Jeovanny said he took his vehicle to get some repairs and something was broken while at the facility. Three days later, there was a lot of oil under the vehicle and he took it to his mechanic and was told that the axle boot was cut. He went back to this business and the lady at the front desk told him they were not responsible. She was very rude and was yelling at him.

Was given incorrect information
I was told incorrect information that caused me to go to another carshop to get my vehicle inspected. Because of this I had to pay more this year to inspect my vehicle

As per New York State law and inspection regulations - an inspector can not pass the vehicle if your headlight bulb doesn't work and if lights are missing.ย

Dishonest auto shop with unqualified mechanic.
Dishonest auto shop with unqualified mechanics.
I took my car which still has 45500 mile, for inspection and they came up with suggestions, costed > $1,550. I agreed. After day or so, They called me to came and pick up your car. I went and picked up my car. As soon as I turned on the car , I noticed my hazardous flasher light , dushboard light,and turn signal lights were not working. The mechanic supposed to fix the rear windshield wiper but instead of fixing he messed up with my car electric and wiring. When I asked them to fix their mistak, they started to give me rediculous reasons. I was disappointed and took my car to another mechanic and paid another $97 to fix those.

Too much
First, she told me you need a smoke test . I asked how much she said 85 $ . I told her no discount? She said flat rate, when I was going to pay she said 92$ because you are using a visa . I didn't want to waste my time I paid the fee but I will not come back

Disappointed
I've been coming here for years now and always had good experience. Audra always looked out for her customers, especially female customers. At my last two visits I see new people working there and don't see Audra. I'm told she still owns the place. My last visit I needed an inspection and was told I need about $800 worth of repairs, or I won't pass the inspection. I went to a different place and passed the inspection and was told those repairs were not needed. Very disappointed! I felt that I was in one of those places where they tell you that unless you pay big bucks, you're not passing the inspection. Didn't expect that to happen at Audra's shop where I've been coming for years.

Multiple
This visit was not one of the better visits. The service technician spilled some type of solution on my rear hatch door while replacing the rear wiper blade. He never wiped it clean and I am not sure he even noticed. The technician rested his tools on my vehicle without anything to protect the surface. My vehicle maintenance light was not reset after the oil change/service and both of my trip odometers were rest to zero. If there was an issue, someone should have called to ask how to get the odometer to display the main view. I use my trip odometers to track business miles. I had asked to have my splash guard re-attached to the underside and it was the 2nd visit where there was no mention of the tire pressure sensor warning light illuminated until I asked as I was leaving.
I always have a great experience with the office staff and have no concerns in that regard. This was the 2nd time in as many visits where things were not quite the way it had been handled in years past.

Alex said he has been to this business a total of three times. All for the doors on his vehicle. First the handle was replaced on the left side. The next time for the door on the right side. It needed a part replaced. It worked for about 2 or 3 weeks, then he returned for the same issue. The mechanic told him that the same part needed to be replaced. Not realizing that the same part was replaced during the last visit. He's skeptical of the service that was provided.

Bamboozled
I felt like I was bamboozled into getting the their highest priced oil change. I found out later that my little 2007 Honda Fit, with only 13,000 miles on it, didn't need that kind of oil that I was bamboozled into. And to think, I told the owner that I came there because I wanted to go to a place I could trust...So much for trust. I was taken advantage of!! I gave them one star because I had to, in order for my review to go through.

Alignment not done properly
Came in for a inspection and a wheel alignment. Also there was a ticking noise coming from the front right which ended up being the upper control arm needing to be replaced. So far so good. After waiting around 3 hours, we thought everything was done, turns out the mechanic forgot to do inspection...so another half an hour more. No biggie. So I get my car and start to drive home...but the alignment wasn't straight and now the car pulls the other way. Came back and waits another hour to do the alignment again because everyone is at lunch. After that was done u was told the car doesn't pull anymore. I left and the car still pulls right. After coming to you guys for so long a getting so much work done here I'm kinda disappointed to say the least. No sure I want to come back anymore.

The loss of Danny and Frank is extremely troubling
My annual inspection and the oil change were handled in the usual conscientious and professional manner that I am accustomed to. Although the gals behind the desk are doing an admirable job and the young mechanics are busily doing their best, the absence of Danny is a bit hit to the shop, in my opinion. Also, I notice an apparent separation between the Korean and non-Korean contingent, which would not have been tolerated with Danny around. I would strongly suggest that you attempt to bring Danny back... he is much more valuable, than you obviously believe. Would I recommend your shop to others? Before Danny (and Frank's) separation... a definite yes. As of today.... a definite wait and see attitude on my part. For what it is worth, I have over 20 year's experience as a help desk / support center turnaround specialist within the financial services industry.
