"I cannot say enough good things about Dan and the team at Cottman. They helped me through a very difficult warranty claim from substandard work at another shop. Dan worked with me to help coordinate the parts manufacturer, the supplier and the original repair shop. My work was done timely and the quality has been fantastic. Dan went above and beyond to ensure that I was able to get my warranty claim resolved and not have a huge expense for the services. I will be back anytime I need work done, and I highly recommend anyone else choose Cottman for auto repairs."
"The owners are some of the nicest people I've ever met. All of the auto mechanics are 100% honest and will take care of you. Price is not necessarily something you want to cut corners on with getting your car worked on. You want someone who's honest that's not going to overcharge you or lie to you and this place will never do that!"
"I was not given the transmission fluid change I requested. Cottman employee told me that codes came back from CVT that it is shifting from 1st to 4th and needed a new CVT transmission. It increases speed well but a new transmission is not what is required. What is required is a possible torque converter. I've had mechanics, mechanical engineers, and shops check my car since the visit and that is the only thing I need. So while I have purchased a Groupon for a Diagnostic check, I did also pay for a transmission fluid change. I understand the CVTs have intricate gears BUT I was asking for a fluid change. I was told I denied the service and that is why I was not given to me. I denied the service for a new transmission but was told I shouldn't change in my transmission. I do not understand how I can deny one thing and Cottman throws everything out. I am the paying customer and if I payed for a transmission fluid change which it specifically states in the title than I needed one. I'm not going to have some company try and take advantage of my money since I'm in college neither will I waste my time there again. I may be one voice but others need to know about this. P.S. Don't have an attitude with a customer over the phone when I'm pointing out a problem that I am having with the company."
"In a word: TREMENDOUS! Tony and his team are absolutely top notch. Dan runs the front desk and customer communications with excellence. Expert and thorough evaluation of needed service, conscientious and timely repairs, thoughtful explanations of service required and cost estimate, and very helpful, people-friendly manners. Handy location too! And, if time is spent by a customer on site, the clean and tidy waiting room has free wifi, cold water, nice restrooms, and smoke-free environment. Cottman of Columbia does a FANTASTIC JOB; now our first stop for any automotive needs."
"Danny and everyone who I spoke with, did above and beyond to help me. Not only did they fix my truck the correct way, they communicated multiple times a day to keep me up to date. I had a bad experience at a previous dealership shop and luckily, the warranty covered everything on the truck that needed to be fixed at Cottman. They were able to fix about 5-6k worth of damages :/. Thank you guys so much for keeping me posted daily and for a quick turn around considering the work -at -hand. Robby"
