This would have been the warranty replacement of the right front brake caliper, rotor & pads to resolve the growl upon coming to a stop. Also the right front tire bead was cleaned...

Great customer care! 2/18/2016

Doug and the team at Apple Valley Car Clinic provide excellent customer service! With a busy family of four, they are very responsive to our timing needs and service all of our 4 autos. They focus on the most critical items that could cause safety issues first. They will then make other recommendations to get keep your car running optimally, but will break the work down into manageable phases to work with our budget. Highly recommend and will not take our autos anywhere else. more

Intake Manifold Bolts 2/15/2016

This would have been the warranty replacement of the right front brake caliper, rotor & pads to resolve the growl upon coming to a stop. Also the right front tire bead was cleaned up to resolve a slow leak. Both of theses were handled in AVCC's normal professional well done manner. Upon getting the van home, I was cleaning off the acid build up on the battery post, when I noticed the Intake Manifold & throttle linkage bracket bolts were not screwed in & torqued. Not even 1/2 the threads were screwed in & 1 of 2 throttle linkage bolts was found laying atop the manifold. the van had been in a couple weeks back to replace a leaking fuel rail located under the Intake. At that time, the mechanic who performed the work was fired shortly after my work was done, as a result of dissatisfaction with other work he had performed. I returned with van & the boys immediately fixed the issue & apologized while I waited only 20 minutes. In my opinion, one bad apple should not ruin AVCC's reputation & will not keep me away, but this mechanic's work, who they were dissatisfied with, should have been checked before turning the vehicle back over to me. I think the lesson has been learned. The guys in the shop now, are a good bunch! In addition AVCC repaired a tire bead leak on my Dakota at No Charge. more

Neighbors steered me to you 1/31/2016

I posted the following question on "Nextdoor", a neighborhood group: "Has anyone had automotive work done at Apple Valley Car Clinic? Every response I got was supportive of your business..."We have used them for many years. They are WONDERFUL! Always found them to be honest and helpful!" (Peggy) "Hi, I went to there a couple years ago to fix an AC issue with my Audi. They were really professional and fixed the issue in for me in 1 day! I also got a free car wash card. I had a good experience with them." (Monica) "yes I have used Apple Valley Car Clinic for about 5 years or more and like it there. they are like family to me." (Gladdie) " I use Apple Valley Car Clinic every time. Doug takes care of our vehicles as though they are his vehicles. I had a loud noise like my fan was hitting something. Doug came out and found that a plastic part shook loose. He went inside and came out with the part to fasten it. I asked him how much. He said don't worry about it. I know Doug and trust him and his son. They do not push you to repair anything that does not need it. They will present it as: Here is what you should do now, here is what you can do later & here is what you can put off to sometime down the road. No pressure sales like the other places do. Very professional! "(Robert) I'm so glad that I was able to find AVCC!! I'll be back!! more
