I trust that the service I get is what is needed. The technicians and office management are thorough & go the extra mile to ensure my auto is safe & sound. I like the breakdown on my estimate & receipts of what has been done, or what needs to be done, along w/prices. A bit pricey, but worth the extra $$$.
I feel the acted in a very professional way and always feel confident with their work. They have always treated me with respect.
Great service. Great mechanics.
Stacy, Sam & Jonathan were kind enough to service both of my vehicles without an appointment - what life savers!! Thanks so much!!
Friendly, efficient, accommodating, effective, experienced, professional.
It is nice to go to a repair shop where you feel you can trust the work. I know they have integrity, Very happy with work performed.
Easy and efficient smog check from Wayside Garage. Excellent customer service!
Nicest people to deal with from a service department...EVER! I'm speaking of decades worth of repair shops where people weren't anywhere near as nice as these folks. Seriously!
Went in for diagnostic of a coolant leak. Diagnosis was $60 something, but applied to repair cost. Found the dang plastic radiator cracked. Ordered the radiator in time to catch the morning delivery. They started the tear down right away and had the job done in the afternoon. Did not replace any hoses etc, just coolant. It was a big job, and expensive. If you want cheap work, don't come here, but done right and fast costs a bit more.
This was my first visit and i was very happy with the service I (and my car) received. I will be back.
Always excellent and honest
Work completed as per request.
Always happy with my service. They see me often with my 5 vehicles. Friendly and very honest.
Last service on my F-250 was very satisfying and I will return again.
I have used them for a long time and knew that I would not have to worry about anything.
Excellent service, very satisfied with my experience.
Stacy and Sam at Wayside are wonderful.
Very quick service at a time when all shops were busy. Will definitely return!
Excellent service and prompt
I love this shop they treat you like family. I know Stacy and Sam would not let me drive away knowing something major was wrong.
Front end brake job done oil change and filter, car safety check. Just lifted the hood for the first time since we got our car back from repair. Immediately noticed filler cap for brake fluid was set on top with an air gap being held in place by vent hose, also air filter canister two latches only one latch was buckled. These two items concern me greatly of the quality of work done to my brake system and all else that was done to the car.
I had an engine replaced done by wayside. The front office staff kept me well informed on progress. There was a problem with engine they received, however they offered a rental car and considering the difficulties they faced completed the job in a timely manner.
Fast friendly reliable.
They tuned up my Prius, did the work for a fair price and had it done on time.
Amazing shop. Great customer service and car service provided! Awesome!
Great service, very punctual
Helpful, pleasant staff, and good prices
Top notch - like I have come to expect!
I like Wayside because of the personal relationship with the owners as a customer. I don't feel like a number on a production line. That's the impression I got from this last visit, just like all previous visits.
Everything went well.
Friendly office staff
Not upfront about the repairs that needed to be done- tried to have me pay $300 extra dollars for unnecessary repairs
Thank you for your review. We strive for excellent customer service. I apologize for any miscommunication on your vehicle. If at any time there is a question about repairs recommended, please feel free to call or stop by.
Great service, but the lounge chairs could be better. HaHa
Wayside Garage has always been there for me. They always go the extra mile for their customers and always have a smile on their faces.
Service always good here. Has been for years.
Quick service and friendly staff.
Very nice and helpful.
Truck was fixed on time and they did good job
We brought the car in for a brake and light inspection which was done satisfactorily.
They seem very competent and knowledgeable. I have concerns about how difficult it is to park there and how busy they are. Had to wait a bit longer for an appointment than I would have liked. But they were very nice and have good communication. They do seem overly busy. I only received an estimate and an oil change so I cannot comment on their work, per se.
The staff is excellent and the work is wonderful
A lot less money than the dealership.
The service is great.
I was impressed that I was able to get an appointment so fast.
The receptionist was extremely rude when we called to get information about our vehicle. I was pleased overall with service but did not receive a call that we needed additional work done until 5pm when the shop was closing.
Thank you for your review. Please accept our apologies for the lack of communication and the poor customer service. We have taken this into consideration and are making changes to help better your customer service experience.
I had a major problem and it was corrected by Wayside with expertise and assuring attitude. I have extreme confidence that they will solve any issues I have with my vehicle. I have been dealing with them since the early 80's.
I have been a customer for 30 Years and I don't intend to stop.
Prompt , courteous and professional.
These guys are the best, always accurate on completion times and quality work
They are polite, efficient, courteous and honest.
Friendly staff, transparent communication about service, when it would be performed, why, and how much.
friendly and reliable
Speedy, courteous service. Stacey got me the best price for my parts.
Great people. Great service.
We have had our cars serviced for many years at Wayside. They go out of their way to make sure they give us excellent service.
Wayside has been our automotive repair dealer of choice because of the super friendly staff and the professional care for our vehicles.
Great service & everyone is really nice.
Great communication and service.
Friendly and honest service, and affordable.
They have always been fair and honest. I trust them with all of my automotive needs on my multiple vehicles.
They worked at it until they found the problem.
Good, prompt service.
We brought our vehicle in at 9:00 on Monday morning as agreed. Having not heard from Wayside Garage by 4:00 PM, we called them and were told that they had not yet gotten to the van and prepared an estimate, and since they closed at 4:30 the estimate wouldn't be ready until the following morning. The next day they emailed us the estimate, which seemed a bit high, but they had the vehicle so we told them to go ahead. The price that we ended up paying was more than we expected to pay for a brake job, based on what we have paid at other shops in the past.
Thank you for your review. We appreciate your concern about controlling automotive repairs and services, but we want you to know that our prices are calculated to only cover our costs and allow the shop a fair profit, not a penny more.
I was so humanely facilitated in every way. Even waiting with other customers an balanced atmosphere of professionalism, community, friendship and trust was present. When walking to the Wharf to wait the time needed to inspect my vehicle communication was well connected. Follow up calls to make sure I was back before closing were most important, timely and appreciated. Everything was before and after explained to me in detail of the processes. It was as if my own family members who loved me took care of me. That is 'Love!' Beyond 'Politically Correctness'.
Excellent everything! Customer service, competent work on my car, reasonable cost.
Personal and friendly service at reasonable price.
Friendly service, great prices, fast and very personable.
I'm happy with the service I received. The charges were clearly explained. The work (timing belt replacement) took a little longer than expected but was finished in one day. I've had no problems with my car since the work was done.
They have provided many years of good service for our cars.
It is run by a couple who are easy to work with and honest as can be----which is becoming rarer and rarer these days.
They have a great Customer Care relation and ensure your car is running perfectly to their satisfaction before you leave the shop.
Timeline of repair was way off, luckily we have a second vehicle. Communications was very bad I had to keep calling daily instead of them updating me.
Satisfied with everything, although not enough seating area while waiting.
You always treat customers with respect, whether it's a man or woman also listen to what I have to say about my vehicle.
Wayside is a very trustworthy and honest shop, I have recommend that friends take their vehicles there for repairs.
They are responsible in recommendations and reasonable priced in repairs.
Fast & friendly. Location a bit difficult with traffic and no parking - the only drawbacks I saw.
They were helpful, charged what they quoted, and did good work, on-time.
They do excellent work and are trustworthy.
