Customer Reviews

April 15, 2013

Friendly, accommodating, HONEST, and always keeping you informed of progress and options.

April 05, 2013

Clark runs a great shop, he is knowledgable and experienced. Grant, the manager, goes out of his way to find alternative solutions, researching complicated situations, involving experts from other venues, coordinating with the dealer when necessary, and offering detailed explanations that are understandable to the customer regardless of the customer's level of understanding of cars and repairs. They explore alternatives, and truly help the customer in finding the right solution for the situation. They keep you informed as to the progress, along the way, alerting you to difficulties and changes in the situation as they occur. In addition, they provide assistance to the car-less customer with graciousness and humor. If you are in the unfortunate situation to need car repair, I would definitely recommend this shop.

I would recommend Clark Motors to anyone who is interested in having their car(s) serviced and maintained by Professional mechanics who care about their work and their reputation. They are fair and courteous.

Professional and nice people. Truly great diagnostics as to the source of the problems with my cars. The prices are accurately estimated and the work is always done perfectly and on time.

I can't recommend anyone but them. I have gone to at least 5 other shops with my car. This company is just awesome. They also worked on my wife's car, so they are not just an older car repair shop.

March 18, 2013

I have brought my vehicles to Clark Motors for over 10 years and NEVER any issues. No long waits for repairs, repairs always done expertly and charges have been appropriate. Clark, the owner along with Fausto the mechanic and Grant as service manager and Henry are a total team most enjoyable to deal with and whom I totally trust to ALWAYS get the job done....just can't say enough! This shop really cares about providing high quality service & repair---and this comes from a guy who is pretty fussy & particular.

It's a great shop with great service I recommend it highly.

Verified CustomerFebruary 28, 2013

I just think it is a wonderful repair shop. They are forthright and kind. They are honest. We bring both of our Priuses there all the time.

Clark Motors kept me advised of the progress of the work being done. Cost was more than I anticipated but they did the job correctly and car has been running great since service.

Clarks is a great place for car service. They are honest and helpful in their appraisal of what is a top priority. With an older vehicle like mine that is super important given that lots of things need some attention.
