While the service was good, the recommendations of service sounded and seemed excessive. I was recommended to do a full oil system flush on a car that I had bought from a dealership less than 6 months before. Since I care about the condition of my car and I am NOT a mechanic, I had to blindly follow the tech's recommendations.
I'll start off saying that the customer service was good. Charles was very informative and explained everything great. However, the pricing was completely unreasonable. I had to get a new starter put in my honda which wound up costing me roughly $550, and that was AFTER I talked him down $100. I tried to get him to break down how it was so expensive, and wound up finding out the shop was charging about 170% of retail price for parts. And then when you broke down the labor it was close to $100 an hour. The only reason I got the work done here was cause I had it towed in and it wouldn't start. Otherwise I would've driven elsewhere. It just felt like they forced me to bend over and take it because they knew I was stuck there. I do not recommend this shop.
TL:DR - Service was good, but prices were totally unreasonable. Wound up paying about $200 too much for a simple starter replacement, even after talking the price down $100.
