Unlike a number of the people posting hateful reviews, I understand business. I understand the negative impact of giving someone a quote over the phone when you haven't seen the problem, only to have a really angry customer in your face because they failed to tell you about ALL of the problems.
Auto Craftsmen isn't, nor have they ever been, the "cheapest" solution to get your car back on the road. They set a very high bar for safety AND reliability. The 230K miles on my Toyota 4Runner is a perfect example of how reliable they can make your vehicle.
You get what you pay for, whether it's food, clothing or automotive service.
If you're looking for cheap, don't go here. If you're looking for amazing quality work, fair and honest explanations of what's going on, keeping your vehicle safe and reliable... with free loaner cars and friendly staff, then go here. I have been for over a decade and have easily found them the best automotive mechanic option I've used (across 20 years and 3 states).
Always good service and a friendly atmosphere. Over the past few years I've had a number of services performed on my aging Prius by Auto Craftsmen. They've worked with me to find safe solutions while keeping the costs down. Plus they offer a local drop-off and pick-up van service which makes my life so much easier. I'm very satisfied.
I took my car there to be inspected. They failed my vehicle (a well-maintained Toyota SUV) and insisted on multiple fixes, to the tune of $1,800+. New battery, brakes, you name it. They even went so far as to say the windshield wipers (which I had replaced recently myself a month prior) did not clean/clear the windshield and needed to be replaced. I walked away. Took my car to two other mechanics who both gave me the same quote of of $300 for new break pads, that's it. Passed inspection. A year later and my wipers still work fine, and so does my battery!
If you know anything about vehicles or are just struggling to get by I do not recommend that you visit. No one has ever tried to so blatantly take advantage of me or my family in such a fashion before. Do not recommend.
I won't bring my car anywhere else but here! I drive past 5 other auto repair shops from home to get to the one I know I can trust. ASE Master Mechanics, friendly and reliable service, honest professionals.
My wife started bringing her 2009 Subaru there when it had around 40,000 miles. They love to replace things, and are really good at it. A while back she was told her rear brakes were getting low and to schedule an appointment. She did and asked for an inspection too. This time when they looked at the brakes they decided she also needed new calipers as well (about $2000), a new windshield, and new wiper blades even though hers worked great. She agrees to everything but the windshield and leaves (paying for her inspection despite failing because of a crack that was "improperly" filled). About a month later she goes back to get her snow tires put on and they tell her she needs new blades again. What really bothers me is, on top of everything else they charge you for, you also seemed to get dinged for new wiper blades every time you stop there.
