Thank you Charlie.

They have been good. They are willing to work with you, get things done, and get you out on the road real quick.

Thank you James

by Verified Customer October 19, 2015

They are quality people. They are very honest. I've had to do some work on the truck myself, so they are very good about explaining things to me. They are usually really nice when you go in, but I can see some people being turned off by how blunt they sometimes are. But I don't think that's negative, I think that it's more language barrier than anything.

Thanks Julie,

by Verified Customer October 16, 2015

I like the quality of the service. I know some of the people there and they are very knowledgeable. They don't make you feel like you have to get other repairs done. It is a pleasure doing business with them.

I think they are very competent mechanics but I think they charge a lot. I think they looked at the book rate rather than assess the actual task. I think I got charged too much. They are expensive.

Thanks for your comments, we do use a labor guide when pricing but we we do adjust up or down if needed. We always give estimates before any work is performed.

They didn't provide my vehicle in the time frame they said they would.

With out knowing your name I can not know the situation. Our goal is to give 100% satisfaction, please call me with your concerns.

by Verified Customer October 02, 2015

I have been 7 cars up there for 11 years, they are very courteous, all of the mechanics take time to talk to you before they do work. I am very satisfied.

Reply from Dinkins Auto Service – by Dinkins Auto November 09, 2015

Thank you for trusting us with all your cars.

by October 02, 2015

I have not had much work done there , I've only had a minor repair done there so I can't say how good they are on a major repair. They replaced my turn signal and I was very satisfied. I like them, they are nice and they are close to me which makes it nice.
