Nice group of guys!!

by - Verified Customer March 24, 2017

They always do a great job!

by - Verified Customer March 23, 2017

This place is absolutely great but I'm having an extremely hard time with my car and the check engine light. I spent nearly $450 for repairs and the check engine light is still on and I'm afraid to get charged more money for something they couldn't fix the first two times. I also called to inform them of this but no one answers the phone. Normally, my reviews are good for this shop, I trust them with my car, however the recent repairs are making me feel differently.

A+ for the work performed. However, the car was spotless when left for repair; not so when I picked it up. I will add, when contacted, they offered to wash it if I brought it back.

by - Verified Customer February 20, 2017

Worth the trip there.

Too soon to say but very positive experience thus far!

by - Verified Customer January 24, 2014

It was very bad weather, cold and snowing, and they took me right away. They were good to deal with. Service was good, it was timely and they got it done right away. I went in for something small.

They handled the issue with professionalism, and informed me with updates. Everything was done in a timely manner, no complaints with the vehicle, everything was fixed. They're just courteous, and the amount was correct for the service and everything for the extent of the vehicle and repairs. It was not over priced.

by - Verified Customer January 15, 2014

They did everything I needed done. They did a good job. Nice people, found everything that was wrong, nice place.

Horrible customer service. Actually mis-diagnosed my car. My car was there for over a month and I paid five hundred dollars and that was not what was wrong with the car. They had horrible customer service, would have to harass them to get anything done. They weren't knowledgeable about the car. Another mechanic figured the problem out within six hours. They weren't qualified for what they did.

by - Verified Customer December 19, 2013

They do a great job every time I go there. It's fast. Every time I go there my car is done in a day or two.

The car is fine, I just got the car back. Since I have gotten it back everything is fine. If all is OK after driving a few months, my recommendation would be higher.

by - Verified Customer December 11, 2013

They are very considerate, and reasonably priced. They know what they are doing, they let me be transported to my home while they are working on it. They're very dependable, and they say to call me and I trust them one hundred percent. I give their cards out to everybody and they are happy with them.

They finished the job quickly and correctly. The only reason I would not give them a ten is because it is not close to my house.

by - Verified Customer November 14, 2013

They are thorough. They are good and they are reasonable.

They happen to be next door to where I work. It is convenient to where I was working. They do good work, and the labor was ok too. Nothing to expensive.

They do good work. I had a very standard service and it wasn't major. All I had was an oil change and tire rotation.

by - Verified Customer September 17, 2013

They do good honest work and fix the car the first time in the shop. They are personal friends of mine, nice waiting area, good quality parts, honest and good working mechanics, very thorough, and they explain to customers what they need to. Very thorough, explain, understand expenses and they want to make sure it is fixed the first time so you won't have to come back.

They are bad. They did not actually fix anything. They tell you they're working on stuff but they are not.

by - Verified Customer August 01, 2013

I recommend them because they are honest and straight forward and got done quickly in a good time frame. They were recommended to me. Happy with the service.

I thought they were very flexible even though the parts were difficult to get.

Efficient. Quality. Cheap. They do very good work and get it done on time. When they give you a price that is the price you are charged.
