Hear From Our Customers

Roxy and Steve Sinex   Longtime British American Auto Care Customers


"We started coming here because it was recommended by the best in Columbia.  We liked it because you could get your car fixed and not have to come back again the next week to get the same thing fixed again.  This had been our experience at other places.  There was one time when we had a problem with a radiator that had been installed.  It was defective and they [British American] replaced it with no problem. What that comes down to is the ethics of the company and the people who run it."
