I took my Dodge Grand Caravan into a tire shop to check to see if a tire was separated and walked away from the shop with an estimate for $1200 worth of repairs. I was skeptical about needing the amount of work that was recommended so brought the estimate over to Desert Car Care which is where we have all the maintenance done on our van. They have always proven to be straightforward and honest- so I was curious to see what they had to say about the estimate the tire store gave me.
After a thorough inspection it turns out that a few of the proposed repairs were indeed necessary (new brakes)and showed my why, but the others (new struts and shocks) were entirely unnecessary at this time. I came away from the experience with Desert Car Care knowing that my van received the maintenance it needed, but I knew I wasn't being hustled into any frivolous repairs.
I recommend Desert Car Care to everyone I talk to. They are honest, no nonsense, low key, professional, and always get things done in a timely manner and for a reasonable price. I also love that the explain things to me thoroughly without talking over my head. I always feel good about the experience I've had when I leave the shop, and I will continue to take my cars there for maintenance and repairs.
