Very attentive. They listen to what you say. They are really good to diagnose and they are happy to double-check if you are still concerned. They actually picked up on a problem the dealer did not.

I think I did a couple things for an inspection, replaced a couple filters, I choose them because they are conveniently placed for people at the University of Rochester, the people have been polite and efficient. The prices are pretty much in line with what you usually find at car shops, not particularly cheap or expensive.

He is excellent. My parents have been taking cars there for twenty years and I have been taking my car there. He is better than a dealership for price. I trust him with my car.

They're very helpful, understanding and they were very nice. I felt comfortable taking my car there. Most of the time being a young female I don't know what I'm doing when it comes to cars and could get ripped off, but I felt comfortable being over there.

I think they do a good job. The service is nice. I just think they might have just made a huge mistake and spilled some oil on my engine.

Questions Answered by Clar's Elmwood Automotive
2014 Chevy Cruze Ls Won’T Start on 2014 Chevrolet Cruze
i would tow the car to a shop and have them check fuel lines, if no fuel is getting to the system and you have a leak then thats why. spark, ignition, and fuel is what starts a car. mechanics will use these common grounds when a vehicle comes in, be honest and tell the mechanic everything though so they can fully find your issues.
I Keep Changing Thermostat. Flushed The System. Car Still Runs Hot When Driving on 2011 Dodge Charger
or you have a blown head gasket. we went through this issues with a 2007 dodge nitro and we changed everything under the sun for overheating, thermostat, hoses, radiator and still same issues, had to send in for a motor to be rebuilt and send to engine shop and put the heads back together and redo all gaskets, so forth. it had a blown head gasket.
Just Got A Nail In My Tire And All The Tire Places Are Closed Today. What To Do? on 2016 Chevrolet Equinox
or go to autozone or a near by super center with a auto care isle and they will have tire repair plug kits. always good to keep one for times like these, cheap too.
Any Problems With The Timing Chain on 2010 Cadillac STS
ive done some research and it seems to little info on the timing chain issues with this particular year, make and model. so it would be safe to say they are not as common as the gmc terrains or equinox's are. if you have any other questions please feel free to send them on here.
