Great service. Front Desk Gal wasn't very friendly, but the technician/mechanic/owner (?) was very welcoming and helpful. Worked with us to decide what was a necessary repair vs. what we could put off since we're trading the car in in a few months.

They said they had time to do my car checkup in the morning, so I brought it when they opened and waited in the lobby an hour past when they closed. They tried telling me I needed 1200$ worth of work done, and I knew I didn't. I asked them to check my brakes because they felt off, and they literally didn't even look at the front ones and only did the back ones. I told them I needed it done because I was driving through the mountains, and I had to stop to have the front brakes done asap when I was up there. The mechanic said it was obvious they hadn't even taken any of the bolts off at lube and tune or bothered to check. I'll never go back there again, and I definitely won't recommend it to anyone.

Up to my last visit, I couldn't have been happier. This time I had to wait over an hour for a simple oil change and tire rotation. Problem was not their fault but someone had parked a large truck in front of the garage doors. But, I do not believe my tires were rotated since I immediately drove to Michigan where I got stuck on a small icy hill. Shouldn't have happened with a front wheel drive CR-V and properly rotated tires. Like I said, the service has been so good in the past that I am willing to overlook this time and continue as a loyal customer.

I do my own light duty repairs in my driveway. Because of this, I know my 17-year-old car very well. Anything I can't do myself, I trust these guys to take care of; they do good work. In those times when fixing one problem reveals another, they always clearly explain the problem and give an honest opinion of its severity. You don't have to know Mechan-lish (mechanic English) to get it, even though I speak it well. If the repair can wait, they tell me, and I appreciate that.

Eric and his staff did an amazing job helping me with my vehicle. They were very professional and courteous and went out of their way to help us afford all that needed to be done to my vehicle to make sure it was safe to drive with my kids in it.

I came to this shop to get my motorcycle inspected, which means I had to drive it there. However, it was about 30 degrees out. When I got there I was visibly shivering because I only own summer gear. They noticed that I was unbearably cold and invited me to the back where they had a portable heater so I could warm up. Very kind people.

I have always had quality work done at Clayton tire. Once had an issue with tires I had purchased on internet. Clayton tire helped me get new tires. Highly recommend.

The staff is ok, but when asking the customer questions they should let the customer know when they're finished so the customer doesn't just stand at the counter for no reason. Just say 'ok, you can have a seat and we'll call you when your car is ready'. Also, you shouldn't have 'Lube' in the name of your business if it takes more than an hour to change oil. If you want more customers, you should strive to get oil changes out within 30 minutes. The last two times it has taken almost 2 hours to get a simple oil change. Citgo Lube just down the road can do it in 20 minutes almost every time. Long waits are expected at a typical repair shop where you might leave your car and pick it up later, but not a 'lube' shop. Overall I like the people at the front desk, but I think they could do better for themselves if they focused on quicker oil changes and responding to customers while the customer is standing at the counter.

Staff is helpful and always on-time with my oil change.
Verified Customer
It took nearly 1.5 hours for an oil change despite there was no one in front of me waiting. I was late for an appointment and lost out on an important opportunity because of it. They were not upfront about the cost. The mechanic was not very friendly at all. I won't be going to Clayton Lube & Tune again. It's a shame because they have a convenient location close to home.
Verified Customer
All good.
