I got charged $1500 for fixing my air conditioning system. The next day in Barstow it stopped working. When I took it back I was told we would work something out. In my experience whenever I dealt with this institution that meant that it would cost me more money. I went to the dealer and they fixed it for $800 and I never had a problem again.

Verified CustomerFebruary 20, 2015

They are professionals and offer the best bang for your buck.
