As always, Jim and the staff did an excellent job. In this case, I had an emergency tire repair right before a planned... road trip. They were really helpful with getting the work done quickly and got me on the road safely - thanks!read more

I caught a flat while downtown. Took my vehicle here to Rad Air trying to just get a patch on the tire. The mechanic... told me they were not able to patch the tire, that I would need to get a new one ($170) and wait another 1hour 1/2. In addition, he said they couldn't get my lug nuts off w/o breaking them. Said I would have to get new ones at $10 ea. They broke 1 which I had to pay for. I told them to just put the spare on and id get tires on my side of town. They charged me $40 to put my spare on. Went to tire place on my side of town.. not only did they have No issues taking the lug nuts off, but they were also able to put a patch on my flat tire. My experience was bad here at Rad Air!read more

Jim was able to do an emissions test at the same time, and even found a spare battery for my key fob!! As a new mom with a newborn in tow, I was so grateful for the service and speed with which they got everything completed. I will come back here for all car maintenance items!read more

My brakes were acting funny so I took it in, they explained the problem on the same day and said they would have it... ready by the next day which i think is pretty fast turn around (and they did it)! They also gave me a pretty good loaner car for the day which was great in terms of convenience. The price for repairs was on the high side according to me (just over 1k) but the problem is gone and I've driven close to a 1000 miles on it already. Plus there's a 30000 mile warranty now! So definitely would go again since it's quality work and Jim at the desk was really nice.read more

Jim provided great service. He was able to identify and diagnose our problem. He did a great job repairing the problem... on our wheelchair van. More importantly, he provided exceptional customer service and followup. He made sure we knew when the repair work was completed and asked if we had any additional problems that he needed to repair. And in addition to that he gave us a loaner vehicle so that we would have transportation while repairs were being done. So if you're looking for a trustworthy mechanic make sure to give Jim a call. You'll be glad you did. We will definitely be using Rad Air again. Thanks a lot Jim , you did a great job.read more

Had a clicking sound in my engine. Brought my Jeep over to Rad Air where Jim and his team diagnosed the issue and... communicated it to me with a plan for repair within a day. The fix required the replacement of the 4 cam shafts in my engine along with other misc parts. Work was done within 4 days of dropping the car off. Also, Jim handled all of the paperwork with my warranty company so I didn't have to lift finger. It's been a few weeks and the car has been running great. Couldn't recommend Rad Air more for anyone living in the downtown area.read more

I had a good experience at Rad Air, can't say it was great because of one little confusion about the cabin Air filter... in my car ? mechanic wasn't able to install it ( l did it later myself ) . I think it's something they need to learn more about it, but besides that the team is very professional, good quality, always on time, respectful. I definitely recommend this place and am going back ??read more

I've been a customer of Rad Air since 2012 and have had a great experience with them overall. I own 3 Lexus LS models... from 1999 and 2005. Before that a Toyota Avalon and have done at least 15K of business with Rad Air over the years. I work downtown and its very convenient to have a Rad Air right here in the area. I can bring them my car in the morning on my way to work and by the time I'm off my vehicle is fixed and ready to go. I appreciate that. Jim, the manager at my Rad Air has worked closely with me over the years to keep my vehicles running smooth. He and his technicians are always professional and do great worm and that makes a huge difference for me. I'm an avid car lover and my cars are very important to me. I won't just take them anywhere. I rely on the quality service that Rad Air provides, giving me the peace of mind I need when my vehicles need top quality service and attention. Great Job guys. ??read more

I really like Rad Air... The prices are reasonable and Jim is a great guy. Very nice and polite. The only problem I... have is when they do a diagnostic on my vehicle and charge $109.00 I wish they can also mention what other things are wrong with my car. I can't pay $109.00 every time I have a problem with my car. However I know that is their price and policy so I will have to either deal with it or take my business elsewhere. Again I really like Rad Air and will recommend my friends and family to take their car there...read more

Very trustworthy service technicians. Most recently Jim repaired a problem not covered by warranty, but then also... tried to save me money by suggesting that I ask for warranty coverage for another part of the repair that should be covered. He could have done the work himself and I wouldn't have known any better. That trustworthiness is invaluable.Another quality aspect of service is text pictures of damage/replacement. Super useful and informative.read more
