Took my truck in for an auto start they were recommend by a friend. The work seems to be good and I have no issues with the install.\r
Their communication skills need work. Talked to a gal over the phone for about 30 min going over

I bought a groupon for autostart. When I came to install it, they said I have to pay $100 extra for a bypass unit. After it was done, my new seat cover was very dirty on the drivers side (it's genuine sheep skin, so I cannot wash it). Later I found out that the trunk cannot be opened when the car is auto started. They said I have to pay extra $66 to be able to open the trunk. So many additional costs they don't tell you about. I would never go back and would not recommend my friends to use their services.

I had my truck tinted and a remote start put in. I had a lil doubt after reading reviews but checked out their website and it said new ownership so I gave them a try and I'm so happy I did!! The tint was perfect and my remote start works great...I'm going to go back for a sound system. Thanks!!

Pros: Received Great Service at Great Prices

Cons: No Coutesy Van

I went into Car Toyz December 17th and booked an apointment for December 23, 2008 For a full Window tint for my car and an audio system also. I was very up front with the owner John Lujon. ( big time mistake) I told him I am female and i don't know anything about electronics so I asked him to give me everything I need to get my audio system banging. Well he was very professional about taking my money lol. ($1,400)
I even asked a female associate about warrantys and she said there was a warranty on everything except remote starters. the invoice stated so also. when the work was done I picked my car up after hours, I loved the tint . ( give credit where credit is due) However when I cranked my car there was not even the slightest bump or boom! but me not knowing much about electronics I thought that's what one 12" sub sounds like. I didn't know for three weeks that I was riding around listening to my car factory system until a guy friend told me that the speaker wasn't even on. So I called car toyz they said to bring it in I did the owner came out and said I blew the speaker and I asked him how could I ruin it when there was never a bump or boom then he said well whoever drove your car blew the speaker . I told him I'm single and the sole driver of that car. Then the unbelievable happended this man the owner (John Lujon ) stooped Down kind of in my face and said "WELL I AIN'T GIVING YOU NUTHIN FREE" clearly imitating me because I'm a young african american woman from the south. I told him politely I didn't want anything free, and that all I wanted was him to stand behind his product like a good business man would. I told him I would pursue legal action. I didn't because I work 6 days a week and since everything else was fine except the speaker I decided it wasn't worth it. So I went over to pyramid audio they installed Two 12" speakers cheaper, faster and great customer service. Now John and his staff at car toyz can hear me before they see me. LMAO

Pros: Great Tint service

Cons: refuses to stand behind their products and services.

My car and my husband's truck had window tint installed here. We really like their work and we have recommended all of our friends. Several months after my windows were tinted, someone smashed my window and broke into my car. I didn't want to turn it into my insurance company so I had to pay for the new window and the re tint. When I told Car Toys what happened they only charged me $20 to re-tint it. I was happy!

I have had several things installed at Car Toyz and the customer service is really good. My window tint was done back in March and my auto start in Dec. 06. I also had HID's put in this month. I went in last month for a small bubble that I noticed in my back window, and they fixed it that week. I thought that I was going to have to pay for it, but I guess they have a lifetime warranty on their tint. Cool beans! I would definitely reamed those guys.

I was referred to Car Toyz back in Feb. 08 for my window tint and remote start. But I really didn't want to drive all the way to Anchorage. I finally made the appointment and had my Chrysler 300 tinted and the remote start put in last week. I am very happy with the work and the customer service was great. I had a friend pick me up and take me to the Bear Tooth to pass time. They knew that I was from the Valley, so they said that they would pull my vehicle in first. They did and I was back home before rush hour traffic. Very nice people.

I took my 04 Focus to Car Toyz last year. About three weeks after it was tinted I found a small bubble on the back window. When I call Car Toyz about it, they scheduled me in the next day and re-tinted the entire window. I thought they were just going to pop the bubble or something. If I new they had to re-due the entire window I would have dealt with it. It was hardly noticeable. Anyway, they definitely honor their warranty guarantee. They have really great customer service. I also like their video prices. I will be going back.

I had a very good ecperience with these guys. I had my 2005 Audi A4 tinted at Car Toyz in March and my 2004 Explorer tinted this month. They were pretty fast. Both my cars look great. I had to wait for the Tundra and they put a movie in their TV display for me to pass time. I thought that was pretty cool. I will be going back for an auto start in October.

Pros: They offer a lot of different accessories

Cons: On the other side of town

*Here is a copy of the letter I drafted to Car Toyz after my horrible experience with them (I was considering legal action at the time but due to school and work requirements I was unable to pursue it)*

To Whom It May Concern:

I am the owner of the 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX that recently received window tint installation at Car Toyz on August 8, 2007 (Invoice No. 1775). After service was performed and the adequate time was given for the tint to dry, I was left unsatisfied with the job done for multiple reasons, including the following:

?Large and inconsistent gaps near window edges
?Bubbles in the tint on the majority of the windows
?Dirt in the tint
?Inadequate cutting of tint on the sunroof
?Extremely premature peeling on front passenger side window
?Marking on farthest rear driver?s side window
?Excessive and unprofessional marking on the rear window

After receiving a professional second opinion, as well as multiple reasonable people?s opinions, unanimously declaring the job unprofessional and unacceptable, I felt justified in a refund. When I pointed out the flaws in the walk-through that was scheduled and carried out on August 14, 2007 I was offered excuses and technical explanations that did little to explain as to why the flaw occurred leading me to believe incompetence. My two choices were to allow it to be redone or to do nothing and take a loss of $259.00 plus the cost it will take to remove the unacceptable tint.

I do not find it unreasonable to refuse an offer of having it redone by the same person, under the same unacceptable standards that allowed it to be done so unprofessionally in the first place. Some of the actions taken to my car (excessive marking) led to my feeling that an ethical violation had occurred in this professional relationship and that the opportunity for ?cure? was thus extinguished.

Cons: Offered no recourse for the bad job done other than to have the bad job re-done...
