Lee said the front desk was very unfriendly and blunt. Their attitude about his business reflected that they could take it or leave it. He was quoted a price of $60 which came out to be $100 for the same repairs needed on the vehicle. He chose not to use them.

Lee said he was told by the front desk staff he would be charged $68 out of the door, but it ended up being almost $100. Lee said he was told he would be charged $68 out the door by the front desk staff who was unfriendly. He ended up being charged almost $100 for a new fuel filter instead of the $68.

In regards to your comment on the cost of installing your customer supplied fuel filter.  We quoted you 81.74 to install it.  The additional charges were state fees and taxes.  I very sorry you feel that we treat you unfairly.

False information
The front desk lady is just as rude as can be....and didnt get any help what so ever! Just a waste of time.... They said it was something that needed to be replaced before i got any work done and that wasnt even the issue...stop lying to your customers!

You came in with a complaint of vibration at 45mph and shake until you stop. You stated  that you rebuilt the front end and had another shop balance the tires and do an alignment. Still had same problem and then came to us.We drove the truck and did a free front end check at no charge. Advised you you had uneven tire wear that might possibly causing the vibration. Also advised you to start by possibly replacing the tires.
You got upset at what we advised said you were going to take it to yet another shop to have it looked at. Got in your truck and peeled out the driveway.  Maybe if another shop tells you the same thing you might believe what we said.  Please keep us informed as we would like to see what someone else had to say.

Did not like the way the technicians treat the customers.
I left the shop and won't return because the mechanic was unable to repair my truck due to not having the part in stock. When I was ready to leave the mechanic was very upset because I didnt leave my truck over night to wait for the part. He also did not put my shift cable back the way it was when I first arrived to the shop. I don't like when people get upset if a person decides to come back the next day to get their vehicle fixed.

Didn't do what they were asked
This is the second time I brought my vehicle here to have minor services done. Both times, when I picked it up, all that they had performed was an oil change, and not the other services that I specifically requested and that they "recommended". Then, they told me that I needed major maintenance done right then. I said no, went to a different, more trustworthy mechanic, who told me that I simply needed a fluid refill. They constantly try to sell me items I don't need and push so hard to make an unnecessary sale that I will never take my vehicle here again. Our entire family has been coming here for a long time and we have all experienced terrible service recently and none of us will use this store.

Cyndi said she has spoken to Jim, at this business, about her experience but nothing has been done. She will not know until she has to return to them in the future. She explained to them that it would be faster for them to send someone to get the parts. She likes everyone there because they are very conscientious but there was no excuse for her to have to sit for 3 hours waiting for a part to be delivered.

Simon,

We're very sorry that your recent visit was anything less then perfect. We strive to give the best service possible on every vehicle every time. As mentioned to you during your last visit we would welcome the opportunity to take you out to your vehicle while it is in the service bay to show and discuss all of the vehicle recommendations that we have made. We never want a customer to leave not understanding what is going on with their vehicle. When it comes to parts pricing we understand that customers can shop on their own for parts and some even purchase their own parts for us to install. With the age of the internet a cheaper price can almost always be found somewhere but we do our very best to provide a top quality part at a fair price that we can place a 2 year / 24,000 mile warranty on. Thats something the cheaper internet or whole sale parts don't measure up to. Again we're very sorry you are unhappy with your recent visit and we would love the chance to go over everything in detail and once again earn your business.

Jim, Kathy and The Best Choice Team

Brenda,

Thank you so much for taking the time to speak with us and go over in detail any concerns Luther may have had. We're glad we could go over everything again in detail and hope he has a better understanding of the work performed by our master certified tech and the nationwide 2 year warranty backing the work completed. You've been a very loyal customer for many years and we can never thank you enough for that. We really appreciate your loyalty and continued business. We have also scheduled your requested appointment for this coming Friday.

Almost Perfect
The service was good. Service advisors are great. Even when I needed a radiator hose replaced, my Jeep was done in the time period they estimated. Because it might take longer than estimated, I was offered a ride home. After discussion, I declined. Only problem was that I asked them to put an oil additive in and, apparently, the normal amount of oil was put into my Jeep as well, leading the crankcase to be overfull. Since there is a warning in the owners manual and on the dipstick (Do not overfill), at home I drained the oil out until it got "down" to the full mark. FYI: I always check the oil level after and oil change. I have used other shops, including our local Jeep dealerships, and it is not unusual to find the oil overfull after an oil change. Sad but true. I still like Best Choice Auto Care and will continue my relationship with them.

Emergency Cable
Based upon my appointment I was able to get my vehicle right in. They were quick in contacting me with their initial examination results, which was an honest evaluation. They fixed one issue, and because of a time constraint on my part, they fixed the 2nd issue as quickly as possible. Although my first time there, while waiting for my vehicle I observed several people come in that the receptionist knew on a first name basis, indicating that they were a returning customer. They offered me some suggestions to consider down the road to fix some potential issues with the vehicle based upon its age (15 yrs.). Would come back again.

My thoughts.
Bill stated all fluids topped off. Not so with the windshield fluid, almost empty. Also, oil status was not set to 100%.( had to get desk me to do it) Makes one wonder what else was not done. Hard to recommend to friend when these little things are not done. I will mark yes this time because I have been very pleased in the past.
Kathy, owner from Best Choice Auto Care and Muffler responded on 01/08/2018

Sorry we didn't refill your windshield washer fluid. We do not carry winter mix windshield washer fluid that will protect you for temperature 32 degrees and below.  We should have told you so.  I do apologize that we forgot to reset you oil light, but I believe Tom  took good care of the issue for you.
