Very professional.

by - Verified Customer October 07, 2015

The email checklist of maintenance tasks recommended for my Jeep and Jacent calling to explain the reason for each type of maintenance needed was extremely helpful in deciding what tasks to complete now and which to monitor an repair later.

Good service and great people.

by - Verified Customer October 16, 2014

I have always been treated politely and honestly. I have seen the worn parts they suggested for replacement without me having to request the old part be kept to show me. They worked late to complete my car knowing I was leave on vacation the next day. I have received rebate cards for NAPA parts they purchased for my repair not knowing there was a rebate on the part - $85 rebate!

by - Verified Customer October 13, 2014

They have wonderful customer care & service. Very helpful and friendly. More than willing to go the extra mile to help you out.

My wife brought her car in for some repairs and when she got the car back it still made the same noise. She called them back and told the person that it was still making the same noise. They told her they must have fixed the wrong problem She's been busy with work and hasn't had a chance to call them back to see what she should do.

by October 07, 2014

Good service.

by - Verified Customer October 06, 2014

Great service with them calling to check up after service was done to see if more could be done.

by - Verified Customer October 02, 2014

I went to pick my car up and it was dead, got it back the next day and it still keeps dieing and now it will not start again the same reason I had it towed there. So they took 175 dollars and did nothing.

by - Verified Customer September 29, 2014

I trust them and was impressed with their service, reliability, and reputation.

Went to this establishment a first time based on feedback from "YELP". Had some major repairs done to undercarriage of vehicle from carrying heavy loads (brakes, rotors, struts, leaf spring bushings and other areas also. Vehicle was swaying a lot from worn parts. Owner took photo's and explained in detail all the areas he saw that would need attention now and in the future. Explained I was on a budget and over 2 visits corrected all but 1 remaining item. Based on urgent need and recommended need. Felt pricing was fair as not milking the clock.

They will not do an oil change using my own oil.

by - Verified Customer June 26, 2014

They are very nice but I don't think they know what they are doing; on some repairs I had to take my vehicle back numerous times. They did my brakes a year ago and they still make weird noises.
