They did a poor job of diagnosing the problem and they were way over priced. Their estimate was too high. It was nine hundred some dollars. I took it to another shop to have it done.

They guarantee the work and they will fix anything, they don't charge you and tell you something else is wrong and fix it. They are good mechanics. They give you diagnostics and hold off on what isn't necessary at the time.

Verified CustomerOctober 05, 2013

I had a leak in one of my vehicles and they did a good job fixing the leak. So I haven't really used them much. I wasn't really impressed or unimpressed with them.
