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

Very fast and efficient service. Called off of a whim due to their high ratings needing an alignment, they were all very friendly and knowledgeable. Shane and Jesse were a pleasure to deal with and helped me with an exhaust issue even though I only came in for an alignment! I will gladly be back for all of my needs!

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
