They are very friendly they know what they are doing. They talk to you and tell you what needs to be done.

It seems that his business has increased and that is good for him. But there is to many cars affecting others and my car to get in. I needed my brake line repaired in order to pass inspection that was due in just a few months. Then he told me that even after this repair that I would need to come back again to have that same service which is another sixty dollars. It is good work, but they pushed my car back two weeks to have my job done. I live in a small town so I don't have other options to help me and no boyfriend or husband either. If I had a different shop I could go to, I would.

by November 18, 2014

I think they should be more organized. That is why I'm not going to rank them any higher.

by November 13, 2014

They have fast service, and they are within walking distance of my house.

by November 12, 2014

They seem to be they are very friendly and honest. They give you options, prices and explanations of why with each choice. Every time I have been to them they have always shown me friendliness.

They are always on time and courteous. He explains everything very well. The price is reasonable. I have a good working relationship with them.

by - Verified Customer October 28, 2014

The service was really good but it was a little pricey. They fixed the problem quickly and ahead of schedule. They did well.

by October 28, 2014

I took it in for a inspection, they proceeded to tell me I needed a whole lot more and telling me some astronomical price that it would cost. I didn't let them try to pressure me and went to another shop. The diagnosis at this different shop said I didn't need those things.

by - Verified Customer October 27, 2014

They always fix my car well, they get me in when I need to be and they get the work done as fast as they can. They always do a good job.
