I couldn't say enough good things about Car-X on E Lake... and it's completely unacceptable that I have waited this long to leave them a review. We have gone many times as we live only a couple blocks away, and they have always taken on our "something is making a weird noise" inquiries with a smile and grace. Twice we have gone in and they did not charge us a dime but told us what was wrong, and one of those two times they even welded some piece of our alternator back on that was causing the rattling. They just told us it was a manufacturer error and fixed it. Also Pat, who I have often seen working the front desk, is super friendly and is always willing to answer any question. I hope everyone who reads this goes and gives them some business, they are a great shop!! Thank you Car-X!!
I trust the folks at this Car-X completely. They have taken care of my car from regular oil changes to bigger deal repairs, always quickly and at a good price. My uncles own a garage and I run anything that's a bigger deal past them. They have always agreed with the diagnosis, suggested fix, and price. I also really appreciate that the guys at this Car-X are respectful and have never assumed I don't know anything about cars just because I'm a woman. For other women and femme-presenting people out there, I have never been looked down on here.
This review is so long overdue. I have been their customer for about two years now and I just absolutely love them. If you're looking for a auto shop that you can trust, this is the one! They are very knowledgable and honest, they will never try to sell you more than what your car needs. In fact, when my husband and I were car shopping a few years ago, we would bring them the cars we were interested in for them to take a look at them, and after we brought them a few cars they stopped charging us! Also, one time my Ford Escape seemed to have a computer issue, so they took a look at it, fixed it and they didn't change me anything!!!! Because the problem was so minor and easy to fix. I mean, who does that?! They're just awesome and helpful. Thanks Pat, John and all of your team!
I was really impressed with this shop. I just moved here and had a flat tire. I had no clue as to where to get it fixed, so I turned to Google and saw the rave reviews here. Well, they are right - this place was a godsend. They fixed my tire in no time for a very reasonable price and were super pleasant and helpful. I will definitely be using them again - I'm so happy I found this shop!
Very kind and helpful staff. They didn't try to upsell me on things I didn't need like many auto shops try to do. They were very honest about what could be wrong but didn't want to replace it unless they knew for sure it was fixed. Will be going back to Car-X for any maintenance I need on my vehicle.
Pat and his crew were amazing. I had problems with my son's older Grand Prix and they did everything they could to save it, clearly explained everything, were honest and super reasonable. Highly recommend this place.
I was visiting in the area and had difficulty putting on windshield wipers. Pat kindly helped me by making sure I had the correct brand for my car and also helped install it w/o my having to wait. Extremely efficient, courteous, and knowledgeable this location is! I highly recommend coming here for your car service needs.
I had a wonderful experience here and would highly recommend their services to anyone needing auto work done. My car wouldn't start early in the morning before work, and the kind folks at Car-X were able to give me towing recommendation and get to work on my car right away. They contacted me after diagnosing the issue (dead battery) and made recommendations, then offered to take care of my routine maintenance needs (oil change, tire pressure check, fluids, etc.).They got the job done fast, were incredibly professional and kind, and even bumped my car ahead of schedule so I could get to work for a half day. I so appreciated their kindness and patience in explaining everything to me and not trying to overcharge me for what I didn't need. I will definitely be taking my car to Car X Tire & Auto for all my future needs.
