
I trust Certified Automotive. Great customer service and outstanding mechanics!
Nice people, performed well and on time. I'll be back.
My experience was good. I had a fix that required a little extra problem solving and the people were willing to take a little extra time and help figure out a solution that solved the problem without an overly expensive fix. Thanks so much.
Very helpful folks!
Knowledge and able people. I will use them again.
Oil change took a little longer than planned because of a delay of getting the oil filter from Napa. Without me saying anything I was apologized to and given a discount on my next service. Great staff!!
Amazing customer service.
I have had my vehicle serviced by Certified for the past 4 years. Service is great and prices are honest and fair.
Very good service with fair and reasonable pricing.
I found Certified Automotive to thorough, fast and affordable! Extremely satisfied to finally have a mechanic of my own!
We felt the service was prompt and friendly. Our car is working fine and you didn't suggest unneeded repairs.
We needed a new motor on the drivers side window. Certified was able to get us in and get it fixed in their usual timely manner.
Found the problem with my Dodge Diesel truck quickly and did the repairs necessary. The staff is friendly and honest.
Excellent service, they even cleaned my car and told me what I had to have done on next visit.
I hope the quality of work remains the same as when Randy and Gene were there. It has so far, so please try to deliver the same quality of work along with the honesty that Randy and Gene were known for.
The personnel are always courteous and well informed. They never perform more work than is necessary to fix the problem and their courtesy check is an excellent way to get a heads up on potential problems down the road.
Great service at the shop! Experienced automotive repair people. Great nationwide warranty :-)
I can trust them to only do the work that is needed for my car. They recommend service that is beyond the factory recommendation, making my car more reliable and extending the life of the power train.
Fast courteous service, work well done.
Great / honest work
Great service, they were able to tell us things that weren't done correctly at Jiffy Lube that were causing us issues.
The work was done right and quickly. They gave me the information and cost up front.
Opportunity to receive reliable complete service.
I would recommend them.
They were very helpful and performed the work as agreed. Everything turn out great
I think they are very competent, and I have recommended service to friends.
The folks as Certified Automotive have always given us great service at fair prices for decades.
AC not fixed.
Janice, if your AC is not working properly please let us have a look at it to determine what the problem is. All repairs carry a warranty. Keith
Honest, experienced staff.
Thorough. Honest. Fair.
I always feel that I'm dealing with knowledgeable and experienced people. The work done has been consistently of high quality and reasonably priced. And I am always confident that I'm getting a square deal from people who know what they're talking about -- I trust them implicitly.
They are thorough and fair-priced, while doing a good job.
Good customer service.
I felt they did a good job.
They have been taking care of our automobiles for years, always with superior results.
They are efficient, reliable, honest, and trustworthy, and have been taking care of my car since 2007......if need be, I would venture to say that my car can outrun any hot rod car out there!
They were not able to fix my car and still charged me $330 for diagnostics- they had my car for a week. I told them the complete history on my car and asked to check the catalytic converter. They responded that the catalytic converter could not cause the check engine light to be on and did not check it. After they failed to fix it I took my car to Cherry Automotive and asked them to check the catalytic converter. It was the problem and they had it fixed in 1 day- check engine light has stayed off. I will never go back there and will not let any of my family of friends either.
Since I don't have a name so that I can look up the history my only response is that no one at our shop would ever say a catalytic converter could not make a check engine light come on.
Always good service.
Very satisfied with the service.
I was disapointed when I my wife was told that a noise associated with our rear brake after replacement of rear end bearings. You required dismantling the brake assembley to replace the rear end bearings and when you dont get all the parts in correctley you indicated it was not covered. We protested and you took care of the issue.
Ken, I'm glad we were able to take care of the issue to your satisfaction. Keith
The price of repairs has drastically increased in the past couple of years. It's rather disappointing.
I agree the cost of parts, labor, taxes and insurance have increased the past few years which makes it impossible to operate a business at yesterdays prices. We appreciate being your auto repair shop. Keith
I have had exceptional service every time. All are kind and helpful. They even let me walk in to the shop and look at the work they are performing. A+
There is always room for improvement in one way or another.
Nice people. Good value for the price. They take time to explain what the options are. I feel that they are honest and want the best for their customers.
