They have very good mechanics and Adam, the guy at the front desk, is very responsive to customers. They have really good mechanics and it's just as good as it gets. They do special things. They dropped me off at my home and picked me up after the service was done. Major service, wonderful convenience.

They said if my car broke down I could repair it at a different store with the same warranty instead of going into the same store where I got it fixed. The car was fine. They fixed it.

They specialize in European cars. The main thing is they're not open on weekends.

I've had both cars worked on and thousands of dollars were spent. They were very thorough with the information pertaining to the price of parts and everything. Basically no surprises. The owner's communication was extremely good.

Alan is a very thorough and professional mechanic. He has done superior work on two of our vehicles over the past six months. He explains the issues, what the options are, and has even advised against repairing something which I thought was needed, but he felt was not necessary at the time. I've even noticed little touches where has had his mechanics tighten loose screws or fix a front license that was sadly dangling in peril due to owner neglect. Bottom line, I trust Alan's work ethic and his moral compass to do the right thing for his customers. I foresee he will continue to build customer loyalty under his current practices.

I felt that they were upfront and honest. I thought I had a bigger problem and when they looked at it they let me know that it was a lesser problem. Besides myself, my son has also used the service and he's also gotten straightforward, honest service and that's why I'd recommend them.

I've gone there a long time. I got my car serviced there the last five to six years. I've been driving the car about a month or two and everything works fine.

I've been going to them for about two years. They've done repairs and oil changes for me and they've kept my car running very well over that time. They're very friendly. They provide fast service. I've never had to go back to them because of a repair that did not work. The repairs are very sturdy and sustainable.
