Courteous and cute!

by - Verified Customer October 16, 2017

Gary was very up front and honest as to what my vehicle needed in order to drive safely. He recommended the proper tires without trying to upsell me on the most expensive tires.
Thanks, Gary

Gary was great. He was friendly, courteous and answered all my questions.

by - Verified Customer January 11, 2017

I had an oil leak and took my vehicle in for inspection. It was first determined that it was an oil pan drain plug that was causing the leak. After two trips to Christie Auto and oil dripping on my garage floor, it was determined that cause was the oil filter housing that was damaged. New one cost $78.48 which I found quite high for a part that online was at $38.48 but had to wait three to five days for delivery. I could not wait therefore I decided to proceed with the repair. Overall, I am satisfied with service that Christie Auto provides and I appreciate the 10% discount for veterans. Gary, the shop manager, has always been very helpful and professional.

They seemed to know my car and that's all I'm interested in. They know what to do and how to do it. Their prices are reasonable and they do their repairs in a reasonable amount of time.

by - Verified Customer May 29, 2014

It is extremely hard to find the aftermarket tires for my car, every shop I called didn't have any but I called Christie's and they had them readily available.

They don't really have good customer service, the people working there don't have very good people skills. It seems that they have some off the wall people working there.

My husband and I both had cars that were dead in the water. We took it there and they took care of it right away. Their towing service is very convenient.

They gave me correct service. Another garage told me it would cost 2800 dollars. I took it to Christie's and they fixed it for 280 dollars. They were honest.

It was the second time we've used them. They did what they said they were going to do, charged reasonable rates, diagnosed the problem properly, informed us and then road tested it before they would give us the car back. Just a group of very nice people, Gary especially and John from the tow truck, they were nice from the first time we were in. They were prompt and very nice and laid my fears to rest about where we were going.

by - Verified Customer December 29, 2013

They said I had a hose leaking and they charged me for the hose. Then they said it wasn't the hose, it was the water pump. It cost me an extra 500 dollars. They should have diagnosed it right the first time.

I didn't get the exact price for the repairs, and they asked me to bring it back after three days for insurance purposes.

They did the job right and the customer service was good. It took less than an hour.

by - Verified Customer December 18, 2013

They replaced a starter which was standard work but it seemed very overpriced. Five days later on Christmas morning the starter went out and I had to be towed in to have it replaced. I was satisfied with the service but the part was bad that they put in where it went out in just five days. They were very pleasant and easy to work with.

There were very good and fast. Our car broke down and they picked us up.

by November 17, 2013

I had my car towed over there. I asked them to let me know what was wrong and what the charges would be. The antifreeze was leaking and they put some in. It drained all out. They overcharged for a fuel pump. They did things that did not need to be done. The bill should have been small but ended up being $600 and the car was still not fixed. I asked them the bring the car back to me and they said they could not. I got someone to get my car back to me. I found someone else to fix my car. They came and picked it up and returned it to me. They said a part had been put on wrong and that is why the antifreeze drained out. There were some fuses blown and they did not understand how that could have happened. They fixed what needed to be done to have the car run well. It was only $80. They also washed my car inside and out.

They did what I needed and quickly.

I took my truck to a different place to get something fixed and it broke and cost me 700 dollars, so then I went to Christies and it only cost me 75 dollars, they do quality work. The first time I went there I had a part that broke and would have cost me 4,000 dollars, but they re-welded the part and only charged me 600 dollars.

I am not happy. They did not do what they said they were going to do. It took a long time to get the work done that they did. I had to go somewhere else to have the work done that was needed.

They screwed me out of two thousand dollars and I got fired because they told me my car was going to be fixed in three days and it took three weeks. My car is still broken and they won't fix it even though it's their fault. There's too much to say, I could talk for hours on all the things they screwed up.

The service is very good, the machine they use for alignment wasn't working when I went in so they told me to come back to do the alignment.
