Radiator service

Your car's radiator performs an essential function: preventing your car's engine from overheating. Maintaining your vehicle's radiators, including filling radiator fluid or anti-freeze when low, getting regular radiator flushes, and repairing any damage to the radiator, can help your car running better longer.

Reasonable price and quick appointment. The service took 30 minutes and was professionally completed. I priced it at 3 car service shops and one needed the car all day to give me an estimate. One estimate was $100.

estimated $60.00 including the anti-freeze.

The car is a 1991 Oldsmobile that had suddenly stopped running. Precision was called and they had it towed to their shop. The estimate was given and approved because the car belongs to my grandson and he needed it to get to school and work. The car ran great for two days after the work was completed. Then it started knocking and smoking. Finally on the 4th day after the completed repairs, the car stopped running again. It was towed back to Precision. They said that there was an oil leak (which it did not have before they had it). They blamed the smoking on the radiator (which was brand new). They also wouldn't even honor the free towing they offer if they do the repairs to your vehicle. A call to the owner was fruitless. He out right lied and said he had told my grandson that there was an oil leak. Since I was there when the car was picked up, I know for a fact that he actually only asked my grandson if there had been any other problems. He was answered in the negative.

i went in for an oil change, there was a diagnostic service rendered at my cost. "I needed it", they told me what was going on with my vehicle, gave me an itemized listing by priority and the pricing was huge, and they fixed exactly what they said. I will be coming back for all my services

When I arrived and asked about having an oil change and they told me about a special that they had going on without me asking! I was right out of the gate pretty happy with that.

They did a check on my entire car and not only told me about some issues but showed and proved to me that they were issues - not used to that! I was told how soon the repairs should be considered so that I could budget accordingly without a hard sale at all - not sued to that. One of the issues which they had marked as yellow (keep an eye on), we discussed further and when I mentioned that I'd have to save up, without a hard push, they mentioned they had 0% interest options for six months!

A couple of the smaller items that was mentioned, they fixed without charge - astonished by that!

I was impressed with the professionalism and the friendly manner. I felt like I have a much better idea of my cars issues, the importance of what needs to be done when and all this without a scary hard sale.

I chose this shop from previous experience, but it was not on the insurance company's recommended list.
Some time after the work was completed in March 2012 the front end of the car tore loose when it was backed out of a parking place. An '01 Chrysler 300M is a low car, but there had been many

scrapes before the repairs and no damage was done other than scratch

under the bumper.
Mr.

had all kinds of excuses as to why the front end tore. He claimed the car must have had another accident and been worked on by someone else. Not true! Then he claimed he has 40 some years experience and there was a

that snagged the bumper. There wasn't!
Three other auto body men have told us the front bumper was not secured properly with all the braces and clips it should have had.
Mr.
San Luis Obispo Car Radiator Shops Provider Name Locked
refuses to acknowledge the work was not done right. He said he'd "work with me," meaning he wanted more money to replace the front end again.
He told me to go back to the insurance company, but his shop was not on their recommended list.
I was honest with him when I brought the car and the insurance check. I told him I had done more damage since the estimate and paid him the difference. Then he got more money from the insurance company running the job up to $ 4,000.
I haven't complained about the shabby looking grill on the front end he installed.
I finally told him if I have to pay more to get it fixed, I'm not spending it with him. So now I ride around with a sagging, torn front bumper and I'd like to letter his name on it for all to see!
Since I last talked to him I've had to replace the radiator. The radiator shop said it was new in 2012 and they don't know why it failed so soon.

Purchased a new Camaro ZL1 convertible in late April of 2013 and the car is amazing. The experience of

, however, was not. Once the down payment was made, the dealership was nowhere to be found, the sales woman,

, with whom I worked with was not knowledgeable about the car and gave me untrue information regarding features on the car. On 2 occasions when I was asking for some options to be included,
San Luis Obispo Car Radiator Shops Provider Name Locked
told me not to get the because they were “ghetto”.
I had a few questions to be answered after the down-payment was made; my emails and calls to her went unanswered. I waited days for a response but to no avail, I finally had to speak to another sales person to get any sort of response which was just as frustrating. I threatened to cancel my car order on 2 occasions and both times they finally acted like they cared.
It’s been 17 months since I purchased the Camaro ZL1 Convertible and have had to bring the car in for repair 4 times due to the Tire Pressure Monitor System,

I do not want “very real possibilities” when there is something wrong with my car that is still under warranty, I want facts.
