The are so good that one has to book pretty far in advance to get in, but that's a minor inconvenience. Don't know how they handle "emergencies." Only been there 3 times, all good experiences except for the last. Had a headlamp replaced on my wife's car and discovered that it was not aligned properly later that evening. Had to bring it back in, but they got me in the next day and fixed it. Alignment should have been checked after the install. Not so minor inconvenience to have to bring it back in.

I have been coming to Tobias in Anthem for about 18 months. I was new to this area and was recommended to Tobias by my service provider in Cincinnati. I have had extensive service on my vehicle and have been extremely satisfied, until my last visit. There has been an extreme drop off in the front desk (Service Manager) position. The previous Service Manager (Mike) was one outstanding, car savvy, and customer service minded person. The new guy has miles to go to get anywhere close to the previous guy. My wife usually accompanies me to Tobias, we live 40 miles away, and she even commented about how the atmosphere has drastically changed for the worst. I am sure Randy will get this sorted out, but in the meantime customers like me will look elsewhere for our car preventative maintenance. My last experience, was terrible. I was assured when I made the appointment (one week prior to the service being done) that parts and materials would be available (otherwise I would not have accepted the appointment until parts an materials were available. Obviously the parts and materials to do my service were not there and I got no updates until I asked for a status, and was told at that time they were waiting on materials. This turned out to be a VERY LONG visit, and it is my last.

It's no better than any mechanic shop, but it's the only one near me. I'm never satisfied at Tobias, but I'm also not willing to drive further, so I settle.

They fixed my air conditioning when I was told before that this problem could not be fixed because the part was no longer available. They fixed my problem quickly and were extremely professional, courteous and reasonable in price. I will use them again and I highly recommend Tobias.

Questions Answered by Tobias' Automotive Specialist - Summit Walk
Your car is most likely equipped with individual zone control, in other words the passenger can set a temperature different than the driver's. Most likely cause is the door motor that controls the blend door on the driver's side but it could be wiring, an obstruction in the door itself or the controller. A qualified shop would be able to perform tests to determine the cause.
the Arizona standard is 4.0 and I received...
NoX is controlled by a few different components. The EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system is primarily responsible. It allows a controlled amount of exhaust to be reintroduced into the combustion chambers at specific times to reduce the cylinder temperatures. The EGR may be bad, plugged up, solenoid or computer may not be commanding it on. There may also be an excessive amount of carbon build up in the cylinders. These problems contribute to engine preignition or pinging which is the cause of NoX. Also, the catalytic converter plays a role. If the catalytic converter is worn it cannot burn the NoX it receives. It does take some specific equipment, information, and training to perform an accurate diagnosis.
