I would avoid this business like the plague. Went in for an oil change, and found out i needed new transmission fluid. OK, changeed the fluid. Oh by the way, my timing belt was worn, I should replace that. What? I don't believe them? Well look here, I took it off so you could see! Look how it's got a crack here. Golly I couldn't put a belt in this condition back on the car, look at how damaged it is, putting this old belt back on would make us liable if something happened to the car. FINE, I thought and let them change it. Went in for $30 worth of work and left with a bill just shy of $200. Bonus round! either while removing my old timing belt, or putting the new one on, they damaged my power steering line. Had never had any problems with the power steering, and the leak was just a few inches from where the timing belt passes. Another mechanic said, "If an amateur needed leverage, he'd place the tip of a large screwdriver right there while working the belt into place."
The manager said there was no way to prove that they'd damaged my power steering line, which os true i guess, and i wouldn't be so angry if they had just asked me before removing my timing belt, instead of doing it on their own and then telling me they couldn't possibly put the old one back on. I'll never use their service agian, nor any business under the same franchise name.

This car wash does a very poor job of cleaning. First, it is a machine that means goodbye to that nice paint finish. Drying at the end of the wash with dirty towels means the air dryer doesn't work. Second, too expensive for a machine wash save money at Star Car Wash at Courtland and Elston. And lastly, the owner doesn't care. a trim piece broke on my car and he refused to replace.

I don't understand how the stay in business.

PROS: Good place to tear down to make condos
CONS: Old place, old equipment and poor way of doing business

After pulling into the garage and choosing the services you want, you leave your car to the already furiously vacuuming service-people and go to the long windowed observation area. The mechanical part of the wash is gentle on the car, and afterward each car is hand-dried with good attention to detail. They also clean the windows inside and out and you are left with a very clean car!

I usually go to the White Glove in the winter time. They always to a great job of cleaning the inside of the car. Carpets are vacumed, dash is dusted and windows are cleaned. They also do an excellent job of hand drying your car. They wipe down all the insides of the doors and trunk area. They're never too busy and all that stuff gets done for only 10 bucks. They only draw back is that they run the cars through a automatic soft cloth wash.

PROS: Great attention to detail
CONS: Soft Cloth Wash

This place is great for you if you have small scratches on your car. I took my car in and they did a wonderful job getting rid of those..they painted over them in a very perfcet manner and my car looked pretty much new after that! They do a great job and take their time to make things look perfect. It is definitely money well spent!

I took my car in for a oil change. I thought it was fast service. I went to the dealer the next time and they told me the oil filter was the wrong size. There was a huge difference in the filters. They said the oil place had to be idiots to put this on. I called and talked to the mgr and he blew me off. would not refund or apoligize.

Not going back there.

PROS:
CONS: Un-trained people
