Customer Reviews

April 02, 2010

Went to South Central for a tune-up which was fine. However, they stated that my tie-rods needed to be replaced (amongst other "necessary" repairs). Went to my regular mechanic and he told me that they were fine and that the other "necessary" repairs were only a result of South Central's upselling. I drove another 2.5 years before my mechanic recommended I fix the tie-rods. Just a lesson never to trust someone, especially a mechanic you don't know. Additionally, the price I paid (over 2.5 years later) was almost $150 less than what South Central quoted me. When I called South Central telling them I could get the same repair done for $150 less, they told me that they don't negotiate on price and that my mechanic was probably substandard. I recommend that anyone going to South Central look around first and be very wary of what you are quoted.

We were sent here on a referral and they did not disappoint us, they are honest and do quality work, without trying to add on alot of repairs that weren't needed.

I have used them twice and found them to be easy to work with, reasonably priced, and the work was completely reliable!
