Estimate for brake repair and alignment way out of line with other shops. Both were done alot less than your estimate. Two shops looked at the control arm and could not find a problem.

by - Verified Customer November 07, 2017

terrible experience. brought the car in for a diagnostic ($100 same as dealership) they diagnosed the cars issues and had quite the list of repairs recommended which I will give the benefit of the doubt in presuming they were in fact needed. picked up the car and within driving 50 feet from their location my car felt very sluggish and my oil light came on along with smoke coming from my engine. I walked back to ask to speak to the mechanic that looked at my vehicle and he came out to see if he could help me although he blew it off as just a coincidence (never have had that issue previously). after talking things over with the mechanic he was describing his diagnostic process at which point it became apparent that the directions I had given the shop were misunderstood. (i told them smoke was coming from left side of engine bay / they worked from the right side) this may or may not cause a different diagnostic or just a complete overlook of my initial problem. When i picked the car up from the shop it also had about 2 inches of standing water in the passenger floorboard. no sure if it rained and leaked through the sunroof drain or if they left my window open. I have had further diagnostics done at a different shop, they have found that the water had taken out my airbag module as well as transmission module. I will continue to give the benefit of the doubt and assume this came from a sunroof drain issue as they are common in my car's model. However it was only raining shortly after i initially dropped the car off so if this water was in the car while they diagnosed it they must be blind or ignorant to have missed it. After this great amount of trouble I inquired on the possibility of them taking a look at what caused the oil light to come on. All the mechanic would do is check the oil otherwise i would have to pay for another diagnostic charge. Overall very displeased with the customer service. Had they waived a $100 diagnostic fee i would have likely spent $1500+ on repairs there. They did not so i took my business elsewhere.

My wagon was serviced while it was in the shop getting a new motor for the tailgate. So far everything is going well.

by - Verified Customer

I unfortunately did not have a good experience this time after bringing my car in. I had my brakes changed and immediately after leaving the parking lot they were squeaking. There had previously been no brake squeaking until I have them changed. I brought my car back again, where the brake pads were taken off and lubricant was supposedly placed. The squeaking however has continued.
