Terrible! I had a noon appt. Got there 15 minutes early because it was my first time there. They still didn't call me til a quarter to 1. Then, the quack, Dr. Schecter SQUINTS at the machine while he's measuring my vision. Checks my eyes with that annoying lil light and tells me I have astigmatism and that he'll have to fit me for toric lenses, even though I know for a fact that my astigmatism isn't bad enough for that. I should've walked out then, but I went ahead and let him dilate my pupils and he proceeds to tell me that he wants to do tests to rule out glaucoma. I'm 33 years old.... And he based his information on the dramatic difference between the optic nerve in my left and my right eyes... Which has gone unchanged for the past 30 years.
If you like stories and to waste your time, this is definitely the place to get your eyes checked.
Fine customer service – Perhaps things have changed there since the comments posted here over a year ago.
My experience on New Year's Day was very good. I requested the most inexpensive quote on tires and was not upsold at all. In less than an hour and a half I was on my way. They inflated my "limp-in" spare and informed me of another worn tire and the near need for front brake pads. Again, without any pressure to do the work at that time. Eddie helped me, I give him high marks.
If your experience is like mine, I can't see why you wouldn't be very pleased.

They take forever and they still screw up! – HORRIBLE!!!! First off, there was less than 5 people in line and it must have took over 20 minutes for someone to finally help me. There were four registers but only two people working there; and they kept on disappearing. When they finally got to me, a lady said she had been waiting over 2 hours for an alignment and oil change so she left without the oil change done.
I went there for a tire change, and they said my tire was loose because of the bearing (which they put on for me a couple years ago). I admit I don't know much about cars but I'm pretty sure that when they did it, they put it on loose and w/o the clippers on causing it to wear down and be replaced sooner than necessary SO THEY CAN MAKE MORE $$. How come the other ones they didn't touch were fine when I've had the car for over 6 yrs. and never had to replace them?
While I was complaining and the manager said it wasn't their fault I overheard that the other lady with the alignment called to complain because her car was already pulling. Coincidence? I think not!
