The repairs were done fast and they were very courteous.

We've been using Anker auto service since 1983 and we have been totally satisfied with his performance and that's why we're still there.

They do the repair as affordable as possible. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries for them to get it right, but they try with the least expenses and they are always fair with the customer. In a few cases they've stayed late to get it done, so overall very pleased with the service.

It's difficult to describe the level of dedication of Dave to his quality of work and the customer response. While I try to do most of my work myself, that which is beyond me I always leave to Dave, and additionally, he has always been available for a consultation should I run into trouble. It's refreshing to see his ethical approach to business, and all of this extends to his staff as well.

May 18, 2010

I agree with all of the reviewers on this site. As a customer for over 20 years, I can say that Dave and his staff are the best!

Excellent service, reasonable prices, knowledgeable and very helpful people. I have been taking my cars to Anker's for 35 years after trying a few other places and finding them lacking. Since I usually keep cars for >10 years these are often higher mileage vehicles. I had a Volkswagen Rabbit for 11 years, an Acura Integra for 14 years (170,000 miles), and a Mazda 323 that I bought used and was 12 years old, >180,000 miles, when I sold it.I have never had a mechanical problem with one of my cars that Anker's couldn't solve. They have helped me avoid unnecessary expenditures while keeping my cars in great condition. They have been very responsive in emergencies and accommodating if my schedule necessitated a quick turn-around. The quality of service here is superb in every way. It has been a pleasure to be able to count on them over the years.

Anker,s sercice is excellent and the charges are reasonable. Anker,s has serviced my high mileage cars for many years including a cambry that lasted over 200,000 miles and just service my corolla that presently has 180,000 miles
