I have sent 2 vehicles (both daughters) there in the past month and have been very happy with everything so far!

They provided a BUNCH of information before we had to commit to paying for services. Their list of recommended fixes was comprehensive, and... while we can't afford to come back in for a few weeks, we're able to budget to get back into the shop and get things taken care of.

I think that sometimes they are a little over zealous when saying things need to be done to the car. Whenever I go in for an oil change they will find something else that needs to be done. If I don't get the issue fixed sometimes I never hear about it again.

I already knew the problem, no one talked to me prior to driving my car around for 30 min... They then charged me for telling me what I already know instead of discussing what the process was ahead of time!

Had an oil change and was quoted other work. Took for second opinion. The other mechanic asked when had oil changed as leaking (was not put on properly) and quoted 1/2 the price to fix the issue for my vehicle.
