Leon's Automotive Informative - I Think I Trust Leon's

Review by Momanda88 on 2008-02-27
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- We purchased our 1994 Toyota Camry Wagon with 122K miles for $4K over a year ago and are pleased with the car considering it's high mileage. Some say the price is legit some say otherwise. They met most of our demands for superficial replacements before we drove off the lot.

I wrecked our car shortly after our purchase and we brought it back to Leon's because they specialize in Toyotas and they are all we know. They fixed it for $2K. Who knows if that was legit? Not us. The car looked great and ran fine.

We brought the car in to replace the back window because the rear defrost never worked. They were pleased we returned to them for service. They supposedly gave us a deal. I think $250 was the final bill.

They were late on sending us the title and the plates. We had to nag them for it. I got a ticket for expired temporary license plate but I contested it and blamed the autoshop and wasn't penalized. Then I got a ticket for no front license plate, which I didn't realize they were stuck together. The assistant at Leon's kindly unstuck them and screwed the front plate on when I went in to get my title that they never sent us after 9 months or so. Somehow this won me over. Sadly we had to pay that ticket.

Rats ate our wires and our car wouldn't start but we brought it to a closer car repair shop this time. Now our car smells of gas ever since and I am thinking of bringing it to Leon's again to have it checked out. We trust their service. Our car always works when we leave there. Just not sure about their prices.

Price for window sounds good. How much damage was done in wreck? Wiring? Just depends. If you trust them, an d they know you are being loyal to them, they should be ok.

Sometimes consumers get too caught up in "whats the best price" instead of "whats the best value"--There is a difference. Good Post.

you could try getting quotes from other businesses and taking them to Leons. If Leons is a dealership, it is not uncommon to be charged more than, say, a mom and pop shop. If they are doing good work and offer good customer service, I would say the $$ is worth it, in the long run.
