The service manager put in a lot of extra time to explain what was needed and he was more than accommodating.

They are in touch with you. They really take care of the problem. If there are any other problems, they make you aware of it. They don't shove it down your throat. They are fair in their assessment and I would always use them in the future. Very trustworthy.

I actually left the car there without calling ahead of time because it was an emergency and they did the repair and had the car ready for me by the end of the day.

Good work but too expensive.

by January 02, 2012

I have been taking my car to Douglas for 12 years. When I started taking my car there it was 4 years old and had 33,000 miles on it. When I finally traded it in this year it was 15 years old with 151,000 miles on it. It was still running fine but was rusting and had some problems with doors that wouldn't open. Douglas took very good care or my car and in turn took good care of me.
