I've used Car Shop twice for 2 vehicles because it was recommended by AAA and was convenient. The experience was not bad, but there is room for improvement.

They always take care of me.

Verified CustomerJanuary 11, 2016

They said my brakes was going bad. I got a second viewing on the brakes from a main corporation, they told me my brakes was practically new and didn't have to pay for the check up, I only put a 4 because the cashier let me go first.

The employees at The Car Shop are always friendly and helpful when I come in for service. They don't try and tell you that you need to have service done that isn't necessary and they give you recommendations on future services that you will need.
