Verified CustomerNovember 22, 2014

Excellent and honest work at reasonable prices.

Verified CustomerNovember 17, 2014

Gili's is fair priced, and frankly with the "discount" places...you get what you pay for...

Verified CustomerNovember 15, 2014

I feel that they are a very professional organization and I like that they check all the hoses, tires, brakes, batteries, etc. and give me a heads up that something needs to be replaced so I can schedule the expenditure in my budget. I also like the fact that if they replace a part, they show me the part that was replaced.

Verified CustomerNovember 10, 2014

When I moved to Montgomery County a friend recommended Gili's. I took my car and had extensive work done. They were honest, informative about what they had to do, and everything they did was perfect. Everyone was friendly and it was a super clean place. I would use them again.

Verified CustomerNovember 04, 2014

Competent. Fair. Reasonable prices.

I trust them.

Verified CustomerOctober 19, 2014

You have treated me so well and I feel the car is in good hands. I am very secure driving knowing the car has had a good yearly "physical exam." And, most importantly, you are, I believe, honest!

Verified CustomerOctober 15, 2014

I went to get my ABS repaired. The first day, I drop my car off and the guy tells me it should be ready around five, but then calls me when I'm on my way home (I live 30 mins away) to tell me they didn't have the part. I come back to pick my car up because I needed it the next day. One morning wasted. They call me the next day and tell me that the part is in so I drop it off again later that week. Again, he tells me it would be ready around 5, but I told him I wouldn't be able to get out to pick it up until the next morning. The next morning I get a call at around 7:30 saying my car wasn't ready because the part they ordered was defective (later find out they put the WRONG PART in my car). This was a huge hassle because I needed my car for work that day. Also, it was a Friday so they would be closed for the weekend. They said the car would be ready by 3, which was when I had to work. Luckily I was able to borrow my mothers car and my parents helped by picking it up while I was at work. The weekend comes and I'm driving my car again finally. But as I'm going along guess what? ABS light comes back on. Not only that, but it flashes my parking brake light (which was not deployed), and changes my radio function (from AUX to Sat Radio). What the heck? That same night, my battery (which had never had a problem beforehand) seemed to have died on me, but then magically came back to life without a boost or anything. It was almost 60 degrees outside. It just seemed odd. I changed the battery myself and hopefully that will fix everything. I really don't want to take it back to Gili's at this point but I'm afraid they messed something up.

Verified CustomerOctober 06, 2014

We've been taking our cars to Gili's for some time now and are very pleased with the service we've received.

Verified CustomerOctober 03, 2014

Excellent service, a little pricey.

Verified CustomerSeptember 26, 2014

They are competent, reliable, and honest. Not a common combination in the auto repair business.

Verified CustomerSeptember 24, 2014

They did the work requested, in the time provided, at the price estimated, all with a great deal of courtesy.

Verified CustomerJuly 17, 2014

Their work is professional and their customer service is good, but a couple of times I've asked them to look at something they didn't. One was for a water leak that was quite severe and I had to blot it up over and over, when I brought it in for other service they didn't address the problem. Another episode of rain and I had to blot it up again. Brought it back for additional service and again asked them to address the leak. Finally they fixed it. The other time the check engine light came on, but they didn't look at it when I brought it in for other service. Now I have to bring it back in again, specifically to look at the cause for the check engine light.

Verified CustomerJuly 12, 2014

Good service with a smile.

July 02, 2014

Awful service.

Verified CustomerJune 29, 2014

Historically good but last experience was not so good. Replaced 2 seals around cam shafts and both went in wrong and leaked.

Good and fair service.

Verified CustomerJune 14, 2014

In the year or so that I have taken my two cars to Gili's, I have found that they are knowledgeable, competent, fairly priced, and honest. The only negative is a lack of shuttle service or other way to get me to work (or home) when I have to bring a car in. This would make a big difference to many whom I know, so I wouldn't recommend it to them without that warning.

Verified CustomerJune 05, 2014

I have had some good and some not so great experiences with this shop.
