is completely awesome!! They provided me with an appraisal compliant with the uniform standards of professional appraisal practice (USPAP) for $320. Until I got this appraisal, the insurance company refused to give me a dime for the diminished value of my car, even though it was a 1-year old Infiniti that sustained $8,000 of collision damage, including frame and structural, in the accident. These guys make calls with you to the insurance company, and they stick with you until you have a check in your hand. I could not be more satisfied with their service, all at a very reasonable price!!

"As always the service I have received from
Chesapeake Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
was excellent. I spent over $1200 in services on Sunday 29 December 2014 and felt the services provided were worth the money.
I arrived at 0700hrs on Sunday 29 December 2013. There were approximately 5 cars ahead of mine. Within 5 minutes of arriving, a Service Department Representative had my car checked in and an estimate of work with my concerns being the first. My questions regarding the repairs were answered within the first hour of being there. I was expecting to have front brakes replaced, however the wear did not require them to be replaced.
The service department is always professional and helpful. I spent a significant amount of time waiting for my car to be serviced and detailed. The service representative,
Chesapeake Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
, advised me when I arrived that it would be a long wait due to the required services and requested interior/exterior detail. He offered the dealer shuttle while I was waiting. During my wait Mr.
Chesapeake Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
provided periodic updates on the services. He also advised me of options concerning the services. The detail department did an excellent job of bringing my 2010
Chesapeake Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
with 80,000 miles back to life. The car was cleaned from top to bottom. This was my first experience using the dealer detail department, but it is much better than local Wash/Wax services available. The waiting area was comfortable and clean. I was able to sit, watch football, and use the available WiFi.
Overall the total service took 7 hours on a busy Sunday. All repairs were accomplished and done well. The detail job was excellent. By comparison the tire package would have been $75 more anywhere else. After some research the closest price for all of the repairs would have been about $125 more expensive. Not bad for dealer work.

"I believe 30USD for PA safety and emission inspection is the best price you can find.
But….
They told me I have to replace my 4 tires to pass the inspection. I was not convinced.
In the beginning of 2013 the depth of tire is 6/32 and I only drove 4000 miles in one year. The minimum requirement to pass the inspection is 2/32....more /> And actually before this I drove my car to another body shop for PA inspection. It failed because of some of rusty of brake line and some arm bushing issues. The total cost is 800 USD. By the way, they waived the charge of inspection for me as I choose not to fix these issues. But they confirmed that the depth of tires is 4/32 and OK for another 10000 miles.
Compared to 800USD, finally I decided to choose
Chesapeake Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
to pay 500USD to replace 4 tires to pass the inspection.
Maybe I am wrong but I am not convinced that the tire needs to be replaced. If you have a second option, get a different opinion before you take any actions.

"Installed 4 new performance

tires and completed 4 wheel alignment. Called on Friday, they had the tires, and was able to schedule the work on Monday morning. Note I had called three other tire companies and they would have to order the tires. I was able to use a buy 3 tires get fourth tire for $1. Note, il came out cheaper using

dealer than going to tire shops. Very satisfied with the way the service department treated me and quickly completed the work. I would recommend.

is very straight and tells you like it is... They have done everything for me from changing oil to ac installs. I have never felt like I have been taken for a ride or that he was scamming me at all. His staff is very knowledgeable in explaining the issue and making me understand what is going on.

"I'm a single mom. When I first moved to
Chesapeake Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
from the
Chesapeake Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
, I looked for an auto service provider near where I lived. I chose this company because I had used it often on the
Chesapeake Motor Vehicle Inspection Provider Name Locked
and thought I could trust it. I took my car here for routine maintenance, such as oil changes and safety inspections from 2011 to 2012. Twice I brought my car in for estimates for other repairs. Each time I brought my car in for routine stuff, they told me there were a lot of other problems that also needed to be repaired or replace. Most were pretty expensive. I failed 2 different annual safety inspections (they found expensive work that had to be made, like repairing the parking brake), but took the car elsewhere and was told the repairs weren't needed. The last straw was when I took my car in for dashboard light malfunctions. They told me the entire computer module had to be replaced, estimated nearly $2k. I took the car somewhere else and they said it was a loose wire and fixed it on the spot for free.
Never went back.
