The customer service and honesty was awesome!

Verified CustomerApril 03, 2014

Awesome place!

April 03, 2014

Good prices and good work, not great at customer service. Also, took a very long time to do an oil change. About 2 hour wait without being informed.

Verified CustomerApril 02, 2014

I trust them, and they add a personal touch, which is important.

It was quick, the price was right and the staff was friendly.

Verified CustomerMarch 24, 2014

I have been a customer at this location for over 5 years and since then I have gone through 2 cars. Every time I have needed services the manager Keri and his staff have always gone above and beyond to find out and problems with my vehicles. The prices are very reasonable.

Verified CustomerMarch 21, 2014

I was told they were short staffed & swamped, and that the wait for my oil change would take an hour and a 1/2. I was fine with that, but my wait ended up being 3 & 1/2 hours! For an oil change! No one bothered to check in with any of us waiting on our vehicles. The only plus side was the low price.

Great service & good people.

Verified CustomerMarch 13, 2014

We used to like them a lot for their oil change service, but we are finding they are getting more and more expensive for repairs.

Verified CustomerMarch 08, 2014

I have been taking cars there for almost 5 years because of the great service and quality of work.

Verified CustomerMarch 08, 2014

I've been going there for almost five years and have always had great service.

Verified CustomerMarch 08, 2014

I never feel like I'm being scammed at Precision. You do what I ask, and in the event something else is needed it serves as recommendation and doesn't feel forced. I would have liked someone to call me once my car work was complete. Perhaps this was an assumption on my part, but when I told the individual checking me in that I'd be walking home I expected them to follow-up with a call. Not a huge deal, just a misunderstanding.

They were efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable. The waiting room was a bit dirty.

Verified CustomerFebruary 11, 2014

I think the work they do is honest and fairly priced.

Verified CustomerFebruary 10, 2014

My car has a factory defect that yet to have a recall. When I took it to Precision Tune I took it for a tune up and oil change, which they provided quickly and efficiently. They also convinced me to let them try and fix the brake issue that many of this model have. They could not fix it before I needed to leave, but when I brought the car back a few hours later, they worked on it until after closing. The manager asked me to bring it back the next time I was in town and let them work on it some more. I brought it back twice more and they labored on it for several hours. I think PTA has done everything possible to try and fix a problem that ultimately will have to fixed by a factory recall.
