After they finished the work I went in to have done I remembered that my alignment needed to be looked at. They fit that in with a tire rotation on the spot. They also replaced my very worn windshield wipers at the same time - and just before the rain hit. Sweet! The crew that works there are all very friendly and knowledgeable.
When someone can show me a part to help me understand it's function I'm all for it - and that's what I got from the onset. Plus, once they realized I was a chatter-bug the crew brought me in to the fold with office small-talk which was a fun way to wait out my repairs. This shop and Service Advisor Scott come recommended.
It speaks volumes when Michael's mechanics have been with him so long. They take the time to communicate with you and show you what's going on during particular diagnostics. It built my confidence in their abilities and they've educated me. This may sound trivial but, over the last 17 years I have driven in with a nail in a tire or light bulb out & they fix it on the spot with a nice greeting and send me on my way. I've had 3 new cars and taken all of them because the service writers are detailed, informative and courteous.
"""The difference""! They work WITH you.
I was always reluctant to take my cars for repair or service because Dealers always tried to ""upsell"" services. I know that's their job. However, Michael's will do the requested or needed repairs; the mechanics go over the whole car and the writers let me know if there are future repairs. It is more a plan of action."
I brought my car here for an oil change and bulb switch and in the process learned what else was going on with my car that might need attention. The staff was honest and explanatory about the major vs. minor issues so I feel secure in spending money on the things that really count.
I have been bringing my cars here for years. My experience has been nothing but great. They rebuilt my 63 Corvair after the Cam shaft broke. Put in a new clutch and fixed a difficult issue with my 95 Jeep Wrangler and rebuilt the moon roof in my 96 Maxima. They are honest and upfront and take the time to explain problems to the smallest detail. I have recommend Michael & Company to three friends that now use their services.
There was no pressure just sincere recommendations for things to be aware of and to follow up on down the road. The shop offers transportation within 10 mi. round trip if needed. I was able to wait the hour plus so didn't need it, but when I asked about a place to grab some coffee, etc., they shuttled me right over. I walked back for the fresh air and exercise, but that's a nice service.
I got my oil changed and later opened the hood and saw splashes of white powder near the battery, and dried up orange gunk around the coolant reservoir. I showed it to Bill and he said he would do a steam clean at no charge. So, not only did they clean the engine, they also washed the car and blacked the tires. Looked like a wax job! No cost to me. They give great service and make it right all the time.
I highly recommend Michael and Company Inc Automotive. Geddy Ly did a terrific job! My car looks brand new and I am a very satisfied customer. Mr. Ly was very thorough, fast and efficient in preparing the quote at a very affordable price. The quality of his work is outstanding and exceeded my expectations. My car was ready as promised. Excellent customer service!
I was both surprised and pleased at how quickly we were able to get an appointment. Plus, we were given a pickup time of 12pm and the car was ready on time. The staff was friendly and efficient. Based on my first time experience here, I would definitely recommend your company to others.
