At first the owner seemed a little grumpy, but he got better. Otherwise I felt that my car was in good hands.

He rushed to leave the shop when I was picking up the car and pointed out the engine still wasny running right. The engine light came right back on and they did not offer to rediagnose the original problem or make it right or make it better.

Scott, we did indeed offer to continue diagnosing your car, you did not want to leave it as you needed to use it to drive for UBER so you could earn money to fix it. You then called us and told us you were going to take it to a shop near your home. There were multiple problems on the car and we did the best we could to meet your schedule and get it running so you could hit the road and get back to work. As you arrived for pickup AFTER closing time and I had to get somewhere we may have been a little rushed, I apologize for that. Please contact us to discuss this if you wish.

Quality of service was great but timeliness was not. Made a 9am appointment for an hourlong inspection, when I got there i had to wait 45 mins for the inspection to start b/c cars were taking up all the lifts and space. Quality and price were fine, but if you know someone is coming at 9am (or you tell them you can do the work at 9am) you should have space ready for them. I had to cancel a meeting b/c the car was ready an hour late given the space issue.

Aviva, I apologize for the fact that w3 could not get to your car quickly enough. The 9am appointment guarantees that we will look at your car, but not necessarily at that exact time. Just like in a restaurant when you have a reservation you may have to wait while the previous customer lingers over coffee, sometimes the jobs that are in the shop take longer than we planned on. I try to be clear that even with an appointment we may not get to you immediately. We prioritized getting a lift open so we could get your car inspected as quickly as possible. Once again, my apologies.

I took my 07 Jeep Wrangler in to get some off-road lights wired up, as well as my new headlights installed. Gary was super friendly when I first walked in, and great with keeping me updated along the way. He gave me a couple heads up that the work was going to take a little longer, and when I showed up to pick up, he walked me through what they had done and the end result. Lights look great, and I will be back again.

Being able to bring a car that we are considering purchasing in for a diagnostic for $90 is a great value and a great service. Appreciate the whole process, even the seller being involved if they so choose. All around good stuff, thank you Gary and team.
