The thing I like about CARS is that they do professional work at a reasonable price and they do not try to "upsell" you on work that does not need to be done on your vehicle.

by - Verified Customer August 23, 2016

CARS is a great shop. I recommend their shop to anyone who needs an oil change or major work.

by - Verified Customer August 22, 2016

They are honest and reliable. I never have to second guess what they tell me and the cost is always the lowest. They call and consult with me before doing anything and give me different options and costs for the repairs.

by - Verified Customer May 05, 2016

I've brought my vehicles in on three different occasions for routine service. I've been very pleased with the thorough inspection included. I appreciate the full report provided and there is never any pressure to get additional work performed.

They seem to do honest work for a fair price which isn't always the case with mechanics. Also, Justin (the front desk guy) is super friendly. I once overheard him go out of his way to help some other customers who couldn't afford all the repairs their car needed. CARS is a great shop and Justin should get a raise. ;)

by - Verified Customer January 14, 2016

Excellent, Reliable Service plus they offer shuttle service!

by - Verified Customer January 12, 2016

They were willing to make an accommodation for me when I couldn't immediately make a payment.

by - Verified Customer January 11, 2016

I trust them.

A long time customer that has always been provided great service at a fair price.

Service was good and they stand behind their work. Not sure how competitive the price was.

by November 16, 2015

Might be over charging for parts. Or a mark up on parts.

by - Verified Customer November 05, 2015

Kia service guarantee the reparation in the day, with a smile and by the car warranty

by - Verified Customer November 05, 2015

Last time I was there they changed my air filter, didn't find out until I got there, no asking first... then found out it was $51 for that air filter. Last time I go there eh?

Service is great. Always tell me what they're going to do. Price is fair. I come out with printed information about my car.

by - Verified Customer October 23, 2015

Went in for an estimate, quoted over $3600 in repairs, then after I got home, the radiator cap was left off. Just glad I live close or I could have melted down my engine.

by - Verified Customer September 28, 2015

Prices are not competitive.

by - Verified Customer September 15, 2015

We had several vehicles (that we inherited) that were in several states of disrepair. Being from out of town and needing to have the cars fixed quickly, this shop was able to get all 4 cars in and take care of what needed to be done to get them on the road. I am amazed at the low cost of the work and very grateful of the high customer service we received. I would not hesitate to send anyone to this shop. Very honest and reliable.

by - Verified Customer September 14, 2015

They didn't feel very honest with the work they did to my car.

Everything has been very good, you have worked with me, which is very important to me.

I've recommended a number of people to this shop, however over the last year or so I've noticed the quality of service and helpfulness of the front desk staff has declined.
