Verified CustomerJuly 31, 2012

I just feel that they are extremely knowledgeable and get the work done in a timely manner. They are not inexpensive, but you definitely get what you pay for. There are other shops in town that would have done the same work, probably for less money, but the quality of the work would not have been the same.

Verified CustomerJuly 27, 2012

They actually helped me out with purchasing a car and whether or not it was good quality. That helped me out and I really appreciated it. I would take my car back there.

Verified CustomerJuly 25, 2012

These guys are great and very honest. They can really fix a vehicle. Not like other shops that just throw parts at it until they find the problem.

July 14, 2012

The men here (Mike Clifford especially) are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They were very understanding, kind, honest and straight forward. I felt very comfortable putting my car in their hands, not just because they know their stuff, but because they're trustworthy enough to tell you the truth about your repairs instead of an exaggerated version leading you to spend tons more than you should. These guys are so great and down-to-earth. that you sometimes forget you're getting your car fixed and feel like you're visiting friends, and that's the truth

Verified CustomerJuly 14, 2012

I've already recommended The guys at Ben White North to all my friends! Great service, great price, and super fast work! I will be bringing all my vehicles to them from now on!

Great explanation of the problem and solution, friendly, fair price and on time.

Verified CustomerJuly 13, 2012

What nobody else could find wrong in two years, they were able to find in just hours. So far, so good.

Verified CustomerJuly 12, 2012

The guys in there are very personable and they are there to help you, not to take your money.

They were very friendly. They were very professional, and I felt like I was dealt with very honestly and the quality of the work was reflected in the price. I may have gotten it cheaper somewhere else, but I was more concerned about the quality and I've always had excellent results from their work.

They are very professional and trust worthy.

I once took my car in for an oil change, but they honestly told me that it was not due and did not charge me needlessly

August 11, 2015

Called on a Monday late Dec. early JaN. to see if I could schedule an oil change and 7,500 mile maintenance for Friday before I was supposed to go out of town. I was told "no need to make an appointment, just come on in". So I showed up Friday morning and I was told they would not be able to get to me that day, but I could leave my car overnight. Yeah, for an oil change basically? Yeah right.I was looking forward to having such a highly rated shop so close to my apartment. I will never go there again. Bush League Service.

Too bad you cannot give 0 Stars.

Prompt service and final price was as promised. Appreciated the preventative suggestions.

June 29, 2010

I learned about them because my old car had a lot of issues and they were extremely helpful in keeping it running for me. I recently purchased a used car and brought it in to make sure everything was in good condition. They took care of it the same day I brought it in. Fortunately it only needed an oil change and brake fluid, and they explained how to tell how bad the break fluid was so I would know in the future. They also gave me a coupon/certificate for a free oil and filter change in the future.
