Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerFebruary 14, 2013

If all shops were like Potomac and were as good, there would not be any use going to a dealer where they over charge and make you wait all day to get something done.

February 07, 2013

The employees went above and beyond. They were extremely helpful and informative.

Verified CustomerFebruary 02, 2013

Verified CustomerJanuary 18, 2013

Very honest and fair. I recommend them to all our friends and family with no complaints. We had a situation where the repair was free just because they had to tweak something. I would only go to them.

January 18, 2013

When my car suddenly broke down, they took me without an appointment and given the degree of service, gave me a break on the labor. I took my wifes car back the following week for a routine service and their price came in under the dealer service price! Work on both cars was great!

Verified CustomerJanuary 17, 2013

The staff is always friendly and accommodating. They also make suggestions and give me options on repairs without pressure .

Verified CustomerJanuary 11, 2013

The first time I've ever been to a mechanic and it didn't feel like I got ripped off. They explained stuff to me. They were very very fair. They definitely didn't tell me that I needed extra work when I didn't. I had gone to a shop right before I went to them who had $1600 of work that they said that I needed, which I didn't.

Verified CustomerJanuary 10, 2013

Very professional and courteous service

Fine service. I would recommend them to anyone.

December 29, 2012

I am one of Potomac Creek's original customers ever since they opened over 20 years ago. Up until then, I had taken my car to many other repair shops and found most of them to be very dishonest. Because I am a woman, they would treat me like I didn't understand what they were saying and would recommend unneeded repairs. Potomac Creek has always been honest and respectful. If repairs are expensive, they will recommend which repairs are needed right away, and which ones can wait a little while. I've always been able to get my car in when needed. Customer service is great - all the staff is very friendly and professional. I'm so glad I found them!

December 27, 2012

They do very good work I have been going here for almost two years.

I have been going to Potomac Creek Automotive almost since they opened years ago.

I have used this garage ever since they opened and continue to do so because they have always provided satisfactory work and do it in a cordial manner.
