“I read about Gold Auto works on many sites and decided to visit them to see if the positive reviews were correct. And I can safely say that they are very professional in their work and manage long queues very efficiently. My air conditioner kit had some problems, and Lucas quoted that the expense would be somewhere around $1600. But I was amazed to see that they only charged me half that amount, as the compressor seemed fine during the inspection. Hats off to their honesty. And, if you are a member, they will send your car to your doorstep for free.”

“I visited a few more places before coming to Fix Auto. I had an issue with my AC unit, and none of the previous workshops were able to identify the problem. I got my car inspected at Fix Auto, and Keong immediately found out the issue. The compressor was going bad, but not completely broken. He was a very humble person and managed to fix it very quickly. I collected my car after one day.”
