Very satisfied!

by - Verified Customer April 17, 2017

Vancea is a very reasonable charges and very professional staff. They will call you before any repairs are done and explained in detail the trouble they found. They don't push you to do anything right away. They give you options and I feel very good about the diagnosis repairs! I would recommend Vancea Brothers highly!!

They are extremely helpful, nice, and they have good prices.

by June 19, 2015

The last time I took my vehicle there they tried to explain that there was something additionally wrong with it. I got a second opinion and the "problem" turned out to not even exist. To me it seemed like they didn't take the time to look properly. I also took it in there with no damage. When I got my vehicle back it had tire damage on two of the four tires. The damage they caused cost 300-400 dollars to fix.
