What to Know About: Auto Damage »
When a car is damaged by an accident or weather, what can be repaired and what must be replaced? Or is it time to buy a new car?
had what I needed to complete my project.
I brought my car in a year and a half ago to get new front brakes put on. I had a quote from a different shop telling me I needed all new pads, rotors and calipers. Bucky's looked at my brakes and said I didn't need new calipers, which I thought was very honest of them. I ended up paying just over $300, which I thought was a good price. Fast forward a year and a half later to me taking my car into the Honda dealership and asking them to check my front brake pads because my brake power felt extremely weak. They checked all of them for me and told me that the front brake pads were at 1mm and 5mm, were obviously wearing unevenly, and the rotors are completely rusted and not savable. I hardly ever drive my car so there is NO WAY that I should be having to fork out more money to buy new brakes again already. Obviously the people at Bucky's lied to me and didn't give me new, quality brake pads and rotors. They most likely just resurfaced my old rotors and pocketed the money that I gave them for new rotors and gave me super cheap, crappy brake pads. So much for being honest. I will never waste my money at this shop again.
One star seems awfully high for a company that did perhaps as much as $10,000 worth of damage...likely intentional...to my rare luxury collectable car. They damaged the safety features as the Pre collision avoidance system. No wonder they have the worst evaluation from the Better Business Bureau of any company ever rated....probably lower than Enron,
Beware of this company!!! They installed a second hand Pull Right RV hitch in a completely unsafe negligent manner and then refused to pay for damage to my truck and RV. They are not an honorable or safe company to do business with.
Great service! Fair pricing! Honest people to deal with. Mechanics d o a great job! I like the fact that they will install any part I bring in. Five star repair shop!
I grew up in tacoma since 85' heard great things of shop, oh how times have changed. I drove all the way up from chehalis and boy was it a waist of time.. over dressed preppy at the counter talked how he was under paid as a gm at car toys and was well paid by Foss car audio and really I don't care. I want a system in my car and not once did he even try to show me any equipment b u t more worried about how deep my pockets were.. JERK is the least I can say and I will not ever shop FOSS CAR AUDIO TACOMA nor will I recommend them to ANYONE. don't wast your time or money with them. There over priced and arrogant
Dan and Diana run a first rate business. They are both considerate of their customers and conscientious in their work. Their pricing is reasonable and they always give me the lowest price available regardless of whether or not I have the coupon. They have always been quick to diagnose the problem and they always quote the cost up front. They never try to talk me into replacing something that could be repaired nor doing a repair if it doesn't need to be done.
MARVIN is AWESOME!!! He has the best customer service, very honest, and gets down to business! I took my Honda in there and now it drives better than it ever did! I would definitely go back!
The best They listen to your needs Diagnose the problem with excellent mechanics very fair prices I've been here three separate times and have been very. Satisfied each time
STAY AWAY. They try to rip you off more than normal. Tried charging me $700 for something that took me 30 min a youtube video and about $120 for the part.
