I came in with an issue where my car was experiencing a random misfire. The mechanic suggested I replace my spark plug which I did. After receiving my car I immediately experienced another random misfire. Taking it to another mechanic to diagnose the issue being with the wires around the spark plug. When I asked a friend attendant when the soonest could be for this problem be fixed I was dismissed and told a week. I understand you were busy however I will not be using your shop again

My Brake Line broke, the car was towed to Clintonville Auto Repair Service. I was given an estimate prior to the work being done. I couldn't get everything done due to finances, CARS did not pressure me to complete all the work. Work performed was timely and a job well done.
