I recently brought in my Chevy Cruze for check engine light issue. The guys called to discuss the issues, checked if anything was on the recall list, and kept me informed on the status of a part being delivered from out of state. I am always satisfied with my service here.
This was my third time coming to this place and they didn't disappoint. They are always fast and professional and they have the best deals. I recommend this place to anyone needing automotive work done. Great Job!!!!!!
Service for a smog test and wheel alignment was prompt and professionally done. The service coordinator was courteous.
Very pleasant. Josh was very helpful. Thank you!
I arrived for my appointment and was immediately served. Within a half hour My car had been smog tested and I was on my way. Pleasant to work with and courteous. Thanks!
Has consistently done good work at a fair price, including no-cost warranty work when a replacement part failed. I recommend Poway Precision Auto.
I really am glad I brought my car here. They are fun, friendly and Straght forward.
They fit me right in to the next day schedule, estimated worst case scenario and then managed to finish repairs for much less! Good, knowledgeable, polite staff. I will be bringing them my business again!
Thanks for the excellence service! I can always count on the two of you to do the absolute best job possible. Your mechanics have been excellent and their expertise is exceptional
I took my truck in for it's DMV required smog certification. Had a 2:00PM appointment, but arrived early. Not a problem. Precision took me right away, completed my service in about 15 minutes & I was done. Very professional, knowledgeable & friendly staff.
I went in for a smog check, they were great fast and efficient and the coupon said 41.20 out the door and it was. There were no hidden costs. I will use them for all my other auto needs as well.
I would like to say that precision came recommended as the place to go for an alignment. I called and made an appointment for today. I got there 30 min. early and was able to get right in. Mike was the service tech and Jay assisted me at the desk. It only took 45 minutes and that included a tire rotation. The car is now perfect again, There are a couple of minor repairs they would recommend but there was no pressure from them. I am going to go back and have some other work done very soon. Just wanted to give Jay and Mike a huge THANK YOU for being professional and respectful of my time and money.
I came here when my brakes were making noise. they inspected the brake system and the rest of the entire car for free and told me exactly what needed to be done. they even brought me into the shop to show me the worn parts on my car. i opted to take my car back so i could shop around before i committed to buying anything from them. they ended up having the cheapest estimate and got the job done while i waited in the lobby. great service, nice guys, and quality work. will definitely be coming back here.
If you want exceptional service by a caring team of people that are honest and up front - then this is the place for you. I plan on being a long term customer - Dirk & Jimmy made me feel like family and were able to help me right away. A pleasure to work with any day of the week. Kenny who worked on my car took time to answer my questions thoroughly - nothing bad to say about this team. Will send as many referrals as I can. Thanks again for the great service.
Love this shop! Trustworthy and honest guys :-). Have been going here for a few years now and wouldn't trust my car with anyone else!! Thanks for your hard work guys! Funny reading some of these reviews ... Really goes to show you can't please everyone!
I took my car here for a smog check. I called for an appointment and they were ready for me at the appointed time. I ambled over from the waiting area to the inspection area and the mechanics were not irked by my presence. They chatted amiably with me while going about their tasks. The mechanics were very thorough and did not seem to be handling the car roughly. The inspection was completed in a reasonable time. The manager and mechanics are courteous and friendly. The only reason it's not a 5-star is because I had printed out a coupon from their website, but was still charged a little over the price on the coupon. Still, I'd definitely go back for the quality of service and customer care.
I was referred here for and alignment and scheduled an appointment. The place was easy to find with a large sign off the main road. When I arrived they gave me an estimate and told me the work would take a couple of hours. One of the guys mentioned a shopping center near by. It has a coffee shop, some eateries - even a movie theater, and took about a 10 min walk to get to. My car was done when they said it would be, and the cost was as estimated. The staff was great, - friendly and professional. A few weeks later I returned to have some recommended repairs done and had the same great experience.
Thanks to the skillful way problems were diagnosed and repairs made, our 1998 Chevy pickup truck performed well on our return trip to FL.
According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
