Richard is amazing he was so helpful I really can’t express how great the service he provided was. It was a horrible snow storm and I was trying to make my way home from work. My windshield wipers were terrible and there was no way I could make it any further I seen the car X sign from the freeway so I stopped there hoping to get new wipers changed and I’m so thankful that I did. Thanks to Richard and his team I was able to get back on the road quickly and safely!
I am so thankful that I just happened to pull into their parking lot one day! My car was having issues when it got pretty cold. It would kind of chug and not want to accelerate very well from 0-30 mph and it had issues switching from 30 to 40. The check engine light would come on and go off. When they did their diagnostic it was a MAP sensor. They swapped it out for me and gave me a good deal. The car ran beautifully the next few days. However shortly after it began having the same issues. I happened to be right next to a Hyundai and they noticed some wiring issues that were damaged a long time ago. They could tell because they were corroded. Hyundai quoted me $1000-$5000 to fix these wires in the harness! I could not pay this so the man at Hyundai soldered one wire for me. I took it back to Car X to get a second opinion. Richard took a look at it and said the issue was fixed! There was no other corrosion, everything else was completely fine! He was adamant I did NOT need a whole new harness as Hyundai was saying. I have to admit after fixing the one wire and the new sensor my car is driving like it’s old self. Zippy! So Car X saved me from spending money on an unnecessary $1000-$5000 repair! I absolutely appreciate the honesty and not taking advantage. Richard and his team are very caring and friendly. Felt like I’ve known them a while. I will be back! Thank you!!!
I first went here through Amazon to get tires on my truck. Fast and efficient, Car-X was done with my vehicle when they said they would be. Awesome place already been here again to get some things fixed and they have been nothing but helpful. Richard I believe is the store manager and he is a very nice guy! Good place to get work done for your vehicle!
Richard and the team were awesome to work with providing excellent customer service and prompt turnaround time. In less than 24 hours of my phone call to drop off my truck having battery and starting issues, the guys had it fully operational and back on the road. I have also taken this truck and a previous vehicle here for maintenance and repairs. This shop will always give you an honest, truthful assessment and has very reasonable prices. Another example of this is when I had a complete tire blow out on the highway driving to work in the morning. They helped put my worries at ease and had my car ready to roll with a new tire the same day. In my 2 plus years of vehicle service at this location, I have always left extremely satisfied. You can count on these guys to go the extra mile and provide best in class quality and work.
I brought a Corolla here for a pre purchase inspection, Richard and Doug had the vehicle in and out within about half an hour. They provided me with a full report of the vehicles condition and took the time to explain to me their opinions on the value of the vehicle and how I should handle the purchase with the dealer. I don't live around the area so I probably won't be back very often, but I really enjoyed my experience here.
Came in with a flat tire, turned out to be a dented wheel as well. Richard took the time to put on the spare and walk me through what I needed to do to fix the problem. Didn’t charge me for the work or the advice, great guy and an awesome team!
Fantastic service and honest staff. Walser Jeep in Hopkins told me I ABSOLUTELY needed all 4 brakes done- pads AND rotors on my vehicle with only 80,000 miles on it. ($1200 job at the the dealership)Took it here for inspection and told them I was pretty sure it at least needed rear brakes, but turned it doesn’t need brakes at all. So thankful for the friendly and honest staff and will be bringing my car here from now on for every single service. Thank you!
One of our work vehicles broke down on 394, we had it towed randomly to this shop, the repair bills were quite expensive so I was obviously a little nervous. I had them email over a copy of the estimate to our local repair shop. Everything checked out. It also ended up being quite a bit cheaper than originally estimated. Richard was extremely great to work with and very trustworthy. Highly recommend this company
The guys here were great! I got out of my car across the street to go into a restaurant and heard a loud hissing... I had ran over a nail in the construction zone on Louisiana. I don't live anywhere around there and knew I had to get it fixed immediately. Went across 394 at 5:45 and they were so nice to get me in right before they closed. I was so lucky! Thank you again! I really appreciate you guys.
I had what I thought was just a leak in my tire, hoping to get it patched; just as they were closing. Kindly enough they said that they'd fix it up and and stay a bit later. Unfortunately there was a tear in my tire and it couldn't be fixed. Thankfully they had the right sized tires and stayed even longer to put them on. They were nothing but kind and went out of their way to help me out, ensuring I could use my vehicle.
We got a flat on the freeway and barely made it to the shop. They were able to get us in quickly and patch our tire so we could go on our way. Everyone we worked with was professional and friendly & we wouldn't hesitate to go there for future service.
The best experience I have ever had with any mechanic!Very honest and even showed me what was wrong so I understood what they needed to do to fix it. The man that helped me at the front desk was completely up front and friendly. This will be my go to place whenever I have car trouble or need basic car maintenance!
