We have had a few things done here, from oil changes to replacing the power window regulator. The staff is very helpful and the prices seem fair. This is the only place we use for car repair.
I went here for my inspection in October, they were very friendly and helpful, I couldn't drop my car off so I had to wait in their customer lounge. It took less time than expected and their lounge was very cozy! I am definitely coming back next year!
Excellent service. They went above and beyond making sure everything was taken care of. I would highly recommend.
I got my car inspected and they explained the items needed to pass inspection and fixed them for an affordable price.
Great place, good people working there.
They are a pretty good bunch of guys. The staff is very knowledgeable. The location is very visible and located right on Dam Neck Rd near Holland Rd. I've been taking my cars there since they opened a few years ago. They are accurate when they tell you when you're car will be ready and they are very good at notifying you with updates. When the estimates were a little too high for my budget, they worked to help find cheaper parts or alternate solutions. Sometimes you'll have to press them for that information though. The staff has showed great patience and willingness to help even when I had a million questions to try to figure out if I could postpone some repairs or try to do them myself. They have been very instrumental in a few of my DIY projects and were very open and honest about sharing their expertise. I think that's the biggest reason why I have come to trust them. Oh yeah, their waiting area is big and quite nice. There's free coffee, tv, and wifi too. I don't like having my cars in for repairs but this is a pretty good place to go.
I give them 5 stars for responsiveness and friendliness. My car overheated down the street from their shop and my teenage daughter was driving and had to leave the car in the road and wait to be rescued. I was unable to get to her since she was driving my car, I called NAPA super car care center asking if i get my car towed their and told them my car was in the middle of the road on Dam Neck just a few hundred feet from them. They said they would go check it out and let me know. They were great! I was impressed that they didn't just blow it off or say they didn't have time. They were able to get the car to the shop and do a block test on it. While they said I needed a replacement engine and I turned down this repair due to costs vs. buying another car, I had the car towed home after to die. Despite not having had work performed here, i would definitely recommend them. I am so grateful that they were there during this ordeal. :-)
Friendly staff & affordable. Highly recommend!
According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
