I had an unfortunate situation I hadn't dealt with before where someone had attempted to steal my catalytic converter from underneath my car. I had no idea this was the case, until the team at Car-X informed me. I was lost with what to do, and Tyson and his team were so incredibly patient and helpful. Not having dealt with this situation before and in distress, I even called my dad to come help me make some financial decisions. Tyson worked with me, my dad, AND my insurance to get me the best deal and care for my vehicle. He even spotted multiple other safety issues with my car that I'm glad he caught. I was able to pick it back up the same day after a full day of repairs - they even welded together a pipe for me that they didn't have in stock! Even after the visit, Tyson called me to follow-up on my insurance several days later. I'm so incredibly grateful to this Car-X and their amazing team. I felt in good hands, well-informed, and that they truly cared for me and my vehicle. Thank you again, hopefully I won't be back with too many other issues again in the future, but if I do, this is where I'll be headed.
Awesome staff. Long story short it appeared that they had over filled the oil causing a misfire on cylinder 3. They looked it over and found that ignition coil was failing and everything was done right. They had the ignition coil on hand and installed it for a very fair price. They also tested the head gasket for us as well. Awesome job guys and girls! You made my fiancés and I’s day
Great service!! they send out reminders and great coupons! Also, this location has women attendants! Thanks, Car-X you are teaching and showing children that jobs are not gender based!! ❤
They got the job done right on time and on budget great shop
Great group of guys. I never had been there and I barely sat down before they were done. I took my daughter's car there, I'll take mine there too.
I've been to several CarX locations and they've all been extremely helpful. This location I've had several cars worked on and used their oil change service. No complaints with any work done.
Needed a new Catalytic Converter installed on my 2008 Grand Prix. They used my provided OEM direct fit part and had the best price in town. The techs were upfront and honest with their work. They even got me in last minute even though i was willing to schedule. Best big name shop in Polk county. Polite and Professional. My new home shop!
Driving through Iowa my car experienced problems near Des Moines. I stopped at CarX to get a short-term fix. Jose immediately helped me, quickly fixed it and that allowed me to get back on the road. Thank you Jose and CarX! Your help was appreciated!
I had a screw in my tire which they found and patched for me free of charge in less than 40 minutes. Excellent costumer service.
Went to CarX Tire and Auto with a nail in my tire. Even though it was just before it was closing time, they got me in and fixed it within minutes. The supervisor, John Signs, was super friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend them!
Although later than promised, I came in with NO Appointment!!! All other shops I have been looking at the past couple weeks sayy next week would be the earliest. They got me done in a few hrs and paid for my delicious street tacos. Chance and Aaron were outstanding with their service and courtesy. Anthony (the mechanic) was top notch as well! I will be returning!
Always fast, helpful, and courteous! I feel their team goes above and beyond with every interaction.
Chris Cunningham is the manager I believe & is wonderful as is the rest of his team. They are kind, trustworthy and I won't be taking my car to anyone else. Chris has went above and beyond & I honestly received the type of customer service that was worthy of a full on dealership. Having people can trust is just priceless! Thanks Again, Shanna Hanssen
Great customer service! First time in they helped me with my car and saved me about $700. Recently we took my husbands car in and got the same great customer service. Nice friendly staff all around. Thanks for all you’ve done for us. We will for sure be back. #customersforlife 🙂
They have worked on our son's Traverse several times. Always friendly and work hard to figure out the problem. This last time was a real weird issue and since it was Saturday and he had to pick up the kids, they arranged a rental for him at no charge.Tyson is marvelous as is the rest of the crew. Wish we had one in our area.
I went in around 4:15 today for an oil change. There was no waiting. The team worked fast and I was on my way in probably 10 minutes. The staff member I interacted with, Tucker, was very polite both to me and the other customers he helped. He called me ma'am and was very pleasant.
If you want fast, amazing, and affordable oil changes go here. I assume their other services are great, but all I needed was an oil change. Friendly guys too. I was in and out in less than 20 minutes. I'll be bringing both my vehicles here for all my oil changes from now on.
