The last service I had, my car was misdiagnosed. I had a battery issue that was not noticed. 3 days later I had my battery die, when I had brought it in for having trouble starting my car.

They did incomplete work last time I had an oil change and tune up and when I went back to have them finish the job right, they said I'd have to wait all day or make an appointment for another date.

I like the respect that I'm given by the employees/manager, the speed which the car is taken care of (on time & by appt), clean environment in which to wait, accessible location, quality of service.

Have been taking my cars there for years and have always found them to be helpful and honest. Repairs done as paid for and never any question. Have even called them while on my way driving to Northern California and after explaining what was happening asked what they thought the problem might be.
