Wonderful service. Friendly, professional, quick.
I am very pleased with ACAR. Personable and honest!
Thank you so much for getting the paint off of my car. That was so nice of you and you have no idea how much it meant to me! Thanks again!
Thank you for all your kindness. The truck is fine. Thank you for your help it was truly a blessing. I pray that God will bless you back for all your help.
It means a lot to me to have found someone who is honest & cares about what the customer feels. As I told you, I was taken advantage of more than once because of what I didn't know. You took the time to explain the problem without giving me a lot of double talk.
Thank you for helping a home sick heart heavy gal. I'm sorry I haven't been able to send this sooner, but my husband has taken a turn for the worse. Thank you once again.
I just wanted to express my thanks for all your help & advice the other day. You really went above & beyond for me & I really appreciate it! Your kindness is greatly appreciated & I couldn't be happier with you as my mechanic!
I moved here in 1977 and soon connected with you as the guru in Hondaville! Thanks for doing excellent work on my and everyone's cars! Otherwise, why would I drive 70+ miles to have my car lovingly and professionally cared for? Thanks again!
Thanks for the 10 years of service and advice! Your honesty, integrity, and excellent customer service are priceless!
To Al and Rod & the rest of your amazing staff, thanks for all your good work & rides when I needed them! Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!
I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to you and your team for looking at my car & clearing the code. I know it was an easy thing for you but it meant a lot. Best to you & your team!
Just a note to say thank you to you and your wonderful people for helping me keep my old Jeep on the road. Peter and I are so appreciative for all you do. We know we can always count on you to find the problem and fix it. Again, Al, thanks.
Referred to Al's from my extended warranty. Drove an hour over from the coast. Excellent customer service!!! Truly accommodating and customer oriented at the front desk. Al himself was even there. I appreciate an owner on premises, it says so much for the company. The boys behind the wall had my car fixed fast. Best of both worlds. I would recommend them any day.
Thanks for the great service. I am so glad I found you guys last year. Always a pleasure dealing with John. The service is great. The mechanics are knowledgeable. Great customer service. Thanks to all. See you again I am sure!
Al's C.A.R. is great. My car broke down and they got me in for repair immediately. Every step of the process was clearly explained, and the work done was impeccable too. Highly recommend.
...I was stranded in Augusta with a nonfunctional vehicle and a large bag of perishable groceries, in 90-degree heat. After stowing my groceries in his refrigerator, Al figured out a game plan for fitting my car into the repair schedule AND getting me home. Then he and his wife DELIVERED my repaired car the next evening after they closed the shop, as I had no way to get back to Augusta to pick it up. His prices were in line with other garages, but the service/attention was unlike anything I have ever experienced. From now on, Al's is my go-to for auto repair. They will treat you well!!!
Al went the extra mile to help us out. He stayed late and made sure we had a safe vehicle to drive. His employees were very courteous and did such a good job. I highly recommend Al's Certified Auto Repair because they do a great job and they are great people.
The Al's Certified Auto Repair is one of the most largehearted group of people I have ever met. Along our route for the Hemmings Great Race 2018 they kept the doors open to make sure our car was running the way it was made in 1952. We were experiencing a handful of issues all of which were quickly diagnosed, resolved and tested. It's places like this that really remind myself and our team that good people still exist. We come from New York City and Connecticut where you'd be lucky if someone stuck around late or even took the care to look for other issues. I would highly recommend Al's to anyone in need of auto repair.
...Unfortunately while traveling, my Yukon experienced a lack of power. I googled auto repair in Augusta and found ACAR. I knew they couldn't fit me in right away, but was pleased that they worked with me. Within an hour they had it diagnosed and called with an estimate...They kept me informed, squeezed me in, and very professionally took care of me. I met the owner Al, What a great guy!...Al's Certified went above and beyond, and the prices were VERY reasonable...Thanks to your team for taking such good care of a stranger. I can only imagine how good they take of their regular customers!
Al's helped us out in a pinch by keeping us motoring safely and happily. Great customer service, knowledge and professionalism. He stayed late and took the extra steps to make sure everything was right before we left. Can't say enough about how he was able to solve several issues quickly and permanently. Thank you!
Went to Al's a while back. Needed some help. They were great to work with. Very friendly and helpful, explained everything to me. They have a great warranty, which was really nice. The shop is nice, clean, and inviting. Got to talk to Al himself, what a great guy! I was very satisfied with my visit. If I lived closer I would come back every time. Thanks guys!
Wonderful service. Friendly, professional, quick.
