Everything is done, explained, and they give you pictures of anything they find. They go over everything so you understand what is going on with your vehicle, which is more than I have ever had at any other garage.

They do good work down there, and don't like to overcharge. They think that if they aren't sure they won't just start looking around. They're thorough and the repairs are the right thing for your vehicle.

Because they were very honest with me about the condition of my car. They told me what needed to be done and got it done. I wasn't crazy about the price, but I'm not sure it would have been different elsewhere. They were very honest with me.
