How long should a simple oil chang take? 30 to 45 mins? How about 3 hous on day 1 to not finish and 3 hours on day 2 to end up charging me $168 for a synthetic oil change and a cabin filter. First they didn't have the oil for my car. It took them forever to get it. The guy that runs the shop called Mazda to find an air filter that they also did not have in stock. I heard the guy say to Mazda that he would drive over and pick up the filter. He finished my 3 hour oil change and gave my keys back telling me he would have it at the shop by mid afternoon. I did and he told me that the filter had not arrived and he guaranteed that he would have it the next morning. I arrived the next morning and he still didn't have it. He called Mazda and asked why it wasn't there? They told him that they thought he was coming to get it. He lied to them and said that he thought they were delivering it. In the end, he told me he would call me when the part arrived. I never got that call. I called my credit card company and disputed the charge. I I have never wanted to cause physical harm to a shop so badly. Also the use of profanity in the shop was insane. Totally unprofessional and incompetent.

The service there was pretty awful. I had a squeaking noise on my front end so I dropped in to see if one of the mechanics could take a look. It's a squeaking noise. All that they had to do was drive it, even in the parking lot, then put it up on the ramps and have a look, right?

The guy at the counter seemed like an idiot, really, an idiot. First of all I couldn't understand him, he spoke English, but he mumbled as if he was too lazy to speak in a normal manor. So this is what I got out of him:
"You??ll have to leave your car here till Friday (this was a Wednesday) because the guy is not here"
Then he said,
"We charge $80.00 for customer concerns"

What?!? I thought, are you nuts or stoned? I took my car to Bob Lee's on 4th Street and 15th Ave and guess what, not only did a get an honest estimate I didn't get charged for the estimate.

Get real Tech Master!

Got a $9 oil change, but the oil they put in was USED OIL! Driving 1/4 of the mileage recommended before next oil change the change oil light came on in truck. This has never happened before! Looked at the oil and was dark nasty oil. I am 95% sure they put used oil in for the oil change... The guy in the front is dishonest tried to tell me all kinds of crap I need repaired and I know where false statements...

Has to be the worst business in Florida! I went there already knowing what was needed to be done to the car from a trustworthy mechanic without the tool to fix. Tech Master said it would be $100. Called and told me my strut was bent so it would be another $700. When I came in to pay him for the work I'd requested he gave me a bill for $125 (pretty far over estimate of such small job). Then told him I wouldn't let them preform the work on my car and he said he could maybe do it for $500 or we could commit insurance fraud and get it all done for free! I'd prefer to find a more honest place for the rest of the work.

This place is the worst!!!! I too had a bad oil change experience! The next day after they "changed" my oil, there was a big puddle of oil in my driveway!!! I went back and they barely mustered an apology and offered NO compensation. I had to borrow a quart of oil from my neighbor to get me back to this farce of an establishment. After bitching, they finally gave me oil in these beat up, old, used quart containers. How cheesey can you get??? This place sucks!!! NEVER GO BACK.

Wow! Don't go within a hundred yards of this s##thole!!! Had an oil change done before leaving on a roadtrip...their mechanic left the oil filter loose...the oil dripped onto the exhaust manifold...and almost caused MAJOR engine damage!!! STAY AWAY!!!

I am shocked and appalled at how badly Tech Master tried to take advantage of me. I am a single woman and a teacher and I believe they sprayed coolant underneath my car to make it look like my water pump was leaking, so I would have to pay to replace it. I had questions so I drove it over to another mechanic for a second opinion, he said that nothing was wrong with my water pump, no coolant was leaking at all and he could not explain why coolant would be leaking from that area with the water pump in tact. Additionally I had to take my car to them three times in order for them to correctly flush my coolant system. I believe they merely drained and filled the coolant reservoir rather than flush the system, however I was charged for a full system flush. After the first time when they claimed to have flushed the system there was still transmission oil in the coolant reservoir (from a previous problem with a faulty radiator that they installed!) , so I took it back to them to flush a second time. They tried to charge me for this second flush and I refused, given that they hadn't properly flushed it the first time. When I got my car home and let it cool off, the same day, I noticed that the coolant was low and that it was also leaking from underneath the reservoir. So, now there appeared to be a leak the same day they flushed my coolant system a second time, even though there was no leak before I brought it to them. When I brought the car back to them two days later, for a third time, to address this problem they claimed that the mechanic had forgotten to screw something underneath the car tightly enough, and oh yeah now all of a sudden my water pump was leaking coolant. That's when I put my hands up and took my car elsewhere for a second opinion. These people are incompetent and criminal. There was nothing wrong with my water pump, and the only way coolant could be dripping from that spot under my car is if it was deliberately put there. DO NOT GO TO TECH MASTER THEY WILL LIE AND TRY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU. WHAT LOW LIFES!

I went to Tech Master the other day and walked in ready to pay 15.00 for an oil change and when i got there the oil change was only 8.88 i was shocked and pleased. Then i found out i had a nail in my tire. I thought i was going to have to buy a new tire like the last time i had a nail in it, but all they did was take the nail out and fix the whole with some rubber and it was fixed like nothing happened and i didnt have to buy a new tire. I WOULD GO BACK TO TECH MASTER ANYDAY MY CAR HAD A PROBLEM I RECOMEND THIS AUTO REPAIR STORE TO EVERYBODY. 5 STAR AUTO REPAIR

I have recently taken my car in for repairs to this shop. They have proved to be snide and incompetent. After charging me $90 for an electrical diagnostic, they returned with a bill of $320 for three relay??s and a blower resistor. When I declined the service and informed them I would be searching for other estimates, they handed the pieces they took out of my car back to me. He also informed me that ??he would not charge for the staple? that held my receipt together. I got into my car; noticed my interior was covered with oil, and drove off short $90 and pieces of the car in my hands

Brought car in for sputtering, came back $3000 later car runs like crap. No power, shifts in different places. Car is useless in this condition. First it needed tune up with gaskets needing replacement. This is when the car had major problems with moving, so then they said the transmission had went, replaced that, still didn't fix the problem, 2 weeks later they said the computer was gone, they replaced that, telling me the car runs great, well it has the same problem, no power, shifting is all over the place. So now I am broke with no car, and no job, on top of it. How bad can things get.
