Great attitude. Very knowledgeable about my car.

Just brought it in for new wipers. Appreciated knowing there were two grades. I chose the more expensive ones bc I don't like smeary windhields
So glad I got them
Only thing: took almost 45 mins. Even though guy went out there right away. Seems unnecessary amount of time

These guys are patient, friendly, and take time to explain things well. I felt foolish when I thought something had been fixed at home, prior to taking my car in to have additional things fixed, when they reassured me it hadn't been completed. But they didn't argue with me or make me feel stupid. This place was recommended to me, and after the kindness and quality of work, I can see why. I too will be recommending them for friends and family.

WWA is a shop with integrity. I'm always glad to have my vehicles serviced there.

World Wide Automotive Service is the best shop I've ever been to, period. I love them!

Efficient, clean, appropriate service that appears to be done to high standards and with correct consideration for manufacturer expectations. Prices are a bit higher than bottom barrel, but the quality of service is significantly better than bottom barrel.

by - Verified Customer February 21, 2017

I appreciate being informed of other repairs needed that I didn't anticipate. I did go ahead and have the additional repairs done in a timely fashion.

Having a problem with a tire they worked us in that day and got the problem fixed.

by - Verified Customer February 15, 2017

my visits are always excellent. I know what needs to be done because the problem is explained to me in detail. And they stick to their word about the amount of time it will take and the cost. I have never been disappointed. In fact, I send people to WWA every chance I get!

I had my winter tires replaced with all-seasons, and the process took about an hour and was fairly priced. I'm glad the technician also put my winter tires back into the storage bags I had the all-seasons in.

by - Verified Customer February 13, 2017

The work was done as promised. Works for me!

by - Verified Customer February 09, 2017

The work order was placed by someone else this time, so I didn't interact directly with the WWA staff. However, I've found them always to be helpful and professional in the past.

by - Verified Customer February 09, 2017

So far, so good on the repairs. The cost was higher than I thought it might be, which was the only thing that wasn't perfect.

I had a great experience getting my oil changed at WW Auto.

by - Verified Customer January 22, 2017

My recent experience and previous ones, too, have all been a pleasure. They provide excellent information, with details to explain, notice what needs to be done, are extremely efficient, and it is a pleasure just to sit and wait if the visit is routine. They treat everyone with respect. I've listened as they talk to others as well - all ages and genders.
What a dramatic change from days when car maintenance was only an unpleasant 'male' business, conducted in unpleasant atmosphere with a male condescending to a female. This is such a pleasure.

After using three other shops in town to fix my mini, I found worldwide.

by - Verified Customer January 04, 2017

This is our favorite garage in town. We were desperate, (our heater core was shot, in the dead of winter) and they were booked and couldn't take us for two weeks. (intervening holidays made this happen). We reluctantly took our car to the dealer, who could see us immediately. They ascertained what was wrong (we knew already) but wanted a ridiculous amount of money to complete the repair. We calculated we'd be ahead if we rented a car for two weeks, and let World Wide fix our car, which we did. They charged half of what the dealer would have, and delivered the car when they said they would. (and we borrowed an out of town friend's car, so we make out like bandits.) anyway, world wide is a very good garage, with lovely people, reasonable prices, and quality repairs.

Always a great experience! When my car broke down on its way to WorldWide, I was encouraged by WW's offer to call a towing service for me. After the repair was completed and I had driven home, I got a thoughtful call asking whether I had left my glasses on the counter. Always lots of extra touches with WW!
