I'm in Houston, temporarily, and commute from Baton Rouge weekly. On a trip back to BR, the A/C went out. Went to the VW dealership Sat AM and got a quote. $$$$ Tried to endure August heat but one trip was all it took. Found Kudzu, did a search and found A-Alamo. They did the job in four hours for $400 cheaper than the dealer estimate which didn't include labor... Great bunch of guys too. And they specialize in Jags and Rovers so anyone that tackles British autos can surely handle German engineering... and they did. They're polite, efficient and a real bargain.

Took my 1998 Nissan 240sx by their shop to get A/C work done. Background: My 240sx is highly modified, and it has a newer japanese only motor in it. Unfortunately the A/C lines did not match up with my current A/C condenser at all. I took it by one morning and the main mechanic took a look at it and told me he could do it by making me a custom line, but that I should bring it back the next morning because they were extremely busy. I brought it back, and he took such great care of the car (he covered my racing seat and fenders so that it wouldn't get dirty), I was also extremely happy with how well and factory looking the custom A/C lines looked! He also stuck very close to his price estimate, and I now have great COLD A/C in my car! I couldn't be happier and would recommend Alamo Auto Air to ANYONE that needs general or even custom A/C work done on their car. I WILL be back with more business for you guys, and thanks!

I decided to give Alamo a try after reading all of their reviews. I have been pulling my hair out trying to get my A/C to work properly. I took my car to three other places and got three different reasons why it isn't working. I decided to give Alamo a try, to my surprise, they found the problem, as Jane states, they explain everything to you in lay terms. I decided to have my A/C system done. I waited to write this review, as I had the work done three months ago and it is working like new. I will not hesitate to go back and to referr my friends. Excellent customer service! Sandra

by Chief Inspector L HONEST/RELIABLE/EXCELLENT SERVICES!: I drive a Chevy S10 pickup, and I found out that I will have to pay $2000.00 to have the entire a/c system fixed at the Chevy dealer. I think that is WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. I got numbers for other places, and made some calls; and at the same time, I found this place - Alamo Auto Air on the internet reading all the comments about it. I am pretty persuaded and decided to give them a call and see what they have to say. It turned out that they only charge me for $680.00. I let them fix it right away. It didn't work out at first, since there were some bad parts; however, I took it back to them, and they told me exactly what went wrong. I got the parts that were needed, and they worked on it immediately. They were VERY, VERY NICE to me, and they told me not to worry about the situation. Now, everything is working; when I am driving, I feel like I am driving a new car because the a/c works out GREAT; just like a new car's a/c! I feel very, very good about this! I strongly recommended any of you out there who needs auto a/c help & repairs, please don't hesitate to contact Aggie FIRST! He wouldn't make you disappointed; I guaranteed it! :) Written by: S.

This shop is awsome, I shopped around for repairs to my car, I checked out several repair shops as well as the Honda dealership. Was I in for a rude awakening! The estimates took the breath out of me, I didnt want a new car, I just wanted it repaired. My brother told me to take it to Alamo where he had a good experience, I was not getting my hopes up but never the less, took it over. I could not believe it, they gave me an estimate comparible with the dealership, but at a much lower price. You bet I had them do it. I got a warranty, and have had no problems. Check them out.
