Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerJune 04, 2014

They provided the exact service we requested and didn't expand on it, they didn't request more work to be done. They are also very honest.

Verified CustomerJune 02, 2014

They seemed to know my car and that's all I'm interested in. They know what to do and how to do it. Their prices are reasonable and they do their repairs in a reasonable amount of time.

Verified CustomerMay 30, 2014

It is extremely hard to find the aftermarket tires for my car, every shop I called didn't have any but I called Christie's and they had them readily available.

Verified CustomerMay 22, 2014

They do a great job and we have another car we're going to bring to them.

Verified CustomerMay 21, 2014

I went in to talk to them and they fixed me right up, they did me right, I was in and out in 30 minutes. I broke 2 tires on my trailer, went in and was out quickly.

Verified CustomerMay 17, 2014

They don't really have good customer service, the people working there don't have very good people skills. It seems that they have some off the wall people working there.

Verified CustomerMay 16, 2014

My husband and I both had cars that were dead in the water. We took it there and they took care of it right away. Their towing service is very convenient.

Verified CustomerMay 13, 2014

Incomplete knowledge of what was wrong, and their inability to find and repair the issues at hand.

Verified CustomerMay 07, 2014

I got a good deal on an oil change for my car credit. They were quick with the work.

April 30, 2014

They didn't do very well, the first time we went to them.

They are really nice and affordable, their prices are lower than other shops.

Verified CustomerMarch 31, 2014

They were very friendly and got me in quick.

Verified CustomerMarch 04, 2014

They gave me correct service. Another garage told me it would cost 2800 dollars. I took it to Christie's and they fixed it for 280 dollars. They were honest.

Verified CustomerMarch 03, 2014

They did a really good job with the repairs on my car, and they also issued warranties for the repairs, I was also referred by my dad.

Verified CustomerFebruary 26, 2014

I went in to get my tires aligned. I had to take it back three times and they still didn't get them aligned correctly.

I'm from out of town and I lost my phone in the car and they drove all the way back to give me phone. They were very thorough and they gave me good service.

Verified CustomerFebruary 17, 2014

They just know what they are doing.

Verified CustomerJanuary 23, 2014

I know them personally and I used to work for them.

Verified CustomerDecember 30, 2013

It was the second time we've used them. They did what they said they were going to do, charged reasonable rates, diagnosed the problem properly, informed us and then road tested it before they would give us the car back. Just a group of very nice people, Gary especially and John from the tow truck, they were nice from the first time we were in. They were prompt and very nice and laid my fears to rest about where we were going.

Verified CustomerDecember 30, 2013

They said I had a hose leaking and they charged me for the hose. Then they said it wasn't the hose, it was the water pump. It cost me an extra 500 dollars. They should have diagnosed it right the first time.

It has only been two weeks since I had the service done. So far so good.

Verified CustomerDecember 23, 2013

His service is quick they got me in and out me out right away. I had a flat tire, he looked at it and had it in stock and in 15 to 20 minutes the tire was back on.

December 21, 2013

I didn't get the exact price for the repairs, and they asked me to bring it back after three days for insurance purposes.

Verified CustomerDecember 20, 2013

They did the job right and the customer service was good. It took less than an hour.

Verified CustomerDecember 20, 2013

I think they do a pretty good job, and the price is fair so you know it's a reasonable priced. They're very friendly, and the service was good as well. They got the car done in a timely manner.

Verified CustomerDecember 19, 2013

They replaced a starter which was standard work but it seemed very overpriced. Five days later on Christmas morning the starter went out and I had to be towed in to have it replaced. I was satisfied with the service but the part was bad that they put in where it went out in just five days. They were very pleasant and easy to work with.

Verified CustomerDecember 18, 2013

They are all professional and have timely service.

Verified CustomerDecember 14, 2013

They billed me cheaper then they quoted me.

Verified CustomerDecember 12, 2013

There were very good and fast. Our car broke down and they picked us up.

November 18, 2013

I had my car towed over there. I asked them to let me know what was wrong and what the charges would be. The antifreeze was leaking and they put some in. It drained all out. They overcharged for a fuel pump. They did things that did not need to be done. The bill should have been small but ended up being $600 and the car was still not fixed. I asked them the bring the car back to me and they said they could not. I got someone to get my car back to me. I found someone else to fix my car. They came and picked it up and returned it to me. They said a part had been put on wrong and that is why the antifreeze drained out. There were some fuses blown and they did not understand how that could have happened. They fixed what needed to be done to have the car run well. It was only $80. They also washed my car inside and out.

November 07, 2013

They did what I needed and quickly.

Verified CustomerNovember 06, 2013

I took my truck to a different place to get something fixed and it broke and cost me 700 dollars, so then I went to Christies and it only cost me 75 dollars, they do quality work. The first time I went there I had a part that broke and would have cost me 4,000 dollars, but they re-welded the part and only charged me 600 dollars.

October 31, 2013

I am not happy. They did not do what they said they were going to do. It took a long time to get the work done that they did. I had to go somewhere else to have the work done that was needed.

I have had that work done in North Carolina at a Napa, and when I got to Florida I had the same work done and it was done correctly.

Verified CustomerOctober 23, 2013

They were very good and helped me with everything. He showed me everything he was doing.

Verified CustomerOctober 21, 2013

I've been there twice and they have been excellent, with good prices, trustworthy and they are the only place I will go.

Verified CustomerOctober 11, 2013

They were extremely knowledgeable about my car and how to fix it, they are very customer oriented, they know how to explain how to go through a finance company if I ever need to.

Verified CustomerOctober 10, 2013

I'm very satisfied with the services and the timely manner in which it was done. Their professionalism and the fact they are just around the corner is great.

They did what they were supposed to do in a timely manner.

September 26, 2013

They screwed me out of two thousand dollars and I got fired because they told me my car was going to be fixed in three days and it took three weeks. My car is still broken and they won't fix it even though it's their fault. There's too much to say, I could talk for hours on all the things they screwed up.

Verified CustomerSeptember 25, 2013

They were quick and friendly and I was pleased with their service.

Verified CustomerSeptember 10, 2013

The service is very good, the machine they use for alignment wasn't working when I went in so they told me to come back to do the alignment.

June 06, 2015

Took my truck in because it wouldn't start which I knew probably had to do with alarm. After a month and three weeks later and over $1500 they said it was done. They told me the keys couldn't be programmed and just gave me a key to start truck. Well it drove fine home but once you lock the doors the alarms arms itself and no key will turn it off. The refuse to finish the job so now I have to find someone else and sue them. Lot more things wrong but would go on all day. Can't imagine why people can't find good mechanics when you have crooks like this.
