Satisfied Customers in Albany, NY

Living in Staten Island, my son was up in Albany near his college and had an issue which caused all the transmission fluid to leak out. Unable to drive any further, he called me and I did some quick research on the web and found Capitaland by chance. After reading the online reviews I was confident in the decision to have the car towed to the capable hands of Rick and Al. What an excellent choice I made. Rick and Al are the most professional and honest people I have met. Being 200 miles away from them, I was expecting the worst, but found out the issue was with the radiator and not a transmission failure as I was expecting based on what my son experienced. These guys could have easily tried to sell me on needing a new transmission but were super honest and the price was much better than I had expected.Thank you Rick! If I can get your AM radio station over the internet I'll be sure to tune in on Saturday mornings. I would recommend this shop to anyone I know.
Took my 2012 Mercedes to CapitaLand for complete oil change service and NYS inspection, the guys did an outstanding job! And the best part it cost me half of what I would have paid at the dealer. CapitaLand specializes in Foreign cars as well as need to go to the dealer and pay all that money! Thank you Rick!
I own an auto repair shop in Denver, Colorado that has been in business for 35 years. Last month, my son was driving on the Northway from college towards the Albany Airport to catch a flight to a job interview. His car broke down 20 miles from the Airport. The tow truck driver gave him a ride to the airport and dropped the car off at Capitaland. Within a day Rick determined that the engine in his car was not repairable and recommended that we forgo the expense of replacing it. They also helped arrange a sale of the car to a salvage company. Capitaland went over and above to help, and their customer service is great, and their charges were reasonable. I would recommend Capitaland to anyone needing car repair. Thanks!

Rick was very knowledgable when it came to working on my car. It was great to know I was able to avoid paying high dealership prices and get my car fixed my auto care specialists. I would recommend anyone who has an auto repair issue to call Capitaland Auto Service.

Hello Rick

Three months ago my car refused to start immediately. You did some diagnostic work and replaced the oxygen sensor. I thought it would be good to let you know that you got it right and now is working fine.

Just wanted to thank you for always finding time for our vehicles, especially when it is an “emergency” repair, inspection or other issue. Your excellent service throughout so many years has not gone unappreciated. We are so fortunate to have you around the corner from our business.

I want to thank you and your staff for your kindness and hospitality. We were the traveling campers that you serviced our 98 Ford F150 that blew a cylinder. It was a bad day but your fine folks worked on troubleshooting to find the issue. You and your folks will always be remembered.

I can't thank you enough for working on my Mercedes Benz today, changing the oil, filters and doing my NYS inspection. Everything is great and you saved me a lot of money not having to go to the dealer. You and your mechanics provide excellent service! I will see you in another 10,000 miles!
Dear Rick, Al, Scott, and the Guys;

Thank you for all your hard work and caring for our “old” cars. You do great work and we feel fortunate to have found you!! Thanks again. Fondly, Arnie, Sarah, Linda & Johnson
Hi Rick,

Our 2002 Buick has now passed every test, it has run great with power going up all hills the transmission is back to normal! We love our Buick. Thank you for the diagnosis you were able to do on your “ Talk Radio” program and the wonderful service you gave us at Capitaland Auto Service. Just to think after four other mechanics could not solve our problem, we were ready to get another car. My friend recommended you and now our car runs great.
Dear Rick Peck,

Thank you so much for helping me get my 57 Chevy back on its wheels. It runs great! I'm sure you hear it all the time, but you guys are the best! Service was fair and honest! Thank you. Ron & Patty
Dear Rick;

Just wanted to say Thank You for all you help with my car problem in the parking lot of Target on Wednesday October 3rd (1995 Pathfinder).

Cindy was so very nice and worked very hard to get the suv on the tow truck. When you had to be called with the flatbed she was frustrated and I was really upset.

Mostly I appreciate that you were able to start it and then so kindly sent me on my way home to my own mechanic; we realize you could have trucked it to your shop and I wouldn't have questioned it. You get high marks in my book (and my son's)-Mechanics like you are far and few. You obviously have high standards and ethics. Another thank you for calling my son to let him know that I was on my way home, he is very impressed with your service and is making a point of telling his co-workers and friends about your company and we will certainly give a recommendation to anyone we know. I already told a friend of mine that lives in Guilderland.

A special thank you to Cindy she was terrific. Thank you again….JoAnn
Dear Rick

We want to let you know how much we appreciate your handling of the repairs to our son's Isuzu Amigo. Your honesty and professionalism are greatly appreciated. Not only will we bring our cars in for service, but we will recommend Capitaland to our friends and colleagues as well.

Thanks again……Paul & Janice
Dear Rick;

As you know Norrine was involved in an accident on Central Ave last Wednesday morning. She asked me to let you know that your employees that assisted her were excellent. We did not get the name of the gentleman driving the tow truck but he was competent, courteous and caring. The same goes for John at your body shop. You can be proud of the excellent service provided by your staff.

Cordially, Ted & Norrine
Dear Rick;

A big thank you to everyone at Capitaland Auto that helped fixed my Ranger. It was such a RELIEF to have the problem resolved quickly and correctly the first time. Keep up the great work. Jesse
Dear Rick

On Thursday September 10th we came in with our Buick LeSable for repairs. We had brought it to another shop because the voltage lite was coming on as well as the check engine light. If you remember the other shop replaced the alternator etc at the cost of over $200. However the same thing was happening when we brought the car to your shop. When we left the car, we were prepared for the worst! We were almost afraid to call for your findings. What an unbelievable pleasant surprise when you told us that a connection was loose. We were further surprised when you indicated that there was no charge. Rick, we just want to say thank you for your help and above all your honesty at a time when honesty, especially in the repair field is so rare, we were so thankful to find you. We have told everyone about you and have recommended you highly to my in-laws and I have gone to Sears & Pep Boys in the past but in the future Capitaland will be our first thought and destination.

Thank you again for your professionalism & honesty. Yours Gratefully, Arthur & Betty.
Dear Rick

I just want to Thank You again for helping me out Tuesday my car was leaking and I was so upset. I am 84 years old and my car is my life line to happiness. Rick you didn't charge me for fixing the leak, not many businesses would do that. I listen to you every Saturday and I just knew you as a good man, your voice is so nice on the Radio and you know your business. Thank you Rick, God Bless You.
