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. "
2013 Nissan Sentra
"Communicative, quick service, and good price. "
"Had a nail in my tire. Drove around Arlington looking for a shop on Saturday to fix. Was turned down multiple times. These guys were knowledgeable, and straightforward. They stopped what they were working on to fix it in less than 15 minutes. Excellent job. This is the second time they were the ones in town to step up and make an emergency tire fix for me. I’ll always go here first!"
"Very bad services. I asked them to change oil and air filter to my honda civic 2015 plus checking the tires as i know i have problem in the tires. After 4 hours they called me to pick my carbecause supposedly it was ready, i went there, i found i still have the tire problem as the car system says. I asked them previously and again when i arrived to check the rear left , the guy checked it very fast and he said its fine i insisted so he checked it again and he found a nail in the specific tire i asked them to check. Then the sign of tire pressure was still there i asked them to check them again but the guy there keep arguing and saying the sign will go when u drive give t few miles blah blah.. same exact thing he said then he found the nail... there is no honesty in this gas station they do not do what they are asked to and keep arguing without listening to the client. I would never go back for car services, maybe gas but not car services. Very bad"
"Gas prices here wont do your wallet any favors but it is full service which l like. However, the main reason this place is worth going is the service when your car needs attention. George and Jack are both very friendly and honest as l have been taking my cars here for years. They always tell you exactly what you need to know to fix your car on a budget whenever it makes sense to do so without feeling like you are being overcharged. They also do not hesitate to let you know when you should see the mechanics at the dealership if it comes down to that. Otherwise, they are more than able to repair or replace most fluids/brakes/wheels/tires, belts, a.c. units and recharges as well as many other car ailments that do not require a dealership visit. Thanks, Arlington Shell!"
"Failed two vehicle inspections, but staff explained new requirements paitiently and satisfactory."
"Awesome place to get quick car work done! The staff is a pleasure to work with, they are honest and sell you only what you need repaired. The work was done right, I haven't had any issues since. Also the store and gas is at a good price and in a great location. 10/10 highly recommend and will use again. Thank you!!"
