They were very thorough with explaining what was wrong with my vehicle.

Very pricey.

Great service.

by - Verified Customer July 07, 2014

They did not align my truck well and I had to put new tires in less than 6 months.

Hi Enrique,

Thank you for bringing your frustrations to my attention. My technicians and I always strive to provide the best possible service to every customer. Can you please provide more information so we can better remedy the issue in the future. For example, did you buy tires from us when you had the alignment? And what occurred to need the tires replaced? As I am sure you know an alignment can not prevent the need for new tires if dry-rot is happening or if the tread was already low at the time of the last alignment. I hope we can provide a better service experience to you in the future.

Thank you,

Professionalism. The team explains potential problems and offers solid solutions. Parts are ordered quickly and they use the highest quality. They keep in touch and are honest about work time and what they are doing/have done. They are experienced and it shows. I moved over 35 miles away and I will continue to take my auto to Gowen's.

I had my car in for service. My wife said the car did not feel right. I had Gowen Automotive Repair investigate. They said that the car was fine, except that it needed a radiator cap ($10). Two days later the car over-heated leaving my wife stranded on I-285. The car sat on the freeway for 45 minutes before AAA can tow it. During that time, the car was stripped of the radio and battery. The thieves tore through the dash board destroying all the knobs and switches in the process. It turns out the radiator and all the hoses was bad. The cap I purchased was also old and degraded. I was very upset.

Reply from Gowen's Automotive Repairs – by GowensAuto December 31, 2014

Dear Edwin,

I am very sorry to hear about everything that happened to your car after it left my shop and am thankful your wife was not hurt during any of the incident involving the thieves. The damage to the radiator cap we sold you most likely occurred when the car overheated. When testing out a cooling system we are unable to test how long a car's hoses will last and can only give recommendations on the last time they were replaced. The reason for this is due to not being able to see inside the hoses as that technology does not yet exist. Thank you, however, for bringing your dissatisfaction to our attention. I strive to always run an honest and dependable auto repair shop and hope to prove this to you now and in the future.

Thank you,
