    Dennis - January 2018
  • Excellent service
    Ceil - January 2018
  • Manager was very friendly and knew who I was treating me like a friend and not a customer. Manager is a asset to company
    Bryan - January 2018
  • Got two snow tires installed on my car for 18 each. Good price and they did it fairly quick. Would go again for tire installation.
    Patrick - January 2018
  • Excellent service.
    C - January 2018
  • Took my wife's car in for an oil change. They completed the service, and changed a blown out headlight quickly and with no fuss. I prefer having my vehicles maintained by Munro @ Colonie, NY for the low prices and great service every time.
    Trevor - December 2017
  • The staff at this Monro are always super helpful and fast. I'm always in a rush and they do their very best to make my schedule work for them. I love this store, it's the best Monro I've visited.
    Nicole - December 2017
  • I have used Monro for all of my auto repair/maintenance needs since moving to the Albany region. They have always been very courteous, helpful and competent. I would recommend them to others for basic car repair and preventive service.
    Julie - December 2017
  • I had a flat tire and Monro fixed it promptly.
    Richard - November 2017
  • I took my car in for an inspection and several repairs were needed, including some work on the power steering. I’m usually a little skeptical of car shops because of their potential to take advantage of me (I don’t know much about cars), but I immediately noticed an amazing difference in how my car steers and the amount of control I have while driving. I didn’t feel pressured to have the additional work done that was not necessary for inspection. I would recommend this Monro Muffler to anyone!
    Lauren - November 2017
  • Great customer service got me right in waited less than 10 minutes very professional crew
    Bryan - November 2017
  • I went in for an inspection. One of my tires failed I was told over the phone. I come in to check it out and I'm told they replaced two of my tires and that I owe ~$400. The service was good but I'd prefer to be asked if I'm okay spending that much on the service before they provide it.
    Kevin - November 2017
  • Great customer service. Definitely met my needs.
    Richard - November 2017
  • When I take my car to Monro, I know that I will be satisfied with the every time. The technicians preform their work to a high standard, and no one tries to sell me any unnecessary work. If there is something unexpected needed for my car, a technician will take the time to explain to me the issue and my options. I never feel pressured to make a decision, and the technicians will be give their honest opinion, and treat the vehicle as if they owned it.
    Rich - October 2017
  • The staff on duty was super helpful, knowledgeable & fast!
    Nicole - October 2017
  • Fast and effective work done by knowledgeable technicians. Monro always finds the best way to solve an issue.
    Ben - October 2017
  • My son's Honda CRV sounded terrible. It was obvious that it was a brake issue. I do appreciate the work done and the fact it was done late on a Sunday(several weeks ago). My only issue was that the service manager literally took 20 minutes to figure out the bill. Although a brake hose originally estimated was not needed evidently the cost of labor wasn't estimated originally. Therefore I ended up by paying 50 dollars more than the original estimate.
    Herb - October 2017
  • I have liked Monroe in the past but some of the work was not done this time around
    Joseph - October 2017
  • Thumbs up
    Dan - October 2017
  • I'm always pleased at Monro. I used to bounce around to different garages near me, but once I went to Monro I have my gone anywhere else. They always do a thorough job and suggest additional items without pressuring unnecessary work. They're always fine with a no.
    Ryan - September 2017
  • I called to see if I can get my oil change on Sunday. The guy was able to get me in within the hour and when I went there I was even able to catch a deal on windshield wipers and my oil change was completed really fast. Love the new team they are very helpful
    Ashley - September 2017
  • Great vist, in,and out, used coupon
    Fred - August 2017
  • Called ahead for oil change, got me right in. Told them I'd be back in an hour, came back in 2 hours and my car still wasn't done, they never reset my car so it still says I need an oil change, no sticker on windshield when get another oil change ie how many miles.
    Christine - August 2017
  • No - August 2017
  • They are really friendly and kind people who respect your time. The service was quick and exactly same time as he had estimated. He respected an online coupon I showed so it was cheaper than others around this area.
    Amol - August 2017
  • Eric was amazing. He was so friendly and he explained things so I understood what he was talking about (I know nothing about cars). I live in Albany and take my car to NYC to my dad anytime it needs anything done because people always try to take advantage of me but Eric did not. I will be taking my car to this store if I ever need anything again.
    Molly - August 2017
  • They did an oil change and rotated tires on my specially adapted wheelchair accessible Toyota Sienna minivan. They allowed me to drive it into the bay and tire rotation was included with the oil change. It cost me $29.99 including synthetic blend oil.
    Julie - August 2017
  • Service was done well and at a decent price. Took a few hours longer than stated and I was waiting at the shop.
    Ashley - August 2017
  • It will be 2 weeks this Monday and we still do not have our vehicle back said it was ready last week went to get it and it would not stay running they then told us they had to take apart all over again due to a bad part they got which I do not understand when they were replacing gaskets as of today it is still not available so someone has screwed up something taking it apart or trying to put back together. I would guess you may want to hire mechanics that know what they are doing .Each time we have called on this car they have a different excuse.We have paid over 700 dollars and still do not have our vehicle back.
    Jeff - July 2017
  • They were very helpful and completed the job in a timely manner. They told me exactly what was needed and completed the job as specifically asked. great job.
    Betsy - July 2017
  • Good
    Theresa - July 2017
  • the thing that impressed me the most was that they did not try to sell me anything I did not need (unlike the dealerships). that alone will keep me as a regular customer
    Mary - July 2017
  • Go to new tire at a great price. The manager Eric was swamped with customers and handled every person individually and with respect.
    Chaddy - July 2017
  • Fast friendly service as always
    Robert - July 2017
  • I brought vehicle in for oil change was told brakes didn't meet inspection. Next day got brakes done, they also replaced rotors without my consent o bill was higher then expected. Service person gave me excuse that he was new to the job, so pops missed telling me. Then after reviewing the bill I found discrepancies and called on the phone, again run around about how I was billed. So what more can I say except, be sure you have someone with you when getting work done that knows when you are getting the run around, so you dont over pay .
    William - July 2017
  • Brent and Sean the tech. were both friendly and helpful. Got me right in and looked at my car and pointed out everything I could use with no pressure! I've been looking for a Garage I can bring all 3 of my cars to and someone I can trust. I think I ve found it in Your store. thanks! I'll be back very soon!
    Todd - July 2017
  • Went in to get an alignment and got a good deal, asked them to do a run through of the car to see other service that might need to be done. Ended up getting a few hundred dollars in recommended services. Ended up accepting the service to get a new battery installed. The pricing I was told was not what I ended up getting charged. Could've done it myself for cheaper. Otherwise the service was fast and the guys were nice.
    Patrick - June 2017
  • I had a 11am appt for a oil change. Never left shop until 2pm. Had to wait because they were busy. I understand but they should of called to re schedule the spot. I think waiting all that time was not good customer service. The guys were nice .
    Rich - June 2017
  • Received assistance promptly and courteously.
    Ed - June 2017
  • Received assistance promptly and courteously.
    Ed - June 2017
  • Great people and service
    Vincent - June 2017
  • We stopped by this shop because it was the closest place to where our car encountered a problem. Our car was looked at in a timely manner and the problem determined. Solution was explained to us.
    Grant - June 2017
  • I find the employees of this store to be honest, knowledgeable and customer oriented. It's very difficult to find a repair shop that is trustworthy. The wrong diagnosis can end up costing a fortune in unnecessary repairs and I felt Monro went above and beyond to make sure the repair needed is was properly diagnosed and completed.
    Lisa - June 2017
  • I was given a quote for one price and when I paid, the price was higher. I showed the technician the quote and he told me that the difference would have to be issued by corporate.
    Dave - June 2017
  • The store manager was very helpful. I just went in for an oil change and he found an issue with the car that I need to keep monitoring. Very friendly and knowledgeable, I will be back because of him
    Peter - June 2017
  • I miss the checklist that used to be done anytime I had service done on my car. It was very helpful to know tire & brake condition, etc. The service was fine, about the amount of time I guessed it would be. And very accommodating when I needed to change my appointment time.
    Jill - June 2017
  • The manager was shorthanded due to an employee illness but he ran the front desk and did my inspection in very short fashion. Give him credit for humping right in where it was needed.
    Tim - May 2017
  • Fast quality service
    Joe - May 2017
  • I got an oil change. I was able to come in without an appointment and was in and out in no time at all.
    Cori - May 2017
  • Eric was very courteous and met my comparisom price
    Barbara - May 2017
  • I was very satisfied with the customer service and the honesty at Monroe Muffler. I had an issue with my brakes, they showed me the issue and allowed me to make a decision without pushing other services. The prices were reasonable for new brakes and rotors. They gave me the coupon deals without having to show a coupon. I only waited about an hour or so and then I was on my way. I saw positive reviews on line prior to choosing them, I'm glad I read the reviews and went with Monroe in Colonie. Keep up the great service.
    Todd - May 2017
  • They do a good, thorough job and do not pressure you with unnecessary items.
    Dennis - May 2017
  • This particular monro location has excellent staff
    Alin - April 2017
  • I'd give a zero if I could. My lug nuts were not tightened after my tires were rotated. As a result when I was driving one of my tires flew off. All 4 tires the lug nuts were not tightened. I could have died had I been driving on the highway when my tire flew off! I have been using this location for many years for my oil changes & tire rotations. It's a shame bc of the incompetence I will not be returning.
    Lisa - April 2017
  • Excellent service and personal attention by Eric, the new manager at Monroe on Central Ave., Colonie. We having been coming to this shop for several years and have not been disappointed in the service we received.
    Thomasa - April 2017
  • It is easy to schedule apppt online. Service is polite and not pushie . They offer deals that would benefit you but will not harass you to take 5he deal.
    Ann - April 2017
  • My friendly Monroe Muffler man, Eric, said to bring in the car the same morning I called him, and they got it right in the shop. He told me how I could save money that day by using the new card they had. It was fast and easy to sign up, and it saved me money overall. After an inspection and oil change, I went to leave and it turned out the car's brake line blew out, so they were able to fix it that same day. They were very friendly, showed me where the problem spot was, and were able to fix it the same day. I was able to use the new card I had signed up for the same day to defer interest on the repair and have more time to pay the bill. We can keep our 25 year old mini van rolling along, as they have kept it going since we have brought it there for repairs for many years. Thanks guys for the good service! Lynne
