The experience we had at Universal Auto Center was like non other we've had. They really have the 'Cadillac' approach to customer connection and gaining trust mastered. It's been a week since our vehicle was serviced and so far working great!

Great communication but was missing parts and car won't start 90% of the time and have requested they set up somewhere for it to get looked at (clutch was fixed and now it will only start if I push the clutch in 1/2 way and slowly all the way in or not at all and warning message says push clutch in when start engine) but no appointment has been made for me to have it looked at.

We truly apologize for this inconvenience, I have tried calling you multiple times with no avail.
I have spoken to your husband several times and has told me you are in a very remote spot and barely have any phone signal in your location. We both believe you have a bad/weak battery causing your car not to start. I have looked around your general demographic and found an authorized shop to help you. I will continue to reach out to you in hope to have some success. As always feel free to contact me at your leisure.

Universal auto care is the only place I will take my car for service. They always do an excellent job. They are reliable, professional, and I trust them to tell me what s wrong with my car and to fix it. There are not additional services or charges. David is my go to for anything related to all of our family cars.
