went in for an unexpected repair, was taken right away and had the repair done and out the door within an hour ! Explained everything and did a thorough job
I had my brakes done and had to return to the shop 2 more times after it got returned because the mechanic put the wrong grease on a spring and the breaks squeaked, then he didn't tighten something and the brake wouldn't work unless I pushed the pedal all the way to the floor! My car was in the shop for 3 days in a row, all because I wanted my brake pads fixed!
Very professional and friendly.
They came and towed my truck, knew exactly what was wrong, fixed it and I had it the next day!! The head mechanic and the all the guys and the front desk woman were awesome!!! I will be back!!!!
The staff is honest and knowledgeable.
Great people, good work. A little pricey for what I had done but overall very satisfied.
They always do a great job!
I was very pleased with the service I received at this shop.
It went great! They were quick and professional.
I just had tires put on, but they were very prompt and organized. I would most definitely recommend them.
Responsive to needs, honest with quotes and efficient work- without sacrificing quality. Staff is accommodating and welcoming, and quick to answer a question. Throughout the repair, they provided constant updates about my car- and provided me with several cost effective options for a thorough job to be done. Kudos!
Everything went perfectly fine!

I have been very happy with this shop so far.
I just came in for an oil, but I have been coming here for years and have always been pleased.
Very satisfied with the service! I don't have a lot to compare with when it comes to the cost, but I felt it was very reasonable since I now drive a car that takes synthetic oil. I would most certainly tell others to come to this shop.
Everything went very well.
I don't have a single bad experience with them. I had all sorts of things done on my vehicle and can honestly say they did it all for a very fair price and always provide quality work.
Everything went so well. I feel like you pay for what you get and they definitely delivered on their end.
This was my first time into the shop and I was pleased with the service.
Oil change and other fluids to top off.
They did a really great job. I have no complaints.

As always we had quick, honest and fair service from everyone at First Choice.
Profession service. Friendly, all my cars are serviced at First Choice.
Excellent work. Competitive pricing.
Their work is 100% always reliable, and they are quick with getting you in for repair. They also never pressure you for added repairs (Other than what you came in for). Only problem I have noticed lately is it seems their prices have increased quite a bit. I have been coming here for approx. 7 years now, and my last 2 repairs were quoted prices rather higher than the going rate for private shops. Only when I negotiated the price and expressed my displeasure did they lower the rate to something much more comparable to other quotes. This was not the case 4 or 5 years ago. Original quotes were always very reasonable and in line with competitors, which is one of the reasons I loved coming here. you didn't feel like they were trying to get one over on you. On my last visit I was quoted a repair with the labor rate of $120/hour. This is dealership or marine mechanic pricing, and if I wanted to pay this I would take it to the dealer for repairs. But again, after discussion with them it was lowered to a manageable figure. Love the work they do and the service they provide, just wish they get back to more realistic quotes. In the age of the internet, material prices are far to easy to see to justify increased rates.
Dave has always taken good, honest care of my car. It is much appreciated that I can go in with complete confidence and say "do what it needs." and trust the people to do the job.
They do good work. They are very trustworthy. I have known them for a long time.
I trust them. I have never been dissatisfied with any of the work they have done. I have known the owner for many years.
Great customer service / honesty / reasonable pricing / fix the problems right, the first time.
I have been using Dave since the 70's and 80's. He is really good. I have taken cars in to have work done and he said it did not need to be done. He is a very honest person. I recommend him to everybody. He has a reasonable price.
They are very efficient. I have never had a minutes problem with them. They do great work.
I was given friendly service. It was very quick and I was on my way. It only took twenty minutes to put two new tires on.
They've always been really good to us, we've never had any problems at all. We're just very, very proud of them, and very glad to have them do our service.
