Signing the document for them to work on the vehicle includes a waiver on "not responsible for personal items". They use this as a license to steal what ever they want out of the vehicle and they won't be held responsible for anything stolen. Basically liars and thieves. Filed report with Harris County Sheriffs office. CSI could care less that their "long term, in-trusted employees are theives.

OUTSTANDING service! Another auto shop said that I would have to spend $900 on my ignition replacement and said I had a ton of other repairs that needed to be done. I took it to steve's for a 2nd opinion. He not only did it way cheaper, but said that three of the other 5 repairs were not real. I will always come back to Steve's Auto Repair. It's hard to find a reputable shop. I'm glad I found them.

I have taken my car to Steve's for years and have gotten nothing but great service. Many times, I see that I need an oil change or an inspection and I pull in and they get it done. If they are busy, they'll tell me approximately how long the wait will be. Yeah, they may be a little pricey but comeon, they're a mechanic. This is your car. It's worth it to invest money in your car to make sure that it is running for a long time. I used to bring my car somewhere else and spent thousands of dollars thinking I was getting it fixed and it ended up in worse shape than it was in before. I like the peace of mind that I get when I leave Steve's and that's why I will continue to bring my car here.

Lee Service Center
Mr. Lee is such a kind person, that I practically look forward to my car’s oil changes & inspections :-). He’s professional, yet approachable, & always remembers me. It’s so nice to actually feel appreciated by a business owner! I don’t have a ton of money to throw around & it just doesn’t seem like any of the monolithic chain stores even notice the massive amounts of money consistently being spent at their businesses. In contrast, Mr. Lee is graciously appreciative & offers great prices to his customers! He’s also an asset to my community. When I spend my money at Lee Service Center, a locally-owned business, rather than some huge corporations’s service center, it helps stimulate my community’s economy. Since Mr. Lee lives in Houston & his business is based in Houston as well, there’s a very strong likelihood that he’ll spend locally. Unfortunately, the world’s business environment is now motivated by ‘Big Business’. Chain stores are rapidly growing in wealth & power. Sadly, the huge gains that corporations have made translate into a now almost epidemic death of countless small businesses. Take your vehicle to Lee Service Center & I guarantee you’ll leave with a bigger smile than the one you’d probably have to force anyway as you leave a Walmart Service Center. Keep up the great job, Mr. Lee! Houston needs more locally-owned businesses like yours~ 🙌🏻

My husband and I have taken our cars for oil changes, checkups, tire rotations and replacements, and we have even been happy with our experiences. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

Santillan Transmissions 2
I've looked a long time for a great mechanic that knows what they are doing, is professional, friendly, who will explain in detail what your vehicle needs, what it will cost, how long it will take, who means it and will stick with it just as they said and promised … quickly and at a very fair price! "Impossible!" you say? Not at Santillana's: They are every bit that, and more … and, as long as they keep doing the fine, dependable work they have done on my car, they'll have my business and every friend I can send their way. Use them with confidence.THEY ARE A GENUINE AND PROFESSIONAL FIVE STAR SHOP. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

These guys were just great! We are from Dallas- and we love great service. They not only repaired our tire fast but found a flaw that probably happened on the streets of Dallas. They tried to find a tire...but it's not instock here. We appreciate their professionalism. We recommend them to everyone!!!

Floyd's Auto Repair
I recently took my car there because it did not want to start, they ran a diagnostic test on it and found out that I needed a brake switch and that the water pump had probably gone bad. So they put the brake switch on , put antifreeze in it and changed thermostat housing that cost around $340 just to do that and to put the water pump on would be around $600 more. So I held off on getting that done. So maybe 3 weeks later same problem happened with the brake switch and it still was having problems starting so I took it back and told him what was going on so he said he would run another diagnostic and let me know. The next day he called and told me that I was looking at about $1600 to change the water pump and put a new timing belt on but he didnt know the exact problem because he had to wait get another machine to run a diagnostic on it. So almost a week goes by and he still had not got the machine to test it so I decided to not let him do the work for that outrageous price. The water pump only cost $39 at auto zone and to get to the water pump on my car you would have to remove timing belt any way so 1500 and some odd dollars for labor is absolutely ridicoulous. Would not recommend this shop to anyone. I read a couple of reviews before writing this and ppl were speaking highly of a guy named jj well I guess jj doesn't work there any more because a guy named carlos is in charge. Oh yea when I picked the car up he wanted to charge me 80 dollars for test he had ran, mind you he never got the machine to run a diagnostic. Horrible service

The worst customer service in Spring Branch that i've experienced during my 25 years as a resident in the area. The shop manager is very unprofessional and a class on customer service would be of great benefit to him! I will be reporting this side show to the BBB.
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.
