The Lake Country's Best Auto Repair Service

Thank God for Nelson's Auto Service in Hartland. I have a 2007 Honda Accord that I was told by another repair shop needed a timing belt/water pump replaced at 70,000 mile check. I got a second opinion at Nelson's Auto and boy was I glad I did! Rick took a lot of time explaining to me that that was an unneccesary repair at this time. On the newer Honda's that is not done until @120,000 miles. I will definitely have that service done at the proper time and have them service all of our vehicles. Knowledgeable, and honest !

I stand by my reputation, and my customer base. I hire highly trained ASE certified technicians who have been with Nelson's Auto Service, Inc. Hartland, WI. for more than 17 years. With the addition of my new General Manager, Rick Becker (October 2009)I offer the Lake Country Area the best service competitively priced. My employees are highly trained and honest. I would like to respond to "jon-oy" in person.

Unfair, Typical Ripoff Mechanic Mentality

He quoted me 400$ for a part and install, had me tow it over to his shop with my trailer/car. when i got there he quoted me 515$ and said " would you like a diagnostic test too?" so i said " yes " he then informed me that it would cost another 95$ He then muttered with a sarcastic voice " or would you like me to just throw parts at it "

so i agreed and said, Fine, ill take the 515$ + 95$ test. he then walks away from my trailer, and said " just get it off the trailer and when your done come bring me the keys" as he returned to go sit down and watch television.

i couldn't get it off by my self, i tried but no luck, so i just drove away, this guy is a real tool and i will not ever be going down there again.

oh and his "diagnostic test" is Hooking it up to a OBD2 Reader, Which You can just go to a Auto zone and ask to use theirs for free.

What a pain in the ***

As the owner of Nelson's Auto Service, Hartland, WI. I feel that I need to respond to this review. One, I invite "thedonz" to call me to discuss his aledged encounter with my business, 262-966-2323 ask for Skip. Two, I question whether this actually happened at my shop or has "thedonz" confused us with another shop in the area. Three, WE DO NOT HAVE A TELEVISION! Never did and never will. Fourth, we do not charge $95 for a diagnostic test, we in fact charge $125. Yes, you can get a free test at Auto Zone, but their test does not tell you what is causing your problem, and does not fix your problem. Our ASE Certified technicians, whom we send to school (and pay for their classes) read the test, find the problem, and fix it. Does the Auto Zone test do that? Is the person plugging the OBD2 reader in ASE certified and qualified to do the repair?. All of our work is warrantied for 12 months or 12,000 miles. Do you get that from Auto Zone? We have had a similar negative review on another site and that site management team investigated and found that the review was not legitimate, but someone impuning my reputation. I stand on my 28 years of being in business in the Lake Country and by the customers I have, many who have been with me from the start of my business in 1982. This review is a slur on my reputation, on the highly qualified and honest people who work for me. I believe this review was intended to hurt my business. Thank you, Skip Nelson, owner, Nelson's Auto Service, Inc., Hartland, WI
