"Great service. Highly recommend Arlington Shell. "
2011 Honda Odyssey
"Another service done well by the Arlington Shell team. High recommend their service. Our brakes were making a grinding noise - clear indication they needed to be removed and replaced. Arlington Shell replaced both brake pads and rotors. The service was performed same day. Great job. "
2013 Ford Fusion
"It was very easy to schedule the service. Jay was in constant communication with me from the beginning. They took my car right away when I dropped it off at the scheduled time. During the service, Jay noticed that my brake pads were low. He took a video and sent it to me to show me while I was at my office. The car was ready at the time they said it would be. Jay responded immediately to any questions I had. Great service!!! I'll certainly be back. "

2011 Honda Odyssey
"Great service again. This is the second time we used Arlington Shell. Once for an alternator repair, and now for a drive belt tensioner. A screeching / squeaking noise was coming from the engine compartment of our 2011 Honda Odyssey. The noise is gone! And the Honda is running great. We highly recommend Arlington Shell. "
2011 Honda Odyssey
"Our 2011 Honda Odyssey started to experience random dashboard lights turning on and off. And then the ABS light, check engine light and others came on and stayed on. The car eventually died on the side of the road. We were able to jump it and get it to our home for it to only to be completely DOA the next day. We tried to jump the car, but it was not responding. We used the roadside assistance feature in the Openbay mobile app to have Honda towed to Arlington Shell. A flatbed tow truck showed up within 45 minutes. Jay and the team at Arlington Shell did a great job at diagnosing the problem. It was the alternator. It needed to be replaced. He sent us video of the repair as it was happening. He kept us informed on how the repair was progressing and when it was ready for pickup. He had the vehicle back to us in no time at all. Great service. I would highly recommend Arlington Shell. "
2007 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class
"We had a brake line burst - fluid was everywhere. Used Openbay to find a local shop. Submitted a service request and received several quotes to repair the brake line. Arlington Shell was convenient, price was fair and their ratings and reviews were good. They serviced our vehicle same day of booking the service. We had our car back in a few hours. Great job. The car is running well. Highly recommend Arlington Shell. "

Response from the shop

"Rob, It was a pleasure helping you yesterday. Please let us know if we can be of any help for your future needs. As you can tell, Openbay is a great resource and our prices are highly competitive. Regards Jay K."

2013 Nissan Sentra
"Communicative, quick service, and good price. "
"Great experience, two cars, within one month. First our daughters Corolla was hit while parked and handled so very efficiently and respectfully, with attention to detail. Bob took great care of her, to explain the process, and help her through the learning curve of her first claim. Then it was my turn, when our Camry was sideswiped. Again a very pleasant experience, with great attention to detail. Thank you!!! Hope not to need you again any time soon, but would definitely recommend you to anyone that does."
"This place has great customer service by phone and in person. These are honest hard working guys who are just here to help. Highly recommend them."
"Bob and crew did another superb job on my Subaru. Naturally, I don't like seeing Bob....but when the need arises, i.e., fender bender, I bring my car or my wife's Prius here. He works as hard as possible to get you in and out! And the results are always excellent!"
"Good info. Extra work no charge. Returned car spotless and clean. Good work."
"I took my car in to have my bumper replaced. Not only did they replace the bumper in the time they predicted and do a beautiful job, they cleaned my car! Washed it, vacuumed the inside and wiped off the surfaces inside. And, oh, you should have seen my car to know what a wonderful gift this was. They also banged out some other dents in my 2005 Prius which is parked on the street most of the winter. I am so grateful to these men for all their help."
