Total price quoted - a sign on the outside $30.00 off 4 tires - would not honor - ended a few days ago. Given price, left vehicle get a call later they needed to get different tires the price would be higher. GO to pick up vehicle - price quoted was not right made a mistake - totally untrustworthy.
We are so sorry, for the unsatisfactory experience you had at our store, we hope that you will give us another chance as we work to improve every day.

Fast service and polite. I bought 4 new tires. I felt not everything was adequately explained regarding the warranties, future services, and the rebate program. He just seemed more interested in getting the payment transaction completed. Also I would like to see the itemized bill before turning over payment.
We are sorry that you don't feel like you were taken care of how you should be, please feel free to give us a call so we can handle any unfinished business you may have.

I felt as though the staff was trying to take advantage of me because I am a young female who seems to not know a lot about cars. However, two members of my family are mechanics and I have learned a few things. Also, I can always call them and ask them what they think about what I am told at a repair shop. In this case I was told I needed almost $1,500 worth of work and that I should pay for it because otherwise I need to trade in my car and that would be a lot more money. When I looked at what the work was it was not stuff that would keep my car from working properly. You should teach your staff not to try to take advantage of people because it will lose you business very quickly.
Thank you for your review, I would really like to speak with you about this matter. Would you mind giving me a call at (434)990-9999, I want to make sure this does not happen again.

I use to bring all my vehicles into this location until two of my vehicles showed up with the same broken wheel bearing issue after having routine maintenance performed not to far apart from one another. Not a coincidence!! From this location only, in Ruckersville, VA
We are very sorry that this happened to you. Did it happen at the Ruckersville location like you wrote or the Seminole location where you posted this? I would like to speak with you to hear exactly what happened if you would give us a call at (434)990-9999.

Positive: The guys that I have dealt with, from the shuttle driver to the desk reps are very courteous. They are apologetic when something goes wrong like it did yesterday.
The negative: I dropped my car off at 7:30 a.m. for a tire replacement and a/c check. I called at 2:00 p.m. to be picked up by the shuttle, and at that time was told that my car was ready. When I arrived I noticed my car in the same parking space as it was when I brought it in, my temporary donut tire still on. The car hadn't even been looked at yet! The guys were apologetic and I stayed for the work, but I ended up not leaving the shop until 4:30 p.m. One of the guys told me that they were shorthanded because two techs did not show up for work that day. Maybe those techs should be fired and hire some techs who are willing to come to work. I suspect that what might have happened is that my car and I were forgotten about, but they certainly weren't going to tell me that were they?
We are very sorry for what happened to you on Tuesday. I would like it if you gave us a call at corporate (434)990-9999 to tell me more about what happened. We want to make sure this never happens again to you or anyone else.

I have gotten trustworthy diagnoses of repair necessities. After a dealership came up with a 1100 brake job , I had them look at said brakes and all was needed was the standard brake job. Though, the last two oil jobs they have not set oil life indicator.

I am beyond pleased with my experience with Swett Dentistry. All staff are quite professional as well as being pleasant, caring and helpful! I've always been filled with extreme dread when it comes time for dental visits, but after my first visit with Dr. Rebecca Swett all my fears and anxiety were allayed! Dr. Swett is highly professional, knowledgeable, and importantly also for me, very kind and attentive to her patients needs. Now, I actually look forward to the visits knowing that I will be well cared for!!!Read More …
