I took my vehicle to Excel for the first time they were really courteous and professional.They diagnose my vehicle and gave me an estamate, I approved the repair and my vehicle was ready sooner than I imagine it would be.They did a great job on my vehicle, it was repaired CORRECTLY the FIRST TIME with no SURPRISES.I certainly will recommend them and continue doing business with Excel.I for one like having just one mechanic touching my vehicle.
Also the shuttle service was a PLUS.

This garage earned my business because of the way I was treated from the very first phone call. Unlike the first garage I contacted who wouldn't give me an "estimate" of the repairs I needed done, saying they would "have to look at it first"...un hunh....Excel gave me a quote over the phone. I had the parts I needed replaced priced already on my own before I even called and that price was the same Excel quoted me on..... Complete with the estimate of labor I received, they were spot on with the bill. I took my car into them at 12 minutes after 8 for the rear suspension. About four to four and a half hours later I received a phone call that my car was finished. Excel took the time and answered several questions I had regarding future repairs, and I was even able to look at the old parts that came off. (I just wanted to see just HOW bad my old shock was leaking). Over the years I have always waited with my vehicle while something was being repaired, however Excel is just open M-F, not on the weekends, which didn't really coincide with my schedule. I still went there though because every review I read had nothing but positive things to say about the business. They will have me as a loyal customer from now on if it is something I cannot fix myself. I highly recommend this garage if you want honesty integrity and professionalism!!
A Subaru dealer when replacing a leaking cv boot on the right side suggested replacing the left side, too, stating it was dry and cracking. They also told me of a head gasket leak but gave no other information of use about that.
Jay at Excel Automotive checked the cv boot and even took digital pictures to show me that they were all in serviceable condition and none needed replacement at this time. He also showed me the picture of a minimal valve cover seepage of nearly no consequence and rather typical of a high mileage engine.
Excel did not charge for this inspection but they did earn my future business and recommendation to friends.
I am so glad I found Excel Automotive! For too many years I've taken my car to the local VW dealership for service and I've spent way too much money. When my recent issue popped up, I knew I had to finally do something different. I called the dealership - just to see what they would charge - and was immediately quoted $375 for labor! I called Excel Automotive and Jay gave me a reasonable quote. It almost sounded unreal compared to the insane amounts I've paid the dealership in the past. My experience with Excel was awesome! Jay was so nice and he explained everything. He even showed me the bad parts. I'm so happy I found a trustworthy mechanic! I plan to keep my car for years to come and I will definitely use Excel for all my future repair needs.
