2013 Toyota Corolla
2010 Acura MDX
"Another outstanding experience with Charles Automotive! Super fast service with calls and texts to keep me updated on the status. Highly recommended. "
2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
2008 Volkswagen Touareg 2
"Very satisfied with the prompt service and communication on what needed to be done. In addition, taking the time to work on my vehicle at the right cost and not the highest. The owner immediately followed up and asked how the service went. That's good business. Went back a few days later for an oil change. Support Local small businesses for sure."
2013 Toyota Camry
2015 Chevrolet Impala
1998 Honda Accord
"First-time customer to Charles Automotive, and I'm very happy with the service. The facilities are clean and well-organized and the customer service was top-notch throughout the process. I ended up getting additional work done, and they gave me significant discounts on the parts. I'm a happy customer, and I'll definitely be back. Recommended!"
2014 Honda Accord
"Quick! Great prices! "
2002 Acura MDX
"I was very clear that I wanted to get the 105,000 K scheduled maintenance for Acura. When I got there, they weren't clear what I wanted done until I explained to them what I had paid for. As far as I know, they did the oil change, tire rotation and changing of the spark plugs. But I believe, none of the other recommendation off the scheduled maintenance was not done. Please ask them to confirm or please refund back my money."
2007 Acura RDX
"Quick tire patch -- was in and out in less than 20 minutes. Thanks guys!"
2010 Hyundai Santa Fe
"Great communication, quick and professional service. Would highly recommend!"
"Efficient, effective, friendly, fast. What more could you possibly want from your automotive repair center? I brought my car in early (0730). The customer service rep said that the shop would call me when the car was ready for pickup. Shops routinely say that but often fail to notify you when the car is ready for pickup. Not Charles. They texted and called. I really appreciated the extra effort to keep me informed. I plan to use them again for my other car. Highly recommend. Thanks!"
2007 Acura RDX
"This shop was excellent! Service was priced competitively, close to Metro, texted with diagnostic report, everything new and technologically advanced. Texted when car was done. Clean shop with nice staff. Highly recommend!"
2008 Hyundai Azera
"They brought my car right in at the appointment time. They did the work in a timely order"
2008 Toyota Prius
"The service manager was very open to my situation and flexible as far as what he was going to do. I am a part time do it yourselfer, and got in over his head. He did everything he could fix it cheap!"

"I had a great experience at Charles Automotive. They took care of my oil change in a snap. They also gave me quotes for future service needs they observed my car will need down the road, but were not pushy about me getting those services on the spot. They are efficient and professional, and I plan to go to them again in the future!"
"located the shop through Groupon for a discounted synthetic oil change called and was scheduled at 730a. received courteous attention. shop also shared recommendations on fixes that needed to be completed by the seller before my 60 day tags expired. waiting room was clean and fresh coffee was available. car service was completed and my coupon discount was honored. it was also within 15 mins of my home location. Keep up the good work. Stay trustworthy"
"Great staff. Very helpful. Went in after a flat tire, they got me in right away and took care of it."
"Good, friendly service. I was there for an oil change and they didn’t try to talk me into having more, expensive repairs done at the same time."
"DO NOT GO HERE FOR ENGINE WORK. Went back in January to replace pump, spark plugs, and tracking belt. They gave me an overpriced tag for the work - which I was able to haggle down by informing them of other cheaper locations. 20 minutes after I pick up, my car won’t start in a parking lot I stopped by. They tell me that they will come over to help, but failed to inform me that they weren’t coming for some time about an hour later. After finally picking o my car and checking it, they tell me nothing is wrong. My car starts to act weird again two weeks later. I call to inform them that yet again there’s a problem. They laugh at me on the phone saying that I wasn’t in their customer system and that I probably called the wrong place. I take my car elsewhere and the mechanic tells me that a few things were not entirely screwed in and could have caused me engine to explode. A few more weeks pass by and something else goes wrong in my car. I take it to another mechanic and they say that the spark plugs are also not screwed in entirely. I am currently sitting at this mechanics place waiting for the spark plugs to be fixed because god forbid will I ever go back to Charles Automotive. Why would I want them to screw up my car again? Bottom line, sloppy, overpriced work is why this place is not the ideal choice for car owners. Honestly, go to your local Exxon. They are much better priced and do a good job. Don’t fall into a 2+ month ordeal like I did because of this shop."
