"So glad I found a place I can trust. I was visiting my mom and had a brake line failure. Had such great service that I will now be going here for service even though I live over an hour away. They helped in every way make a terrible day much better. These guys understand good old fashioned service. Thanks all of you!!"
"I took my car to do diagnostics and they did it and the service engine light that was on did not come anymore. So they mentioned they won't charge now but if it comes again I can bring it anytime.they also gave me a loaner vehicle during that time. I would recommend cars of America. Excellent customer service keeping you updated on the progress."
"I had a great experience here. Working full time, it is hard to find the time to drop off my car, particularly when CARS is not open on the weekends. However, they provided me with a loaner car so that I could drop my car off in the morning and pick it up after work. When I came back to pick up my car, all the repairs were done, my car was test-driven and it was also washed. They have a great referral program and every 5th oil change is free. Definitely recommend."
"As usual - top notch service: friendly people, loaner car, quality job, and on-time delivery. CARS of America is the best. Period."
"I have used Cars of America for many years, several cars. They have never disappointed. Fair pricing and prompt service. For an oil change, maintenance, or tires, would not take our cars anywhere else."
