Lisa , Thank you for the kind words, our staff tries very hard to keep our customers satisfied and telling others. We appreciate your business.

Verified CustomerDecember 13, 2013

Well, actually they are supposed to be ordering me a part and they have not called me to tell me if it has come in. I hope they call me in the next day or two.

Verified CustomerDecember 11, 2013

I think I had pretty good service there, they talked to me about what was wrong with my car, I was treated pretty good.

The shop had my car for 12 days and was not able to properly diagnose my car. In addition, they replaced a part on my car that wasn't related to the problem my car was having and charged me $600. I had to have my car towed from this shop to a dealership to have my car correctly diagnosed and fixed.

Verified CustomerNovember 26, 2013

They are friendly and honest.

Verified CustomerNovember 15, 2013

I didn't like their service. Because I felt that they damaged my car and I had to pay for it.

Verified CustomerOctober 31, 2013

It was not a good experience with this last situation. There was poor communication. I am not sure if the technician knew how to work with my car. I just was not satisfied with the outcome.

Verified CustomerOctober 28, 2013

The folks there know what fair auto repair is.

Verified CustomerOctober 18, 2013

The service was fine but it is very unlikely that I would be recommending a towing service.

October 15, 2013

I took my car in and it would have taken eight hours to repair. It took seven days and it still was not repaired. I would not go to them if I needed something done. When it takes seven days to do a small repair, how long would it take to do a major problem?

Verified CustomerSeptember 25, 2013

The owner works with you. He actually takes you in the back and shows you what needs to be done. He will make payment arrangements if you need him to. The whole staff is great. I would not take my car anywhere else.

September 25, 2013

They were very reliable and fast.

September 25, 2013

They seemed to be expensive. They had my car for a very long time. They did what was needed but they were back and forth on what was wrong. They had my car for a long time.
