Great service but a little pricey.

March 21, 2011

Quoted $650.00 for a front and rear brake job. Can't make a comment on anything but the price which is way too high. That price = one lost customer.

February 18, 2011

I took my car in to look into a rattling under the car. I dropped my car off in the morning and was thrilled that they found the issue and repaired my car by lunchtime. The price was far less then I expected. I'll definitely be going back there again.

February 15, 2011

Had my car in last week. Very fast service and great price. They had to order a part and it was still done very quickly. They told me what needed to be done before doing work and they even let me know what didn't need to be done yet. Everyone was professional and polite.

I could not believe it when my car broken down in Delaware while visiting for the holidays. I needed to get on the road as soon as possible. A local friend told me to bring it to Maiers, because they had been very pleased with the work they'd had done to their own vehicle there. I contacted the shop, and after telling them my situation, I was amazed by how nice, and accomodating they were. My car was towed to their shop, and within no time the car had been diagnosed. I was given a quote for the total repair, and by the next afternoon I was able to pick my car up. The price was reasonable for the work that was done, and I traveled home with no further problems whatsoever. Do not hesitate to go to Maiers ! I'm so glad I did.

Dropped car off for regular 60K mile service. Car was in complete working order prior to service and I had always taken vehicle to dealer up to this point. After hearing that they competed with dealer prices I thought I would give them a try. WRONG CHOICE!! I made my appointment a week in advance. They lost that appointment. When car was dropped off the day before, I was told it would only take one day( repair pal says this shop prides itself on one day service). They did not complete my car for 3 days. When I did finally get it back, the car lock/alarm no longer worked. I brought the car back to inform them that something must have been disconnected when work was done on vehicle. They argued with me and amoungst themselves claiming they didn't disconnect anything. Again car was in complete working order prior to this shop touching it. $900 dollars later my car doors can't lock without alarm going off and I have to take it to the Dealer to have them fix it. As a single female I feel taken advantage of and will never use this shop again. Ill pay the extra money to dealer to avoid this kind of aggravation and have vehicle work done right.

Reply from Maier's Shell Service – Mike MaierDecember 27, 2010

Car got delayed due to a part not in stock and an extremely busy pre Christmas week. Work went well and we were not aware of an alarm problem. We will do everything we can to remedy this problem if given the opportunity.

February 16, 2010

My car was making a funny noise, I pulled in Maier's because they are close to home. Everyone there was very kind and curtious. They had my car finished the same day. Everything was great. I only take my car to Maier's after that wonderful experience. It's good knowing that honest auto techs still exist.
