Family owned shop. Professional and offers a warranty on work. Explains things and gives you the broken parts that were replaced.

by - Verified Customer April 12, 2017

It was fine. The car wasn't ready like they told me so that was frustrating. But the positive is they paid my Uber to and from my house to their shop, so that was a nice perk.

Everyone was super nice. All the workers explained the things I did not understand that was wrong with my car.

I was referred by George Willis and I couldn't wait to thank him for my exceptional service. I was so shocked that my car was impeccably cleaned inside and out when I picked it up. I am totally grateful for the honest work that was performed. I was treated with genuine respect at Centric Auto Repair and I will most definitely be recommending Centric to my friends, family, and business associates. KUDOS!!

They considered and we discussed the various options for repair. They listened to our concerns and repaired the car as discussed on budget. They have a clean well maintained shop with friendly people.

Victor tells you what could be done on your car, but there's no high pressure tactics that you get at other places. He's honest about what needs to be done, or what can wait until later.

This is my second service at this mechanic shop. I appreciate the manner of communication, the details they supply about the needs of my vehicle. Their work appears dependable and trustworthy. The fact they they return my car washed and clean is also a big plus.

You have added on to the stress in my life by doing me the so called favor and not keeping a record of the work performed on my car now I don't feel right with GOD by not paying my dues which neither of us know what I owe. GOD says to pay all that I owe, and it's not so easy without knowing the exact amount I owe. I love the work you do for my car, but not being right with GOD kills me. Happy new year!

Courtesy, thoroughness and price.

by - Verified Customer November 24, 2013

The owner is very friendly and professional. A waiting area with refreshments would be nice. Not all of the staff come off as nice and friendly as the owner, however I believe these maybe service technicians not trained in creating a friendly and welcoming environment.

This is the best Auto Repair service I have ever received, usually most places take advantage of women who lack automotive knowledge, at Centric Auto Repair the prices are fair and the staff is OUTSTANDING. I am definitely going to tell my friends especially females about Centric Auto Repair. Thank you Mr. Banuelos and staff for your kindness and outstanding Customer Service.

I didn't get the problem I had with the car fixed. They weren't working in my best interest. I didn't get what I paid for.

by - Verified Customer October 24, 2013

They did very well, but I normally just don't go out and promote businesses. Other than that they did a really good job. Their staff was friendly.
