WOW...I'm really surprised by the negative comments about Alert and Gary (the owner). We've been customers for 19 years and have always had a good experience with Alert and the employees. Alert has always treated us with respect (even friendship) and courtesy. I wouldn't trust our vehicles...4 cars and an RV...with anyone else. In fact, Alert has gone out of their way to 'help' our teenage drivers when their cars needed repairs. I highly recommend Gary and his gang to anyone looking for an honest and reliable mechanic!!!

I accidentally came across these negative 1-star reviews while looking for something else and decided to share our experience. We've been customers for 19 years and have always felt comfortable, confident and taken care of by Gary and his

I was cleaning up my stuff and just found some paper works-complaint forms I tried to prepare when I was still in school. I wanted to take this place to the court and collected the materials but couldn't because I became too busy trying

I've never had such a bad experience anywhere like I've had at this one. My car had a hose leak and the owner tried to tell me I needed all this work done to my car and it would cost $5,000. I was shocked. He tried to bs me and I guess he thought I was really stupid. I told him I would think about it and come back. I took it to another shop and they replaced the hose for about $150 and that took care of it. What a horrible person to have a slogan of "Fair and Honest Mechanic". How can he say that and then do that to people? Also he needs a new girl up front, she is the rudest person I've ever come across. Do not take your car there! Should be call BS auto repair. :( Terrible place

This place sucks!! The owner will try to upsell you on car work you don't need at all. He is full of bs too. His daughter works up front and has such a bad attitude and is rude. She's lazy and doesn't want to get off of her butt to help anyone. I wouldn't ever take my car there again if it was the last auto repair place on earth! I ended up taking my vehicle to another place to get the repairs done.

Run away. We took our Rv to Gary the owner. He had our RV for 9 months for air bag repairs, roof repair and reseal, tank replacement that cost me10.000 dollars, half the work was done, He informed me 2 new tires and rims from my coach were stolen.I ended up paying another shop 1000 dollars to replace and repair the things he didn't. The air leak was a rear air brake canister. This was dangerous and he should have known it but he let us drive out with it anyway. They didn't remove or repair the roof just caulk the vents and charged me 850 dollars for a 45 min job. This guy has Excuses up the ying yang. He said the air bags were custom order bags, After i got it back i call a truck parts warehouse and gave them the number on the bag. They had them in stock. I woun't let his guy touch my bike or my kids tricycle. RUN RUN RUN

This automotive repair place is the worst place I've ever taken a car to. I went in for a simple oil change and was told I needed head gaskets changed as I had an oil leak. I know there wasn't an oil leak to begin with. My husband checks those things. The owner seemed hellbent on selling me heads and gaskets and whatever else he could come up with. I have since taken the car to another automotive shop and was told there wasn't an oil leak at all. The owner of Alert needs to change his motto. Fair and honest mechanic yeah right. DO NOT GO TO ALERT AUTO!!!!! You will be taken advantage of..

I would never recommend this place for auto repair work. They had my car for over two weeks for a simple a/c hose change. They kept telling me the part was delayed. All the owner wants to talk about is his divorce and how he got screwed. The girl that works in the office is extremely rude and obviously doesn't like her job. I wanted to talk to a mechanic but was told I couldn't. The owner then proceeded to try to smooth things over. Does he think no one sees thru this bs??? Fair and honest mechanic my ass!!!! This place sucks!!!!!! Don't go there unless you can be without your car for a long time and be fed BS.

I have been taking my vehicles to Alert Auto since about 1995, starting with when I pulled in with an overheating car. I had a coupon for a free exam. I was very upset because I didn't any money to spend on it, but still needed to know what was wrong and what to expect. They actually hooked it up to the diagnostics machine and gave me a diagnosis (I'd blown a head gasket) and exchanged my drained battery for a new one, even though I hadn't bought it there---but had a reciept from another store for it. Talk about bending over backwards.... Although this was a long time ago, shortly afer they started the business there, I was so suprised there existed such an honest, compassionate & knowledgeable shop!! Ever since then, whatever mechanical work my husband could not or did not want to do, we have had Alert do. The owners, Gary, & Mike and his wife are so friendly and honest. All the mechanics do a great job, and are efficient. If the owners are busy answering the phone, you can talk to the mechanics, (who speak perfect english!) about what they found with your car. I feel extremely comfortable with them, and know that no matter what, they will get the job done right and at reasonable rates! They work on RV's too, and even Camping World sends RV's to them that they cannot handle or fix themselves! The fact that this shop is CONSTANTLY busy tells the real story; Alert Auto has a LOT of happy, returning customers like me.

My family has been taking their vehicles to Alert Auto now for a few years and I am very pleased with their work. They are reasonably priced and honest hard workers. I trust my vehicle with them which is hard to find nowadays.

I have done business with Alert Auto for eight years now and have found them to be extremely honest. Their prices are fair and the hours of service are great. I can leave my vehicle off at 7:00am and pick it up at 6:00PM without issue. In spite of another review I read about fraudulent battery cables I found the exact opposite to be the case.
My ABS light came on and I suspected is was in for a major brake repair. As it turned out it was a $12.00 wheel speed sensor that's a true sign of honesty to me. Keep up the good work.
