"They're just very attentive to detail. Very customer friendly. They take pictures of all their work, so there is no lack of trust. They give me a ride home and pick me up. They go out of the way for the customer. They're just very likable. I know Bob and I go in there and talk to him like my neighbor. A good guy. I would highly recommend them."

The staff at this establishment went above & beyond to accommodate me & my vehicle's needs. The entire first experience with CarSmart was most satisfactory & I have recommended this establishment to several people thus far.

Not long ago I had work done there (quite a bit of work) and it was expensive. Every time I bring it back something else is wrong, nothing cheap, what a disappointment

Competent, courteous. I called before I went in to verify/ensure the the price quoted for tires was everything:mounting, balancing, etc. I was assured, yes...everything. But when I got invoice, I was charged a disposal fee. Should have told me the truth.
Verified Customer
I really trust Dan and his staff!

No Air Blowing Out Of The Center Vents In The Cabin (Works For Feet/Windshld) on 2003 Lexus RX300
Hi Cindy,
Do you have air flow from the drivers and passenger vents near the windows? Also, not to insult you, be sure the air flow wheels are turned on full for each vent not working. At that point it is time to have a certified technician inspect the condition.

Typically this type of noise is suspension related. However that is just a guess. It is important that a certified technician inspect your concern to find your problem.

The Car Died And Wont Start on 2008 Dodge Durango
Without additional details the first question is if it does not crank the battery, starting and charging system need diagnosing, if it does crank than determining whether it is a fuel or ignition problem is the next step
