My experience at the shop was completely satisfying and the service was excellent. All my services needs were met with satisfaction.

by - Verified Customer February 01, 2017

I always get very good service at USC Tires.

by - Verified Customer January 27, 2017

I thought the staff was very courteous and I always appreciate the waiting lounge - very clean and the wifi helps. The price quotes given on a job were a bit shocking, then again I have no idea what the job entails so I will have to trust the staff. Overall one of the best Auto Services I know.

Thanks!

I thought they were very kind and respectful. My car was good as new when they finished.

It's a little expensive for a student, but it seems it's well worth it. And I found that my clip was broken after picking up my car. John promised that he will order the clip online and call me to repair the clip. But one week has passed, I still haven't receive the call.

by - Verified Customer January 23, 2017

I paid about $40 for an oil change a year ago, and then I went in to get an oil change again because of how easy and quick it was the previous time, but for some reason, in about 1years time the price of an oil change has increased by almost $30? Nearly 200%? Then when I asked about it and explained my financial situation as a student, the manager on duty first tried to explain to me, a master in business administration candidate graduating in 3 months, how a business runs and that it's simply that oil prices rose over time and that the facility makes no money on oil changes etc etc. Then, when I explained to him that it's a facility called 'University Tire,' (read: for students) and that I simply couldn't afford a nearly $70 oil change, he told me to go ahead and find another place to bring my business. Unfortunately, I don't have time to find another place (which I had done research and found other locations that were charging a $40 flat rate posted), so I conceded and paid the $63 (he gave me a $4 discount, how generous). Then, on my way out, the manager made a paltry effort at making amends to me by calling me 'Travis' (not my name). After I informed him that this is in fact not my name, I sense he realized the situation was so far gone that it was no longer worth trying, so he exited stage right. I'll never be coming back to University Tire nor recommending my friends and colleagues to do business here, but I thought I ought to at least attempt to protect my fellow Trojans who will do business here by giving you the opportunity to understand this unacceptable incident and correct it.

The service appeared to be satisfactory, A little overprice as I found out later.

by - Verified Customer January 09, 2017

price was very high for a very simple repair. The technicians consistently gave me a time window for the repair and each time it took much longer than they predicted even though there were only a few other customers in the shop.

I came here based on a recommendation from a friend. I had a pleasant experience.

by - Verified Customer December 22, 2016

Very good service, and extremely well maintained/organized shop. I was not pressured to, but rather simply educated on repairs that would improve my car's performance.

by - Verified Customer December 29, 2016

University Tire Shop has been a great option to take our company vehicles for repairs. I also became a customer with my own vehicles and the service has been great.

by - Verified Customer December 28, 2016

Great experience! Workers briefly explained what was going on with my vehicle, other shops charge high fees for a simple check up and these guys did a check up and advised me on little things that my vehicle needed done for a reasonable price, great costumer service. I will definitely be going back!

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2016

Good. I will be coming back. Thanks guys!

Great atmosphere. Comfortable talking to the workers.

by - Verified Customer November 01, 2016

I really liked that the manager explained that one of the 'recommended' services was more likely to worsen the performance of my vehicle which would end up costing more so he suggested against it. I really value honesty.

by - Verified Customer November 24, 2016

Truth be told, I probably underrated them on the first two questions. They were courteous and professional. They took the time to explain to me how they made their diagnostics and how best to proceed. The information they provided was sufficient for me to go home and conduct my own research to determine the veracity of their claims. At no point did they pressure me into purchasing additional, potentially unnecessary services. I will be a repeat customer.

I had an obvious fault with one tire, and a suspected fault with another. They said they'd fix the obvious problem and check the others, but it's clear they didn't do this. Two days later the suspected tire that they didn't check was completely flat.
