Was a new driver, and didn’t know much about my car. I take my car to Luigi who is always patient with me, and quick to answer all my questions. Fast service, friendly people. I would encourage everyone to have the service!

I use AAA Gaithersburg title services in May 2021. I called ahead to ask about what doccument do I need to bring. Some document needed to be notarized, which they did on the spot free of charge to AAA members. They charge the same rate fees as MVA, plus extra $40 fees for the titling +15 MVA computer usage fee. Tommy and Tony helped me get the title transfered in under 45 mins. The best thing was I left with a real MD metal license plates, with 30 days sticker to get the car inspect. They have inspection in house too, but the scheduling conflicts made me take the care to a garage near my house. Two days later I went back to AAA to get the 2 year sticker and that's it. Additional fee for this as you would have to pay MVA +$20. One week after that I got MD title in the mail. Worth the time and the convenient of not having to go to MVA during Covid outbreak. Highly recommend. Call to consult about your case so you know what document to bring.

Excellent customer service and really good pricing for oil/filter change, tire rotation, etc. Not everybody knows that these AAA Centers have these services. Tire and battery sales, too.

We really appreciate being a AAA member but it's unacceptable that this shop represents them so poorly. Unfortunately, this shop is a joke and we will not be bringing any of our vehicles there for service. For starters, the transmission pan needed replacement and all the fluid gushed out because of a near accident in poor driving conditions. I spoke to them and notified them what was wrong and even had roadside assistance diagnose the issue but, instead we wait only to receive a call telling us exactly what I had explained earlier. Granted, the front desk staff may have felt like the car needed to come out of the shop repaired ASAP but, it WASN'T completely repaired. I understand it may have been "safe" to drive, but, the mechanic, whoever it was, managed to miss a huge misalignment with our front left wheel which was the one that had the impact as well as the back. You don't rush to get a vehicle out just because the shop is about to close and you want to get out, that's someone's life on the line driving that car if isn't fully repaired and in this case it's my wife's which I don't play games with. Get the punch line though... we already paid a lumpy sum for the repair assuming everything was completely repaired and diagnosed with no issues. Nope, the "test drive" is a short little loop in an extremely small parking lot. After seeing that we get the key and my wife begins driving and notices squealing as she turns the wheel because of alignment they completely missed. They tell us the car might be a little noisy because of the new tires however, obnoxious squeeling wasn't accounted for when they called us saying the car was supposedly ready. Now we have to call them because when they changed the tires, we should have one back in our trunk but, they forgot for the second time in a row this has happened when changing out tires. Which I hope they didn't toss because the tire is still brand new. The good news is that our car is finally out of their so it won't be

It was OK... just OK.... The prices are comparable and everyone was very professional.... but they told me to come in to pickup my car and then still had to wait over 30 minutes and no other customer was waiting in front of me. A few months later went to rotate my tires and realized they had lost or not replaced my security lug socket in my glove box. It was a PAIN getting those things off without the key.

My car is a 2010 SUV with well over 130K miles. Every time I’ve had to go in for maintenance or repairs, they’ve treated me fairly and they all are always so kind. One of the guys that works there (sorry forgot his name) even recognized my voice over the phone. They are always so patient when I have Question after question and ask for explanations just so I’m clear on what’s happening.

It is beyond comprehension just how bad the customer service is at this location. They used to be managed by a different person, who was wonderful, but since then, it's enough to make a sane person crazy. They don't follow up, they are rude, they never answer the phone. Why do I keep going? They do a great job. If you can mentally prepare yourself for the agony of getting the job done, it's worth it.

Knowledgeable technical staff. Yami is a pro. She explains what needs to be done and what needs to be watched. The mechanics inspection found several bulbs out and saved me from a lot of tickets. Giovanni will find you a good deal on tires. Got a full set for the best price anywhere. Everyone (including Jonathan and Christopher) are very helpful and professional on the phone.

Very dishonest garage that left my car in worse shape upon leaving. I came in for my first MD state inspection so that I could transfer my registration to MD from PA. They quoted me $1400 in unnecessary repairs. I got a quote from a more honest garage in PA which only quoted me for one quarter of the repairs. Upon receiving my "fixed" car, the traction control lights and ABS lights are always on, the ABS kicks in when I first apply the brakes after putting my car in drive (super dangerous!) and my car sounds TERRIBLE. I took it back in so that they could fix their mistake. After an entire day they realized they messed up and their mechanic screwed up my left bearing. They tried to quote me $200 more for this repair, but there is no chance they ever see my business again! When I asked for them to fix their mistakes or for my money back, they didn't do it! DO NOT USE THEIR GARAGE! They will try to overcharge you, take advantage of you, make your car run worse so you have to come back in, and lie to your face!

I order a set of tires from an online store and had them shipped here to have them installed by AAA. That was a big mistake. First they didn't call to let me know they came in. I called to set up an appointment with them which is pointless. I had an appointment at 2 PM on a Tuesday. It is now 5 pm and my car is still not ready. I have been waiting for 3 hours now going on 4 to get 4 tires installed. I guess it's an hour per tire. On top of that, they come and told me that one of my lug nut is cross threaded and stripped. Don't know how since no one but myself have taken the wheels off the car. I always hand tighten the lug nut on. I don't use an impact gun at all. It sound like they did it and now they are trying to cover it up. I am so disappointed with the service at this location. I'll a AAA member and I have used them for other services with superb service but when it comes to the repair shop part, I will never bring any of my cars here and would recommend you don't as well.

In general, I appreciate the services that AAA provides, I’m a loyal customer who spends thousands of dollars over the last two years there having a really bad luck with my car. However I unfortunately cannot recommend fixing your car in this particular location. It happened multiple times that I picked up my car after a repair and on the way back home it turned out something was wrong or the issue was still there and I had to bring it back. It makes me think, didn’t anyone just test drive the car before they returned it to the customer?! What a waste of time! One time the engine was almost destroyed because someone didn’t screw a filter cap properly. Just few days ago I brought a working car for an inspection. Just driving back home after the inspection the A/C stopped working and started making noise. Coincidence? Maybe but after bringing the car back I heard some part was loose. It was also done under the warranty because they fixed the A/C one year ago. The issue was ‘fixed’ and immediately after I picked up my car the A/C was still making noise and stopped working before I even got home! It’s just too much, the mechanics there don’t know what they are doing!!!!
