My car needed a new alternator put in, Kevin was super informative and down to earth, keeping us updated on the process! They were done much sooner than what other mechanics had quoted us. All around great service and fun people to talk to! Thank you Kevin! The superhero with the tie! 😉read more

I have been using Car-X since a friend gave me a gift pass for a free oil change. I have never had to deal with 'upselling' or being offered something I don't or could not need. Oil changes are quick, efficient and the plastic sticker helps me always keep track of mileage. I would be able to give this place a rating of 5 if I had been able to use my coupon for both oil change and tire rotation on the same day instead of making another trip, which made it less of a coupon. Management is friendly and I feel I am getting great service when I go.read more

Every time I've come, I've had a good feeling when I left. Very honest and open, and have even invited me out to see for myself! Just had my car at another mechanic yesterday and the told me only one of my tie rods were bad. I came to Car X because that mechanic didn't have an alignment machine and found out Car X couldn't do the alignment because my other tie rod WAS bad! The manager, Josh, was wonderful and very helpful. I also love that they provide Netflix since I had my 3-yr-old son with me and he could watch cartoons while we waited for them to replace the tie rod. HIGHLY recommend these guys!read more
