The price was a bit high, but the quality was top notch so I can't complain. Nice, pleasant staff who run a clean, organized shop and get you taken care of quickly. Can't ask for much more than that. Many thanks to Blu.

I CAN ONLY SAY WHAT ALMOST EVERY OTHER PERSON WHO HAS REVIEWED BLUE AUTOMOTIVE HAS SAID. THE FRIENDLINESS AND COMPETENCE OF THE STAFF AT 'BLU' IMMEDIATELY STAND OUT AS BEING EXCEPTIONAL AMONG AUTO REPAIR BUSINESSES. THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS, TO SAY THE LEAST, ALSO RARELY SEEN IN OTHER BUSINESSES DOING THE SAME TYPE OF WORK. BLU AUTOMOTIVE CUSTOMER REPRESENTATIVES DO THEIR BEST TO MEET A CUSTOMER'S REQUESTS, FOR EXAMPLE, CONCERNS DEALING WITH SCHEDULING PROBLEMS. I ONLY WISH I HAD FOUND BLU AUTOMOTIVE YEARS AGO, BUT IT'S NEVER TOO LATE TO ENJOY THE PEACE OF MIND THAT IS PROVIDED BY A FIRST-RATE AUTO REPAIR FACILITY. AS A LAST WORD, I'LL MENTION THAT THE MECHANIC WHO LAST WORKED ON MY CAR AT 'BLU' CAME OUT AND GAVE ME A DETAILED EXPLANATION OF THE WORK WHICH HAD BEEN PERFORMED. THAT KIND OF ATTENTION IS MUCH APPRECIATED - AND ALL TOO RARE AT OTHER AUTO REPAIR SHOPS.

Questions Answered by Blu Automotive
My Car Cranks But Won't Start After Replacing The Battery on 2007 Nissan Pathfinder
Hi,
There can be several reasons a vehicle cranks and wont start after a jump start. I would start with checking the fuses, It may have blown a fuse during the jump start procedure. If you have a second key I would try that, it may have a problem with the vehicle recognizing the key. I would start with the two tips, thereafter if it does not solve the problem, I would have a qualified technician perform diagnostics.

What Could Cause My Serpentine Belt To Break Or Seize On My Engine
on 1998 Lexus GS400
There are several reasons a belt can break on your vehicle. Since you replaced the belt and alternator I would suspect a seized drive belt pulley or tensioner. Other possibilities can be that the pulleys that the drive belt rides on made be out of position causing the belt to bind and snap. I would recommend having a certified technician perform a thorough inspection of the drive belt system.
