They performed a transmission flush, on time and politely.

Diagnosis for car was off. All it needed was spark plugs, not wires or by pass cylinder work.

Performed a great job. Spent a great deal of time finding parts. Thanks

by - Verified Customer May 23, 2017

The workmanship was satisfactory. Cost was expected. My only concern that I reported was oily foot prints on my floor mat. I will continue to do business with Sparks. I like their service and friendliness.

Sparks was really nice and, as a Costco Member, services were discounted. They were able to keep the price in my budget upon completion. They also were able to get a special order part from one of their vendors while I waited.

Good service and good experience. I'll probably continue to check up my truck here again soon.

I came in to get a strange noise checked out, one of your employees offered to ride around the block with me to listen to the noise. So we rode around for at least 10 minutes until the noise finally presented itself. I have an appointment to get the wheel bearings fixed next week. This place is great!

My experience at Sparks has always been beyond satisfactory. However, my car still stalls on occasion, including recently while pulling hard up one of the steep hills in my Tacoma. So something is still not right.

by - Verified Customer April 17, 2017

I was impressed that there was no wait time. The work began almost immediately and was quickly completed. Other problems was found but can wait until I bring it in for regular servicing. Always great doing business with you.

I wish that I would have started using Sparks Auto Care for my car care needs much sooner. I have had several brake jobs done on my vehicle by other local shops with not the best results. Sparks has done the best brake work that I have ever had done on my car!

by - Verified Customer April 12, 2017

This was the second time I have taken a vehicle to this shop and was originally misquoted the cost of the repairs. If someone does now know what they are talking about they should not be giving quotes. In addition I believe the cost of labor was extreme. I will not be going back to this shop.

I had a maintenance coupon, and I knew I needed oil and filter change, etc. The only surprise was that they said I needed to add $20 because I had a Prius and it took different oil. I have no way of knowing if that is accurate, but had never heard that before. So that was a little disappointing. The actual work was fine.

It is good to deal with folks, face to face, who are knowledgeable and professional.

Sparks gives the customer great service and their expertise about the cars they are working on is "top notch." They serve great coffee in the waiting area as well!

I brought my jeep into the shop to get a noise that was coming from the left rear tire checked out. The brake caliper and pad needed to be replaced however, in doing so the wire harness in sensor were corrupted. Several days later after new symptoms would not go away I took my Jeep back and they made the repairs necessary at no cost.

I was told about an oil leak and immediately I became suspicious. I didn't have further work done on it and am hopeful this problem is not serious.

Completely satisfied with service and work were done. The staff at Sparks told me that they "worked for me" and they proved that by personally dealing with the warranty company to make sure that I got all the coverage for the repairs for which I had purchased not to mention the fast and excellent work they performed.

The day before a planned trip to Eastern Washington, we noticed a trail of coolant on the garage floor. We called Sparks (our preferred shop) and they said they could make time to get it in right away. They were true to their word and also did an A/C filter change at the same time. They have always been helpful and courteous, and I have recommended them to several family and friends in the past.

I went in for a 2nd opinion on if i needed a timing belt/timing chain other than that no work was really needed however Marcello took care of me made me feel comfortable & he felt he had the best intentions for me & my car. I understand however he's no longer employed at that establishment.

by - Verified Customer May 20, 2015

I dropped off my car after hours and wrote on the slip I thought it was the alternator. They charged me around $130 to do a diagnosis and then told me it was the battery. I think I paid around $300 for the battery and the “diagnosis”. After about three weeks, the same problem occurred. I brought it back and they said it was the alternator and it would cost about $500+ to fix. I told them I would do it myself. I did it in about 1 hour for about $110.
