Every thing was good but the price was very high.

by - Verified Customer December 29, 2017

I 'm very happy as to how quickly they repaired my car.

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2017

I'm only visiting town for a few months, so I had no idea where to take my Mini when a problem arose. I went online and researched reviews, and that's how I found A Certified. Fantastic service, very knowledgeable and friendly, fairly priced, outstanding all the way around. I will take any work I have straight to A Certified while I am in town, and would not hesitate to recommend. Very happy to have found them!

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2017

Probably the best service I have ever experienced. Will definitely do business again.

by - Verified Customer December 03, 2017

They did a great job on my Truck, fixing and tuning it before a long trip. They fixed it fast and explained everything to my complete satisfaction. The bill was extremely reasonable considering the amount and speed of service provided! Excellent experience.

A to Z a surprisingly pleasant car repair experience. I highly recommend.

by - Verified Customer October 13, 2017

Did a very good job.

by - Verified Customer October 12, 2017

Great place close to work and speedy service.

by - Verified Customer September 07, 2017

Eddie and the staff were great. I had appraisals at other shops but they beat it not only in price but length of time it would take. Plus they are genuinely nice and caring people. Definitely my shop from here on out. Would recommend to anybody.

by - Verified Customer September 04, 2017

Eddie was great but my check engine light is back on so I hope I can get that resolved when I have time to swing by.

good job

by - Verified Customer July 18, 2017

Sandy and Chad were very upfront and ommunicative about the work that was going to be done, how long it would take and cost. They were very nice!

by - Verified Customer June 15, 2017

They are very good with their customers.

by - Verified Customer June 14, 2017

Work was good. A scuff mark was left on the rear bumper. Lot too small and cramped.

by - Verified Customer June 12, 2017


by - Verified Customer May 29, 2017

Autowork was able to work on my car at short notice. They were fast, reliable, and explained the process.

by - Verified Customer May 22, 2017

My battery died, they performed tests to verify it was the battery (and there wasn't a drain). Replaced battery within the day. Very satisfied.

by - Verified Customer May 16, 2017

They were absolutely fantastic! All the employees were sooooooo nice. My car is running great. I am definitely recommending everyone to come here. Great experience.

by - Verified Customer May 12, 2017

I have been taking my car here since 2010. Because they know I transport kids in my car, I feel they go beyond 'the call of duty' to care for my car. I even have my son using their service. Being a female, it's great to take your car to a shop and know you are guided to what needs to be done and not being taken advantage of. Highly recommend A - Certified Autoworks!

by - Verified Customer May 05, 2017

Great work as usual and the problem was fixed. Just was pressured to do all suggested repairs or 'pick up the car.' I thought I would just take care of replacing the tires myself. Found out later tires were ordered before I authorized the replacement. Although this was a minor issue, just didn't appreciate the method. Still happy with the service. The car is running much better!

The best mechanic shop in town with the best specialists.

by - Verified Customer March 12, 2017

I've been patronizing this shop for a year now and I wouldn't go anywhere else. They're honest, fast and make sure that you're completely satisfied.

by - Verified Customer March 09, 2017

Friendly staff, welcoming atmosphere. My car was fixed in less time than they told me. Still need more repairs but they did not pressure me into fixing it right away.

by - Verified Customer January 15, 2017

We will be back!

by - Verified Customer January 13, 2017

by - Verified Customer January 11, 2017

Will only take my car and my son's car here. I've experienced many years of consistant excellent service.

by - Verified Customer January 04, 2017

The guys did a great repair at a fair price. They talked me through the issue and were willing to work with my circumstances.

by - Verified Customer January 03, 2017

Very knowledgeable mechanic. Very welcoming shop. Excellent service.

by - Verified Customer December 28, 2016

Chad and his father are both fair, kind and courteous.

by - Verified Customer December 21, 2016

The shop used the wrong key to start my vehicle and ultimately assumed it was a bad ignition switch.
As a result I was without my vehicle for the Christmas Holiday weekend.While trying to fix their mistake, the ended up replacing my starter without telling me. Because they tampered with my ignition switch, I believe they damaged my starter in the process and replaced the starter after the fact. The shop did not offer to compensate me for their mistake and over charged me for the work they performed.

I appreciated that the garage stayed open after closing hours and waited for me to pick up my car. Couldn't leave work early so I had to come late. Very nice of them.

by - Verified Customer December 05, 2016

Great shop that I would recommend !

by - Verified Customer November 30, 2016

Good place!

by - Verified Customer November 29, 2016

Amazing work!

by - Verified Customer November 29, 2016

I took a used Toyota Corolla for a pre-purchase inspection. The owner gave me a 10% discount on my invoice and they inspected my car quick and efficiently. Gave me a written report with recommendations and treated me very respectfully. I will definitively recommend this shop to anyone.

by - Verified Customer November 22, 2016

Excellent service! Have been going there since 2009. Many of my friends service their cars at Certified Autoworker based on my recommendation and all of them are extremely satisfied, too.

by - Verified Customer November 20, 2016

Car inspected.. Was done quickly and had a great experience.

by - Verified Customer November 14, 2016

Love this shop. They are the most honest and respectful I've ever dealt with. I consider them like family at this point.

by - Verified Customer November 09, 2016

Good experience nothing to complain about.

by - Verified Customer November 04, 2016

They forgot to tighten the front lug nuts to the appropriate foot/pounds therefore resulting in me driving around, without my knowledge, with loose lug nuts for 2+ weeks! They were so loose I could tighten them with my hand. what was really scary is that the front right rim almost flew off when I was driving on the freeway! Because of their mistake I was forced into a dangerous situation and was forced to buy the appropriate tool to tighten the lug nuts myself. Needless to say I will never go to that shop again, nor will I recommend it to anyone.

Service was adequate, but they did "up-sell" me.

They did a great job on the repairs.

Great relations and service. I like Eddie's honesty.

by - Verified Customer February 24, 2015

The team of A Certified Autowork, from the owners Eddie and Chad to their employees, are amazing. They go above and beyond their work to make sure that their clients are happy when they leave the shop. I have been going there ever since I bought my Audi and I always leave extremely happy with their service.

by January 30, 2015

Prices Seem High. Final price was drastically higher than quoted price because of "labor".

by - Verified Customer January 27, 2015

Perfection does not exist, but this shop gets close.

by - Verified Customer January 26, 2015

They do good work but are a little bit pricey.
