My wife was having problems with her brakes while I was out of town. She dropped it off at Utah Valley Auto.
She left it for me to pick up when I got home. When I showed up, I don't think they expected me to check their work. They claimed the back pads needed to be replaced, and there was a crack in the master cylinder. I had expected the master cylinder as I noticed some fluid under my wifes car the week before. I could see the pads were the same ones I personally installed 10 months before.
They tried to back out the mess by claiming they had only suggested I replace the pads, and being billed for them was just an error.
I can't say for sure it wasn't an honest mistake, and I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, but I wont be going back.
I wont be going back
PROS: They did ok work
CONS: tried to charge me for work they didnt do
We had our 5 year old terrier eat a box of chocolates. He started to get sick. We weren't sure what to do, but we called the medical pet center and they asked us to bring him right in. They explained chocolate is poison for dogs. They pumped his stomach and kept him for the evening. It was expensive, but worth it.
PROS: Very helpful, and understanding
CONS: We didn't realize how expensive pet care can be
I set up an appointment for the day spa service for my wifes Birthday. She loved it.
When I called to make the arrangments, they were very helpful. I didn't know much about day spas but they filled me in. They also gave me a discount, which was great!
My wife was well taken care of and really enjoyed her afternoon. She did comment that it was harder to find the expected, but not that big of a hassel.
PROS: Amazing staff and great prices
CONS: not the best location
They seemed like standard optometrists.
I waited a few more minutes then I would of liked, but the service was good and the prices were fair.
The woman I spoke with on the phone did give me incorrect direction and I had to call back when I got lost.
PROS: Average service and fair prices
CONS: more wait then I expected for a weekday morning
I switched my primary banking to this branch. The set up took just a few mins. When I left I had a packet of all my info, a temp debt card, and 20 checks to get me by until my real checks arrived in the mail.
There was an error in my billing a few months back and the manager took care of it quickly.
CONS: the lines can be long and there is only one drive up window
Its not a kinkos, but they get the job done. They have a few self serve machines upfront which I've used on occasion. They also have some nicer machines behind the desk used for the larger orders. When other places are packed, or I'm a hurry for a few copies this is where I go.
PROS: Quick, easy, cheap
CONS: Not a very wide selection
Nothing special, but the staff was helpful with my simple needs. There seems to be a lot of contractors around here, and their section was busy.
The parking lot is large, but you must be careful with all the big trucks.
The lines were moderate for a Saturday morning - nothing more then I expected
I was purchasing some basic wood stain and the prices were a few dollars more then I expected - but nothing crazy.
PROS: Well staffed - large selection
CONS: Prices seemed a little high.
I dropped my 03 Mazda off to have the brakes done. The price matched a qoute from another local shop and let me pay with my sears credit card with 90 days same as cash.
They took about 2.5 hours on a Saturday afternoon. They tried to sell me on some wheels while I waited, which was cheesey.
All in all I would go back. I would probably go back, but I'll try to get out of work early so I don't have to wait with everyone else on a weekend.
PROS: Price match with 90 same as cash
CONS: 2.5 hour wait
We recently switched my wife from 24 hour to Curves. She really enjoys it. She was getting sick of the men at 24 gym - she always felt like meat.
Its very clean, and efficient. The machine are geared for the female in mind. They have a lot of work outs specifically built for
There is no where near the wait for machines as there was at 24 hour.
Well worth the money
PROS: Clean, no men, great machines, not very busy
CONS: Not as close to my home as 24
This might be the most crowded gym I've ever seen. Weekday afternoons are insane. A routine that takes me 45 mins on a Sunday morning takes me 1:45 on a weekday evening.
They machines are clean, always working, and the staff if professional. There are a lot of regulars, and a few meat heads trying to hit on the women - my wife no longer goes there for that reason.
They have a spin class that I enjoy, and my wife use to enjoy the kick boxing class.
PROS: Clean, friendly, professional
CONS: crowded, and there are a few regulars we could all do without
