I've used Parents for at least the last 8 years and I have no complaints. They do not nickel and dime you, and they are always fair if something is not quite right. I truly feel like I get what I pay for with them, and appreciate how accommodating and nice the staff is.

I've always thought of quality customer service as not only working to get it right the first time but also the commitment to ensuring that if you do miss something you'll make it right, especially when it comes to complex repairs like cars. I took my car in for repairs with the folks at Parents, got it back, and was hearing the same issue that had originally prompted me to get the car checked. It was a tricky issue, one that you wouldn't hear unless the circumstances were just so, but that's not the point of this story. When I went back in they fixed the piece they missed ... for free. That, in my mind, is above and beyond customer service and they've absolutely won a new repeat customer in me. I'd highly recommend these folks.

Came here for the first time about 8 years ago when I first moved to town. On that visit, I overheard the guys behind the desk argue with a customer in an attempt not to do talking a customer out of an unnecessary (sounded like it would' have been the wrong) repair. Unless I do it myself, I've never gone anywhere else since then - and even then I occasionally end up back here to have them check my work and fix my mistakes.

I've been to numerous other auto shops and all have had their own issues: over charging, long waits, bad service. I had a slow leak in one of my tires, and decided to try Parents because of all the good reviews here and on Yelp. I was not disappointed. I called ahead of time, asked for help, got slotted in for an appointment, and when I arrived early, my car was taken in, the leak repaired and all the other tires checked. Good recommendation to replace tires soon, no pushy salesman just some expert advice. Oh, and the repair was $25. I'm going back this summer to get new tires. This place is great and you should reward it with your business. Thank you!

My check engine light on my 2003 Buick LeSabre came on and the engine started shaking. I had it towed to Parents Autocare. They started with a computer diagnostic which gave them a code for a misfire. After that, they called and wanted to do a compression test. They told me that one of the cylinders had no compression so they wanted to take the valve cover off to investigate. After taking the cover off, they found that the cause of the issue was a broken valve spring. To get to this point was $486.85. Instead of just replacing the spring, they wanted to take the heads off, check all of the valves and spring compressions. Andrew quoted me a MINIMUM additional price of $3,000 to fix the engine. He said they may encounter more issues once they pull the heads off. I told him to stop and I took the car to my mechanic in southern Minnesota. He replaced the spring for $99 and the car is running just like new.

I've brought my car here a few times. Twice, to fix more horn, which has been broken for a few years. They did fix it, but it stopped working after just a week each time, and they wanted to charge me just as much to fix it a third time for probably the same result. I also asked them to replace the broken bracket holding my muffler in place. They installed a temporary fix which they told me would last a year. It's been barely three months and it already broke in half. When I had issues with my gear shift (which another shop fixed in about five minutes), they told me they couldn't even find the problem. The guys I talk to here are always really nice, but the work they do is so subpar its incredible. This has been the worst experience I've ever had with an auto shop. I would highly recommend literally anywhere other than Parents.

Parents always does a great job every time they work on my car. It's an older car that truthfully should have been long retired - 235k+ miles, but with their help it just keeps going. The customer service is great - they help me make informed decisions to prioritize repairs and figure out which ones probably aren't worth putting the $$ into at this stage. I really appreciate their honesty and quality work.
