They did a lot. They do professional and high quality work. It's a fair price. They do everything well. Every time I had the car there they do well.

Description of Work
They've done a couple of things. They replaced the alternator, some belts, checked the battery and stuff like that.

This was my first visit to Bridgeville Automotive -- previous inspections on my four-year-old car having been provided by the Nissan dealership at which it was purchased. Was advised that the car would not pass because of leaking rear shocks and that front brakes would barely pass and should be replaced very soon. Also they needed to "special order" new wiper blades because they were a "weird size" and a couple of other small items, for a total cost of about $950. Bridgeville replaced a small light bulb and cleaned the battery terminals (no charge) and billed me $71 for the inspection and emissions test. I declined the other recommended work, popped over to Auto Zone for wiper blades ($40) and took the car back to the dealership for a second opinion. Nissan pointed up the brake issue but found no other problems -- total cost $370. That's a pretty big discrepancy. Don't think I'll be going back to Bridgeville Automotive anytime soon.

After dropping the car off, I received a call later that afternoon explaining that in order for the car to pass inspection multiple issues would need to be taken care of, from the suspension to the exhaust. The estimated cost of the work was $1,200. I politely said this is crazy for the scope of work, and I would pick the car up and not have the work done. I some knowledge of mechanical work on cars, so I decided to take a look for myself. I crawled under the vehicle, and there was absolutely no issues with the suspension, or exhaust. Still needing an inspection, I took the car to two other certified PA inspection garages, where both confirmed that there was absolutely nothing wrong with the suspension, or the exhaust, and the car passed inspection with no problem. This place is a total rip off and con artists - even if the issues were true, the quote was double what the scope of work would normally be elsewhere. Beware.

Great service and great price - Bridgeville Automotive confirmed repairs that had been identified by the local Nissan dealer, but their price was significantly less than what Nissan wanted and the responsiveness and availability was much better. Ellen was great in keeping me informed of their findings and progress, and explained all of the charges in detail. I will definitely use them for future service needs.

The exhaust system on my 2005 Hyundai Accent had become increasingly noisy for about a two week period. I got under it with my iPhone and video taped from front to rear. Transferred recording to PC and saw that the flexible portion of the center pipe was rotted. I went online and found out what that part would cost me. Then I decided to join Angie's List to find a recommended shop to fix it. There wasn't much for my area for muffler repair, so I did a search for auto repair in general. That's when I discovered Bridgeville Automotive Inc. They had dozens of raving reviews and so I gave them a call. Jim, the owner, answered and said that they had a cancellation that day and that I could bring it over right away. I never mentioned that I had inspected the system or that I thought I knew the problem and the cost of the part. I just said that there was a new noise under the car. Sure enough, after he had examined the car, he said the flex pipe was leaking and his estimate for replacement was spot on. I then agreed to let him fix it and he provided me a ride back home. When Jim called me to tell me that the car was finished, the price was the same as his quote. He then asked me if I needed a ride back to his shop. When I got there he brought out the old part and showed me the damage and explained the the remainder of the exhaust was in good condition. He also saw a check engine light on the dash and said that it was a Tranny Temp Sensor and not related to the exhaust system. The car ran like new on the trip home, quite as a mouse. I found that every step of the process was conducted professionally and fairly. I will definitely return for future service and I have already recommended this shop to family and friends. I am also glad that I joined Angie's List.

Description of Work
Replaced exhaust flex pipe and gaskets. Made sure the check engine light displayed on my dash wasn't related to flex pipe damage.
