"I was able to get an appointment very quickly when I called
's. They had the car done within a few hours. I have never had a bad experience" there. I use
's for all my car maintenance. They are very professional and reasonable with their prices.

"There was no issue with the service offered but with the charges they keep adding to my bill. They have what they call a customer pay shop charge. They notified" me that this is a charge for them to clean the shop rags and mechanic tools. I had this issue back in
and complained and was given a refund. I went back in March and was given this charge again. I have complained again and am being issued a refund. I just wanted others to know what this charge was for and don't think it should be on customers to pay this fee but should be part of their overhead. As far as the quality of the work they offer, it is good quality and I have no complaints about the work done, just with the billing practices. The refund must be processed through the national corporate office and can't be given directly from the dealership.

Car Inspecting reviews in Poway

It was a good visit. It took them a half hour to do the inspection and check up; they have wireless in their office for those customers who want to wait. They called me to remind me about my appointment and the people working at the desk were nice.

I went in for routine maintenance and my breaks were squeaking. HVAC system was clicking. They checked the problems and gave me an idea of what needs to be done and a minimum estimate. I am a return customer.

Said it would be an hour. Checked with them at an hour and five; said it would be 15 more. Checked with them in 25; said it would be 15 more. It was about 25 more. When I got my car back, it was obvious that someone had been smoking in it. Also, my car alarm wouldn't set. I informed the shop owner, who adjusted something under the hood; then the alarm worked again. Just overall creepy. I've just moved here; I trust you with my car; you have my address; and suddenly my alarm doesn't work. Totally creepy.

Honest and thorough They do a real good job with them. I have total confidence in their abilities and trustworthiness and their decisions to repair what needs to be repaired.

Several years ago when our children were young and money was tight I brought our Chevy Venture van in for some work. The van had several issues ranging from a water pump to a Body Control Module (BCM). The work was going to total over $1,000 which was really going to hurt at that time. After the work was completed the mechanic had good news to report. The BCM sometimes needs to be programed which incurs a $250 programing fee due to the expense of operating the equipment. Fortunately our BCM programed itself avoiding the $250 fee. Thank you

for being honest and holding yourselves to a higher standard. Any other automotive shop would have charges us the $250 fee regardless if they programed the BCM or not. Christian Bothers also works with a local church to help single mothers with car issues. Great owner that cares about the people in his community. Keep up the great work! You've got my business.

I'm not clear that they did anything. I eventually told them I had to get going and couldn't wait any longer. They then told me everything was done, although the car appeared as though no one touched it. I feel as though they lied and am not sure anyone actually looked at the car.

It went fine as always. They did a lot of work for me, all excellent, if a bit pricey.
BUT LISTEN: It looks like they have gone out of business, at least at the
