Convoy Auto has the most pleasant people at their front desk. They always explain the process they use to diagnose and then fix the vehicle. My car key battery had died and they showed me the tricks to take it apart and replace the battery. Great place.

by - Verified Customer November 05, 2017

I have been going to Convoy for years and they have never let me down. Great service.

by - Verified Customer November 03, 2017

They were the only ones to give me a breakdown of what will be done and how much it would cost. Compared to other shops, nobody did that, they just gave me a quote. What I was quoted, is what I paid. I would come back for future repairs.

The shop was fast and knew a lot. Courteous too. Thanks!

Strange thumping noise from under the car diagnosed.

by - Verified Customer October 13, 2017

The service was good and the people are friendly. But the problem I took it for didn't get fixed. And when I took it back they said it was a different part. I don't know how this wasn't caught the first time. And the price quoted for the second repair was extremely expensive, so I decided not to get the work done for it.

I appreciate having being told exactly how much the repairs will cost ahead of time, and then having to pay that same amount with no hidden fees. Great job on the customer service, cleaning waiting area, and prompt repairs!

My car issue was resolved and I want to thank Joe for his concern and resolve in fixing the problem. I will more than likely return in future. While waiting for my car I saw how staff helped customers and was very impressed. Thank you for your servicing my car.

The people here are incredibly kind and friendly. They inspected my check engine light and even called the closest dealership to ask if I was within warranty and could get my car repaired by the dealership for a discount or at no cost before calling me. The car was ready a day later and they were kind enough to keep the shop open an additional 30 minutes past closing time when my ride got stuck in Friday traffic getting me there. Would highly recommend this place, quality repairs and above all else, quality people.

I prefer serviceman to tell me on the phone, not use terms like 'come in and we'll talk it over', just say, 'yeah, it's broken inside the compressor, major bucks, then we will look at the hose for leakage'. I figured it would be a lot, but I don't like vague talk. Just say it.

I always feel well taken care of by the friendly folks at Convoy Auto. When my repair was going to take more time due first to an unavailable part, and then to the discovery of an additional failed part after the first repair was complete, I was contacted each step of the way. And they were still able to get it finished just in time by close of the second day. Convoy never leaves me hanging.

My car broke down on the freeway. I was towed to the shop within a reasonable time frame. They got my car running again that same day. I knew I had multiple issues with my car, but they got me back on the road that day and itemized a list of suggested repairs and pricing for me to plan for. Nice guys. I felt confident they'd do the best they could without draining me financially.

I like the fact that they are approved by AAA and give a 10% AAA discount (up to $50). It's also a plus that they give a ride home and pick you up when your car is done. Most importantly, you can rely on them to get the job done right.

Convoy Auto took my car in without any notice. They did the Smog check and oil change I asked for. They inspected the car. The Front brakes needed work. There were some other less important discrepancies noted too. They completed the brakes and alignment by the end of the day. My wife was so happy they did the repairs. She said 'It acts like a new car!'. We opted to wait for the other repairs. I know why I keep going back to Convoy Auto!

They broke my tire valve and sensor and didn't offer to replace or even offer for me to buy the part and them put it in for free. They admitted to breaking the valve and insisted the sensor was broke when I brought it in.

by - Verified Customer February 01, 2017

Work requested was performed properly and on time. Did not appreciate being told after the fact that hoses should be replaced after the radiator was filled back up, which creates a whole new job, especially when I am paying per hour.

They have been servicing my car for over six years.

by - Verified Customer October 30, 2016

Only rated a 7 because after the repair was completed I priced other shops and they were much lower in cost.

I spent too much money.

I took a used car in to be examined and they identified all problems and talked me out of a "lemon".

The price markup was extremely high and unreasonable. They misdiagnosed the problem but still charged me full price for labor.

Questions Answered by Convoy Auto Repair
I just had my brake shoes replaced and the...
Good question. In the handling of used brake pads and/or shoes they are considered hazardous waste as they may contain asbestos. Each shop independently decides how they chose to handle this material. Some pay to have them hauled away and some get paid to have them hauled away. If the fee was part of the total parts and labor quote you authorized (less sales tax) then it is perfectly legitimate. If it was added to the final bill is is not.
My question says it all... The check engi...
PO301 (Cylinder 1 misfire) can be caused by many different causes many of which requires testing to get to the root causes. Replacing the spark plugs is alway a good idea from a maintenance viewpoint and if simple a easy test to see if one of the plugs may be the problem. After that I would recommend to have your vehicle tested and not to spend additional time and expense for parts that may not fix the problem.
Yes, I would consider it dangerous. The light is warning the driver that in the event of a accident the air bag may not deploy. This, depending on the accident will lead to potential serious injuries to the driver and/or passengers

Based on the fact that the engine cranks eliminates the battery as a problem. Most likely it is some type of input signal that has gone bad or a fuel problem. Either way the vehicle will need to be diagnosed to make the correct repair recommendation.
When the shimmie is not present under that speed and goes away above that speed is almost always tire related. My recommendation is to have you tires inspected by Discount Tire, Balance as/if needed. Then if you still have concerns it will need inspected by a repair facility
I would like to know as to what is the rea...
All the national labor guides show 7.0 hour per side. The manuals all describe that cylinder head removal is required. I have just recently completed a left side manifold replacement on a 4.7 Tundra and there is a way to remove the manifold without removing the cylinder head. It is still quite difficult but can be accomplished in half the time and at a substantial savings over “book time”

This is a very reasonable price. It is on the low side of the Estimator if you use that as a range guideline. Be sure the products and labor have at least a 2 year / 24,000 mile warranty.

Your description indicates that the vehicle will need to be towed for diagnosis and repairs. Based on your detailed description their are multiple possibilities may of which would not actually be considered major. If we can be of service we can be reached at 858-560-9131. David

Always a hard question. Testing the vehicles power and grounds to the actual window switch is step #1. This verifies that the fuses are good, the wiring from the fuse panel to the switch is good and that the switch itself is good. Assuming all those test out the next step is to remove the door panel to test the window motor, inspect the regulator and make the final determination on what does need to be repaired.

The PO303 will need to be diagnosed. You could have a compression problem and/or a no spark condition on that cylinder. Based on your description of "loss of power" I would start with a compression test on all four cylinders wet and dry to verify the internal integrity of the valves and piston so you can eliminate any problem there. Then if the compression is good I would move onto checking the spark on cylinder #3.
