Has Anyone Had Servie Done @...

Recommended Posts

Has anyone been to or have heard about the reputation of Automotive Specialty Services in Avon Ohio?

http://www.automotivespecialtyservices.com/main.wtk

Looking to get the TB/WP work done there, but wanted to ask around here before I made a commitment.

Thanks!

Don't have any personal experience with them but.... they are giving gifts for referrals. Flat screen TV's, DVD's, MP3's, Father's day BBQ grill.

Why would they have to do that if they had a good rep? Red flags are popping up all over. :o Quite an entertaining site otherwise. :whistles:

They do, however, have a "recommend" from Click'n'Clack readers..... http://www.cartalk.com/content/mechx/find.html

I found a local Toyota dealer was actually more competitive to work on my Lexus than local places. You are wise to ask before deciding.

Thanks for the input...hadn't thought about it as "red flags". But now you got my worried!

I had my car inspected there (free)...just to get a feel. They took me on a test ride. I was able to watch them do the inspection (seemed pretty thorough) and they were pretty right on with their diagnosis (I know every noise my car makes...). Spent about 1.5 hours. Gave me an estimate for Toyota/Lexus parts and labor(comes with lifetime warranty).

The garage was like an operating room (only slight exaggeration...)and I haven't seen a cleaner lobby in a doctors office. (They have two binders with about 500 letters from happy recent customers on the table)

I was all excited at first...but it seems to be too good to be true and I am going to be mighty *BLEEP*ed if I go there and realize I was suckered some how.

Ugh.

P.S. Did I mention the free loaner car?

P.P.S They claim that the owner has been a guest on Click and Clack.

They may be worth trying if they impressed you with the initial inspection.

However, if they are giving away "prizes", they have to be charging more for service/parts to pay for it. Unless maybe they are plugged into some government pork plan. :unsure: :P

What was their estimate for doing TB/WP with OEM parts?
