I had an intermittent starting problem that was difficult to diagnose but rather than just replacing parts randomly they took the time to identify the problem and only replace the parts that were needed.

I really appreciate the service I received from the Alternative Automotive team much better than what I received from the dealer where I originally took the vehicle.

Thanks again.

Steve, Omar and staff made me feel very comfortable leaving my vehicles in their care and they did a great job.

You've served my one car for about 250,000 miles and it's still running well. Thanks!
