DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY
The car: I had to get them to repaint my bumper 3 different times before it came out decent. The first time there was paint on my lights from where you could easily see it was not taped up properly and looked crusty around the edges. The second time they did well around the lights but on the lettering that says 'mustang' on the back there were bubbles and under that it looked crusty. On the second time, they tried to tell me the bubbles were previously there as well as the bad paint job underneath. However, at the scene of my accident I took up close photos of my bumper and you can clearly see that was not the case. They claimed the bubbles were from decals that were put there and painted over before I got my car, even though they refused to buff the decals off they managed to not get bubbles in my lettering the third time. This gives me reason to believe that it was from a rushed job since they weren't getting paid for it the second time around.
Customer Service: When my car was not right the manager got an attitude with me and told me he wasn't going to give me a rental car because I am under 25. I let the owner know and he was accommodating and wanted to make it right. Later that day they called me letting me know they got done with the second paint job. I went in and the owner had left. I pointed out what was wrong to the manager and again he got an attitude with me. In their lobby he proceeded to yell at me in front of the one customer that was in the lobby. Later that day a front desk person called me to let me know that even after the manager yelled at me and said he would buff the decals off free of charge that they were no longer covering that, then she proceeded to hang up on me. When I talked to the owner to get my car fixed for the 3rd time he was extremely rude and tried to tell me that the damage was previously there. I let him know that I have up close photos of my bumper and I can prove it was not there. He told me he 'didn't care what I had' The work that was done on my car showed it, as well as his employees attitudes.
I would have rather spent $100 more somewhere else to receive better costumer service and have my car done right the first time.
I believe the economy is not in a place where you can afford to have poor quality work with a combination of a poor customer service. I know this review is lengthy but I would never give someone such a poor rating without a worthy explanation.
