They'll do ONE repair but charge 2 time codes. i.e. If you replace the alternator and the belt you don't charge for each as if seperate. Its simply dishonest. I will say they did refund Hundreds of dollars on one screw up, because I caught it. I gave 1 star only because 0 wasn't an option.

In memory of the old man, I continued his legacy and kept taking the vue to Academy Car Care. Been a repeat customer for about 8 years or so. In that time I've had good service but lately it really has taken a turn for the worst. I first noticed something was amiss by John Massey (The owners son). His attitude really makes you wonder if he cares about his dad's business at all. Once this behavior began I should have found another shop probably 3-4 years ago. If he treats repeat customers in such a callus way, It makes me wonder how he treats his staff. A few visits previous I noticed odd things like various bolts not being tightened down properly (requiring me to take the car back in). Once again, trying to do as my dad would have done, I had the car taken in for a new clutch. Everything seemed fine for the first 10,000 miles. Now the clutch feels about as bad as it was at 70,000 with the stock clutch. Took it in and was told clutch was normal. Very frustrating the disconnect between management and the mechanics. I have a feeling that there is internal conflict with the staff here and they will take it out on your car. My trust us broken, and I will find another shop to do business with. Shame.

Before they brought my car out they provided me with a list of issues that my car needed fixed, the biggest and most expensive being a new time belt. I was told the timing belt was cracking (I was priced an amount higher than the value of my car). I waited to get any repairs so I could get a second opinion and over night my car started leaking oil. I took it in to another shop that fixed the oil leak and they told me that the cover over the time belt did not look like it had been touched in a while and when they took it off to look, there was no cracking on the belt. Not only did Aspen auto lie to me, they extremely over priced me on repairs and created more issues with my car. I will never go here again.
