The guys do good work for me. They called and said I need this part fixed on my car, I said ok for them to go ahead and fix it. They called back and said they looked deeper and found out that it didn't need that part fixed. They could have charged me 150.00 $ for this and they were honest about it. They could have ripped me off and chose not too. I have been going to them for thirty years. They are always avalible for work. They are really good people.

They fixed the problems and took a picture. They told me that the car is broken, then they told me what it was going to cost me so I can understand what I'm paying for. I'm satisfied. It's now working fine.

They have your car ready the same day. They fix your whatever you need. Plus they check your car completely, to make sure you don't have any other problems; if so they will let you know and they also have it on the report. The staff there is super nice and friendly. It's a very nice environment. I will be taking my car there all the time.
