Mark and Mike and the other guys at Big O have been taking care of my car
with a consistently high level of quality at affordable prices since 2009, and
I continue to be extremely grateful for that.

Very nice, professional people.Kept me up to date on all they were doing with my car, price of repairs and how long it would take. I will continue having my car serviced here!

Was sorry to hear that Jeff had retired. He always gave me great service. Mike handled my tire replacement and had me out much faster then I expected.

I took my truck to them to check my tire as the silk was showing. I ended up buying foot new tires, getting an oil change/lube and filter replacement as well as checking out my breaks which were squeaking. Need to take it back as breaks are still a problem.

Everything was good, but they lost my paper work between the shop and the front desk. I had my original paper work with me and I wanted to put them back in the car. The service writer said will just put them in your work order and you'll get them back when the work is done, but that didn't happen. They were lost.

Last week I needed them to fix my flat. They took care of it and stored my spare back properly. Only wish they would've explained that they didn't have the machine to reprogram my tire information screen on my car. It displayed that there was still an issue with the tire. I returned immediately to confirm that it WAS safe to drive on it. you know peace of mind.

In any business there will sometimes be problems. When I got my initial diagnostics and estimate, I was not pleased. I went back and spoke with Hunter and Marc and they not only apologized, but also took full responsibility even though neither of them were the source of the dissatisfaction. When I brought my car back, they were polite and extremely professional. The services performed were done in a timely manner, at a fair price and to a very high standard. I will definitely be coming back and referring all of my friends to them. The significant point is not only that I am very happy with the services performed, but that they are a shop that stands behind their work and takes responsibility in a professional manner for the difficult conversations that happen in every business.

I couldn't afford to pay for new tie rod replacement and brake rotors. I bought new wheels and alignment, did the work with a friend, and then returned to have the car aligned on the 6 month 2nd alignment. Very happy that Big O helped me to do this to get my car ready to sell.

I have been bringing my car to Big O Tires for close to seven years now for everything which the car requires in regard to maintenance and repairs, and not merely for tires and oil changes. I do indeed find their service consistently outstanding and their prices consistently reasonable. But beyond that, on my most recent visit there, it was initially thought that certain parts would need to be replaced and that the total with the labor would come to around a hundred dollars. But when I went to pick up my car, I was told that that the replacement wasn't actually necessary after all; that they just made some simple adjustments and that there was no charge. So it's certainly wonderful when people who are that honest are working on our cars, but I think that it would be even better if they campaigned for office and became our political leaders.

I have used their automotive services for many years and I have NEVER, EVER had a problem, or had to bring my car back to fix the same problem over again. I just LOVE these guys, they make me laugh and I ALWAYS FEEL SAFE while driving my car. I TRUST their work with the upmost respect. THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!

I was at Big O a few days ago and they were able to get me in for my service and I was so happy

I couldn't afford to have the work recommended done at Big O. Hunter and Gary kindly gave me their inspection document so I can purchase the parts and do it myself. I paid for a six month alignment on two new tires and they will realign after I have completed the work. Great guys, great service, thanks!

Changed the oil and rotated the tires and my vehicle is good to go!

I have been going to these guys for a while. Not just for tires. They do good work, you just have to be clear what you need done. They are a bit to focused on getting the work done fast so they won't find problem for you without being told to specifically look for it.

They were so helpful and got me right in! Their staff is the best!

I came to Big O to get a great deal, but I come back over and over because the team at the store is really good at taking care of me and my cars. "Cheerful", "informative", "good at follow-up", and "easy to work with" are the descriptions that I think of when I remember Jeff's team. They just make the whole tire experience easy.

Jeff and Mark are great. I have been coming to Big O Tires for many years and its because of the customer service.
