"Service and skills are great but as we talked about earlier today you need something/ someone to light up the shop. Painting ain't going to do it. Consider my suggestion. With Barb behind the desk people will be coming in to just chat with her. And then their cars will follow. She doesn't need bennies or a paycheck at first. It would be fun to let this rocket fly and see what happens.

Joe & G. on 11/1/2013:
"Hi John,
Normally I have nothing but good things to say about your work. You have kept my cars running pretty smoothly for a few years now. However, I do have a concern with my last two visits for my 1999 Ford Expedition. During the first visit you inspected my car and certified it. My concern is that about a week later, I lost safe use of my breaks with no warning. it turned out to be my rear break line leaking. Maybe I am expecting too much, but aren't things like brakes and brake lines part of the inspection?
Do not worry, you are not loosing a customer! Your good work on my cars still makes me a satisfied customer.
I also want to thank you again for coming to pick me up at my home when I was unable to get a ride to your shop. It is things like this that have kept me coming back to your place of business."

"The Caar Shop is the best place to take my car for repairs, maintenance or advice. It is organized, clean and comfortable. The owner gives honest advice and recommendations. I've stopped by the shop several times when my car is making strange noises or a warning light comes on. The owner will put the car on the lift for free and tell me if the car needs work immediately or if it just a minor issue. Not to mentioned putting air in my tires or fixing a flat tire for minimal charge or free. I never feel like I'm being lied to like many other places that I used to bring my car. He stands by his work and the customer service is beyond compare. Thank you for all the advice and great service !!

One thing though, you guys need a update of your waiting area. Get rid of those old chairs and throw down some new carpet. Maybe have a coffee machine available for your customers. Maybe loose a bay and expand some of your main office area. Just some ideas...Dave."

"Caar Shop installled a new timing belt, along with all that should be done with it, such as a water pump, all new hoses, belts, anti-freeze and connections etc.
With slightly over 110,000 miles, a noticable difference in the vehicle's responsiveness is quite obvious. It is much quicker to respond with just a touch of the gas pedal, and runs smoothly and almost seems like a new car again.

It has never run better since I bought it at 62,000 miles.

Worth the money to do the job, if you intend to keep the vehicle. Caar Shop completed it in a timely fashion in less than a day, and at the price quoted."

"I am a repeat customer and I had diagnostics run on my 99 sentra. I thought the rate for a diagnostics was rather steep and feel that some kind of break in prices should be given seeing that I come back with my car problems. I don't feel that I am owed or deserve a break but I'm also not made of money. A price break would be nice, and give me more incentive to come back rather than look for a new mechanic shop.

Just a though"

"Hi John,
Alex is a big help. He troubleshoots and finds problems before they become bigger.

PS - I wish your prices were just a little lower - Alex has no control over this, so I thought I would tell you."

Valeriel on 9/11/2012:
"Once again, John, Alex and their crew came through with flying colors and saved the day. My car was nearly dead on arrival but a tune up, new battery, lube and oil change later, it's back on its wheels ready to hit the road. The diagnostic they provided was accurate while my assumptions of what was wrong weren't. Thanks for their diligence in "looking for the bug".
As for the cost, half of what I thought. What can I say?
You can trust those guys."

Rayb on 9/9/2012:
"As usuall the service was done in the time stated and workmanship was good."

Sandrab on 9/1/2012:
"Everything's fine with my car--the tires stayed on all day!

It was a pleasure also to meet your customer with the iPad--she was a lot of help, too.

Thank you."

"The crew here is professional and earnest. I came in to have abs system on a 2001 Volvo repaired. The ABS sytem module was replaced and the brake pump replaced satisfactorily and I have no doubt the repair was done properly. My only dissatisfaction is that this shop does not have the proper reset tool to turn of my ABS alarm light off, so it stays on even though I know the system was repaired and no doubt needed repair."

Nancyd on 8/29/2012:
"As usual it was very profressional. Alex is always courteous and very attentive to what is needed for the car, I really apprecite the quick service."

Stephens on 8/28/2012:
"Good service and informed me that I was too early for an oil change. Inspires confidence."

Clairel on 8/26/2012:
"I always use you guys, I trust you to do the right thing and so far I feel that is what you do. I have sent many family friends your way and will continue to do so."

"I went to this shop after I had an emission issue with my Durango. Not only did they fix it but they offered spot on advice for the future of my truck. With their new location it's way more convient and I will be taking any future vehicles there for service and maintaince."

Donaldr on 8/10/2012:
"I have been to The Caar Shop twice. Both experiences were professional and pleasant. They fixed the items requested and did an excellent job of it."

Chrisa on 7/16/2012:
"Quick, professional & friendly service, as always!"

Valeriel on 7/13/2012:
"Once again, the team @ the CAAR shop managed to get me in and out in timely manner and give me an accurate diagnostic on my car.
Now I know how I can budget repairs and maintenance for the months to come!
Thank you gentlemen!"

Work done quickly and fairly.

Alex is helpful to deal with."

"Car went in for a couple items, including replacement of steering rack and oil pan gasket. After the repair, we noticed something was not just right, and called the shop. They got the car back in, fixed the concern with no charge, and all ended well. I've been a customer for a number of years and this was one of the few times a car had to go back in... but nice to see the problem handled promptly, and corrected."

Maggiec on 7/6/2012:
"After many years of frustration dealing with local automotive repair shops and dealerships, it is so nice to find a place where the service is excellent, the people are friendly and most all they don't make you feel like an idiot when you don't know much about cars. I have a very busy life and I don't have time to think about car maintenance, inspections, etc. The CAAR Shop sends me reminders and coupons to help me keep my car up-to-date on maintenance and preventative car care. They have gone way above my expectations on customer satisfaction and trust. This is the best car repair shop in the Hudson Valley!!"

Lisak on 6/30/2012:
"Not only did John and co. fix my car, they did so within the limits I set (the car is on its last legs, so not worthy of expensive repairs). And then explained it all in terms I could understand. I don't know any other car mechanics that will work so closely with customers, adapting their solutions to the customer's specific situation. That's why I drive an extra half hour to get my car fixed here, and why I am still driving it two years after I thought it was cooked. Caar shop is a rare, great find."

Nancyd on 6/29/2012:
"I appreciate the promt service and also being thorough with checking the vehicle,s fluids throughout the car and keeping record to keep car in good running order. Thanks"

"I only went for an oil change, they saw some things that should be taken care off, but they didn't try and sell me on a bunch of unnecessary stuff. Would recommend them."

Davidr on 6/14/2012:
"l/o/f , 4 new tires, alignment, new belt - all done the same day without hassle ;
you will continue to get my business and I will "plug" yours !"

Robertg on 4/27/2012:
"Did not replace anything because the parts needed had to be ordered. Nothing else to comment on!"

Johnm on 4/27/2012:
"I experienced a problem with my Chevy Colorado delivery vehicle on Wednesday morning,but after a quick call to Alex at the Caar Shop the parts were obtained and thge problem was resolved by 9A.M on Thursday, keeping me on track with my pick ups and deliverys.I thought the response time was excellent and the price reasonable"

Karlr on 4/17/2012:
"John and his team at the Caar Shop are very meticulous, thorough and trustworthy. Always friendly and don't try to over sell you. They always give me the facts and advice I need to make my own decision as to what I want done. There advice is always very honest and I have never felt that I have been had like at some of the other shops..."
