I was very disappointed with this establishment. I went there for one SPECIFIC problem- my car was having problems starting. So he changes my spark plugs, $600 later. When i went to pick up my car, when all the work had been finished and was paid for, he then tells me that I have the wrong battery in the car. I m thinking, well, shouldn t that have been what you fixed, versus my spark plugs? Not even a week later, my car wouldn t start at a gas station. I have it towed to him, and he tells me that its my starter and its fried because of the battery. He wanted to charge me nearly $900 for a starter and a battery! both parts combined are about $300- for a Honda Civic. Not even a complicated car. I would not recommend him to anyone, nor will I ever step foot in that establishment again.
I'm really impressed. I went for an inspection and they handled my car quickly. The front desk clerk was polite, and there was even a scented candle burning in the lobby (which was a nice touch, actually). I've finally found a mechanic to come back to!
Expect a big bill here – Took our 2001 VW Jetta here and they priced the work at $1850 for a catalytic converter, o2 sensor, spark plugs and wires. Catalytic work is high anyhow, but I think this is steep. Took it elsewhere nearby and had the work done, with equivalent parts, for $600 less. They were not up front about the $185 charge just for checking out the problem... verbally or on paper. Shop was customer-oriented and polite in every way EXCEPT those which dealt with my money and personally, that's what matters most to me, second only to the work being done right. I'd have to say that I'm not surprised at all to read the review by Nikki.
To Whom this may concern – I moved to Odenton from Northern Virginia. The sign out front reads Maryland Inspections while you wait. Inside the Business Owner greeted me with a smile and positive attitude. I was pleased to hear that this was a family owned business and has been here for over 25 years. Coming from a family of small business owners, in a small town, the personalized service that I received was a clear reminder of the old days. My car was inspected and serviced. They mentioned my brakes were worn, but I could still pass inspection. I opted to get the brakes done then. I will return for my regular maintanence intervals.
Awesome Car Care – Tony is awesome. The work that was done on my car was first rate and efficient. They even drove me to work and picked me up. What a great bunch down there.
