Livonia >Oval Repair Llc
sophie sorry u r upset, but if you read the estimate, it CLEARLY STATES THE ENGINE NEEDS TO BE TAKEN APART!!! SURELY IF THE TIMING CHAIN BROKE THE VALVES WOULD OFF POSSIBLLY DAMAGED THE ENGINE!! PLEASE POST A PICTURE OF THE BILL SO EVERYONE CAN SEE IT. before you go tell the world i was wrong!
I would like to first off say that I am sceptical of the reviews on Oval Repair on this page. No typos or spelling problems? Doubtful. I would also like to point out that the diagnostic Jeff performed missed the slack in my timing chain. He wanted to replace the motor in the car, with a repair bill in the neighborhood of $4000, when we got another opinion the head and the timing belt repair was a total of $350, if you estimate double that for labour (my rule of thumb for repair is if an estimate for labor exceeds 200% of the cost of the part I need to know why) I would expect a repair cost of $1050. I feel certain that I would have ended up with a new engine that would have solved the problem and paid nearly $4000. He may or may not have done a 2 hour diagnostic on my car, but the diagnostic recipt does not even mention that the chain had enough slack in it to remove without tools. I definately do not recommend this company and plan to make sure everyone I know understands the problems I had here.
A great place to do business with.
Jeff and the guys at Oval do a great job! I have been doing business myself with oval as well as sending my friends/family for 5 or 6 years now. Most recently, my brother-in-law had a waterpump go out on his Durango. I told him to see Jeff at oval and they had the car in and out within a day. Not only did they take care of the problem at hand, they took the time to look the entire vehicle over and make sure everything was safe for his wife and son to be driving everyday. A+ shop! I wish more people did business like this!

Accurate troubleshooting and expert repair!. Problems are diagnosed correctly, with the repairs making the car better than original. Repairs are done promptly, and always finished on time. The owners take a very personal interest in the car and the customer. Their ideas for upgrades have made my car better than when it was new. I've always wanted a place where I could take my cars for repairs without worrying about getting overcharged for unneeded repairs or exorbitant prices. Oval Repair is the place where I can leave my car and know that it will be returned better than new. Five stars is not enough!!

AGAIN THANK YOU AND KEEP LETTING ME KNOW HOW I CAN DO BETTER. OWNER AND OPERATOR JEFF S.
Only One place like this. I have been taking my car here for over four years. Not only do i give my business, but both my sisters take their cars to get repaired there too. I would never trust to take it any where else. One of the workers, i believe his name is Jeff, is very nice, and even starts to know you by name. The job they do, is excellent, I've never had a problem after they fixed it. Convent hours, and they will do their best to get it done as fast as they can. Like i said, I would never and have never taken my car to someone else to fix. These are the only men i trust with my baby!!! Try it out, you wont be disappointed!
Honest, Dependable, Very Reasonable. I've taken my cars here for years after being referred to them by my dad and they always do a great job. Nice, clean place, professional workers who know everything about Fords and most importantly they're very honest as well as very reasonable with their prices. If your car doesn't need work done they'll tell you that. They don't make up things that need to be fixed like a lot of other shops will do. I highly recommend these guys.
Very Good, Kind. This place was great. First I have a large Ford truck I was bringing in for a family member and they saw I was having trouble and the guy it into the bay for me. I told them the last place said it was an electric switch (that they didn't stock) that was making my engine light come on...he agreed, but then found a problem with a wire harness, fixed that--and the engine light was off. Instead of charging me $600 he fixed it with a $9 wire!! Basically I came in and said, "please install this exact new expensive part and don't bother with anything else"-the could have easily cheated me outta money but they didn't. These guys are HONEST!!
watch out dealerships. AIR SUSPENSION GENIUS. DEALERSHIP SAID THAT I NEEDED A NEW AIR SUSPENSION MOTOR .THE PRICE WAS ALMOST $800.00 ,SO I DECIDED TO TAKE IT TO OVAL REPAIR A PLACE I HEARD ABOUT AT A PARTY. THE OWNER THERE SAID HE SPECIALIZED IN THESE KINDS OF REPAIRS SO I LET HIM LOOK AT IT. HE CHARGED ME $210.00 THATS IT . IT ENDED UP BEING A BROKEN WIRE TO THE COMPRESSOR. OVAL REPAIR HAS A NEW CUSTOMER. GREAT JOB!!!!
