I've never had a bad experience at Car-X! They've always treated me with respect and have explained things thoroughly whenever I have any questions. I've even been escorted to the service area to show me things concerning my tires. I'm returning at the end of this week to buy new tires. If you haven't given Car-X a try, I highly recommend it!
