I was quite happy with the repair- it was a simple fix and they could have told me that somehting worse was wrong, but they were honest and fair.

by - Verified Customer December 20, 2017

Quick oil change and tire rotation. Can't do it cheaper myself. Everyone is polite and treats you with respect.

by - Verified Customer March 24, 2017

I was not happy with paying for work to be done to my vehicle to still have the same problem afterwards. Then when I took it back, I had to pay again for the part to fix my vehicle correctly and the shop wanted to charge me the up price for the part. I highly doubt I will ever return for service.

by - Verified Customer March 19, 2017

Just oil change was done and they are always on time and advise on things that need to be done soon.

by - Verified Customer February 28, 2017

This was my 2nd visit. I feel very comfortable going there. I feel like I can trust them to be honest. I have been ripped off in the past.

by - Verified Customer January 16, 2017

I was extremely happy with the work that they did. The quality was excellent and everybody was professional and I got out in a very short amount of time.

by - Verified Customer January 13, 2017

by - Verified Customer December 01, 2016

I made a appointment for tires, but they didnt have tires when I came in. Had to make another apointmeant

by - Verified Customer November 30, 2016

I love the way they treat people and the service is awesome. The guy that performed the service in my vehicle was really nice and did an excellent job. I will keep bringing my vehicle to this place.

by - Verified Customer November 18, 2016

I asked for an oil change/rotation service. Oil change was fine. But I had purchased a full set of Hercules 55,000 mile tires on 02/06/2016, however 9.5 months and only 14,000 miles later, my front 2 tires are at the 2/32 replacement line, while my rear tires remain nearly new. Now I was informed that because I had play the left outter tie rod end on one side, the tires could not be warrantied for the rapid baldness. I could agree, if it was one tire worn on the inside or outside caused by a loose tie rod... but both tires, same wear, even across both tires. Brand new in February, need replaced before the very next winter, 41,000 miles before their 55,000 rating. I feel like I was blown off as an unimportant customer. Might push for more. Then I asked if the tire pressure was tested at 35. Yes! I was told. After leaving, pressures were 28, 29, 29, 29. Went back for 35. Now I have 32, 32, 32, 30. Come on guys.... u were perfect only a year ago. Whats happening? Plz work with me, as I love your shop, you're good guys, and I don't want to leave you.

by - Verified Customer November 14, 2016

Great shop with great guys. Excellent work

by - Verified Customer November 03, 2016

Great people, the work is done fast and right the first time. No pressure to get recommended repairs done. The only place I go for all repairs.

by - Verified Customer August 24, 2014

I have had my vehicles repaired there for a long time, they always have good prices, treat me well and get me in even when I don't have a scheduled appointment.

by - Verified Customer August 22, 2014

They do an oil change and a tire rotation for 19 dollars, they tell you what is wrong with your car. It seems like they are out to help you instead of just taking your money.

by - Verified Customer August 22, 2014

Most work is done right.

by - Verified Customer August 20, 2014

They have always done good work for me, and their prices are very reasonable.

by - Verified Customer August 20, 2014

It went well, I got what I needed. They have good customer service and the price was reasonable.

by August 19, 2014

The person up front said that they were over quoting people, they said that the mechanic had the work half done but when I went back there he wasn't even close to being finished.

by - Verified Customer August 19, 2014

They do excellent work, they don't try to rip you off. They are friendly and I trust them.

by - Verified Customer August 19, 2014

Auto-Excel and their customer service are excellent. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

by - Verified Customer August 18, 2014

They did the work I needed at a reasonable and affordable price for me.

by - Verified Customer August 17, 2014

My parents told me to go there because they have good deals.

by August 15, 2014

Everything was alright, all they did was an oil change.

by August 14, 2014

They had excellent service, they did the work they said they would at the price they quoted, and they got me in and out quickly.

by - Verified Customer August 14, 2014

He told me that my front headlights were out when they weren't, and then he tried to tell me that my bulbs were burnt out.

by - Verified Customer August 13, 2014

I have been going there for at least 15 years, they do good work and I have recommended a lot of people to them.

by - Verified Customer August 13, 2014

We have been going there for 20 years, if it needs fixed they will let you know. They are honest, fair and very reasonable.

by - Verified Customer August 12, 2014

They got straight to the point, and they did exactly what I needed in a timely manner and they are very accommodating.

by - Verified Customer August 10, 2014

They got my oil change done quickly and it was cheap.

by - Verified Customer June 23, 2014

Auto-Excel does great work, but the price is a little extreme.

by - Verified Customer June 22, 2014

Great customer service. Work done efficiently. Pleasant people to help. I feel honesty was above board. Thanks.

They always explain everything and provide fast & courteous service.

by - Verified Customer June 11, 2014

They were nice to me and didn't treat me like I was stupid because I am a female, like most auto places seem to do.

by - Verified Customer June 09, 2014

Question Answered by Auto-Excel
Needs jumped about once a week

Often when the battery and charging system check out fine there is a small electrical current that is draining the battery. Professionals in the automotive repair industry regularly refer to this as "parasitic draw". This type of problem will require an Automotive Technician with advanced electrical training to perform a parasitic draw test. In most cases the test reveals a component that stays on after the ignition switch is turned off.
