Bought a new tire. Done right time and at price quoted

by - Verified Customer August 29, 2017

Everything went great. Better than expected. Price was lower than quoted. Very happy with the shop. I will be going there for all work from now on.

by - Verified Customer August 24, 2017

I had an issue with my tire pressure and the gentleman at the counter listened to my problem and ensured that my car would be diagnosed properly. After the diagnosis, he gave me a fair estimate in terms of what it would cost to replace, and the estimated wait time would be 30-45 minutes. I was out of there in about an hour with my tire issue fixed for less than $40.

by - Verified Customer August 09, 2017

Kar Care always does an excellent job with my car. They are trustworthy, knowledgable and treat me with utmost respect every single time!

More than fair than what I expected!

by - Verified Customer July 22, 2016

I was kept informed throughout. When it was evident that my repair would take a long time, Ken the owner, helped me with a loaner. As a single Mom, it was a BIG deal to be able to get the kids to and from school without having to worry.

by - Verified Customer May 15, 2016

Needed to replace the front CV axle joints on my car. Their initial estimate was higher then the estimate from another shop, but they did match it. I had a written estimate from the other shop. The repair work required about 3 hrs of work. I made an appointment for the day and time, dropped my car off and was ready to be picked up by the end of 3hrs.

by - Verified Customer May 12, 2016

Just wanted an eval of my cars condition.
