I took my car into Pickering's because the check engine light was on and had 3 of the sensors showing errors.
I was lucky to have them fix my car problems, but they took care of everything with the extended warranty company about covering the cost - They were terrific!! I also got a ride to work and they picked me up. My car runs great now.

Thanks for all your help.

We are in need of car repair and will be taking our business to a reputable place (Kars in Wheat Ridge). We experienced Pickering's dishonest service about 10+ years ago. We have to take our car in for repair, so I thought I'd check on Pickering's ratings, just out of curiousity, lo these many years later. When you get burned by a company, it's really hard to forget. This company's packaging looks great, but they don't deal with you honestly, at least they didn't with us. Our experience is this: my husband took his car in and asked that a new carburator be installed. What did Pickering's do? They cleaned the old carburator, slapped it back in and charged my husband for labor and the cost of a new carburator. My husband knows about cars and he takes note of things before he leaves his car in the hands of repair shops. He knows what the old carburator on his car looked like and so when he received his car and checked on the carburator and saw they'd cleaned up the old one and slapped it right back in but charged him for a new carburator, he immediately took it up with Pickering's. They lied and said that was a new carburator. They would not admit their deceit. I guess you shouldn't expect them to admit their deceit when they went to the trouble to try to dupe my husband. What got to my husband then is, they purported to be a Christian company, but behaved in this dishonest way. This many years later, he still has not forgotten this experience. We've never gone back, nor have we referred anyone there. I copied someone else's comments in my commentary because as I read it, I thought, they are still up to their old tricks! Even 10+ years later. [They seem like a great business when you look at their website. But dont be fooled! They took advantage of us and charged over 230.00 for an inspection that was supposed to be 60.00 and had the vehicle for 2 days when they said it would take only 2 hours. When we got the vehicle back, we had major leaks and wires were sticking out. When we contacted the owner, he said his technician didnt do anything wrong to our vehicle. SO in other words, we are lying and he doesnt care that his tech screwed up our vehicle. Of course his tech is going to deny doing damage to our vehicle. We asked for the inspection money back. Still waiting for a response. Does not look likely. Will never go back to this auto shop and will tell everyone we know what a horrible place of business this is. Don't trust them.]

Twice I have inconvenienced Pickerings by trying to give them my business. I have gone to them off and on for approximately 10 years but I will not be returning. The last example of how I inconvenienced them is by making an appt. a week in advance for an oil change at 3:30pm. On the day of my oil change, I received a voice message in the morning from Pickerings asking where I was. I called back and advised I had made the appointment for 3:30pm. The tech went on and on about how oil changes were only done in the a.m. because their bays get filled up in the afternoon. Randy never mentioned this when I made the appointment. I told the tech I would call at 3pm and see if they could get me in. When I called at 3pm, the tech informed me that they could not do my oil change even though I made an appt. a week ahead of time and scheduled around it. I don't believe this company in clear on the fact that they are in a service oriented business.

Cons: not flexible

If I had a dollar for every time I got ripped off at an auto repair place, I could.......buy some Jimmy Choos. I called Pickerings, reamed them...said I know you guys are going to probably lie to me just like every other repair shop. But my neighbor swore they were good guys. I took my car in that had an electrical problem. At least that's what I thought. They called me at the end of the day to let me know it was a simple loose connection and only charge the diagnosis fee. I can't believe it. This is too good to be true. Especially in this economy. You just expect to be taken advantage of. They must have done something to my radio antenia too, because I'm getting better reception. \r

Strong recommendation. They really are good people.

The Pickering Auto Service is a long long-established auto repair company. The one time we used them we were very satisfied with the work that was done by them.

Another plus is how community oriented the company is, as it provides a place to drop off school supplies for needy children and raises funds for other worthy community projects.

I took my car in for an alignment. I received a call back from the mechanic, he said my car didn't need an alignment, that my tires were out of round. That was what caused my vehicles poor performance. At first I didn't believe him. I had never heard of an out of round tire before. Anyway I took the tires back to the ""discount"" tire place I bought them from, and got them replaced free. So these guys saved me a ton of money, and I got 4 new tires! He could have said some other line of bs, and kept charging me for additional work that I didn't need, but he didn't. They were honest and had integrity. I recommend them for sure.
