I was very satisfied with the courteous way I was treated and with the work done to my car. The price was fair and I will be returning in the future if my car needs further repairs.
The people there are friendly and respectful but unfortunately, my car was not fixed. The price for the diagnostic was in my opinion really high (200.00+) my car was not fixed so I had to take it a second time, they made me wait there instead of giving me a ride home and I was told that they SUSPECT the problem is the axel but they are not sure about it, so bottom line I paid 680.00 and my car is not fixed still so I am not very happy about it.

Ernesto, thank you for your feed back. Please let me add a little more information to paint an accurate picture. On your first visit you brought the vehicle in for engine over heating and a brake noise. We replaced the electric fan switch and the front brakes. We recommended replacing the axle cv joint to correct the front end vibration. You chose not the have the axle replaced. Therefor the vibration issue was not resolved by your choice. I apologize for the confusion.

My cruise control did not work after shop repaired brake lines.

Tyler returned his car to us and we replaced a micro-switch. That took care of the cruse control problem. We replaced the switch at no charge. Tyler thank you for your continued support.

Just paid for diagnosis. They did what I asked
Quick and easy fix. Always helpful.
They are always amazing and fair.
The shop was very accommodating and gave me a ride home.
I liked the waiting room and free water. It was nice to have that and feel comfortable. They were easy to find and communicate with.
very pleased with the quality of service and attention to detail.
Great service
I went in for a few inspections, fully expecting it to take an hour and a half but to my delight my car was actually done in 45 minutes and fully explained to me. Not to mention they were willing to fill out an additional form for the DMV and explain to me how to get my car registered. They went above and beyond and I have recommended their services to my friends.
It was great. They were nice and explained to me what was wrong with my car and explained how they were going to fix it.
Didn t really need all the diagnostics because kinda had a hunch what was going on with the car you guys did great, the diagnostics where good but not necessary but you guys where on time and had great customer service but I bought a junker for a low price hoping that I scored that did not happen so Thank certified auto for your help. I will be doing business with you guys in the future mainly because you guys are honest and you and your not trying to rip off your customers also thank you for not charging me for the emission test I thought that was awesome and I still think that s weird that mustang made a complete circle back to certified autos shop from 7 years ago. That s insane. Thank you Richard and Kieth you guys have been great also I like that shuttle service much appreciated. Have a blessed day
We have been going to Certified Automotive for our car repairs for several years. After they finish the diagnosis they call with a breakdown of the costs for approval before they proceed with any repair work. They never try to do a bait and switch and jack up the price once the work is started. If you are looking for an honest and competent car repair shop Certified Automotive is the place to go.
I felt respected and I felt like everything was explained to me I detail. Two things I really appreciate.
