Verified CustomerApril 28, 2015

They did good honest work.

Verified CustomerApril 27, 2015

He moved me through fairly quickly, his quote was right on. We did some work ourselves and he followed up with my to double check the procedure which was a normal thing, he also got it done a lot faster then I expected. The price was good for that area, I checked around and every where was about ten dollars more. He is easy to get along with.

April 21, 2015

I have had very good luck with the services I have received from them.

April 17, 2015

They are always willing to help, they get you in quickly and they are very convenient.

Verified CustomerApril 08, 2015

I stalled on the road so I called my insurance company and they referred me to them. They got to me really fast, they figured out what was wrong with my car and fixed it in a timely manner. Oh and they also gave me a loaner car without charging me anything, which I thought was pretty nice, the only thing I had to pay for was the gas to put back in the car, which in my book is just common cents if you ask me.

They do the work correctly and they never have a problem doing the work.

Verified CustomerMarch 25, 2015

They are mechanics and not part changers. At ford dealers they go by the manual and if it says this is wrong then fix it. A&C actually figures out what is wrong and then they fix it. I have had multiple cars their also. They're reasonable priced also they're close to my home, so it's very convenient for me.

Verified CustomerMarch 20, 2015

They caught some things that another shop had missed that may have caused some serious injuries. They are very nice and they do whatever work you ask them to do and nothing more without your consent. I was having some issues with my right rear tire so I asked them to take a look at it, I had recently had a tire rotation. They found they the tire was frayed and metal was showing. They said they could get me a new tire for a set price or they could find me a cheaper used tire. I chose to go with the new tire, when they got it it they called me to let me know and they didn't touch my car until I told them that I wanted the tire replaced.

Verified CustomerMarch 02, 2015

They don't have their hands in my pocket, and they do pretty good work. They don't overcharge or try to upsell.
