Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerAugust 26, 2014

I have been there two times for emission tests on the recommendation of two different dealers and have been more than satisfied each time. They are fast and efficient and reasonably priced.

Verified CustomerAugust 23, 2014

I've been using them for years and have been always satisfied with them.

August 22, 2014

Friendly, prompt service.

Verified CustomerAugust 22, 2014

Service is fast; waiting area comfortable; techs provide cursory explanation; sometimes technical recommendations are marginally/minimally correct and sometimes incorrect; also additional useful information could be provided that is not, such as when an inspection is performed if it appears that service will be required prior to next inspection, it would be good to highlight this.
