They are well above the Mercedes and BMW people, well above anybody. They really mean what they say. I have no problem. I send everybody to them if I can't do it myself. I'm disabled and can't do anything myself. I send some of my own cars there to. I've been building race cars and high performance cars for over 30 years.
**DO NOT TRUST**
I went to Shifflet Auto Care to have the A/C on my 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe fixed after seeing their 5 star rating on Repair Pal and I got completely ripped off. In May 2013 I had the shop do an evaluation on the A/C and they found that the AC compressor was noisy and had bad plates and erratic pressures. They told me that in order to provide to fix the problem they would have to replace the AC compressor, AC Condenser, replace the Expansion block/valve, and then finally do an AC flush. First of all, just to check the system they charged me $170. Then to fix everything they charged me $970 for the parts and $811 for the labor! They also gave me a 6 month/6K mi warranty. I said that this was pretty steep but if this would ensure my A/C would work I would pay it because I didn't have time to shop around. So after paying a total of $1950, my A/C worked for about 3 months and then stopped working. When I went back there in August 2013 since it was under warranty they said that the AC line from the compressor to the condenser was leaking and crimped together and would cost an additional $485 to fix! I said that since the A/C was under warranty they should fix it for free, however, he said that only the work they did was under warranty and any new problems are not under warranty. When I asked if this was the problem in the first place he said he did not think it was and typically they don't replace hoses first as it is low yield in fixing typical A/C problems. So somehow in 3 months a hose got damaged when all the other parts around it were brand new.
In general, this shop ripped me off, overcharged me like crazy (I got the hose fixed at a different shop for $180) and they misdiagnosed the problem in the first place. Then they didn't admit to the mistake, they stood by their work, and asked for me to 'trust them and their diagnosis.' When I told him $2000 is a lot of money and should really fix any A/C issue regardless.
Absolute rip off. Provided an outrageous $1,500 brake repair estimate and then attempted to charge me $150 for the diagnostics even though they said it would be no charge and nothing in writing, as required by law, reflecting my approval. Went up the street to Auto Doctors and they did the repair for $500. Pathetic business.
