They were going to charge over double what other places charged for the same thing.

Reply from Frank's Automotive – by fadjr1963 October 05, 2015

Frank's Automotive has contacted this customer to confirm the two estimates quoted and the work that was performed. Here at Frank's Automotive we always like to give our customer's options. In this case, the first option was to replace the leaking radiator, replace the thermostat due to age (132k miles)and power flush the engine block and heater core to remove debris that normally build up over the life of the vehicle. The second option was to replace the radiator only. We only us top quality parts and top Technicians. Our warranty on this repair would have been lifetime on the radiator and 2 years or 24,000 miles on all other parts and labor. I personally checked the estimate quoted against the Repair Pal price estimator and our estimate was lower than what the estimator said that it should be.

Amount of work recommended and the price of said work seemed high.

Reply from Frank's Automotive – by fadjr1963 October 05, 2015

Steve, We're sorry that you felt like we recommended too much work and that the prices seemed high. Frank's Automotive always offers our customers a free vehicle inspection. We feel that it's part of our job to thoroughly inspect your vehicle whenever it is in our shop. The last thing we want to do is to send one our customers back out on the road with a potential problem, or overdue maintenance that could cause other breakdowns. We document all our technician findings in a report, then call you to see if you would like any of the repairs, or service while the vehicle is in the shop. That report is presented to you when you come to pick up the vehicle. Sometimes these repairs can add up. Our service advisers prioritize the repairs so it is easier for our customers to accommodate the recommended service & repairs into their budget.

They got my car in right away and got it back to me as soon as possible. They honored their warranty. I think that it was a fair market price. The shop is very clean and the people are respectful.

He fixed the problem. He fixed it, but he costs a lot of money. They do a good job though, I give them a 10 on everything.

by - Verified Customer October 29, 2013

They do really good service on our cars and we've never had any problems. Every car we've ever gotten out of the shop we've never had to take back. They're really nice. They do good service. If you bought a car from them and you need a service or something, they do it for free. They're really good on their prices.

I used to do work on my vehicle and I kind of got away from it. The quality that they do is way above compared to other shops around there. His price is comparable. I don't have a problem with it.

They do a really good job. They fixed my car the first time and they do a good job. They're really nice and they help me out really fast, they have really fast service. Sometimes it's a little costly, when they are going to find out what's wrong with the car like computer-wise, it's a little pricey to check what is wrong with your car.

They have good mechanics there. They gave me a reasonable time and stuck to it.

Well, first of all I found them to be prompt, extremely accurate with their diagnosis, and he provided me with a very good quote upfront which is hard for my type of car and the repair required. They're courteous and friendly. They took time to get the parts from out of town, but they kept me posted on when things were going to arrive. They even called and apologized since they were going to be late, but I appreciate that they kept me posted. I found them to be courteous and they just kept me informed.

by October 14, 2013

I trust Andy that will give an honest accessment of the repairs needed.
