The co-owner greeted me as I entered the office, I had an appointment so I handed my keys over and enjoyed the comfortable atmosphere and friendly technicians as I waited for the brakes to be completed. The owner let me know the status of all four brakes and asked if I wanted all replaced since two still had 50%. I can't remember when I had such a relaxing time while waiting for my car to be serviced. At the end of the service I was give a list of things that needed to be done and it wasn't a surprise since I was told by my general mechanic that these items were to be watched. They also recommended a great reliable place to get a great set of tires. Now that's Great Customer Service.

We LOVE PRK Automotive!!! we brought in our chevy trailblazer with a bad transmission and no AC. They fixed the problems and did an excellent job!!! The transmission works better than before it broke and the AC is COLD!! Thank you PRK!!! Even though we haven't known them for long they seem like family, everyone is soooo nice. I recommend them to everyone!! We have tried others and the service and workmanship just wasn't there, so now that we found PRK we won't use anyone else!!!

I paid for a diagnostic and was told they couldn't find the problem & should take it to a dealership.

Dealership's diagnostic was a failing injector and EGR valve, which were already replaced by PRK Automotive. PRK now adivses I should go take the truck to one "a shop they trust" for yet another diagnostic because they don't believe the one from the dealership.

Now, I'm lying and "reading stuff into" our discussions. At the end of the day, they have no intention of working on my truck and it's MY fault for doing what they told me I needed to do.

Extremely disappointed and out several hundred dollars!

First off the repairs on this vehicle were done over 16 months ago when it had to be towed in because it would not run. He returned last week with a check engine light on asking for diagnostics. After the first hour of diag time to find out why we couldnt communicate with the truck and fixing that issue (a t-tap in a ground circuit for the engine computer from his brake controller) we found 2 codes for electrical circuits for the EGR and injector #5. When talking to the customer he explained that most of the time when the check engine light comes on, he can wiggle wiring under the hood and get the light to turn off. This confirms our diag of possible electric or ground circuit issues. Customer was advised that due to the fact we do not have the proper equipment to diagnose this problem further it would less expensive and he would be better off taking it to a diesel specialty shop or dealer. Customer agreed with us and thanked us for our honesty. We also told him not to worry about the diagnostic charge, he refused and stated he wanted to pay us for the time. We gave the names of several shops in the area we recommend for diesel repairs. He chose to take the truck to the Ford Dealer for the diagnostics. We had discussed with him the need for in depth electrical diagnostics which would be more expensive than a one hour diagnostic and would require approval at the dealer. The dealer gave the customer the same s DTC's as we did here at PRK. We had told the customer that if this truly was the case that the EGR valve was still under warranty but not the injector (replaced 16+ months ago) and that we would do the repair work. Customer agreed and was supposed to bring the truck in today (Monday July 6). He called earlier and stated we would never see his vehicle again and he had found someone else to do the work, he rehashed bits of the prior conversations where he was told he was "reading into things" as his statements where not what I had previously said. Customer had also stated he needed the truck back by Thursday to head up the hill to which he was told we most like would not be able to have it completed in time for his trip as the shop is very busy with other vehicles in the shop and already scheduled. At no time did we ever say we would not work on the truck..

I found these guys through the internet and they did a fantastic job with repairing both front and rear brakes as well as recharging my A/C. The price was fair, the work complete within a short time frame, the staff courteous, the estimate accurate/honest, the price fair, and the location easy to get in and out of. I would highly recommend PRK Automotive to anyone who has an auto repair need.
