I had a oil change. The only problem I experienced is that they did not reset it so the light for check engine came on again. It was for the oil change and now in the future I know how to reset it. I brought it back and they fixed it and showed me how to do it. I just hope I remember since I get a oil change every 5,000 miles so it is going to be a couple of months. Overall it was a good experience. I will return.

by - Verified Customer December 14, 2016

I used to go to Precision Tune Auto Care regularly as I would rather not change the oil in my car myself and I was super busy and didn't mind paying for a cheaper oil change. Needless to say, Precision Tune Auto Care on Hwy 54 has gone down in quality.

My first negative experience was when I figured out my AC had a leak. I asked them to just check where the leak may be and they ended up filling up my car with freon on top of that. A gentleman in front of me paid for a lower priced AC test and I inquired why mine was more expensive as I picked up my car. The cashier stated it's because they put freon in my car when I told them I recently put freon and I can do that myself (My guess is because I'm a girl they can just upcharge me and add services I did not request).

Another time I had an inspection and they wanted to charge me $14 labor for installing a license plate light cover. Well...that is also a very simple fix I could do myself and I requested to just have the part and I would do it myself. Also something to note, the newer skinnier cashier lady is rude, always on her phone, and presumptuous.

The final straw is when I got an oil change before a long trip. I waited for an hour during the weekday for my oil to be changed. They put a sticker that I had to get my oil changed once it hit 338K miles...well...my car isn't even at 120k miles. Later on when I went to fill my washer fluid, I found that my hood release was broken and know that I did not strong arm the lever since there were no pieces and I could clearly see where there was a broken part missing.

Now today, I'm changing my oil in my car myself and looked at the filter which is a Tec Select T500 filter that is much smaller than the models that fit my car.

Please work on customer service and integrity.

by - Verified Customer January 13, 2017

Been going there for years....and plan to continue. Good group of guys!

by - Verified Customer January 27, 2017

Usually entire experience is top notch (I've been getting multiple vehicles serviced there for about ten years). But this time I have question with regards to the type of new oil used; also i'm not sure if new oil filter was installed; and appears there was a small overcharge that I will address when I'm back from trip. That said the mechanics and managers are great guys, always friendly and most informative, and really work with customers. GREAT guys. Just a few minor things this time.

by - Verified Customer January 20, 2017

The first time that I went to Precision Tune, I was nervous because I was new to the area. Now, I will not go to any other business or location. I love their service!

Had 24.99 coupon for a premium oil change that included 5 qts and oil filter. Still charged separately for oil filter! I always pay for the extra quart of oil my car takes. But my 24.99 coupon ended up being a 39.00 oil change. So really there was no deal. Could've gone anywhere else for a forty dollar oil change.

by - Verified Customer December 25, 2016

I started using this Precision Tune location because it was within walking distance for me. Even though I moved about a half hour away, I continue to take me car there because of their great work and customer service. Also, they are very honest in what needs to be done and the pricing is fair.

by - Verified Customer December 26, 2016

Marty and crew are always great, ethical, and respectful.

by - Verified Customer December 20, 2016

I've been dealing with this shop for about 20 years and I've recommended them to a number coworkers and others. They treat you more than fairly, and they are very skilled and knowledgeable.

I thoroughly enjoy the services are received. The technician provided me with clear explanation of what was going on with my vehicle. I had such a great experience I will never go to another shop other than Precision Tune.

The manager and mechanic that worked on my car were excellent. I used to do all the work on my car, but I am now 55. I was told I needed new brakes, they checked and no. I really enjoy the moral character and work ethic at this shop. They are very honest and fair in their work, which is very refreshing compared to other shops that I have been to. I strongly recommend this car repair shop. Thanks a very satisfied customer!!

I have always had great experiences with this shop. I am female, but Marty always explains things to me and I never feel pressure to purchase anything unnecessarily. They always give me the price of the repair and get my approval before any work is done.

No problems.

by - Verified Customer November 09, 2016

Every one working in this shop is efficient and friendly. I never feel as though I'm being sold unnecessary repairs or treated differently because I'm a woman. I go out of my way to go to the Precision Tune on Hey 54 because the owners/managers have integrity.

They had my car for a week and inaccurately diagnosed my problem, they said I had two catalytic converters that were bad but the problem turned out to be cracked resonators.

by December 23, 2013

I went to get a diagnostic test and waited a long time to get it done. They estimated it would take $4000 to repair my car. They charged me $200 for the test. When I got home they called to say they would buy the car for $200 and then I would not owe anything. I thought that was not very professional. I took my car somewhere else and they fixed the car for much less. It is running good.
