First off, I want to say, The owner John is the nicest mechanic I have ever had to deal with , ever.... I have a chrysler sebring lxi 2001 with the nightmare 2.7 motor. It was pouring out anti freeze, but other than that the car ran great. No misses, bogging or knocking.. He was up front and quoted me $1100.oo Which was on par with what all the othe shops were saying. The job was a night mare, and took 16 hours to complete, yet he only charged me for eight. When I got the car back I noticed a ticking sound, that was never there before. He said put some miles on it. which i did. The ticking turned into a loud knock, and grinding noise. I was livid.
I spent 3 grand on a car a year before, just spent another thousand to fix it and it was worse off than when it went in. John said bring it back in and we will look at it for you. And he did. It took another 5 days(night mare motor). He dropped the oil pan( including cutting off rotting exauhst system parts and replacing with new) cleaned out all the sludge, cleaned the oil sump, repainted, and replaced all the gaskets, new oil and filter etc.
I picked the car up, drove it a mile and a half home and it was running worse than it was before. I decided I was going to run it till it dies, count my losses, and have a lesson learned. But john did say to put some miles on it. After 2 more miles, al the sputtering stopped. All the grinding, and knocking stopped. The car runs even better than when I brought it in. John, and his men did another 300 dollars worth of work on my car without pay, just to make me happy. The people at shelby auto care went above and beyond, what they should have, just to make me happy.
The prices are fair, they treat the customers well.(he gave me a ride home and offered to pick me up,) and I would recommend them to anyone. They are honest, and do great work.. If you need quality auto care this is the place to go. He did an extra 300 dollars worth of work, and charged me nothing. I will be a loyal life time customer. In short ... This is the place you want to bring your car when you have problems.........
