Rob answers a Glenwood Auto Service Negative Google review

Rob answers a Glenwood Auto Service Negative Google review

Hi Ryan! Thank you so much for your feedback. I am the one you spoke with, Ryan. What I always want to communicate to people who call us asking about prices for repair work is that you can always call around and find a "cheaper" price. You can call around until someone quotes you a number that you can live with. The reality is that the difference between a phone quote and the actual cost of the repair work is 30%, that's an industry average. That should tell you everything you need to know about the accuracy of phone quotes. Also, doing estimates is time consuming. We want to look after the clients that we have in our shop that day. Spending time doing phone quotes takes away from the time we should be spending on our current clients vehicles. They are our priority each and every day. The truth is that every shop has a different commitment to the quality of parts they use and the expertise of their technicians. This is why almost all of our repairs come with a 3 Year ... read more

Hyundai & Kia Computer Diagnostics - Check Engine Light Diagnostics

 Glenwood Auto Service has the ability to perform factory computer & electrical diagnostics on your Hyundai and Kia vehicle. You do not have to take your vehicle to the dealership. We pay a subscription to both Hyundai and Kia the same way the dealerships do. We have the Hyundai/Kia factory GDS Scan Tool (Global Diagnostic System) in our shop. If you need a check engine light or drive-ability problem diagnosed, Glenwood can handle it as good or better and with faster turn around time than your Hyundai & Kia dealership. You will most likely be able to book an appointment with us 2-4 days in advance as opposed to having to book 1-2 months in advance at the dealership (some dealerships are booking appointments that far in advance unfortunately). We offer a 3 Year / 60 000 km warranty on almost all of our repair work, and this warranty can be honored anywhere in Canada and the USA. Our diagnostics are accurate and efficient. Our diagnostic technicians travel to take the best t ... read more
