The only time I have been to Valley Automotive Repair (other than today) was to purchase a battery for a GMC Sierra that I no longer own. The purchase and experience was quick and pleasant. Less than a week ago I purchased a vehicle that I failed to bring to a mechanic to have inspected. Big fail on my part. I noticed the gas gauge in my 01 Chevrolet Silverado would drop, and never read an accurate level of gas. Something I found to be very common in this make and model. Driving around town the dreadful orange computer box lit up with "Service 4WD." Didn't want this to be happening, as I bought a 4X4 specifically for my outdoor activities. I had already had in mind that I would take my truck into this shop as I have read and heard wonderful reviews, but not this soon. Upon arriving at Valley Automotive Repair today, I was almost immediately welcomed by Bryan and asked what he could do for me. I explained my three main concerns with the truck, he took some quick notes and I was quite surprised in the small amount of time that passed before we were in my truck, driving it to see what was going on. I expected the worst, but not THE worst. Come to find out I have some major repair bills on what I thought was a steal of a deal for the truck. Bryan really did give me some wonderful advice on how to go about this with the dealership, wrote up an estimate to present them with, all in a very respectful, professional, comforting manner. I knew instantly that this was a shop I would and always will bring my vehicles to be serviced at. Although at this point it looks like the dealership will be covering all costs of the repairs, I had an unforgettable experience here. In all reality I would love to have the repairs done here. I have no doubt in my mind that this is an honest straight forward place. Thanks Bryan, and gal at the counter! (I'm sorry I didn't get your name, but you sold me my battery a few years back, I do remember that!) I'll be back soon to thank you for your kind help. Experiences like these go a long way and will stick a lifetime.
