"I recently had two cars serviced by Alternative Auto Care, and I was quite impressed. I was looking for a non-dealership, local Honda and Acura specialist and was glad I found them. The owner, Dale, communicated with me personally throughout the process from start to finish. His technicians were very thorough with their detailed diagnostic work, and they completed the much needed repairs and maintenance for both cars in a timely manner which I greatly appreciated. I personally found this business to be honest and trustworthy, and if I need repairs and maintenance in the future, I feel I can count on them to get the job done."
"I highly recommend this family-run business. The staff is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and friendly; the services are reasonably priced and always completed in a timely manner. Dale, Derek, and their team has serviced 4 different vehicles for me over the years, and I have always been impressed and satisfied with their work."
"Appreciated Dale and the team's ability to get some serious work done on my car in a short period of time so I didn't have to cancel my travel plans. All around great service and customer care. They have my recommendation without question."
"Alternative auto care is informed and took great care of my van. They did not do unnessacary work and fixed the actual problem. Thank you!"
"Was rudely greeted when I arrived and treated like I was a nuisance to their afternoon. Tried to schedule and charge $130 AC diagnostics which would have been fine if they would have provided some information regarding there services and possible remedies. Definitely not customer friendly and will take my business elsewhere like Colorado Air and Electrical who is just down the road and providing free diagnostics. Response: Dale, Unfortunately, your summary may suit your needs to try and spin this review, however it is inaccurate. I was told to maybe try your shop by a local mechanic who is very honest and doesn't perform auto HVAC. I am a intelligent consumer and completely understand and will gladly pay for expert diagnostics. However, I expect to be provided the details of the services that I will be paying for and also some information regarding possible outcomes. Not repair price commitments, but information. The lack of customer service etiquette at your shop is very apparent. I gladly paid for expert diagnostics just down the street from you at a very customer friendly, honest and informative shop."
