Good Service.

by - Verified Customer November 30, 2015

I was charged for a new radiator which did not solve my problem. I sold the car and the new owner took it to another shop who found a leak in my "new" radiator and replaced it for a fraction of what I was charged by Resta's. I was charged over $500 a shop in NYC where the new owner takes his car did it for just over $200 and he has had no problems since. They were all pleasant and friendly and gave me a discount but once my problem returned I called back and received no apology, no promise of a discounted service to look at my car again or anything. Extremely disappointed.
