The service was extremely friendly and fast. The owner was very straight-forward in his explanations and did not muddy the water with any sales pitches. He seemed trustworthy, knowledgeable, and interested in meeting my needs without extra fluff. I was very satisfied with my experience.

Very friendly people and atmosphere. Work was done in a timely manner.

Problem quickly diagnosed, an additional problem discovered and a cost-effective, on-time repair that added more miles to my car's life.

by - Verified Customer September 30, 2016

They fixed the rear differential and it seems to be no longer making that scraping noise so I believe they did a good job.

Work was done as initially laid out in the estimate. However, plastic door frame was broken and jury-rigged back together. Engine trouble light was left on.

by - Verified Customer June 17, 2016

They were very helpful and professional. I was able to get an appointment same week for a 60000-mile check-up. When they made a small mistake, I came back later the next week, and they fixed the problem very quickly (some loose screws somewhere that were making lots of noise). They also gave me a coupon off my next service.

by - Verified Customer June 11, 2016

Knowledgeable and fair. Doesn't feel like your getting screwed.

Jeff is nice. He fulfilled his promise that my car will be finished on time.

by - Verified Customer May 27, 2016

AMAZING! I took my car there to get my window fixed, and they gave me a loaner car because they had it for more than a day. Reasonable price. More problems on my car to fix, so I will definitely be coming back.

Quick service at a fair price. Japanese Carmasters was able to fix my fuel pump electrical problem within a few hours. My truck was towed in and I was able to drive out.

by - Verified Customer January 25, 2016

It is an average repair shop. Nothing out of the ordinary.
