I went to

Dowagiac Tire Shops Provider Name Locked
2002. I always do the regular servicing in Nisan dealership service centers. They charged me about $ 5150 which I think is way high for the service they provided. After doing that my car again started to have some noise the very next day. They said will need to change exhaust gasket and for which they charged $ 140. To be sure that I am going to an wrong auto service center, I went there again after a month or so, as one of my tire had a nail and needed to be replaced. They gave me an estimate of ~ $550. This time I was wise. Any guess how much I spent in Costco for tire replacement? Total of $114. I will never go there again and will not recommend their service to anybody.

These guys earn consistent 5 stars because they work their butts off for your business. I came to him one morning needing new front shocks in a hurry and he accommodated on the spot. Not because he wasn't busy, because the garage was packed wall to wall with broken vehicles. He just wanted to make a customer happy -- and he did. It might be a bit pricey, but the quality and customer service is out of this world. I have since sold the truck, but will continue to tell everyone of his awesome service!

These people way exceeded my expectations.
Wheel alignment for $79 ($84 at Pep Boys, $249 at Mini Dealer).
Checked spare for free. They said the spare was OK; the Mini dealer said I needed a new one and it would cost over $200.
Tire rotation was $50 at the Mini dealer, $10 at Pep Boys and Firestone did it for free.
The Mini dealer said that a new rim would be $360 or so and that would include a little black cap in the middle of rim that said "Mini." I picked up the car from the dealer. No cap & the Service Provider said that after he gave me the quote he found out that the cap was $38. I didn't buy it. (He didn't mention this until I got home and called him about this.) I took my car home from Firestone and they had put a black Mini cap on the rim for free. They didn't even tell me about it.

I went in for a more immediate issue with my AC, but ended doing a ton of other work after realizing how friendly, efficient, and professional the staff were. Best of all, they were reasonably priced. We just moved from DC. The Firestone Auto Repair in MD had quoted us over $2,000 for the tune up and timing belt replacement. So, I was very pleased to pay less than half of what we were quoted in DC for more.

I took the truck in on Saturday and tried to get a rotate and balance and was told they were full the rest of the day. I totally understood that. The sales person said I could come back tomorrow morning, first thing they could take care of me.
The next day I got there when they opened at 9. I let the sales person know I needed a rotate and balance and he then told me if I was prepared to wait for an extended period of time. I was then showed the monitor where he showed me the cars that were scheduled and he said "do you see those cars, they are all in front of you". (there were 3 of them) I then told him that I came when they opened based on the other sale persons direction. He then said "that person won't work here any longer." He then took my key, didn't say anything and pulled my truck into the garage. He did say "have a seat or anything." He just walked away.
No ticket was opened or anything and then after 25 minutes the truck the ready. The sales person never came back or anything to check me out. The technician came to me and asked if I drove the Nissan pickup truck. I said yes and he gave me the key and said thank you.
I have never been treated that rude before. That is my second bad experience there as it seems like they don't won't to honor the free lifetime balance and rotate when you by tires there. I won't go back.

On June 27, 2014 I went to the
Dowagiac Tire Shops Provider Name Locked
store located
at 841 Lithia Pinecrest Rd,
Dowagiac Tire Shops Provider Name Locked
, FL and had four new tires put on my Acura
TL invoice. When I picked up my vehicle the cashier/manager told me
that I needed to replace the lower control arm bushing and it is also noted on
my receipt. ...More /> Shortly after the tire installation, I took my vehicle to my regular garage for a
routine service and I asked them to check the control arm
bushings as noted by
Dowagiac Tire Shops Provider Name Locked
's manager. It should be noted that this garage has a stellar reputation and professionally trained mechanics. They are a BBB and
Angie’s List “A” rated garage and I trust them without question for all my
service and repair work. That being stated they inspected the control arm
bushings and found no problems and verified there are in good working order.
I find this very disturbing that a company manager would
note a problem on my vehicle where none exists in a rather blatant attempt to
get me to pay for additional service. This does not include the attempt to get
me to pay for things like a battery terminal cleaning or fuel system service
which I am sure amounts to dumping a can of injector cleaner in the gas tank.
It is these types of subtle deceptive practices that get a low rating and
I pity anyone who lacks the basic automotive knowledge to be
taken advantage of in this way by these same practices.

I went in at about 3 in the afternoon and just beat the rush. We discussed what I wanted and then walked to my car to make sure of the size I needed. He took my keys and drove it into the shop and I went in to the cool and comfortable lobby. Facilities, which I did not need, were available. I sat down and started reading the latest 'Car and Driver' magazine.
About 30 minutes into the magazine my name was called.
Dowagiac Tire Shops Provider Name Locked
was at the entrance with my car. He gave me my keys and explained that he couldn't reset the computer for tire pressure because he didn't have the key fob. Not knowing what a key fob was I pulled out my other set on the keyless entry. He took that and activated the computer, then went around to all of the wheels and reset the pressure sensors, shook my hand and wished me a good day.
I was amazed at how good the car rode and handled. It was truly better than new to the feel. The tire choice was excellent and I am pleased.

. Engine light came on and engine died. Towed to
Dowagiac Tire Shops Provider Name Locked
on Rancho. I did let the guy now that I wasnt in a hurry. He called me to tell me the engine barrings were shot. About 6,000.00 to put a engine in. Car is a 97 with 185000 miles. Being retired I don't drive it that much. Stor and back. Maybe around town. So $6000.00 wasn't going to happen. So some time later they told me that maybe a Catalytic converter. He said that he would try to save me money but had to get it from L.A. A used one for $700.00 I thought that was a bit strange having to get it from LA. The bad thing about all of this is one week, two weeks went by wi9thout hearing from them. Any way that car stayed ther for 6 weeks without anything not being done and I always had to call them for a update. Sorry for the long story but

After about 2 hours, they said the work was done, and that the tires were getting close to needing replacement. They didn't charge me anything. The next day, I had a low tire pressure indication at the same tire location as before. We stopped by, and they put air in the tire, and said to come back if the tire didn't hold air. A few days later, we got the low pressure indication again and took it in again. They said there was a screw in the tire and repaired it. When I got home, I inspected the tires more closely, and discovered they had never rotated the tires as I had requested (there's an obvious difference in the tread depth). That meant they probably also never repaired the tire with the screw in it the first time. There may have been a misunderstanding between two parts of the shop, but I wasn't impressed with their interaction with me in the front office, so I don't feel like taking a

on dealing with them further.
