Great shop because they are transparent with inspection and diagnostic.

by - Verified Customer September 20, 2016

I called asking for a tune up for an oil change, air filter, spark plugs, fluids. Jose said I should do the ULTIMATE SERVICE, so we can also do a diagnostic to see if any other work was needed, and also recommended some engine solution. He said he would top off all fluids. What I got was $400 bill, no tune up, no spark plugs, no air filter, no fluids, empty radiator, radiator cap left off, a $2100 estimate to replace a $30 water pump, and a $1,900 estimate for a brake job. After youtubing water pumps and brake jobs Jose's estimates were 2-4 times more.

Really great service. Jose and Alan are wonderful about explaining things. I trust them implicitly.

by - Verified Customer April 14, 2016

Took too long to diagnose a simple problem (master cylinder failing) when I told them what it was, then they charged me way too much for the time to diagnose and then replace.

Jose and Alan at GIC had a tough problem to diagnose. They found the problem and were able to rebuild the AC system as well as the front trans axle in my Mazda 3. Things are working great now and I should be able to get a lot more miles out of the car.
