Awesome service, got my car done with exactly what it needed when they said it would be done, didn't try to oversell me on things my car didn't need. 5/5!

They did a good job diagnosing problem. Did not have work done due to price not being cost effective for age of vehicle

Made an appointment. Dropped her off waited a week later and picked her up with a smile .

by - Verified Customer July 23, 2017

It would have been better to give me my car over the weekend and let me bring it back on Monday. It was drivable and had a valid inspection. Perhaps I should have asked or insisted. I was relieved when my 2nd car did not have major repairs. They are both old, which may be a factor, but we only drive them 2K miles per year. I'm just not sure whether these fellows are highbinders. The work is good, but I couldn't wholeheartedly recommend them to another. I guess I'm willing to give them another year or two to earn my trust.

I felt like I received honest feedback about my truck, and they got me ready to take a road trip. It's really nice to be able to find a mechanic who is straight forward and helpful. The customer service was great!

Excellent customer service and excellent repair work done on my car. I was kept in the loop from the time I left my car at the repair shop, during the diagnostics, part acquisition, and repair needed. I am very happy with this shop and the mechanics. Everything was thoroughly explained and the car is working much, much better. I will definitely recommend this shop to anyone who needs car repair. USAA recommended this mechanic's shop and I can vouch that it was indeed a great recommendation. Thank you guys!

by - Verified Customer June 04, 2017

Initially was quoted a certain price with the repairs that we agreed upon, few days later I find out that the part we agreed to order was not available and we had to order the more expensive one and come to find, they had already ordered the part. The price jumped up substantially. Also they did not have a machine to do alignment.

by - Verified Customer February 09, 2017

The whole experience was wonderful. They are very honest, I will highly recommend them to others. I also felt that they were very capable to handle whatever was needed. Completely trustworthy. Another company had tried to talk me into a service that was completely not needed on a fairly new car. They are truly master technicians. Please relay my thanks to all. They represent their profession well.

The technician that worked on my daughter's car was very nice and respectful...the car required additional work in order to fix the original issue of not having heat....I just needed to get her car before the weekend. Overall, I was very satisfied with the work performed.

The hours aren't very convenient. I lost confidence in them when my engine light was still on when I came to pick up the car. The mechanic seemed to think that since it wasn't a serious matter it was ok to drive it with the light on.

I believe that Craig and the team are quite knowledgeable and I appreciate the reports that they provide with work completed and recommended. There have been a few challenges with completion time expectations, but that appears to be the exception. There also appears to be an issue with the most recent repair, but I have not been able to get back to them about remediation.

Questions Answered by Master Auto Technicians
Is this going to cause a inspection reject...
Yes, it will cause the car to be rejected. We can find out what the code is for $54.99, and give you an idea of the cost to diagnose and repair.

Volkswagen did have trouble with door switches, unfortunately it is part of the door latch. It won't lock if the computer thinks one of the doors is open. It should be able to be tested with our scan tool.

Hi, check your coolant level by removing the radiator cap while the engine is cold. Does the temperature gage come up slowly or does it take a long time to get to half way?
