Thank you Michael and Carlos for saving us thousands of dollars with an accurate diagnosis and repair!
First rate! Let me start with this compliment! Your business was referred to me by my realtor, and he was spot-on in his recommendation. On a Sunday my truck suddenly and unexpectedly overheated, and I got it home after several hours of cooling off and adding a huge amount of coolant. The following morning I was able to carefully get it to Foreign Auto Services--they had the openings to get me in without an appointment. The shop opened early at 7:30 AM. The customer lounge where I entered was bright and clean, and the shop area (from my vantage point) appeared spotless with all tools neatly put back where they belonged. The staff was very friendly, caring, and helpful. The initial diagnosis was quick and efficient, albeit grim. I needed major work done, but Foreign Auto Services broke it down into components: 1) Good; 2) Needs Future Attention; and 3) Needs Immediate Attention. All of this was emailed to me, free of charge, detailing what I should get done now and what can wait until a later service visit. I opted to completed the items that required immediate attention, and the truck repairs were completed by the end of the business day. I was very pleased with the work performed and the pricing was right where I expected it to be for a water pump and drive belt replacement, coolant flush and A/C tensioner repair. I felt well-informed about the work and that I was not getting ripped off for unnecessary work. I have found my new mechanic! Thank you Foreign Auto Services!
Is this the unofficial way you guys charge by the hour? (grin) Happy Friday!
Carlos and the team here are awesome. They are straight forward and to the point when it comes to repairs. The shop is super tidy and professional.
