This shop has done decent work for me in the past with thminstalling seals and such. They have given me professional advice with the diagnosis on the stuff i needed advice on. However, when i took my 98 audi to these guys to have the front crankshaft seal and valve seals replaced. They had to take the front bumper off to install them on this car. Everything appeared to be put back in place. except for the driver side grill piece that fell out when i was about to leave. Mind you it is plastic but that is beside the point. I was blamed for this broken plastic piece. I take my car in again to have it looked at for a coolant leak. So they had done a couple tests. I start my car up after service and it kind if had a hard time starting. After i cleaned it out the next day. I tried to open the truck with the door unlock button. My trunk didn't unlock. So i tried to unlock it with the key. The factory alarm starts going off. So i start the car, and unlock again for the trunk. I turn the stereo on to remove the cassette tape. The radio is in safe mode. Which means the battery cable was removed with out powering the cigarette lighter to back up the alarm power. Apparently this shop doesn't know that removing the battery cable with put backing up the alarm power on an audi. will put the system in safe mode. Im pretty upset about this but hopefully this will not affect my trade in value for the car when i trade it in. I thought the shop had foresight on this. Due to the owner claiming to have owned a Volkswagen, but apparently not. If you have a German made car, i would recommend bringing your car here for anything that requires removing the battery terminals.

I immediately came online to find a place where I can review this place and express my opinion on the service they gave me. It's the least I could do and help them out.I had take my car to get brakes done. A few months went by and the squeak started as if they pads were going out. I was upset as it's only been a few months when brakes pads should not be replaced that fast.I took it back there thinking they wouldn't fix it without some type of charge. The story ends after they check out the car, he told they'd replace the pads (free of course) . It was the right thing to do on there end which is what the result was. No hesitation on replacing them.Anyway. I got my car fixed. No brake squeak. It was a $200 charge last time but out of courtesy they've fixed the set labor and all free of charge.That is how a business should treat there customer as I've gone there quite a few times in the past. I'll continue to take my business there again.

U Save Collision Center
I have been doing business with Jay and all the employees at U Save for many years now, not only personally but I also refer ALL MY clients to them. They are absolutely AMAZING! The go above and beyond to make your horrible experience (car accident) as easy and painless as possible. I have never worked with a more caring and understanding group of people in my life. When I say they go above and beyond, I mean they go above and beyond! EX - I had a client waiting for the other insurance company to approve the rental and Jay took the time to pick up my client and take her to the grocery store. (I'm pretty sure service king and all the other big collision centers) would never take the time to do that. With the big collision companies you are only $$ in their eyes, with U Save Collison, you are actually a person who they truly care about!

U Save Collision Center
This place can be summed up in 2 words....Above and Beyond. Exceptional Customer service, Professional, Detail Oriented, and gave me a complete worry free repair in less than 5 days. (and trust me I had a pretty bad wreck) Not only were they able to help me with the insurance claim...they also caught a lot of problems that the insurance estimate had missed...including some broken brackets beneath the body damage. Jay and Gina are exceptional at knowing what to do and handled it all professionally and were so friendly. I hope to never have to use them again (lol) but if i do have another accident....Jay is now programmed on my phone.

I took my truck in last year here to have my suspension checked and found out that a lot of my parts were bad and need to be replaced. They were very professional and polite. they took me out to the truck and showed me what was wrong and explained everything to me. Mike the GM was very nice and gave me a great price on all the labor and parts. I only take my trucks here. i will recommend them to all my friends. Wonderful place

I took my Honda in for scheduled service. John checked my car and found somethings I had been neglecting. He was so honest and helpful by showing me the things I needed to replace now and letting me know the things that could wait to be replaced another visit. Thank you John and Mike for the "above and beyond" customer service. I'll never go anywhere else again

I have taken three of my vehicles here after a wreck and each time they have been more than helpful. everything was set and ready to go upon arrival they worked directly with the insurance so I didn't have to and they even provided transportation to get my rental car. I would recommend them and keep going back myself.

I have been going to this shop even when they were at their old location, I have never had any problem with them. they are honest, good and fast. The best is their pricing, they do the same quality work as dealer does with almost %30 less. I highly recommend them.

Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
