I've had great service there.

Verified CustomerAugust 17, 2015

Service was great, fast and friendly!

Verified CustomerAugust 17, 2015

The day before a planned trip to Eastern Washington, we noticed a trail of coolant on the garage floor. We called Sparks (our preferred shop) and they said they could make time to get it in right away. They were true to their word and also did an A/C filter change at the same time. They have always been helpful and courteous, and I have recommended them to several family and friends in the past.

The staff are friendly. The Reception and Service area are organized and clean. Service was provided in a timely manner. I received an e-mail later the same day about the work they'd done. The women in the office are as informed as the men are.

It seems the service was done well. I didn't feel they tried to gouge me by trying to get me to do service that I really didn't need yet.

I believe Sparks Car Care, the employees and management team do the right thing for their customers.

Verified CustomerJune 03, 2015

I went in for a 2nd opinion on if i needed a timing belt/timing chain other than that no work was really needed however Marcello took care of me made me feel comfortable & he felt he had the best intentions for me & my car. I understand however he's no longer employed at that establishment.

Verified CustomerMay 20, 2015

I dropped off my car after hours and wrote on the slip I thought it was the alternator. They charged me around $130 to do a diagnosis and then told me it was the battery. I think I paid around $300 for the battery and the “diagnosis”. After about three weeks, the same problem occurred. I brought it back and they said it was the alternator and it would cost about $500+ to fix. I told them I would do it myself. I did it in about 1 hour for about $110.

Verified CustomerMay 15, 2015

Staff is always friendly and helpful. Ken shows that he cares that his customers are 100% satisfied.

Sparks has maintained and repaired my family's vehicles for more than a decade. We keep going back because we trust their work. They are professional, knowledgeable and fair. The owner is a man of integrity who serves his community and cares about his customers. I highly recommend Sparks Car Care.

I brought my FJ Cruiser down for 60k scheduled maintenance. This is my first visit, but will not be my last. I will tell you why I will be back there for the next oil change.

Speed: Work completed in a better-than-reasonable time. My service was done in about 3 hours or so. I've spent 1.5hrs at a dealership for a simple oil change on multiple occasions in different locations!

Cost: Based on RepairPal's quote, this shop is at a very low end for price. They manage this while providing a very professional (clean and environmentally conscious) shop. If you are skeptical then just call or email them for a quote, what is the worst than can happen?

Service: I started getting my appointment/quote with email using their website. I had quick responses which contained useful information and accurate quotes.

My service was done thoroughly, quickly, and for a good price. They have all been quite knowledgeable and friendly. They let me know things that don't need to be done just as much as what does (especially good because I tend to over-maintain).

Give them a shot: don't be crazy and go to a dealership or StiffyLube. Here I can shake hands with my technician and actually talk about the car. I know his name: his name is Bob, do you know who works on your car?

Had 2 lug bolts shear off while doing a brake job (no thanks to Costco Tire).

Sparks underestimated the quote for the repair, but so did two other shops and the dealer.

Repair was done on time and they even fixed an issue I had screwed up on the brakes...for FREE!

Will gladly return to this shop for future automotive work.

One of the best repair shops I have ever been to. Very knowlegable staff, clean, AAA approved, ASE Blue seal certified and has a five start EnviroStar rating. My kind of shop. And the best thing is my car was repaired in a timely manner and was done right. I have been going to this shop for seven years now and plan to keep going to this shop for many years to come.
