C&T is a great place to have your Toyota serviced. I have been taking my truck there for many years, and would highly recommend their work. They check all essential parts each time they service your Toyota, and will tell you which ones will need to replaced, before it becomes a problem. Chris is a expert on Toyota & Lexus cars, and is honest, dependable, and also reasonably priced. Your Toyota will thank you, and give you many years of trouble-free miles in return .
