I was able to talk through issues over the phone, as well as pay, and have my partner pick up the car at the end of the day. Big issues needed to be taken care of in order for my car to pass inspection and they were able to handle it all in house during the day.

I took my car in for an oil change and a tire rotation and the service team looked at the entire car and found some areas that needed to be fixed/adjusted. They let me know what these areas were and the cost. They were able to take care of it all in a short period of time and the car has run well since.

Shirlington Shell is the ONLY repair shop I trust to work on my truck in the northern Virginia area. After years of searching for a place that does quality work from people I trust and finding nothing, I don't plan to take my business anywhere else. Shirlington Shell always goes the extra mile.

I have always used this shop & recommended it to my friend, who was very satisfied with the work as well as with the friendly personnel; also the mechanic who immediately knew what the problem was.

by - Verified Customer October 18, 2017

Great service as always. Minor problem in the wrap up of the service that required me to bring the vehicle back to remedy. No major issue but still added another trip to/from and car unavailable for a day.

I called ahead to see if I could check for a spot for tire rotation. They took my car immediately, called to explain an issue with the nuts on the wheel well, and they didn't charge me for the labor to fix the nuts, just the parts themselves. Incredibly friendly and expedient with their work and service.

It is evident they have a lot of repeat customers - people they know just from sight. I was told I had one item to be fixed (I was there for an inspection)... so I held my breath: my lightbulb had to be raised. As a woman I can't help but feel that a lot of garages take advantage of (my) ignorance related to cars. I didn't feel that way here and I plan to come back. Thanks, guys.

by - Verified Customer October 04, 2017

I have recently moved to the state and shopped around trying to find a car repair place. Its hard since I was kot familiar to the area and uou hope they wont take advantage of my situation. At Shell Trey was very pleasant and helpful. They did the repairs needed and helped me out with a rental car while they were being done. Picked my car up and they explained all that they fixed amd helped out with another issue (a squeaky noise or spring in back end) by ordering the correct part that another place installed. Just waiting for part to arrive and get it taken care of.

Seemed expensive compared to competitors. But prompt service and thorough review of other issue requiring attention. Disappointed to find that garage had partially reassembled access to cabin filter- left me with decision to waste time getting carback to shop or fix myself - elected to fix myself!

by - Verified Customer September 18, 2017

I had taken my car to a different shop who recommended an expensive fix, in the end Shirlington Shell helped me at a better rate and made sure that the parts that needed to be replaced were actually broken. If it's not broke don't fix it!

I arrived by 8 AM was 4th in line. I was told when the car should be ready. I ran some errands and was called about some minor but necessary issues. I authorized the work. I picked up the car on time. I was happy with the process.

by - Verified Customer September 13, 2017

The service is great, but the price was extremely high. The parts cost was triple what it was elsewhere. I only paid because I was stranded and they took advantage of that. Good work, but feel they took advantage of me.

I got my left and right outer tie rods replaced and new rotors and brakes on the front left and right. The left brake was rubbing on the rotor and I had to go back the next day to get it fixed. The owner texted me to make sure my car was fixed correctly but never replied. I guess the effort counts if there was no follow through? Other than that the price is right and the service is quick. I guess it is best to not take your car in on a Friday if you need to use your car on a Saturday when you need more than one item fixed.

Given one price, charged a much higher price, had to negotiate to the bare minimum of work promised, at a higher cost than the initial amount. Inquired why the change in price, two weeks later still waiting on an answer. Be cautious!

After the inspection I was told that a couple of light bulbs had burned out and needed to be replaced. I was completely satisfied with the service. I have been taking my cars to Shirlington shell for 13 or 14 years and they always treat me with respect and explain everything adequately and are polite and do great work.

It was fine, but they did ask me to get my transmission fluid flushed for $600, which I had already done the last time they asked me to 6 months ago. At the time I had it done, they said I needed to do it every few years, so I was confused as to why they would say I needed it after less than a year.

I brought my car in for safety inspection and was told I needed a costly brake replacement. I had just had my regular maintenance done 3 months prior at my regular service center. At that time, the report they gave me was that rear brakes were in excellent/new condition just a few thousand miles ago. I brought my car back into my regular service center and they confirmed the brakes were good and re-inspected my car. It passed. I was fortunate that I did not blindly listen to Shirlington Shell and waste nearly $1000. I am Out the money I paid for the inspection and the time it took to go to another inspection center. Very disappointed . I will be telling everyone I know in the neighborhood not to go there. Furthermore, my regular service center suggested I file a complaint with the VA state police safety division.

by - Verified Customer May 10, 2017

It was good. The only thing was my car was not ready as promised. I think this was due to communication issues--One person told me it would be ready at 8:30 am with a drop off at 7:30am--I dropped my car off extra early at 7 am just in case, come to find out no one even started working on my car until after 8 am, which made my car not ready until 9:30 am, an hour late. It might not seem much--but it cost me work pay on top of the car bill which I had been trying to avoid with dropping off my car early in the first place. Plus, what is the point of making an appointment, if my car is not going to be looked at until much later. I don't know how coworkers communicate--perhaps need better notes made in computer, or person taking the information should be asking when the customer needs their car back--but having been promised when making the appointment that my car would be ready at a certain time and then putting the onus on ME to REMIND THE EMPLOYEES is not optimal customer service. At any rate, that's my only critical review of the service at Shell. Otherwise, car service itself seems to have been done well. Thank you.

I recommend that when you provide estimates, you make sure that the consumer knows there are additional fees (e.g., 'supplies') and how much they might be. I recognize an estimate is an estimate but I was surprised by the fees addition on the invoice when it had not been mentioned as part of the estimate when I made the service appointment. On reflection and after reviewing prior invoices, Ron always included the 'supplies' amount in his estimate of the work to be done. He's not there now apparently but his practice should be copied and made routine.

I appreciated the time the staff gave me in patiently explaining the needed repairs. They also told me how pressing each repair was allowing me to do some, if not all, if I desired.

My experience at Shirlington Shell was a pleasant surprise. I went in for a safety inspection (walk in).Not only did they fit me in toward the end of the day. I also asked them to replace my air filter with the new one I had on the seat and I got a friendly smile saying "no problem". They were very pleasant and offered for me to wait or to call me when the car was done. Just yesterday I received a text from them thanking me for my patronage. I will definitely recommend them.

The owners and staff of this shop are incredibly knowledgeable and take pride in their work. They strive for excellence and provide the kind of personalized and friendly service that I didn't know still existed. I can't recommend them highly enough. My only recommendation is to make an appointment ahead of time because they are a community favorite and are generally very busy.

I dropped my car off here for my annual State Vehicle Inspection. The staff was very professional, attentive, and welcoming. They used an electronic registration form on a tablet, which I was able to complete in less than a minute. Afterward, they gave me the option of dropping off the car or waiting for it. They gave me an estimate of an hour so I walked home (I live less than a mile away) and waited. The car was ready within 5-10 minutes of the original estimated wait time. I walked over to pick it up. They provided me with a brief rundown of the service. I paid my bill and was on my way. A day or two later, the manager of the shop sent me a follow up text to let me know that if I needed anything else to bring the car back in. All in all, a very positive experience.
