I wanted to rate SJM AutoWerks at least 7 stars but Google limits ratings to 5 stars... truly a pity, really. They deserve, rather, earn all the accolades in their reviews. Anyone who has their vehicle serviced at a dealer, or one of the big chains for that matter, is simply foolish and wasting a lot of money. I have worked in the service department of a dealer, and the "free" vehicle inspection they do is meant to upsell the heck out of your visit. The big chain auto service places are exactly the same. Case in point: I was required to have my car inspected to drive for ridesharing at a specific, big chain location in C.L... I won't say the name, but it rhymes with "StireFone." They failed my car, said I needed a complete brake job all around - pads and rotors and then some, to the tune of over $1200.00! And they still charged me for the inspection! I took it to Steve at SJM, told him of my experience at (sounds like) "StireFone," and it was determined my rear pads were getting low. Everything else was just fine. SJM does NOT try to sell you anything your vehicle does not need (like the dealer or big chain place will). They replaced the pads at a very, very small fraction of the other place's estimate. I then took the car for its required rideshare inspection at a different, authorized place, passed with flying colors, and I have since driven 11K miles over the past 1 & 1/2 months doing rideshare, still stopping just fine! My vehicle is the tool and lifeline I rely on foremost for the safety of my children, and also my rideshare passengers. I will ONLY have it serviced at SJM from here on... Dealer service departments are for recalls and warranty work. Outside of those instances, it would behoove you, if only for the peace of mind in knowing that you are getting and paying for just what you need, to have your car serviced at SJM AutoWerks.
Hi John, thank you for the kind review. We look forward to taking care of your vehicle for years to come.
