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!

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

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.
