I can't say enough about how well I was treated at the shop at 980 Central Ave. I came in because something had gotten lodged in my tire and while driving it came out. I was losing pressure quickly and drove straight to the shop; I had been a customer before and remembered how well they always treated me. This time they truly exceeded all my expectations! After explaining what happened and that I needed my vehicle for work in the morning, they were right on the case. They got me an exact match for my tire, had it delivered and installed it in maybe an hour tops! I can't say enough good things about everyone in the shop!....Read More

We drove down from Maine to chill back for a couple days in Albany. Our revelry was quickly cut short by a flat tire with a bent rim. We went to several dealerships and a pep boys to no avail. It looked like we would have wait until Monday for a part or drive 4 hours home a donut. But then we went to the Monroe Tire at 980 Central ave. The manager Dave hit that rim with Hein and got us on our way safely back to Maine! Thank you so much!!! I would proudly wear a tshirt that says " I ? Monroe Tire....Read More

Love these guys. Brought my 14 year old Trailblazer in with a myriad of problems. Guys called after assessing and when I asked them to break it down in order of most important issues regarding safety, they did just that. Great assessments, totally fair prices, very accommodating staff (thanks Dave and Shane), I highly recommend. Brought him back twice after to do more and always left satisfied and feeling safer. I'm not from this area, so it was awesome to find a place I can trust.....Read More

I dealt with a gentleman named Arnold and he was phenomenal. I realized I had a leak under the car and I was due to leave on a trip the next day. Arnold fit me in on his busy Sunday afternoon and managed to stop the leak so I could go on my trip the following day. I will be coming back for my next oil chance because of this young gentleman. If anyone needs assistance, call and ask for Arnold! 🙂

I have always had my car serviced by the dealer of the make of my car. So I wasn't so sure at first about some of the chain stores such as Monro. However, this Monro gave me an honest assessment of my car. They give a fair price for their services and always honor their coupons. The staff are knowledgeable about different makes and models and what works best for each. Good customer service, convenient location and flexible scheduling.....Read More

During a road trip, our exhaust started getting real loud. We pulled into Monroe Mufflers and Brakes on 980 Central Ave in Albany. We were greeted by Shane who was a great person to encounter...very friendly, very personable and very professional. We were helped immediately and our van was up on a lift in a matter of minutes. Since we were far from home, our technician Jesse offered a few different solutions, understanding our situation. We left with our exhaust fixed and happy customers. I highly recommend having your vehicle serviced at this shop!....Read More

Had a great experience at Monro in Colonie today! Cody, the (temporary?) manager, is a wonderful guy. When I arrived, he was speaking with a young man interested in learning more about mechanic work as a possible career. He had brought his car in to get some work done - I came into the office while he was checking out. Cody went out of his way to give this kid pointers on how to get started. It was pretty busy, but Cody took time out of his day to go above to help the kid out. That's a level of service and care that you really don't see too often these days. I came in today to get my snow tires swapped out for my summer tires. Cody took care of it all: swapped out the tires, showed me that I'm down to the second layer of rubber and that I'd need to buy new tires soon, offered to place replacement orders for both types of tires since one of my snow tires needs replacing, tested out the tires on the road, and told me to come back in a few days so he could check on how they're doing. He did all this while manning the constantly ringing phone, scheduling appointments, and walking the previously-mentioned young man through how to submit a job application online. Cody deserves a huge pat on the back, a raise, and if you need a permanent manager for that location, Monro, he's your guy!! I'll definitely be coming back soon. Thanks, Cody!....Read More

I was on my way back home from upstate NY, and something on the bottom of my car was coming off. Being almost 200 miles away from home, I was frantic and crying. I had to have my car towed off the highway, and I took it to the nearby Hyundai dealership. The people were not very helpful and rude, so I drove across the street to this shop. The man inside was very nice, and definitely put my mind at ease. The work was quick and efficient!!! If it wasn’t for their kindness, I probably would’ve had a nervous breakdown. Thank you all sooo much!!!....Read More
