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.

Clintonville Auto Repair Service was able to work me in on short notice, fix the engine sensor problem preventing my car from starting, and alert me to other potential issues I should consider having repaired. Thorough explanation and no pressure to do the recommended service.

Very pleased overall with the promptness, quality of work, and the efficiency. The waiting room was comfortable and clean. I was only visiting in Columbus when I had the repair done but would certainly use C.A.R.S. on future visits if necessary.
