I went to the one on aurora My 94 honda was all good, ran fine usually i always took my car to auto depot on Rainer THEY ROCK. But i was like i needed it, done that day. So i took it to precision. 2 weeks later my car started to over heat, went to auto depot got a new thermostat only 90 bucks. A week later my head gasket blew, I blame it on Precision, reading these all these blogs of their faulty work, they probably screwed my 94 up Auto depot thinks so to.

I had my oil changed and was told by the owner to come back within a month because my brakes needed to be replaced. After a diagnostic test (which cost $23.00), the quote to replace them was over $700.

I said no and instead took my car to affordable brake and tires on 47th. They performed a free diagnostic test and told me my brakes were not that worn down and that they wouldn't even recommend getting them replaced. They did preventative maintenance and the total bill was $90. Save your time and money and avoid Precision.

This review is for the Capital Hill Precision Tune

Was re-building my 63 t-bird. Asked them to look at the breaks. They gave me a report that said "breaks are brand new which is why they are so tight on the peddle." Charged me $35 for this diagnosis. On the way home, ALL breaks gave out. I had to do an emergency pull over on the highway. Towed the car to a different mechanic. No breaks whatsoever. Precision didn't even crack open a wheel. There was no break fluid and all four wheels had cracks on the breaking system. They were all shot. Took pictures of the breaks, saved all the old break parts, and contemplated suing them, but haven't done so yet.

Before this incident, I also had them put a new timing belt in my honda. They forgot to tighten the bolts and now there are all kinds of damage to my water pump and timing belt. I'm shelling out another $800 to a different mechanic to fix all these problems that was caused by Precision's poor work.

$800 is disappointing to pay to fix their mistake, but I'm glad I didn't lose my life with the t-bird!

I don't know what everyone else is talking about, but I love these guys. The owner GJ is super helpful and always goes the extra mile for me and all my clients cars. I have a friend who says the same!

Horrible. Well, my experience was with the Aurora and 84th shop, but from the other reviews of this Capitol Hill location, it doesn't seem that Precision Tune holds very high standards for their shops.
They promise you with a smile...and deliver shoddy, two-bit work. They promised me a certain amount in a certain time, and didn't deliver on either. I was trapped because my car was up on the rack, and I really needed to go. I asked for my car back, and he kept saying, it will be done in a minute..instead of giving me my car!! So I had to pay him, even though he had cheated me left and right. I left furious. I will never go back.

These guys are the epitome of BAD unethical mechanics. Two words: RIP OFF. Precision charged me hundreds and hundreds of dollars to "repair" a rough idling car, then backed up their work with a 1-year guarantee. Just a few weeks later, the problem returned. They refused to honor their promised waranty and handed me another estimate for an additional $700. Neither the owner nor the manager are willing to accomodate customers for their incompetence. Go elsewhere... ANYWHERE else.

PROS: can't think of any... except location
CONS: These guys are out to make money, not happy customers.

i do not like this place because they will do all they can do to try and pull a fast one. they always try and not do everything they have to when you are here for oil changes or brakes repair.their service was not good and their prices are higher than they should be.if you can afford it go elsewhere.

I took my car here once and most likely won't give it another shot. I decided to take them up on a special they had posted for an oil change. When it was all said and done the price was significantly higher than the advertised price.

They also did a diagnostic test on my car and found several issues that 'should be' taken care of. After talking to a friend of mine who used to work at a repair shop in the area he let me know that it's common practice for employees at Precision Tune to have a target dollar amount of service that 'should' be attended to.

I would give it an 'ok' rating because I just wanted an oil change and that's pretty hard to mess up. If they do find issues that 'should' be taken care of take your car to Budd & Co.

Precision Tune is way too expensive. They also try to get you to do things that aren't necessary. Their service takes way too long to do anything. If you drop off your car, you'd better have a plan B for transportation because it may be awhile before you see your car again. I would not recommend Precision Tune to anybody for anything.

I went to get a oil change at Walt's auto place, because I had a coupon. I went into what I thought was Walt's, said I'd like an oil change and put my coupon on the counter. It was only after he had rung me up that he said that the coupon was for Walt's. They are practically in the same building!

PROS:
CONS: confusing
