Very professional. Chris called to let me know he would be a few minutes late and we used his drive time to discuss the problem with the vehicle. Once he arrived he was very interactive and described exactly what he was doing and why.

Martin did an awesome job and quick! I was impressed and learned a few things as well. I have had other companies change my oil. They always stripped the bolt or lost bolts that they shouldn't have removed.

Mike was running late and called me ahead of time to let me know that he will be 1 hr late but he arrived earlier than that. Excellent work done on changing the rotors and brakes. I had a Amazon Local voucher which didn't work as expected. Need more clarity on usage of vouchers if your are offering it.

All about Alternator Repair

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.
