I am an elderly lady. Not old, but elderly, and they gave me a ride and picked me up when my car was done. They tell me exactly what it's going to cost before they do anything.

Took my son's 2005 GTI to Certified to have a clutch replaced. The shop is clean, the service is prompt and friendly and the repair was done right the first time. I was informed all along the way when there were problems and Herb was more than happy to explain what they were doing and why. We are very happy with the service provided at Certified Auto Specialits.

I went to Certified Auto Specialists because of a starter problem. My car wouldn't start when it was hot. It was also misfiring; a previous mechanic couldn't fix it. I took my car in after going somewhere else and getting charged $300 for basically cleaning wires. It was an emergency, so I paid. Jeff helped me, and diagnosed my problem. It was the starter. They replaced my starter, connecting cables, and fuel injector for the misfiring problem.

I am filing a small claims lawsuit against the previous auto shop, and the people at Certified helped greatly. They let me keep the cables, gave me a detailed invoice, and took pictures of the starter. They even took me home because I couldn't rent a car!

Customer service is through the roof! They really made me feel comfortable and at ease with my car!

Quality of work is unsurpassed! I will never go anywhere else! They have a standard 2 year/24,000 mile warranty. My car is running wonderfully now, and I haven't had problems starting it!

AAA 10% discount!!!

March 09, 2009

I would rate this repair facility as very good! This was my first visit, so this should be considered as an initial assessment of Certified Automotive Specialist. With that being said, the staff were very polite, friendly, and professional. I had the radiator replaced on my 1986 F-150 pickup. I was offered a standard and an extended warranty on the replacement part, and the repair actually came in under the estimated repair time. The facility was clean and well maintained. I also liked the 10% discount for AAA members, which I am. The price was comparable to most of the other repair shops I have had dealings with. I’m very likely to continue using them for my auto repair needs.

It has now been about a year and a half since I began using Certified Automotive Specialists and I am very pleased with the service I receive. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and professional. Customer service is number one with them and their prices are comparable with other automotive repair facilities. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good automotive maintenance facility. I know you won't be disappointed!
