Pro-tip: Err on the side of a weaker handshake. I might look pretty fit, but I had a bruised tendon in my right hand and almost cried when the shake was so firm. I learned this the hard way after accidentally squeezing out a couple of tough looking construction dudes who had done the job so long they were arthritic.

Everyone at Blu's seems very knowledgeable and dedicated to great service. They're so polite and considerate. After I asked for a loaner, they got me one by the end of the day. I'm sending my daughter there now to have a potential new car checked out for purchase.

Always a great experience at Blu Automotive. The entire staff is experienced and knowledgeable and their certified mechanics will fix it right the first time. They are honest and polite and I have never felt pressured into unnecessary repairs. I really appreciate the fact that they take the time to thoroughly explain my repairs for the layperson AND provide photos so that I may better understand. From oil changes to major repairs, I ONLY take my car to Blu Automotive.

by - Verified Customer

My car (Camry) was finished no one told me. I had to go the front no one was available. Marvin was helping a lady who was after me, Stephanie was no where to be found, Dave had the deer in the headlights look. Finally, some woman I have never seen before came out to cash me out. I almost took the keys and drove home and called you with my credit card number. Was not happy about that at all. Usually the service is much better. I hope you work on this. Bruce

Hi,
There can be several reasons a vehicle cranks and wont start after a jump start. I would start with checking the fuses, It may have blown a fuse during the jump start procedure. If you have a second key I would try that, it may have a problem with the vehicle recognizing the key. I would start with the two tips, thereafter if it does not solve the problem, I would have a qualified technician perform diagnostics.

There are several reasons a belt can break on your vehicle. Since you replaced the belt and alternator I would suspect a seized drive belt pulley or tensioner. Other possibilities can be that the pulleys that the drive belt rides on made be out of position causing the belt to bind and snap. I would recommend having a certified technician perform a thorough inspection of the drive belt system.
