Very professional, friendly,and helpful.

by - Verified Customer December 18, 2015

Their automotive wellness focus has me convinced that they care about my safety and they educate me on how to take care of my cars . I'm confident with my wife and daughters car being serviced at Select Automotive their safety and best interest are being addressed.

by - Verified Customer December 17, 2015

Their hourly rates are extremely high, and the owner seems like a really shady person to me. I'm having problems with the bill and what they say I owe them. So I had put a new engine in myself, and then I told them that all I needed was a safety inspection and an exhaust installation. Somehow they blew out the new engine, and I don't even know how they could have done that. So they told me that I need a new engine now, but they should be the ones responsible for either buying a new engine or reimbursing me the money that I had spend on it.

We were pleased. Price wise. We can get in and he's easy to deal with.

by - Verified Customer November 27, 2015

We have had work done with them before and the husband and wife are very nice people. The other day we couldn't afford some of the prices but as far as the service goes, it's good.

by - Verified Customer November 24, 2015

They do good work I feel that they are honest, they don't try to sell you anything you don't need and they seem like good people providing a good service.

by - Verified Customer November 20, 2015

I had an exhaust problem. He did the whole exhaust. I went to take the vehicle to get inspected and the mechanic said I had a slight exhaust leak. I had to take it back. The second time I went, it worked well. I was satisfied with the results when I went back. It was a little unsatisfactory because it was supposed to be fixed the first time.

by - Verified Customer September 29, 2015

I know that they will do quality work, and that the vehicle will be safe before it leaves the shop. The price is a little high, but I think that the peace of mind that the vehicle is going to work is worth it.

by - Verified Customer September 24, 2015

They were very helpful and informative. The one we went to, they squeezed us in.

by - Verified Customer August 28, 2015

I am apprehensive about service in general. They are high on my list, and I don't trust dealerships. It is depended on honesty and how honest I feel about their business practices.

by - Verified Customer August 27, 2015

They has very good, excellent service. They got the work done very well. They got it done fast and efficient.

by - Verified Customer August 20, 2015

They did what they said they would. It's not the cheapest but it's quality work.

They are always fair and honest and do a good job!

by - Verified Customer July 30, 2015

I came away from the last encounter convinced that I had been given correct information and a fair deal. That does not happen very often in the automotive world.

by - Verified Customer June 29, 2015

I've been going to select with two different vehicles now and they've always been extremely helpful and friendly. I will always go to them for my car needs.
