He has easy scheduling for an appointment. Courteous, no surprises. They fix tires at no charge. They are really good people to work with.

We had two or three of our cars in there and they always figure out what is wrong with it. They also find a bill that's fair. It's just a very honest place to go to.

by - Verified Customer July 15, 2015

They give you a loaner car while they work on your car, they are very fair.

The men in the office were friendly. My car seems fine. I was unsure whether they test drove the vehicle. So I am assuming that they did everything on the paperwork. They are a local company my family uses with no complaints. They also took over the shop that I used to go to.

by - Verified Customer June 25, 2015

Although there was a problem with one of the parts they put in, they were very prompt about getting it fixed. This showed great customer service skills. The price was also good.

by - Verified Customer June 18, 2015

True to their word, good service and very accomodating

I think their work was very good but I think they charge a little bit too much.

by - Verified Customer May 29, 2015

I got an appointment quickly for a brake issue. They were efficient, courteous to deal with.

by - Verified Customer May 28, 2015

The staff was very friendly and detailed in what needed to be done. While I didn't get everything they recommended, I did get major repairs done at a very fair price. I will get the o therapy done soon

by - Verified Customer May 27, 2015

He's always done very good work for me.

by - Verified Customer May 07, 2015

The personal service was great. They check the whole vehicle and if it doesn't need to be fixed or if it does they are always upfront about everything. They aren't like most places where they fix it and expect you to pay.

The service was okay but I don't think the quality of the work was up to par.

by - Verified Customer February 25, 2015

The exceeded expectations.

by February 18, 2015

I was not happy with their quotes for work that wasn't needed, the work they did do was outrageously expensive.

by - Verified Customer February 04, 2015

They were very honest and great.

by - Verified Customer January 30, 2015

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I trust that the service advisor is honest about what the vehicle needs and what the potential consequences of delaying the service is. The pricing seems fair.
