Very friendly, helpful and I sense that they are being responsible to look over my car in total and not just doing the oil and getting me out of there. But I also like that they don't make a bunch of unnecessary high cost reco's

The staff was friendly and professional. They told me the expected cost of providing me with list of items my car needed repaired to make it safe to drive again. They provided drop off back at my residence while I waited for estimate. The car was not worth fixing; my judgment. I only paid them agreed cost to look over car and make list. They let me keep car on their lot until charity I donated car to came to get it. They assisted in removal of old license plate rusted on my car. They informed me of State of IL free exchange of defective old plates; mine qualified when I checked with Secretary of State's office.

They offer a rental car while your car is being worked on as long as you fill it back up to where it was. They took pictures to help me see what concerns were since I was unable to stay while they fixed the car. They got me in right away and seemed like truly cared about my safety in my vehicle and didn't push me to get things fixed just made me aware of what might need to be done in future.

The service and recommendation of what needs to be done was outstanding. I felt comfortable with their assessment and trusted what they were telling me. I didn't feel like I was getting taken advantage of which can happen in this type of industry... I thought the in depth explanation of everything was fantastic and made me feel comfortable with what needed to be done.
