So far all the service and repairs at A&E have been done professionally, they seem to do a good job. I am a person who takes care of my cars and stay on top of things. So far A&E had done a good job on both of my cars. I check everything after a repair has been completed, everything seems to be done in a professional manner.

I have so far had positive experiences with all 3 of my vehicles.

From the moment the tow truck got there I was never pushed into something that I didn't want or need. They fixed my problem and got it done quickly.

They provided exactly what I was looking for. The time to retrieve vehicle was better than other places I have been to.

by - Verified Customer August 31, 2013

Good service, but since I am a veteran diyer myself, service is quiet pricey for me. I need their services since I need the brake lamp test to register my salvage car

They were willing to help, and I have nothing against the friendliness of the workers I spoke with. But my car did not get repaired. It was only a quick fix, and I paid a lot of money even just for them refilling my brake fluid. I took my car in to be fixed, and not even a couple weeks later: the same problem. I thought I had great service until the problem came up. I called them when the same thing happened & left a message, and no response. I gave up. I'm not going back. I appreciate the help, but not fixing my problem with the car & charging me something I could have done myself.. not the business. I only gave them two stars because they didn't charge me for towing b/c I got serviced at their shop.

This is one of the more pleasant experiences I've had from an auto repair facility. The personnel were very helpful and explained the cost to repair my Hyundai Santa Fe. I was given a detailed cost estimate and a time when the car would be ready. They even gave me a ride home and a ride back to the facility when the car was ready
I would recommend A&E Towing for your towing and repair needs

I brought my 2008 Mazda 5 to A&E because the car was shuddering whenever I braked at higher speeds. I thought that my rotors were bent and told that to John. He said he would check it out and he could have easily told me that they were bad and sold me new ones but instead gave me the real reason, that my tires were wearing funny and I needed new ones. I appreciated his honesty and will now be taking my car there for all future service. I've already told friends about A&E and will continue to recommend them to whoever needs their car repaired. The staff there were very helpful and friendly and even gave me a ride to and from my house. Excellent customer service!

by - Verified Customer March 05, 2013

I would recommend A&E automotive to my friends. John looked at my car, called me and told me what was wrong and approximately how much it would cost. Since my car is 12 years old, he had trouble finding some of the parts. He called me and told me there would be a delay in fixing the car until the parts came in. On another problem the parts were going to take approximately a month to come in. He fixed the problem with the catalytic converter. He called me and I have the car now. When the part for the heater comes in I will bring the car back for it to be fixed. The people in this shop are friendly, experienced, and seemed to be knowledgeable and honest. It is difficult when you are a widow to find a mechanic who is honest and will explain exactly what needs to be done and how much it will cost.

I am very pleased with your concern and the service I received and I will definitely recommend A&E to others.

by - Verified Customer February 07, 2013

I have been going to them for 7 to 8 years. I have a particular mechanic I'm fond of. I have a 1956 t-bird that I trust them to work on. I refer them and they are excellent.

You should really take this vehicle in to be checked out. Without seeing the vehicle first idea would be valve cover gasket, but a blocked PCV could also cause that problem. These can be diagnosed.
