I've always enjoyed the service, been a long time customer, I like the way when I come in for an oil change that they also tell me what else is going on with my vehicle if anything.

Jay is really a great mechanic and guy. He is always up front and honest about what needs to be repaired and what can wait. But, this last visit one thing bothered me a little. My driver side windshield wiper needed replacing and I told him to go ahead with it. But he replaced both and my passenger side was in good condition. Which cost me another $20. (not a big deal though) Also after getting a latch on my driver door replaced now my car consistently says door ajar. Possibly the repair just caused another sensor issue. I have been meaning to contact Jay about the new issue that started the day after I picked my car up, I just haven't had the time or the extra funds to repair another problem. All in all I am happy with the work he does and Independence in general.

Informative staff. Work is done in a timely matter. Was very informed about the work the staff was doing. I was satisfied about the price for the work comparably speaking about other shops. Independence will be working on my vehicle from now on.
