Five star service all the way around.

April 10, 2014

The only thing I was surprised about was after I got my oil changed. I had spotted some brackets or braces hanging down where they had been changing my oil from.

Verified CustomerMarch 31, 2014

They did what they were supposed to do. They did not try to have me have things done that were not needed. They did what I asked for on a timely basis.

Verified CustomerMarch 14, 2014

The service is great. They are very courteous and their prices are reasonable. I am very satisfied with them.

Verified CustomerMarch 11, 2014

I have gone there a few times and the same things come up to be fixed again. My engine light was on and it took two times to get it fixed and then the engine light still came on. I got something fixed and they told me that something common might need to be fixed. A week later it needed to be fixed. I feel that was fishy to happen. I will not be taking my car back to be fixed by them again.

February 25, 2014

I had a lot of work done and I spent a lot of money and I assumed the work was done correctly. I took my car to COSCO and they said the tires were very low. I am not happy about the fact that my tires were not checked.

Verified CustomerFebruary 13, 2014

We were very pleased with the service.

Verified CustomerFebruary 07, 2014

They give good service at a good price.

Verified CustomerFebruary 03, 2014

He just treats you fair and does it on time. It is hard to find somebody to treat you fair. He never did any repairs that I didn't OK.

They did exactly what I wanted and the price I expected. They were courteous.

Verified CustomerJanuary 24, 2014

I am always happy with the way they treat me and their prices are very reasonable.

Verified CustomerJanuary 14, 2014

They are polite, professional and did the job honestly. I've been with them for years and they are decent and their prices are nice.

Verified CustomerJanuary 14, 2014

The job was done satisfactory but not to perfection, they told me I had a pan leak but instead of tightening the bolts they sent it back out instead of fixing it.

January 13, 2014

They are always super helpful, they go out of their way to help me. They took my car in and did a diagnostic and other services for free, I felt that they weren't just out for the money and that they actually care about their customers.

They were very friendly, helpful and honest. They fixed it right the first time and at a fair price.

October 30, 2014

I was very pleased with how thorough and upfront they were in explaining the details of the diagnostic testing they did to find the problem. They went the extra mile putting extra time into finding it and didn't try to sell me once they found the problem. I asked for an estimate. I compared prices and theirs was low. They topped off all my fluids as a courtesy.
