Great service. They fix things correctly the first time and stand behind their work. Very friendly, reputable organization that goes out of their way to fix things correctly. Also, their "oil change" service includes a complete inspection of the vehicle with details of anything needing immediate or potential future repair or preventative maintenance.

JP Motors ALWAYS takes car of my cars. The service reps at the front desk are top notch and couldn't be more helpful and knowledgeable. I always ask for John to repair my car, and he is excellent.

by - Verified Customer September 05, 2014

They need to do a better job of standing behind their work. If they missed or did something wrong, they need to be more forgiving on the cost. like.. no charge or at cost. I have experienced paying twice to correct same issue.
