The are experts and can typically diagnose a problem better than any other shop I've been to.

They are all friendly, timely and reasonably priced. They take the time to make sure you understand their recommendations. I have recommended them to friends.

by - Verified Customer August 25, 2016

Had diagnostic work done. They did not clear the error codes in my vehicle. I had to drive home in limp mode. I bought a diagnostic tool on line and cleared codes myself the next day. Pretty Lame.

by - Verified Customer August 24, 2016

Competent, careful, and timely. Good evaluation of options. Excellent communication. Best Porsche shop in town.

by September 28, 2015

I thought the service was good, but still pretty pricey. Not sure if I would whole heartedly recommend them.

Fast service. Honest people. Reasonable costs.

by September 17, 2015

They are really bad about communication. They do good work. You take it in and the whole day goes by and you hear nothing. You don't get called. Other dealers call during the day but I have to go out of my way to call them.

They are very knowledgeable on German cars. Their service is very good. I had problems with a belt that they had replaced and I had to take it back in. Despite the problems I've had I will be taking my cars back to this shop due to the knowledge they have about cars.

They were really reliable with their service, and they communicated very well with what the work that should be done.

My engine continues to smoke and my idle is still very low and it cuts off. This is after spending 7,000 dollars with them. The two times that I picked it up after being serviced it clunked out after about a block.
