I was always taught that you treat others as you would want to be treated. I experienced this lesson first hand on September 1-2, 2015 through your service department and awesome employees. On August 31st, my mother and I left SC on a road trip to visit her older sisters in Philadelphia. When we arrived in Hershey, my mother thought she heard a noise coming from the front passenger side wheel. Initially, I did not hear the noise. After touring the Hershey Chocolate Factory, we hit the road and headed to Lancaster, PA. It was then, that I began to hear some noise. The noise began to gradually get worse and I began to feel it. Of course, I felt frustrated, disheartened and didn't know what to do after trying to seeking assistance from two other dealerships. I knew something major was wrong and didn't know how long it would be before my vehicle would stop operating or become unsafe to drive. After praying, calming myself and determining the next plan of action, I found your dealership and was fortunate/blessed that the operator transferred my call to the service department and the Service Manager, Danny, whom I describe as my angel on earth. I shared the above story with him and he said something that gave me hope that someone was willing to take the time to assist me. He said that he didn't know whether he could help, but if it was his mother, daughter or sister, he wouldn't want them stranded while traveling and asked that I bring the vehicle to the service department to at least be checked to make sure it was safe to drive. I arrived at 6:00 PM and he was assisting another family but made me feel at eased that I was in the right place. I realized while talking to him that Danny was one in a million. He has the gift and skills of excellent customer service and empathy for his customers. These qualities are hard to find in our fast paste and sometimes uncaring, non-flexible and unaccommodating world. Danny contacted me on September 2nd with great news. The problem was the right front hub bearing assembly needed to be replaced. He explained the cost and procedures. While waiting to pick up my vehicle, I observed customers interacting with Danny and realized that his character, personality, attention to detail and rapport with customers and fellow employees has allowed him to establish a community in the service department in which customers feel welcomed and cared for and are not afraid to communicate their needs, give compliments and thanks to the service department employees. What I experienced and observed can only happen when a company/team has established a culture and environment in which all stakeholders are valued, appreciated and respected. My mother and I arrived safely back home in SC. The Equinox sounds and drives great! Once again, I thank your company, the Gordon Chevrolet family, Danny and the entire service department.

Their first review is not going to be good. I saw one of their cars in CarGurus and Craigslist. It looked great and appeared to be priced right. It had a clean carfax and was a one owner car. This was rare for a 2006. I test drove it and it seemed to ride good and from outward inspection everything seemed ok. I followed up with 2 local shops. The first was for a "going over" and oil change. The going over was not that good. It needed front brakes and rotors. It had a bad front tire and 2 different sized tires on the back. This visit cost me about $1100. The next was to a Mercedes service center (not a dealer). This is where it gets expensive. It needed a cabin temperature sensor since there was no in between settings of the heat or AC. It was either full AC or full heat. It also needed the outside door handle with the electronics for the keyless Go system. The passenger door worked but the drivers door did not. Both of these parts are on order from Germany for $720 plus installation. The convertible room and power trunk stopped working after 2 days. That needed 2 control relays. That was over $600. All in all, I do love this car. Hopefully, this will be the end of the issues. I just wish I knew about them prior to buying the car. It would have made a difference on how much I was willing to pay for it.

J & L Auto Repair
How much is a quality trustworthy mechanic worth? PRICELESS!I’ve been relying on Lam from J&L Auto to service my 2002 Saturn for over the past 7 years and have always been impressed with the consistent quality of workmanship my car has received. I take pride in keeping my car which has over 150K miles running great and attribute this mainly to the outstanding service I get from J&L Auto. What is most exceptional about this business is that never once have I been recommended services to my aging car for which it did not need. On the contrary, Lam has suggested only the necessary repairs costing much less then the excessive recommendations I always got from the national chain store mechanics and quick lube chains who do nothing more then up sell service that is displayed from their computer screen. Thankfully, I started going to J&L Auto through a recommendation from my Uncle after being told I needed over $700 in repairs to my engine from a well known retail auto chain. It turned out my car needed little more work then a routine tune-up which was a fraction of the cost. Ever since then, I continue to trust Lam and J&L Auto for their expert and HONEST advice for all repairs and routine maintenance on my car.

Joe Pirrone Transmissions
To my dismay my new (used) mini van ran into a big problem shortly after purchasing it from a local dealership. I was recommended to this auto shop but was very anxious bc my car came with a warranty that I had heard not so great reviews about. Well that was a lot of needless worry . Everyone on the staff I dealt with was courteous and professional. They were the ones who dealt with my warranty company, I was kept updated throughout all the repairs, everything was done on a timely basis, and I was even offered a ride home and they offered me help if I needed to figure out how to secure a rental car during repairs as well. Devin, the owner made me feel like my family's new vehicle was in the best hands possible and I'm relieved that this was the shop I walked into. It's been a bit of time now and I can say that the van has been running in top condition since I've gotten it back. I'm so grateful to them for giving me a stress free experience and getting me safely back in the road and would not hesitate to recommend Joe Pirrone Transmissions to anyone who is in need of transmission work and looking for someone trustworthy to deal with.

i had a crazy situation with my 02 ford explorer.. i went to joe because my aunt had two of her cars fixed there before and they worked good for her. i bought the car like a year ago, and first i started havin problems wit the 4x4 during the winter. joe got that fixed for me with my warranty company with no issues. a few months later, my trans started actin crazy when i was drivin on the highway. i took it back to joe and lucky for me my warranty company still had coverage but they didn't want to pay the full price joe got me as much as he could from the warranty people, and dropped the price for me so i could get my car back for work. they didn't really have to drop me price for me if they didnt want to but its good to kno that theirs people still around that understand the problems we got in the economy. i told joe id write him a review on here and i always forgot until now but i just wanted to thank them again for doin a good job on my baby and workin with me money wise. id tell anyone i know to use them. thanks again guys. you got a satisfied customer rite here

PA Auto Sales
In early October 2016 i found a 2008 Ford F250 on Cargurus. I sent an email stating that I was interested in the vehicle and i was contacted the very next morning by Rob. The entire staff was very friendly and accommodating. Between Robs friendly service and Igor really going the distance to get me not only financed but to really work with my lousy credit and figure out a way to get me a damn good rate for the position i was in. I drove away in the truck in under two hours total. They said the vehicle had been at one of the storage areas and hadnt been detailed fully yet but if i brought it back the next day they could get it cleaned up while i waited. Being a used vehicle it did have a few minor problems over the next two months but the staff at PA auto stood by me and the vehicle and worked to have all problems resolved fast and easy. Not only would i recommend going here but i plan to return for myself and have referred friends and family. Start to finish just a great place and extremely professional staff.

Dillon's Auto Repair
For the last 3 years I have been taking my car to Pep Boys, and they have been nickle and dime'ing me to death. The last time I took it to PB they told me it was going to cost over $2K to replace just my a/c unit in the car because it had a hole in it. I said no way! My friend told me about Dillon's Auto Repair so I deiced to give him a try. I usually don't write reviews but for the service, experience, friendliness and the cost I just had to leave this review. Took my car (with no appointment) and asked him to look the whole car over as I am an Uber driver and did not want to break down. With-in 2 days he had my car inspected, my a/c unit fixed and my over heating problem all done. Now for 3 YEARS PB was never able to do all of that in 2 days! And for the price I paid I highly recommend Dillon's Auto. I have found a new doctor for my car and I couldn't be happier! Thank you so much to the team at Dillon's Auto Repair Shop! (Would of given more stars if I could of)

I came in to lease a chevy trax because at this time financialy I cannot afford the payments of a new car and did not want to purchase a used car,so my daughter who leases her vehicle convinced me to try leasing, my car was 14 years old and was starting to cost me money every time I had inspection and as a single women breaking down once on the ac expressway was enough. I found the salesman Sam to be extremley helpful in trying to get me to a price I can afford but ran into trouble when my credit score was low , I left disappointed but did come back on Monday to ask if my mother could co sign for my lease , Sam did get his boss involved and Steve found out that the finance dept had my mortgage payment mixed up with my monthly salary, if he didn t take the extra time to check this I would have left disappointed again but instead I drove out of the dealership with a new car and good price!! Thank You,Kathleen

The Fix Car Care Clinic
A friend of mine recommended I go here as he previously took his car to get fixed. My AC was not working properly and I've had so many different mechanic throw different prices at me that were astronomical. Jon ( one of the shop operators) looked at my car and after a series a questions, determined what my car needed. He even talked me thru what the problem was in layman's term so that I could understand what the heck was happening. I just needed a recharge and did not need any additional work done like these other guys had told me. Jon didn't take Advantage of me not knowing anything about cars and straight up helped me. On top of that, he didn't charge the crazy prices either. It was afforded and fair for the work he did. Now I bring my car to Jon if I have any issues! You'd be a fool not to!

Dom has helped me with 5 of my vehicles over the past 10 years. Everything from simple oil changes and replacing brake pads to installing towing hitch systems, exhaust systems, power steering, suspensions, blown head gaskets, electrical, transmissions, radiators, air conditioning, heating, alternators and ignition systems. He has been working on automobiles since he was a young boy. He is extremely knowledgeable and doesn't mess around. If you need a job done on your vehicle, no matter what year, make or model, Dom can get it done. His prices are great and his location is easy to get to from all of the major roads, highways and boulevards in Philadelphia. I highly recommend Dom and Tom Auto Repair Service. Give them a call.
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.
