Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerMarch 18, 2014

Their prices are fair, I paid nearly double for the same work at another place.

Verified CustomerMarch 15, 2014

I believe they do quality work. They didn't try and pull the wool over your eyes or do any bait and switch. They tell you up-front what the cost is and they do quality work and they are not exactly cheap but compared to anyone else but above all else I have confidence in them and their abilities.

Verified CustomerMarch 13, 2014

They were very nice and professional, fair on price and were able to break the process down and explain it to me.

Verified CustomerMarch 08, 2014

I'm not the type of person to give out a recommendation to random people, I only give them out to people who really need it.

Verified CustomerMarch 04, 2014

The business was good, however the cost to replace the part was abnormally high for both the technical aspect of repairing the part as well as the time to take repairing the part. I called in regards to my vehicle, however they told me they would call me but I had to call to figure out the status of my vehicle.

I was supposed to get a brand new power steering pump and I got a used one. I did not find out until I picked up the car. I paid for a new one but got a used one.

I had trouble with a three quarter ton truck and the DMV, they sent me all over, they tried to get me cleared of smog, and finally they sent me out to El Camino Smog, and Jay I, I think his name was, took on the challenge, and made some phone calls so the paperwork could get done properly. I went to Smog busters, American River Junior College, and there was still a hang-up and then they said I needed a gold service smog place, and that's how I got referred there.

Verified CustomerJanuary 25, 2014

I am just very happy with their service.

Verified CustomerJanuary 23, 2014

They are friendly and nice. They have a clean place. The price is reasonable. They do good work. I like everything they do.

Verified CustomerJanuary 20, 2014

Good service, my Dad uses them and told me to go there. I had an overall good experience. It was just reasonable, the pricing and the time it took for the repair.

Verified CustomerJanuary 15, 2014

They are the only gold shield star location.
