Everything was done to my satisfaction.

by - Verified Customer April 09, 2017

Car runs great! Thankful to Zia for getting it fixed.

by - Verified Customer April 04, 2017

I'm a regular customer. This most recent experience was unfortunate in that the repairs took 2 hours longer than estimated and then I had to bring the car back in twice to fix two unrelated problems. To their credit, the guys were upfront and responsible about it so I'll keep coming back.

They did what they said for the price and in a timely manner.

The people at Zia are highly professional and very skilled.

I am responding for my cousin who traveled all the way from CA in a 'classic' car that he has been restoring and did not expect any problems when he made it out here. He had difficulty starting it the next day and a tow truck driver suggested a Triple A auto shop nearby and we were absolutely surprised by the expeditious service, outstanding repair price, and most courteous, friendly shop personnel. We would definitely recommend this shop to other family and friends.
