Classic bait and switch. I was quoted a labor fee of $225 last week for swapping out leaf springs and then when I brought my truck in this morning was told the labor was going to be $380. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THEM! A friend gave me this warning last week and now I know what he means.

This place may be the worst place to take your car to get it fixed. I went in for an oil change and to fix my brakes. Got the car the next day to drive it home and oil leaked everywhere and my engine ended up blowing out. I cant even tell you about the job on the brakes because I barely got to drive it. Owner said it was only half his fault as I am supposed to notice oil leaking out the bottom of my car as I am driving. Not his fault for not putting the oil plug back on so that the oil wouldnt leak. My car is now not in driving condition and I basically lost a car because of an oil change. I WILL NEVER BRING MY CAR BACK TO THIS PLACE. I HOPE OTHER PEOPLE SEE THIS AND DONT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AS I DID. HE DIDNT EVEN CARE THAT MY CAR WAS DAMAGED BEYOND REPAIR AND HE WANTED ME TO PAY HIM MORE MONEY TO FIX IT. HELL NO!

One of their drivers almost hit me pulling onto 280E and had the nerve to flip me off as he almost plowed into the side of my vehicle. I called to complain and got voice mail. Completely unprofessional. I would NOT recommend this service to anyone. Unsafe and rude.

RUDE. I called to see if they had a rollback truck and they mumbled something then hung up on me. Don't think I'll be calling them again.

Carlos charged me 702 dollars for a disconected relay and he stated that I needed work done to my car that I did not need. I told him to hold the car he hurried and fixed it so he could charge me the money I had to make him put it back and put it on the street he charged me over 100 dollars for a fake diagnostic because he said there was something wrong with my front end and if I drove it I would have an accident i and storage for 2 days the next two days a mechanic from Jersey city went to Newark and fixed my car and brought it back for 100 dollars and said that there was nothing wrong with my front end ,Carkis think women are stupid and he tried to rip me off ..beware

***WARNING PLEASE READ BEFORE GOING TO THIS SHOP.***First, I personally went to this shop for roughly 1 year. I bought a car that had a few minor issues, 1 being a valve cover gasket leak. After this shop repaired this issue I took my car to a dealership and paid for a complete diagnostic. The report showed a few minor items that I was aware of. Within the next few months I continued to take my vehicle to this shop, oddly enough more and more parts were starting to malfunction after each visit. By end of summer and thousands of dollars later I started to noticed the pattern. I drove my car to my old mechanic whom inspected the repairs along with doing a few of his own to it. He noticed several issues and validated my assumption that this shop is SHADY and are NOT honest mechanics. Also, it's worth noting that I had brought another vehicle to this shop. A simple kit replacement that involved a water pump and its components. The second vehicle also came back with even more malfunctioning issues. Furthermore, I showed him an area he had broken, he went ahead and fixed the issue. Had I not had knowledge of working on vehicles I would've dished out several hundreds of dollars to fix what they did. After this I stopped going to them, along with them refusing to give me a proper receipt for the repairs. When I did get a receipt, the receipts were always unreadable. Most of the time I had to wait months before a proper/readable receipt was provided. You would think that now my vehicle would be running better than when I first got it. Especially after thousands of dollars being invested into this vehicle. However, that's far from the truth, my vehicle is still having issues. Some from the very beginning. I've had to do a lot of repairs on my own. Mostly to correct the issues this shop has caused to my vehicles. This does not include the normal wear and tear that the vehicle goes through.

This business had the nastiest service. I paid $155 for a battery that completely wont work even with jump cables along with an 18 month warranty. When I came back to return the battery itself, they asked me to bring my car that won't work with a dead battery and made the biggest deal when I had the receipt with me. They finally gave it to me and when I confronted them about their nasty attitude they wrote down to take away my warranty and gave me a new battery, which of course, is also just as messed up. I regret ever going to this place they treated me both times with disrespect and told my husband to shut up. These people will rob you.
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.
