I came here for a car inspection; I usually go to AAA Car Care but they were booked up. When I pulled in I immediately asked the guy how much the inspection charge would be with the tint on my car. (My car has legal tint but I've only ever been charged $30 by either AAA or the Honda dealership.) The guy told me $30 because it was in legal range, so I proceeded with the inspection. When the woman at the counter rang me up, she told me $40. I told her that the fellow had advised $30; she said there was a $10 tint charge and that he was just an employee, not an inspector. My problem is, I was told $30 by a legitimate worker of the business, not by the janitor or a delivery guy, so the $30 is what I should have been charged. I don't appreciate being told one thing then charged another, no matter the reason...the original rate should have been honored. I guess if you don't get a quote in writing, even for a basic services, autoshops will charge whatever. I'd considered coming back for other services after seeing how well they treated another woman who was waiting (that's why 2 stars instead of just 1), but now that's definitely out of the question.

Recently we had a new customer come to our shop for an NCDOT Emmision inspection. When she arrived she asked how much for an inspection and our Lube tech answered $30.00. This price is correct, however the customer had legal tint on her vehicle and the state of NC mandates that we charge $10.00 additional dollars to verify that the tint is leagal. When the customer reached the check out counter she was informed that the total was $40.00. She was upset and did not want to pay more than $30.00 like the lube tech said. We appologized for the confusion but our hands were tied as we MUST follow the state law or face possible penalties. She informed us that she went to the dealership as well as AAA car care and they have never charged her for the tint. Well I can not speak for them breaking the law, but quite frankly that is exactly what they have done. We appologize again and hope this customer comes back in the future. Our goal is always to have the best customer satisfaction possible.Thank You Kar Kare Management.

I went here 10/11/13 for a transmission flush and an oil change. Jerry was the mechanic that helped. He told me I didn't need an transmission flush and brought me in the back and explained everything in detail to me. My car is over 3yrs old, but has only 37,000 miles. The other mechanic I spoke with at another shop wanted to charge me $280.00 for the transmission flush. I knew that was way too high and they were trying to take advantage of me. And the dealership, they always scare(we suggest) you into getting extra services that you didn't come in for. Its nice to know there are still some mechanics who are honest and not trying to get over on you because you are a female or less knowledgeable about cars. Thank you Jerry.

We brought our car in for an oil change and front brakes and rotors. The new store manager, Andy, was very informative and helpful. He said they would need about 1-1/2 hours to complete the work - they finished the work in 1-1/4 hours and his estimate was right on the money! We were very pleased with the service and the attitude of the manager and his employees. While we were waiting in the office, Helen, who ran the office was very friendly and made us feel at home. She was a great help with the kids. She found children's books for them and even had some coloring books for them AND hung their pictures up on her desk! We will definitely come back with all our cars for any work that needs to be done! This is a GREAT PLACE!

Great place! Aaron and Andy are Wonderful.. Wouldn't take my vehicle anywhere else! My car was finished quickly and with in the time that was quoted..I was greeted in my car when I pulled up,they took my info ,put seat covers on,floor mats and a steering wheel cover to protect the inside (which is great because it has gotten dirty from oil from other places I've been) they check everything , called me out to review what was done,and then my car was vacuumed and the window cleaned ..I was then called up to the front to pay and handed my keys..I was very pleased with my service ,and would highly recommend this place ..All of the staff was friendly and well mannered!
Tips & Advices
You should change your oil filter whenever you change your oil, that is, approximately every 7,500 miles.
A oil filter is a device that helps remove contaminants from motor oil as it passes through the engine. A pump pushed the oil through the filter where it is strained and goes back to the engine.
High-mileage oil contains special conditioners that are said to help prevent gaskets from drying out and thus preventing leaks. This can be beneficial to engines with many miles on them.
Synthetic oil costs more than conventional oil, but the price is offset by the need for less frequent oil changes due to the oil’s durability.
Tools needed to change your own oil include jack stands or ramps, a wrench, an oil filter wrench, an oil drip pan, funnel, replacement oil filter, and replacement oil.
