They failed to put windshield wiper fluid in the car and it was completely empty. Also, the tires they sold me were dirty.

Got a ticket because my inspection was past due. Rolled in to the shop at 2:30p with no appointment. Jim had me all set by 5:00p.

This is without a doubt the best repair shop I have ever used in over 40 years. They do great quality work, stand behind it, are a pleasure to deal with, get it done when they say they will, and their prices are extremely competitive.

Pleasant, reasonably priced, seem competent.

Have spent some hours chatting with Bill and his mechanics as they worked on my car. They are all car enthusiasts, and have considerable expertise. They take their time and work as if it was their own car. Their wheel mounting and balancing is without peer -- I have been driving since 1965 ... they are the best I have ever had. Highest recommendation. No BS ... I have a rare high-performance Volvo SW ... and I will let no one else touch it.

They are always are courteous and flexible. My experiences with this shop have always been very good.

by - Verified Customer August 26, 2013

Everyone there seems to really know their trade. The owner is honest and up front. The shop is in disarray and needs to be cleaned up. Doesn't have any bearing on the quality of work but it could be a really nice shop if things we're put away and not laying on the floor. Gives the appearance of a sloppyness.

Hi, Mark! We appreciate you bringing this to our attention. Gosh I hope you're not referring to customer areas. We do our best to keep them clean and accommodating. We have a highschool student working with us to help tidy work areas, make the place more presentable. Well, pretty good anyway for a 40-year-old business.

This shop is flexible and will do things like custom exhaust where other shops either shy away from or charge and arm and a leg. Good workmanship here.
