Wish I could give zero stars for this business. The tint was a birthday gift from my girlfriend and has turned into a nightmare. I have been to this location FOUR times and now have to pick up my car and return ONCE again, and who knows maybe even again if they STILL can't get things right. The vehicle is a 2013 dodge avenger , the drivers side window has razor like cuts and particles under the tint. The other problem is the front brow where a dot matrix is. If the owner would of said he couldn't tint that properly it would of never been asked, instead he said nothing and tinted it anyways and now it looks like an at home tint job partially raised and hazed. My second visit to the shop I asked him to cut a piece of vinyl to place over the dot matrix and he agreed to do so after saying it would cost $40.00. I told him I could drop it off Friday and he agreed. When I got home to check the rest of the tint I noticed the film was not aligned on the window properly and had a large gap where the tint meets the top of the window. There were also razor like marks we deep indents and particles stuck under the tint. I called him and let him know what I noticed and he said he would take a look at it when I dropped it off. So I dropped it off as promised and he called me today saying he did not place the vinyl, will not issue a refund, although he did admit the tint on the drivers side window needed to be replaced but for any work to be done I would have to come get my car ONCE MORE and bring it in again during the week. I asked him why did he even agree to let me bring it in if he was not doing any work and he hung up on me twice. He blames the imperfections on being double booked and under staffed. Then the owner contends he should of charged me $100 dollars more like he did me a favor! He plays with prices and downplays his mistakes. I would strongly recommend you go elsewhere otherwise you will be stuck dealing with an owner who has no respect for his customers. I've seen my same year and model car done professionally without flaws, including the brow on the windshield at plenty of other shops in the area. If it was not for the fact my girlfriend already paid, and can not get a refund, I would not even bother with this owner anymore. Save yourself some serious frustration, read the other bad reviews and take heed, this guy Steve is highly unprofessional.



the shadiest "owner" that i've...

the shadiest "owner" that i've met in my life., the edges of the tint was hanging off the edge and crooked like no other (ive had 5-6 tints done on my cars before elsewhere) when took it back, he said, "are you NUTS? you complaining about this?"

wow... I was lost for words when I was treated like this after having them put up the tint... a big mistake. I must be NUTS, because I am complaining about strip hanging off the edge and the misaligned cut that they did??

never ever in my life will go back. People asked me if I did the tint myself after looking at it... embarrasing

I am the owner of Car Pretty and yes I did call the customer "nuts" because he complained that the job was totally unsatisfactory. Complained that he never saw such a bad job in his life. He failed to mention the car was a Pontiac Soltice in which the back window is nearly impossible to do which the headrests in the way.There is no way of removing them. The main complaint was that there was a little piece of tint not cut straight. Well the glass borders a cloth convertible top and we didn't want to trim it so close as to cut a hole in the convertible top. What he also failed to mention is that we did the job cheaper than he was "supposedly" was quoted plus we gave him a free windshield strip.

I've read the other reviews and I don't understand what they are talking about. Car pretty is definitely the best window tint shop around. I've been going there for years and they have always been very professional, quick and amazing work. I would never take my car to another place. There will always be unhappy people, but I've read plenty of reviews on other searches and all of those have said how great this place is. You won't find better work in the Northeast!

Mediocre job, terrible customer service

Brought in my brand new car to get tinted. The staff wasn't friendly at all, especially the owner. The car was not ready when promised. When I came to pick up the car, no one explained anything. They just gave me the keys and said I'm good to go. The back windshield had all kinds of bubbles, while the part that had a dot matrix looked like an utter disaster. When I brought the car back in 3 weeks, they said they could try to fix it, but it might not look a whole lot better. When I wanted the tints off due to their poor quality, they said they'd have to charge me (so much for the lifetime warranty).

I took the car to another shop to have the back window de-tinted and re-tinted and it came out PERFECT. Looks as if it was factory-tinted. Car pretty gets a lot of good reviews, but they completely screwed up with my car and tried to brush me off when I complained. Seems like their lifetime warranty is very conditional and is somewhat of a scam. Heard a lot of good things, but would never recommend to a friend, especially for an expensive car and even more so if you care about good customer service.



not happy

these guys were the cheapest! That should have been my first warning. Cheap price = CHEAP TINT It's only been three months since they tinted my car and the tint is turning PURPLE allready when I called they kind of blew me off so I went back and they blew me off again saying they only warrantee against bubbles witch are now starting to form. Best price aint allways the best deal BEWARE!!!!

claimed iconBusiness Response11/09/2010

I understand your concern. We use only the finest tint from LLumar, who is considered the leader in the window film industry. We provided you with a LIFETIME warrantee that covers fading, bubbling, peeling or scratching not to mention any color change. I have not experienced any of the film we install to turn "purple" and if that is the case we will remove and replace any tint FREE of charge. I alpologise for any inconvience you encountered but Car Pretty stands behind their work 100% and your welcome to return to us if you were't satisfied.

You Can Watch Them Tint Your Car

I was there to get tint done sometime during the winter months it was cold out. At first there were small bubbles on my windows, just a few of them, and they did go away after a few days which I understand is normal, I was totally happy with the work done there and I even put my window down right after they did the tint and I still had no issues and the tint, it still looks perfect ! Like I already stated its nice to be able to watch them while working on your car since the waiting area is right there. Good job guys I've recommended you already to a few people. The location is ok, its pretty easy to find. I will go back to give them more business!

Shop around and avoid these clowns

Its a shame it had to come to this because this is coming from a once loyal customer of car pretty. I have been going to car pretty since its old location off of grant ave. I've had lets see here... 98 neon R/T,01 ford focus,03 sebring,92 mitsubishi eclipse, 08 ford focus all done by car pretty over the years. i always noticed the owner had a i dont give a blank attitude but that really didnt bother me because he does good work but today was the final straw. My wife called in a few days ago to get a quote on a 2007 2 door chrysler tinted the price ? 160 ...fair enough. i call up today and the price magically went up to 190 ! its a 2 door car with small windows... how can my 4 door focus cost less ? i asked the gentlemen why the price was so high and he got real offended ... talking about how its more tedious to do 2 door cars and how the angles are difficult ..... yeah right buddy ! I'm no sucker. I mentioned i've been there numerous times before but he didn't give a **** and pretty much said well we're here if you want service. I called my buddy and he recommended a place on state rd and princeton and sure enough the price was only 130 and get this.... they use Llumar film and its also computer cut with lifetime warranty. Car pretty does good work but look else where to avoid getting robbed and treated like your an chrysler looks just as good if not better than the work car pretty does and ive got an extra 60$ in my pocket.



Thank You

Can't say enough good things about the amount of service I received from Car Pretty along with their owner, Steve. My car turned out great and there is NO other place I would ever go to or reccommend other than Car Pretty. Between the job they did on my car not to mention the service I received, I was very happy.



Excellent work

i am extremely please with how the tint turned out. they are very efficient and make sure there are no errors with their work. the staff is very friendly and helpful. they use the finest tint and their prices are also the cheapest i could find in the tri-state area. I would definitely recommend Car Pretty to anyone who wants a quality tint.

Go else where

Well I got my car tinted at CAR PRETTY. They did a great job the first time took care of me treated me like a king. A few months later I sent a friend of mine over there to get his car tinted also. They took care of him. While I was there I told him about how the tints are all scratched up from bottom of the window to the top. The workers gave me this funny look like I was nothing then said something about sand from the beach got into the windows so they won't correct the problem. I spoke to the owner about it and he agreed to correct the problem I brought my car back in to get fixed he just gave me the run around. I had a very bad experience with these people they'll take your money and just kick you to the curb. Also if you do decide to get your car tinted from them make sure you get a receipt. He didn't offer a receipt when I first went there he just said we have it in file.



Great job!

how often can you say positive things these days about the quality of service? these guys are real pros.i called on thursday and i spoke with steve asked about tinting my car windows he told me about the process and also let me know how much... he told me he has weekend hours which was great because i work mon-fri... so i went on saturday had a 9:00 am appointment i was early they took me right away and i was out of there shop by 10:15 am...

Go Somewhere Else

The customer service is one of the worst I have ever encountered. Someone called me a few hours before my appointment and said that I could come earlier. I went right in only to find that there was at least a 2 hour wait; why did they call me and tell me to come earlier if they were behind schedule? I rescheduled (2 months in advance) for 8:30am - their first appointment of the day. I still had to wait 2 hours, because someone had come in a few minutes before me and they took that car. This was particularly annoying because I specifically asked to be the first in so that I wouldn't have to wait. The tint job didn't come out too well. They were training a new employee and he ruined a few films on my car. After about 3 redo's, the already extremely frustrated worker rushed the job and got me out of there. I waited about a week and noticed that the film started to bubble at the edge of the glass on one of the doors. Also, there were bubbles on a rear window. I called them to schedule an appointment, preferably on a Saturday because I work during the week. In an annoyed tone of voice an employee told me that they are too busy and they only do warranties during the week, during the day. When I tried to explain that this wasn't convenient for me, he hung up on me. The owner followed up shortly. After about 2 months of trying to accomodate both schedules: the Car Pretty Tinting rarely works after 5:30-6pm I was unable to get them to take me on a Saturday, so I had to leave work early to have their mistakes fixed. The guy said that it's a small problem and there is no need to put a new film. The bubble is smaller but it is not completely gone and you can still see it. I am very unhappy with the experience and do not recommend the services of this shop. They always overbook and are constantly behind schedule. If they offer a lifetime satisfaction guaranteed warranty, they should stand behind it and not make it nearly impossible for the customer to be happy.

Appropriate Action

While we appreciate and value our customers, we don't appreciate a negative review given to a fellow tint shop bashing them, yet praising our name...especially on a public forum/blog. It's not appropriate and unfair to CarPretty's business reputation. CarPretty is a reputable shop, give them the chance to rectify the situation. If you haven't yet, talk to the owner and make sure he is aware of the situation, he is a stand up guy. CarPretty has experienced tinters who are more than capable of putting out quality work.
