When my battery died, I was attending college, and my Dad was at home. The help that I received in store, and them working over the phone with my dad was outstanding. I didn't feel worried about having to do anything by myself there.

Fixed right the first time. Completely honest, and fair prices.

by - Verified Customer June 12, 2015

Unacceptable level of accountability and service in general. $500 worth of repairs and they told me that my car had irreparable damage and was not driveable. The irreparable damage was 12 inches from the repairs being done and they claimed not to have noticed. I verified with 3 other shops that it was unlikely they didn't notice and just wanted my money.

by - Verified Customer June 03, 2015

On a recent visit, they left multiple screws on the passenger side floor of my car after repairs were completed. They also did not discard the old ECM (computer) after installing a refurbished one on a previous visit. Prices also seem a little higher than at other shops in the area.

They did what they said they would for the price they quoted. Also tried to save me some money in the process.

They had my vehicle for 2 1/2 weeks and could not fix it and still charged me almost $200.

At Bill White's Car Hospital they give excellent service. If anything extra needs to be done, they always call me and ask if I want the extra service. They are very pleasant and give me a ride to work when needed.

Their work has always been of consistent quality and, if something is not right, they work hard to correct it.

Great, timely service. Excellent quality and communication. Complete ownership of the service they provide.

I trust them to tell me what NEEDS to be fixed now, and what may need attention soon (or can wait a while). Most shops try to convince you to fix it all right now.

Great service that you can trust. Alex has always given me good advice, doesn't push me into work I don't need, and keeps me up to date on necessary items.

Rude and poor service. They did work before confirming that it was ok. Charged for "diagnostics" when I provided exact issue that was wrong.

The people at the Car Hospital took a personal interest in listening to the issue we were having, gave consideration to the possible causes, and began from the conservative approach of testing and adjusting instead of just changing parts. Also, they communicated to us their ideas and asked our thoughts. A really good group.

Good customer service. Problem was fixed quickly.
