It is always a pleasure to do business with Signal employees. This visit did have some issues however. I dropped my car off on a Tues am for a pre trip check up and oil change. They didn't get to it on Tues so kept it overnight saying I would be a top priority on Wed. After a bit of phone tag, I was notified in the afternoon that a part needed replacing. At 4:00 I was called and told the wrong part had been delivered so my car would need to stay there another night. Finally on Thurs around noon, I was notified the car was ready I made my appt about 10 days ahead but felt that you were overbooked and other repairs were given priority over mine.

by - Verified Customer June 05, 2017

They were very respectful and friendly. However, they made somethings sound as if they needed to be fixed or it would be the end of the world, when in reality I had many more miles to go before it became truly necessary.

by - Verified Customer June 05, 2017

Prompt, respectful, courteous and generous.

I like this shop for work on my cars that I can't do myself or don't have time for. I plan on referring friends here.

Appreciative that I could come in without an appointment and still receive service!

by - Verified Customer May 30, 2017

Signal Garage was great. I unfortunately needed two large repair jobs done back to back, and both times they were explained well and handled quickly. My only critique is that they didn't call me to let me know when my car would be finished, but overall, 10/10 would recommend to a friend.

Top notch professionalism! From making the appointment to picking up my car and everything in between. Super friendly staff, and convenient to my place of work. I had an oil change but would also take my car here for any repairs it may need based on my experience!

by - Verified Customer May 16, 2017

I've been bringing my car to Signal Auto Garage for 5 years and recently moved to Saint Louis Park. They've treated me so well that I'll continue taking my car there even though it's now out of the way.

First timer, had a good experience and will be going back.

by - Verified Customer May 08, 2017

I mentioned a brake noise once before, and heard it again after this last fix, but I can't afford to bring it in just to look it over in case something is wrong, so it is a little frustrating not to be sure.

Super positive customer service experience! Looking forward to future car maintenance with Signal! Thank you :)

by - Verified Customer May 04, 2017

Everything was fine. A 100mi torque adjustment was suggested after tire rotate which I'd never heard of in decades of rotations. Probably makes sense, but inconvenient follow-up, timewise.

I am always greeted with a smile even when I swing by without an appointment to have my air pressure checked or a headlight replaced. I also appreciate the fact that the folks who work there talk to each other with respect and are eager to help each other. That tells me that Signal walks their talk not only with me, but with them. Always a pleasure, always!

by - Verified Customer April 30, 2017

Excellent work. I came in trying to figure out why my gas mileage was 7 mpg lower than it should. I thought it was one thing, they identified it (correctly) as another (brakes). The car runs well within the manufacturer MPG ratings now. THANK YOU!

They addressed the problems I identified and corrected a problem I was unaware of. The brakes needed new pads, rotors and caliper refurbishment. Signals is my neighborhood shop and for 5 years they have taken care of my vehicles. My Mazda now drives straight, true and quiet.

The Signal representative gave me a quote, the work was completed and even though more work was needed after further inspection they still stuck to their original quote! Needed to leave a car there over the weekend and they were very accommodating and flexible. I will definitely go back to Signal Garage Auto.

First without the tire was ruined, but the shop found out there is just a screw in it and they removed it and plugged it and fixed it quickly and cheaply, without trying to sell me anything else, it was greatly appreciated!

I have experienced the best possible service from Signal Garage. The staff is completely knowledgeable and skilled, friendly and totally helpful; the service is prompt and on time; the staff keeps me informed of the issues and helps me make decisions in an informed way with options, no pressure; and they are utterly honest about what needs to be done and what does not. I could not recommend them more highly, and I am most grateful for their service.

by March 24, 2014

They were polite, patient, conservative in the way they approached what to do/what item "X" would cost. They called me several times with information and cost estimates as the job progressed. Many businesses do not appreciate the value of customer service. But these folks do.

It's convenient for me, but on a couple of very critical fixes I have had to take the car back multiple times to get the job done correctly. One time I brought the car back twice complaining of a clunking noise after getting new tires only to discover myself that the lugs on one wheel were never tightened (3 of 5 completely fell off). Recently I had struts and a gas tank replaced. Had to take it back because gas tank wouldn't fill and I still have a clunking noise related to the strut I think that I was told simply not to worry about. But it still drives me crazy.

The service was friendly and courteous, but after taking my estimate to another mechanic for review, it was discovered that the estimate included double charging on a couple items as well as some estimated work that is almost twice the cost of the average estimate in the twin cities area. In short, double dipping and overpriced.
