I would definitely recommend this shop to friends. Prices are competative and their knowledge is extraordinary. I called in for a quote to replace a timing belt and water pump,and found them to have as low of a price as I could find anywhere Else. This repair was originally suggested by a dealership after I had one of my control arms replaced by the dealership. After the noise that prompted me to get the control arm replaced did not stop I started to look around and found CMD. Their prices were better so I went to CMD. I discussed my concerns with Joe and when they took the car in they found several issues that the dealership had missed, and they gave me realistic timeframes for those repairs. After being given the runaround by the dealership it was a relief to find an honest assessment from CMD. I am very pleased with their work on the timing belt and plan to go back for the rest of my repairs.

They are trustworthy, which is hard to find in a shop these days. I've sent several friends there. They do good work and they won't take advantage of you.
