"First of all I had a scheduled appointment at 10am. I had to wait 2 hours ! For them to start an oil change. Secondly they could not fix my flat. After 3 hours of waiting for a simple oil change and being visibly frustrated they tell me they put the wrong oil in my truck and had to pull back In to get the right oil put in. I would give negative stars if I could."
"This place is the best mechanic shop with awesome customer service making you feel like family. Keurig machine for us coffee people. Thankful Daniel helped us out he made this process smooth and was very nice. The work was done clean and in a timely fashion. So if you need a trustworthy mechanic shop in long Beach big Q is definitely the place to"
"I advise everyone who feels they got cheated from this place to file a complaint at the "California automotive bureau" just google this name, they take care of repair shops that have done wrong to clients. Simply do not take your car here, very bad service, they tried ripping me off with more money, gave me an initial price then it starting going up, told me the diagnose was "120" then the next day this Daniel guy tells me it's 240 just for the diagnostic. They charged 400dlls to "fix"my master cylinder,didn't do anything to the car, and the guy wanted to charge me 800 more just to see if replacing the slave would do it. Bottom line I ended up calling a towing service to get my non working car out of that place and funny thing, the towing guy told me that he has done the same thing 5 times, in other words that's the way these guy do business, they reel you in with a something small and they proceed to rip you off ."
"We went in here to have work done and It was not done correctly. We returned to gave it fixed for the third time and they broke something else. A man named Daniel was rude and unprofessional he told me he knew I was having a bad day huh! I was actually having a great day they refused to take accountability for service given and at the same time very rude. Warning to people that want professional services."
"No, just no, don't come in on a Sunday or ever. I asked Daniel what time my car battery would be done being replaced, he said "well we're only open for 2 hours, so obviously before that," very rude, it took him about 15 minutes to even put me in their system. And guess what time I was done? 30 minutes AFTER Close, total 2 and a half hours. Shouldve just gone to pep boys, at least it's trusted , they obviously take care of their ppl before you. No one worked on my car after it was in the shop for a good 30 minutes. After people would call in for help, the manager would say that people schedules are not his priority. Also, he decided to ring up a customer whos car wasn't finished, even when my car was done, and it still took 15 minutes for me to Pay. WOW. Well, wasting time and not caring showed a lot. Waste of time, Never again."
"These guys are great. When my alternator died on a Sunday, they were the only folks open. They fixed it same day and did some other stuff. When the alternator failed again, they honored the warranty, tested my battery, escorted me to AutoZone to collect on the battery warranty because it died too...they did the work free of charge...they answered all of my questions, informed of things I didn't even ask, and the entire staff was very courteous and approachable. They are not close to my house and kind of close to my work, and I will preferentially return to this shop for future work. I have no complaints, these folks are great."
