Great value on the unlimited washes. We also had on vacuum a month. They kept the car looking great no matter the weather and when we used our monthly vacuum and windows, they really did a great job. I look forward to renewing business with you in the future.

Juan and his team did an excellent job for me. My truck has 100,000 miles and has never had anything other than a car wash. Now, it is shiny, sparkling and very clean. Juan called me about two hours in to the job to say it was taking longer than he had anticipated. He said since it was going to take an extra hour, he would also clean the engine area. It was very clean. I am very pleased with the work and will recommend your service to others.

Our car looked beautiful! Juan was so polite, friendly. Having other companies detail our 2005 Lincoln in the past, our car never looked this good, inside and out.

Recently purchased my vintage car that needed an interior detail badly. The body is in very good condition, but the inside was also a victim of tobacco. Leather shows some wear, but mostly needed a cleaning; especially the fronts seats.

I was extremely pleased with the quality of work that was done. Jimmy was my attendant and you could not have a nicer, more enthusiastic and dedicated team member. He is a good guy! He said that after I ran the car and the vents, that if I wanted, I could bring the car back for another pass at deodorizing the vehicle. I will likely take him up on that.

My only criticism was that when i went to leave your garage, my brand new battery was dead. I had asked the day before whether the battery would be disconnected if the doors were left open to air dry - and was told that would be the case. I am guessing that it was an honest oversight and someone forgot to disconnect the battery. There wasn't enough juice to turn the battery and it had to be jumped. Your staff was very quick to bring over the battery charger and we were able to jump start the car within a few minutes of the discovery of the problem.

All in all though I am very pleased. I just brought in another car to be detailed (interior) and will swap out another in just a day or so. My annual gift to my Mom is a full detail of her older Buick with 60K miles and that will be coming as well.

Thank you again!

The winter and my teenage son had made the inside and outside of the car simply nasty. When we picked it up it looked like the car had undergone "Pimp my ride". It looked better than the day I bought it. It was a transformation. Just marvelous.

At the N. Main St. location, Malcolm and David went above and beyond making sure I was well taken care of and my car was as well. They both exceeded any expectations I had! They even coordinated a ride for us to the mall to complete our Holiday shopping.
The auto was a gently used car that I had just purchased. The seats and carpets were full shampooed, windows washed and all vinyl cleaned very well.
I will for sure be recommending this place to family and friends who live close by.
Thanks again David and Malcolm!

Juan was excellent. Came in prior to detail service to ask about area on hood that was stained from bird droppings. Juan tried several items and was able to remove stain. he did this before he even knew I would be getting my auto detailed. Great service!

The new "Ruby" Wash is unbelievable. It looks as good as a hand wax.It really brought back the luster and the car turned heads as i pulled out of the wash. My 6 year old loves the LED light show too! Well worth the little extra $$.

Great service @ Drive & Shine in Elkhart on Cassopolis Street! I have had 2 cars detailed there in the last month and they look fantastic! Plus the staff was wonderful. I needed a ride home both times and they did it without question. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Thanks Drive & Shine!

Very impressed! I would recommend to anyone. I have to admit, that the interior was terrible. I would not have been surprised if they had found an animal nesting inside. My wife and I, both, could not believe how good of a job was done! They bagged items that were found during their cleaning. Professionals! I could go on.
My wife had read your other reviews, and we determined from those comments, that we would try you over other detail shops. None of your reviews were exaggerated.

I am so happy with my clean car today and want to say thank you to a very busy, competent, and happy employee named Montrel who was handling the car care of several cars at once while catching clean cars coming off the line and parking them. He apologized for Drive and Shine being understaffed today, and it seemed like he was doing the job of two or three guys, but he handled everything flawlessly. Hats off to you Montrel! You are an asset to Drive and Shine on Main Street in Mishawaka, IN!!

Thanks to businesses in the community like your, Mike will soon have his standing chair.

What I liked Most: I could write an essay on all the positive things I would like to say about every experience I have at the Elkhart, Cassopolis St. location. It is the only place I go for car washes and oil changes. Because of the over-and-above service I received today from Steve and Aaron I will be telling every person I know about what an amazing experience I had. It's ALWAYS a pleasure going there because of the excellent customer service from Steve. The clean environment, the professionalism and the knowledge of the staff. I do not feel I am ever taken advantage of and I never feel as though they are twisting my arm to make an extra sale. They explain in detail what is going on with my car and what needs done or what is suggested. That makes me feel like I am in control of the choices I make. Being a single female you always hear horror stories about car places trying to take advantage or pressure sell. Not Steve, I trust him 100% with my vehicle. I feel very comfortable knowing that he won't steer me wrong. Today was no exception to the norm. I received above and beyond service. I asked one simple question about a noise coming out of one of my belts. Next thing I know Steve and Aaron found the problem and Steve fixed for me. Again, way above what he needed to do to help me. It was a much more costly visit than I had anticipated because of the problem they found (and fixed) but because of the excellent service I was not one bit upset. Then he even gave me a discount on my service because I was there so long. How many businesses do that? Discount you because it took so long? Thank you so much for employing such high quality and exceptional techs. It did not go unnoticed or unappreciated. Your business is amazing! I even love calling there because of the way the girl answers the phone!! (How can I make you smile today?) WOW! LOVE IT! That speaks volumes.

On the above date I brought in a vehicle we had just purchased as is (It was super filthy). i was quoted a price of $130 over the phone. When I arrived I was told $160 which was fine. I have never seen a car interior this filthy. Your staff was pleasant, helpful & although I think the young man quoted me $160 was in a bit of trouble for under quoting, he was pleasant through out the transaction. My vehicle looks wonderful. I never thought they could perform this miracle! This vehicle was purchased from a family with 3 large dogs & 4 children - I don't think they ever cleaned the inside. Your staff was wonderful. If you can pinpoint who was working that day, they need a bonus or a raise! Again, totally pleasant transaction. My story will not stop here.

More than courteous when I called to make the appt. Very good salesman on $90 more than I was quoted for something well needed. Drove me to work in a shiny clean car. They took a lot of pride & time on this vehicle. It was a surprise for my husband for Father's Day. He would never spend this money on himself for this detail. I know I couldn't have done this good myself. Thanks again. He loved it. Looked like new almost cried!
Judy G.
2012-05-26, 19:15
Sorry to be so remiss in sending this. First, my truck is very old with lots of miles and it was a mess inside. I cannot thank the staff enough for the outstanding job they did. They really went way above in making my truck look good. Not easy jobs, my hats off to having a superior manager and staff. I will recommend you to all. Thank you again.

We brought our blue 2005 Chevy Cobalt in for a complete detail in April. The car was in AWFUL condition. It was covered in leaves, tree sap and graphite dust on the outside, and the graphite dust hand settled on the entire interior and was ground into the leather seats. I told the serviceman to do what he could, because we were going to lend the car to my daughter to use temporarily. He said he would clean it up, but he showed me that even with scrubbing all the graphite would not come off the interior. I told him to do what he could to because I knew it was awful.
When I returned to pick up the car, I was amazed. The serviceman had cleaned up the car and it was clean and shiny inside and out! I thanked him profusely and was extremely satisfied with the work done - it was truly a miracle to me! I wish I would have taken before and after pictures. It was like picking up a new car!
We were charged a bit extra for the detail service but felt it was well worth the price of $140. I have shared this story with many people and I highly recommend Drive & Shine to everyone.
