A former employee, also a friend of mine was ridiculed, spit on, almost hit, whipped with towels, and cursed out by the Vietnamese owner Duong Nguyen and then fired... since she has worked there they all tried flirting with her and when that didn't work they resorted to words and violent actions upon her. I've never been there myself but now refuse to ever go due to what I've heard from one of the nicest girls I know.

I've used Check Engine on Airline near LA42 many times and they have ALWAYS been cordial to their customers. The employees there seem happy enough to work there. In fact its the same bunch of folks every time i've gone so I doubt the work conditions are abusive. They'd have a high turnaround if they treated their employees bad wouldnt they? Why do you find it necessary to point out that the owners of this business are Vietnamese? Are you trying to start race wars?
Matt the "nicest" girls in the world have been known to make up a story to their advantage.

I have used Check Engine for almost 10 years and they have always been honest and hard-working. On one occasion, I was certain I knew the problem and gave them instructions to replace my vehicles CV joints. They found that a mounting bracket had come loose and only charged me an hour labor to tighten it up. If for some reason they can't find the problem, they will not charge at all. Unless your vehicle is under warranty from the manufacturer, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

As far as the harassment claim - the owner, wife, and son all work there, so I find it hard to believe any of that would be taking place. No one "deserves" to be fired in their own eyes.

You should get your facts straight, that is not the owner of check engine.

I also find that hard to believe. They guy she said is not the owner but I've known the owner and office manager for years and believe them to the highest caliber of people in the world.

They've kept my out of warranty Hondas and Acuras going for years and will not do a thing to your car unless it's needed. They even turned me down for a relative expensive tune-up saying it was not needed.

This is one of the best repair shops in the Prairieville area. The "boycot" post is obviously abusive, not the staff.

My husband is currently on his way to bring our son's car to Huey (that is the owner's American name). We have done business with Check Engine in Prairieville for many years with great results, kind service and reasonable prices. This "boycott" seems to me to be a scorned individual trying to start trouble but isn't it funny how people are able to read between the lines and know the real truth? Matt, you know the old saying, "don't quit your daytime job" if this is the best that you can do. It back fired on you dude!!

I have been going to Huey's 15 years or more. He and his staff are always bending over backwards to help and advise. Huey has on more than one occasion told me to take the car home and try different things before putting it on the rack. He kept my teenagers cars in safe working condition though the lean years. They have picked me up, brought me home and even helped me tow vehicles when needed. Thanks to all at Check Engine, will always take my vehicles there!

Hi my name is Fujii i currently operate Check Engine Automotive for Huy Tran. I have been with huy now for almost 7 years. The employee your are referring to, you seem to be leaving out all of her underlying personal issues. Issues that i will not go into detail about because they are irrelevant and would be considered slander. These alegations are not true. The owner would never due such a thing and to any customers that know huy and have ever had any relations with him know better. I have stayed with Huy because of the way he treats us as employees, we are all treated like part of his family. The man makes such a influence on me that i try to mirror myself of him. And as always checke engine automotive is dedicated to its customers and its employees.

I take my care there almost exclusively...they have ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS done a great job. Bent over backwards. The same people have worked there forever. I witnessed once where a person at the front desk accepted order for an axil a patron had not fully committed to buying. Huy was fussing because he then had to pay for an axil he could and would not use. Huy only raised his voice a little, but I thought to myself, wow, he/she is going to be gone for that one. But that person continues to work there. The above story sounds like a bunch of POOP. Huy, I hope you read all these notes so you can realize how much the community likes and respects you, and you can FEEL GOOD this dummy tried to mess with you. I remember you checking out a car my daughter was going to buy [and did on your recommendation] FOR FREE. You are the best! I which everyone could have a business like yours to rely on.

I don't take my vehicle any where else. The people here are very nice and every time I go in I see the same friendly familiar faces. Very pleasant people to deal with and I've never detected animosity amongst the employees.
