I have been dealing with S&S for years. Great honest guys. My sister's muffler was having a problem making noise I was out of town and I told her to take it to them. I was telling her maybe her muffler might be cracked. She took it there and there was a piece of metal that somehow got caught and was making noise. They just removed it for her and that was it. No Charge. I was thinking now how many places would have seen a young lady come in and not have made something up and charge her an arm and a leg.
Besides that in all my years of going to them, they have been professional in everything they do. They do excellent work. They even fixed the problem I had with my Benz.
I am taking my time to write this because I really feel like when you deal with S&S you are dealing with honest professionals.

I wanted to get my car inspected by S&S because it is so close to me. However, I was dissuaded when I called up and was told that since it was 12:30 pm on a Saturday and the inspection guy went home at 1 pm, he "[didn't] feel like doing the inspection at that time". Fair enough. I guess they don't want my business.
I went to West Side Tire & Automotive and they did it without a problem.

There is a popular saying that 'Do not judge a book by its cover" and juding a book by its cover was exactly my impression when I chance upon S & S looking for a place to have my VW Passat inspected. The guys took it into the garage on a cold November morning and I was shocked at the modern machines they had to inspect my car.
In addition, the folks treated everyone like family and did not charge as much as others I had called. Although, that was my first time being there, I very much felt at home with the mechanics at S & S.
I highly recommend them because of their professionalism and 'warmth.'

I cannot thank Gino and his team enough. I was driving with me two daughters when I drove over something on the road. I thought at first it was a flat. The noise increased as I continued to drive. I met a man who suggested coming here. What a blessing. They took me in right away. The damage to the car was far worse than a flat. With a diagram they explained what happened and what needed to be done. They were supportive and straight with me. Team was very nice, professional, place looked clean and new. They had parts in the waiting room with diagrams which I found education and informative when they used it to explain exactly what was happening. Thank you West Side Tire & Automotive!!!!!!!!
Bad customer service! I had a nail in my tire and I called to ask if they had a used tire for my car I gave him the measurements and he said to come in. So I go and I can't find the key to my tire locks the guy takes it off and he was very nice. He goes to talk the manager and they come back and confirm I wanted a used tire then tell me they don't have a used one. Only a new one. I ask him the price he said $125 + tax (used is $50 as per our phone convo) I got so upset because I called first I didn't just show up! I couldn't spend $125+ at the moment which is why I called! He didn't offer me a discount for the new tire for the trouble. I said you already took off the tire. His response was "we can put it back on" like no attempt to keep me as a customer no care for the trouble at all. Then I had to pay for the removal of the lock. ( it was not a big deal really only $10) but after all that you can't even say I'm really sorry for the trouble don't worry about the lock. I left there so upset. Never going back.
The place engages customers with contradictory advice/technical double-speak in order to get you to purchase more services from them than you need. Later on when you argue over the work done, they tell you that you told them you wanted both services when you made it clear you only needed one. Then as a gesture of good faith they say that they'll discount the additional work that you never wanted in the first place in order to get you to agree to pay for it.
Left the place feeling like I needed a shower. I'm out an additional $90+tax for repairs I didn't want; I'd ignore the reviews describing this place as honest. Typical tire shop BS.
DO NOT COME HERE. I came in because my wheel bearing was going bad. At the time I did not know what the issue was so I brought my car there for a diagnostic and oil change while at it. Gino told me they would figure out the problem and call me back in the afternoon, mind you this was in the morning. Almost 5 o clock closing I called them and he says oh yeah its finished. So much for the phone call. I head back to Gino to inform me that his guys had to "build a stability cover and it took his guys all day" whatever that means. I ask him if the noise is gone and he says yes. So I look at the bill and its a whopping $375 job. After asking him to show me exactly what it is he did he brings me back and points to a couple zip ties under my car. I drove the car and the noise was gone, so I payed and left. Day after my car comes back with the noise. Went back three times for it to go away, to the point where Gino already showed his true side. An old man who angry and likes to rip people off. I went ahead and called my bank to reverse payment on them. DO NOT COME HERE unless you like to get ripped off. I went to another mechanic and all I needed was a new wheel bearing then the noise finally went away. Gino and his family did not seek to help they only saw an opportunity to rip off when a young man with little knowledge of cars walked through those doors. -ye
I've had work done twice here - alignment and tire mounting. The work in general is fine, but some attention to detail is somewhat lacking.
The first time I went for an alignment, I came home and found a vice grip still attached to one of the tie rods. I returned it the vice grip.
Second time around was to get tires mounted. I left the shop with a pulsating brake pedal. The rear drum was improperly aligned after removing and mounting wheels causing the pads to contact at an oblong rather than a circular motion. Owner ensured fix before leaving again.
Shop is generally kept clean, owner is very nice and the work seems fine, but a little more attention to detail might prevent these things from happening.
