Brian was very attentive as I was explaining the issue I was experiencing. After not finding any major issue that was causing my problem, he did some preventative maintenance which made to issue go away. I was not charged since he did not need to fix anything. I was very impressed by this service. Thank you

by - Verified Customer August 14, 2017

My car was fixed on the first visit, the repairs were explained and the price was very fair. Excellent work and would highly recommend to others.

I took my car there because it was recommended by a coworker how uses the shop. My dealer ship had said I need about $4000 dollars worth of repair. They fixed it rotating the tires again (were rotated by dealership wrong) and did not charge me until I can back to rotors turned. Completely satisfied and will definitely return!

by - Verified Customer January 27, 2014

Most recent, they did not call me to authorize work being done on my vehicle. In the past, it has taken them 2-3 times to fix very simple issues (freeze plug leaking coolant).

Reply from Central Florida Auto Repair – by CFAR July 18, 2014

I am sorry Mr H.for our missteps in communication ,but FL law allows us some leeway to diagnose and repair up to $100 without auth -I made a decision to perform a repair that was causing you engine problems ,you voiced concern, you were not charged...the prior car had multiple coolant damaged weakness' that took over a few months to correct ...sorry for our loss....Frank

When they were fixing the problem, they came across some other things they thought needed fixed but they didn't call and talk to me about it BEFORE fixing it. Then, the shift wouldn't work when I came to pick up the car. A guy stuck his hand in the engine and "fixed" it but when I got home had the same problem so I had to take the car back over to have it fixed again.

Reply from Central Florida Auto Repair – by CFAR July 18, 2014

the vehicle had major engine damage from lack of maintenance and did not run...Car was towed home,after a quote was approved and towed back to shop, there were hidden damages to some parts needed and sold at no extra labor to help with unknown cost additions...the shifting issue was one of them done at no charge...we worked with you and waited to get paid after completion...we tried to help in every way...

I've used CFAR for a number of years now. I feel they have done an excellent job at a reasonable price and they stand behind their work.

by - Verified Customer August 26, 2007

The last repair was to replace an emergency flasher unit. The mechanic had to remove a plastic panel under the steering column and broke the clip on the panel. This was brought to our attention but discovered after we returned home. The charge was ~$100 for the flasher unit replacement which I never complain about the invoice but breaking parts in the process of performing the repairs is unacceptable and not telling us is unforgivable. I have frequented CFAR for over 15 years but recently my confidence is waning.

My car shows the ABS braking light is on, ...
The abs light indicated a failure in the abs system-the normal braking will work but the safety of the braking system is compromised-A diagnostic is needed.
Same thing happens everyday
Sounds like a fuel issue.A proper repair starts with a diagnostic as the possibility with advanced computer engine controls could be another issue.
