We live right by Amigo, so when our Honda started making a funny noise we took it here immediately because it was the most convenient place to go. We really wish we hadn't.

The service guys couldn't tell us a thing without running a diagnostic which ran around $100. We agreed to do it. Following that, they say the pistons on the car were going out, and that we pretty much needed a new engine ($3,500). We were in shock - the car has a lot of miles on it, but it's been pretty good for a long tim e.

Then, the mechanic suggested an alternative procedure for over $100, saying that sometimes it works on coating the pistons and making them run smoothly again. We tried it, but the car stayed in the same rough shape. Disappointed, we started looking for new cars on craigslist and began to think about trashing ours.

As a last minute resort, yesterday we took the car to a friend who works on cars but lives quite far away. We figured it was worth taking another look by someone we trusted, just in case something was missed. And thank god we did!

We found out that none of the things Amigo said were wrong with the car actually were. In fact, the problem could have been easily diagnosed without running a diagnostic scan. It was a simple spark plug wire replacement that, in total with parts and labor, cost ninety bucks!

The car is running great again, but no thanks to Amigo. They either lied to us to rip us off, or they were stupid enough to not spot a simple problem. I don't really know which one of those two things is worse.

Don't take your car there!!!!

I bought a 98 Regal from a car auction, at the time I didn't know it was a bad investment. The brakes went out and I took it to Amigos after reviewing a few reviews I found while googling car repair. I was happy to find that the reviews rang true (i always thought the reviews were secretly done by the people who were affiliated with the place being reviewed. Even though I didn't end up fixing the car, the fact that they were honest about the repairs outweighing the value and them not trying to sell or force me into fixing the car i will recommend this shop for your car"s needs.. the reviews i read also said they are very reasonably priced.
