Verified CustomerOctober 02, 2014

I have had work done on my car several times by Superior, as I'm a widow and must rely on others for help. They were recommended to me by a friend, and I have been fully satisfied. They suggest items on the Mercury that I should watch for and what to do about them. I have really appreciated their good service and concern.

Superior Auto clinic has worked on my cars for 16 years. Gary and staff are honest & efficient.

June 25, 2015

Very disappointed. I took my car in because it was running rough, paid them $100 to run an analysis. They called and said a part needed replacement and would cost an additional $340. Naturally, I went online to see what the usual cost for that would be. -Repair pal- gave an estimate at between $160 and $220 for my area NOT $440. I told them no thanks and on my way home from Superior Automotive I stopped at the auto parts store, bought the part for $80 and had it switched out within the hour. The car runs great. These people are a total rip-off. How often do they stack the bill? I will never go there again and will steer as many people clear of that place as I can!
