Very nice. Great customer service.

by - Verified Customer November 21, 2017

Doug quoted me a fair price based on what my car needed vs what a competitor claim that I needed. He even installed a small part for me that I brought to the shop.

by - Verified Customer November 15, 2017

5 stars from the shops appearance, professional customer service, knowledge of recommendations to what to fix vs what I can wait on to handing the keys back over.

by - Verified Customer October 18, 2017

I was impressed how detailed the shop was with checking over my car. They told me I had an oil leak. They gave an estimated guess as to where they thought the leak was coming from. Which they were right.

by - Verified Customer October 18, 2017

I love the people at Security Auto truck. You're all awesome!

by - Verified Customer October 08, 2017

My starter died when I called and explained I was at work and had to have my truck back by noon, Doug Bach said he could make it happen. And that is exactlyWhat he did! I can't thank him enough for helping me out that day (8/22/17). AWSOME customer service. Thank you again

This was my first experience with Security Auto and Truck. I spoke with Doug and arranged my appointment with them the same day through RepairPal. I work two jobs and this place made me feel right at home. Completely understanding my situation and holding onto my car for a few weeks because I was so busy! I cannot thank them enough for their compassion and fairness. Thanks again for everything! My new place for sure!

by - Verified Customer August 21, 2017

Everyone was very friendly and explained the work that needed to be done.

I should have completed this review sooner but just like most got super busy. This has to be without a doubt the best automotive shop I've encountered and I've been to many in several states. I recommend Security Auto to everyone I see, I was promised my vehicle repaired on the following Monday but received it early on Friday, this place ROCKS!

Doug was very patient and understanding with me. Instead of having me pay a bunch of money to repair the car, he gave me the hard facts. It was junk, which I knew, but him being honest enough to tell me definitely earned respect from me. Greatly appreciated!

by - Verified Customer August 30, 2015

They were very thorough and gave me estimates of everything to be done before doing anything. I know several people that work there and I trust them at work and outside of work.

by - Verified Customer August 18, 2015

They fixed my car for like nine hundred dollars less than the dealer wanted to charge me. The offered to come get me and bring me back to work. They had my car done on time and didn't over charge me and all they are a very reasonable place. Very customer felt and very good.

I think they are way over priced.

by - Verified Customer May 18, 2015

I have had no complaints, any time I do work, there are no hidden fees, your bill is never more than projected. They email break downs so you can see your totals what they are. I have had to where I needed a ride, and they dropped it off to me, which was very nice. I have nothing but good things, they are polite, their office is actually clean. They also keep my vehicle inside.

As Dave stated, there could be multiple causes of the AC System blowing hot air. Without the proper equipment and training it is even more difficult to diagnose.Should you need it properly diagnosed, give us a call to schedule an appointment so tat we can get your AC back in working order.

How difficult is it to replace the starter?

I agree with the other shop. Hour to hour and a half. Not sure what obstructions you are going to find.

You have a weird case there. Not quite sure what is going on. We would have to look at it. See most people think we have a crystal ball and can say oh... this is the problem. Most cases now a days that's almost impossible. We would need to look and see what was done. Did you check to see if you didn't knock anything off? Give us a call and we can get it towed in and checked out. 443-575-6641

To be honest there is nothing that comes to mind. We would have to have you stop by so we can hear what you are hearing. If the noise does not increase with the movement of the steering wheel then we will have to check further. We are at 4020 Old Washington Blvd 21227 off of Washington Blvd and Sulpher Spring road. Please give us a call and we can get you in. 443-575-6641

Sound like a electrical issue. Call our shop 443-575-6641 and we can have the tow truck come pick up the vehicle. Then we can go from there.

We would need the vehicle to see what is going on. Something like this is not easily diagnosed with a guess. There are no common problems that are out there.
battt want dead radio stop working
The radio needs to be pulled. There is a code printed in the body of the radio. Then the code needs to be inputted into the radio.

Here at Security Auto and Truck we always recommend having a reputable repair shop look over any car before purchase. The check engine light can come on for more than 2400 reasons. Auto Zone will get you the codes but will not tell you what the problem is. Just because there are codes does not necessarily mean that that is the problem. Further diagnosis needs to be done. I agree with the reply above. 1st check the oil level. If that is OK then you need to have the oil pressure checked. Question for you, is the engine making noise when the oil light comes on? If it does not then you could have a faulty sensor. We would love to look at it for you. Give us a call 443-575-6641.
