Pep boys reviewsWhen shopping around for a new auto mechanic it is good to check out the reviews.  I will usually check the Google Places page, and at the bottom of the Google Places reviews there are links to other local search sites that have reviews.

For the Pep Boys on Springfield Rd in Broomall there are 5 reviews on Google Places.  Two good ones and 3 terrible ones.  One of the good reviews might be fake.  I am always a little wary when someone says something like, “Hats off to Pep boys”.  The other positive review was about their store, not their service department.  On their Yahoo page there are 3 reviews, all bad reviews about their service department.

For the new Pep boys in Havertown there are already 2 bad reviews on their Google Places page.  There are actually two positive reviews on their Superpages profile.  One person needed an oil change without an appointment.  I guess this is one thing they are good for.

Nothing against Pep Boys for picking up parts but I think you would be better off choosing one of the great auto repair shops in this directory.
