I've gone here a couple times for stereo related purchases and the installations have all been clean and correctly done the first time.

My complaints are that they are outrageously priced and try to sell you the highest priced item they can without taking regard for your needs and budget. Their installs also take longer than I was originally told they would. I would do business here again if I had no other/better options. I would check here last.

Pros: Installs are done correctly

Cons: Installs take very long time and pricing is outrageous

my husbands 2010 sierra was taken to another shop (by car dealer) to get an alpine audio visual navigation dash mount put in. this shop has had our truck for a total two weeks and it was still messed up. we looked into a shop ourselves and found car concepts. after one day they called and said it was done. we have had it for a week now and it is perfect. the staff was friendly and helpful. the technician even offered his cell number if we had issues (we have had none). kudos to you Zach and to car concepts!

Pros: friendl and knowledgeable

Cons: a little far downtown

A year ago, I went to Car Concepts to get a remote installed into my car so I could warm it and defrost it before having to get in and freeze my tail off. It has been wonderful on these cold winter days to climb into a toasty warm car!!! It also cools in the summer when I start the car and turn on the air conditioning. Shawn, the salesman who sold it to me, took the time to educate me on what would best fit my needs, and he gave me a great price. Installation was quick and I was warm all winter. Being so pleased with my first experience, I went back to inquire about getting a bluetooth and a new radio installed in my car so I could talk on my phone and drive hands-free and be safe and legal. Once again, I found the same great service. And most recently, I've gone back to Car Concepts a third time - for window tinting to keep my car cool in the summer (and, I learned, warmer in the winter). The reduction in glare is amazing! I would never go anywhere else for anything my car needs that Car Concepts can provide!!

Pros: Customer Service, Education, Price, Great Product

Cons: None

Will NEVER go back to this place- 1 year and $4k later all i ended up with from this place is a blown Alpine amp bc the stereo had been connected wrong, making a loud popping sound every time it turned on which ended up blowing the amp, a destroyed 7 series BMW from all the holes they drilled in it every time they'd try (and fail) to install something, and they ended up making ME pay for everything when i finally asked them to just rip their shit out because the system was drawing on my battery, leaving me with no heating/air conditioning, and it was never set up right in the 15 TIMES i took it in (not an over exaggeration either) leaving me with crappy, tinny sound on the few times it even worked at all.

The worst part was just the total lack of caring- never once would anyone call me back, worry about what a shit job they did, and would make it blatant that they just wanted me to go away and take their f uck up elsewhere. I used to love this place, but since the son took over for the father as owner, things have gone to complete hell.

Never will i EVER take any of my vehicles to this place, and have cautioned others as well- this place could care less about doing a good job, they just want their untrained monkeys to slap some stuff in there, crank up your bass till you cant hear your music, accidentally break off knobs/cables because they are half retarded, and then avoid you when you come back in trying to get you to fix their mistakes (oh and they will need your car for at least a week, regardless of how many times they tell you it'll be 'done by today or tomorrow morning at the latest'.

I can't imagine how this place still stays in business, save that there is really nowhere else downtown to compete with them. So take your car/boat/etc there at your own risk (coworker took his boat there for a stereo install- made it on the water for 10 min before the stereo blew because they had hooked it up to the battery wrong, and caused $1k in damage which they of course didn't pay, and a lawsuit is now immanent over the ordeal). Trust me, find somewhere else and save your money, time, and a ton of pain and frustration.

Pros: not a thing

Cons: awful customer service, destroyed my car, completely inept

I was recently at car concepts having a car worked on and I witnessed the manager, Scott, treating one of his employees poorly. Plus, the sales person, Matt, lied to me numerous times and never returned my calls and it took way longer than it was supposed to because he didn't do what he said he was supposed to do then he blamed someone else. I will never go back to this shop

Pros: One good installer.

Cons: Poor customer service.

.

In the end, I got a quality product that was carefully installed. I had a poor first experience with a sales person who was confused and misrepresented what I was buying. Also I felt the initial installation was a little sloppy. When I emailed my grievances to one of the managers, I received an apology and the situation was resolved to my satisfaction. I think their pricing could be more competitive with online and large electronics retailers, but they did stand behind their work and reputation to fix my problem.

Cons: need better customer communication

Being in professional sales for a few years (8 years), I feel I know some about successful sales. I walked in being a very novice about Nav/DVD systems. The sale guy obviously very knowledgeable about their products and the in's and out's, but zero consideration on the customer and their level of understanding. I wanted to push pause on the guy to digest all of the product knowledge he dumped in my lap and rambled off pricing. He spoke about 100 mile's a second and way over my head and I'm sure anyone else who isn't in the industry. Didn't give any options assume which system I needed and didn't really explain why. Didn't take the time to really see what features I really needed and didn't need. It was like, its this or nothing, I'd never sell you anything less, although I'm looking at a wall full of other products and options. No Thank you I'll go else where, were they take the time to talk to me (hello! the customer) explain options and feature and system difference.. Having good product knowledge is great.. matching it to the customers level and speech is a true salesmanship. People don't buy from motormouth product dumping!

Cons: relating to customer, taking time to understand needs, not showing bias of products
