Verified CustomerSeptember 08, 2014

Their communication and work is excellent, I had a problem with my radiator. They had an issue with the first one they ordered so they called me and let me know that they had to order another one. They kept me well informed during the entire process.

The mechanic caused some damage and made it to where I had to pay an additional 351 dollars for the repair, I originally went in to get a gasket changed and a clip replaced for the sensor, and to do some work on my exhaust.

Well, they did great work. The customer service was great.

April 21, 2015

Excellent honest services. No longer have too take my car back to the dealership and pay outrages price, these guys use quality parts and a guarantee the work they do. Linda is great at working the front counter and putting your concerns at ease. It's hard trusting people today when it comes too service, I did not get that feeling of being taken for a ride. This place is my new go to for service on my car.

October 06, 2014

This is an honest and very helpful shop. My check engine light came on, and they told me about a program they work with called AirCheck Texas. I qualified for the program because of my income and helped me get funding to help pay for my check engine light to get repaired. I would recommend this shop to everybody. They always do their best to help their customers.
