It shouldn't take two hours to change the oil and If I provide the oil it shouldn't cost 30 dollars. I will find somewhere else to do it.

He gives you honest, quick service and seems to care individually about what you can afford to pay and what you need done with your car. That's it. You can't find that anymore.

June 21, 2013

The service was completed on time. Everything was done that I asked for and extra. They took care of it at their cost. Every time I call, if I'm in a jam they come pick me up with a tow truck and I use them for both of my cars.

June 19, 2013

I have used Dennis Automotive exclusively since the 60s and travel 35 miles to do so. That's essentially it. I trust their work and have for 35 years.

They do good work and I trust them. I never have to go back for the same problem.

They are very nice and very honest. I would not hesitate to refer them. I have gotten estimates at other stores and they have told me I don't really need that. They work quickly. They stick to their appointments. They are very honest. I have to go out of my way to get to them. It is almost a thirty minute drive to get there, but I trust them that much.

It was good service. Quick and hassle free. Good diagnostics report and the repair solved the issue.

June 10, 2013

Because I had to go there twice and it seems like I paid for my repair twice. That's enough if you have to pay for any service twice.

June 04, 2013

Because they get work done on my vehicles. They always get it done quickly and do good work and the price seems fair. The one time I had an issue they took it back in and fixed the problem and got it back to me quickly.

June 03, 2013

I have been dealing with them for several years. They always do good work and I have recommended them to several people. They are very thorough and try to explain everything. Everything has always been as expected or promised.
