A Few Words from Our Customers
I brought my van in on a Friday Morning. They had it diagnosed and estimated on the same day. I kept my car for the weekend and brought it back early Monday morning. They had everything fixed and even did a courtesy inspection to make sure there wasn't anything else I urgently needed done. They took me to work and even picked me up to get my van each time. Great service, friendly staff, and they didn't give you the run around! I'll be coming back for future services and even oil changes. Thank you Marcus and to your whole team!!
These guys are truly all that they say they are.
I am always skeptical with new service, but these guys are exceptional in a wonderful way. Your car will be in great hands and they stand behind their work. They are not just professional, they are also kind, honest and fun personable folks. Any customer will be truly lucky/blessed to have found Capitol Automotive to service their vehicle.
Great job Capitol Automotive... you earned a new customer.
I'd recently taken my Honda to a dealership to have airbag recall work done, and they offered to do a vehicle inspection at the same time. Their inspection revealed that my brakes needed to be repaired right away, and they pressured me to schedule the work with them at that time. Instead, I decided to try Capitol, and a similar inspection showed the brakes were not in the "dire condition" claimed by the dealership. I appreciate the care and concern shown by the folks at Capitol...without the pressure of the dealership. Great work at a good price!
