by - Verified Customer November 02, 2017

Rowdy and Aaron were so helpful and honest with the work done on our truck! Our truck runs better then before no thanks to the professional mechanics and staff at Tierra Del Sol! We have decided to have my wives Volvo taken care of at the the shop as well! Thank you to all of the hard working employees for doing such an excellent job on our vehicles! My wife and I highly recommend Tierra Del Sol for any vehicles like Diesel trucks and foreign cars!

by - Verified Customer November 01, 2017

Awesome job with the headlight covers. Understandable that it took a bit longer due to the long time before I got them done. Good Job!

by - Verified Customer May 22, 2017

Good job so far.

by - Verified Customer May 17, 2017

Surprised on how much other work that needed to be done. The value of my truck was not worth the labor and materials to fix the other services I didn't request to be done. I did have to take it back so they could inform me of a problem I had with my A/C.

by - Verified Customer May 02, 2017

Great job!

by - Verified Customer May 01, 2017

This great shop was typically gracious, accommodating, patient and explanatory. Very professional service as always, and much appreciated. Thanks!

by - Verified Customer March 22, 2017

I think the service was good and timely, but a little expensive.

by - Verified Customer March 21, 2017

Brought in my SUV without an appointment, and it was done the same day.

by - Verified Customer March 15, 2017

They were very helpful, honest and knowledgeable.

by - Verified Customer March 14, 2017

They were awesome.

by - Verified Customer March 12, 2017

Everyone was very polite and helpful. They were detailed in explaining what repairs needed to be done. Unfortunately, one needed repair was overlooked the first time and I had to take the car back in. But they apologized and did the repair in an efficient amount of time. It was an honest mistake. I'm still very satisfied with the customer service.

Good experience. The only problem that came up was the incorrect headlight bulb was ordered the first time so the visit took a little longer than expected. They apologized and I was fine.

by - Verified Customer February 20, 2017


by - Verified Customer February 12, 2017

There are a number of vehicle maintenance shops in our area. I only use Tierra Del Sol.

by - Verified Customer February 06, 2017

Surprised parts were readily available for 25yo vehicle!

by - Verified Customer January 29, 2017

Always a great experience.

by - Verified Customer January 12, 2017

I had them check a noise and I was told it was the tires and front struts were the cause of the noise. Come to find out it was the carrier bearing and I was charged for the diagnosis. Unhappy that I paid about $60 and not even close to what was the real problem.

by - Verified Customer January 11, 2017

Our started went out and was replaced in a timely fashion. Thanks.

by - Verified Customer January 04, 2017

All work performed was done in a professional manner, no complaints. Also, thanks for the access to the candy dish.

by - Verified Customer December 21, 2016

Great treatment as always.

by - Verified Customer December 20, 2016

Just a note, I had an oil change done and it said on my paperwork that my windshield wipers were in good condition. I know for a fact that they are not. And not sure if they checked tire pressure or not. It wasn't marked.

It was good.

by - Verified Customer December 12, 2016

I came in for an alignment that I had a coupon for. Mike took me for a test drive and explained that it may not be needed. I asked to have it checked anyway. They inspected the vehicles steering and suspension parts and a ball joint was needed prior to performing the alignment. They demonstrated care in evaluating the concern and even offered to honor the alignment certificate I received once the repair was made. Very professional auto care facility.

by - Verified Customer December 08, 2016

All great as usual.

by - Verified Customer November 21, 2016

Great experience. Appointment scheduled the day prior. Car finished the same day I dropped it off. Great work, and a great group to do business with.

by - Verified Customer November 15, 2016

Staff was very friendly. Check engine light on. Ran diagnostic charged me for an hour shop labor. Okay with charges but they told me the brake fluid should be flushed based on mileage.

Every time I (we) visit Tierra Del Sol, we are greeted warmly and educated about our vehicles condition. They keep a service history and maintenance schedule that is easy to follow. I know what services my vehicle needs and when it needs it. They are very professional and knowledgeable on all makes and models of vehicles. I noticed the mechanics certifications on the wall and that also makes me comfortable in knowing that the staff is thoroughly trained in what they are doing.

They have provided me with super service for the 5 years I have gone to them. They stand behind their service and repairs and they provide a ride to or from their place and mine. They are honest and caring and just all round pleasant to deal with.
