This is the only place my Dad will take his car. So I've got an appointment for a wheel bearing replacement in the morning. Great prices, and if Dad trust them, then so do I!!
Best service for the price, scared of the service charges by dealer's service center?? Then this is where you should be..
Well I went to them for service on my van; they were the upmost professional. I wanted work done and was willing to pay the $1000 plus to do so; unfortunately they wouldn't allow me, to have work done that apparently didn't need it and or needed right away. The communications were awesome, especially when sometimes I can be considered to be over worried and having lots of questions. At the end of the day, only what was necessary was done and cost me a 3rd of what I was willing to pay. I am great full and will continue to do business here as long as the service remains patient and honest as they were with me this week! Thumbs up guys!
I began taking my Solstice there about 4 years ago for a heater issue (the resister melted and they had to rewire)...less than $100 later, I was on the road. Now everyone in my family takes their car there for repairs, no matter the extent. Every review I've read talks about their honesty, and I can truly say I agree. They do not try to rip you off, and Steve explains, in detail, the repairs to be performed before doing so. From sports cars to SUVs, A&E is the place to go for trustworthy and reliable service.
From dropping the car off through picking it up, the service is great! I have had work done on all of my vehicles and referred others there as well. Steve is great and does a fantastic job explaining the problems and options to fix it. I've compared prices and they are very competitive. The most important piece is their honesty! While I was convinced I had an issue with my mini-van they assured me it was fine. They could've easily found a problem and charged me for it but they didn't, instead Steve sent me on my way, without charging me for the diagnosis, he knows I'll be back!
I first brought my car to them about a year ago because i heard good things about them and saw they had great reviews. Let me tell you- these guys are the best! I drive a 25 year old Volvo and it's hard to find someone that is reliable and willing to work on it. They've always been honest and up front about all repairs and are very reasonably priced; cheaper than anywhere else and QUALITY work. Now i only take my car to them when it needs servicing. Even when they're busy, they usually find time even to just look at your car so at least you know what to expect before they get to work. Don't trust your cars with anybody else, take them to AE!
My family have been taking our vehicles to AE for over 35 years. Always the best service and guys I can trust. Won't go anywhere else.
I made my appointment online and brought my car in on that date. The work was completed before lunch time. Thanks, guys! You have been taking care of my cars for a long time now. You are honest and professional. This should be the only place to bring your car in for repairs in the Metro Detroit area.
Great team of people. Front desk Service guys are top notch. One of them even came out and jumped my car to get me there when my alternator was having issues.
I love you guys. You have fixed my vehicles and have done major work on my vehicles on several occasions. I always recommend you to anyone looking for a GREAT mechanic. In fact my brother will be calling you soon. The piece of mind I have of just knowing I have you guys around is priceless. Knowledgeable and honest mechanics are hard to come by. Thanks again guys.
- 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.
