Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerMarch 28, 2014

They are close to my home, always completes repairs on time and in budget. He communicates well, and my friends that recommended him still go to him.

Verified CustomerMarch 25, 2014

The service is great, they know what their doing and the prices are good.

Verified CustomerMarch 18, 2014

They are professional, they are extremely helpful and my car is running fine.

Verified CustomerMarch 14, 2014

Trustworthy, fair priced, and they are punctual and timely. I've been going there for five or six years, and I just find that with what Ray recommends to have repaired, he always gives options and I never feel like he is pressuring anything. I feel like Ray is providing service, not just trying to get revenue for himself. He is in it so you will come back, and feel comfortable using him. He'll tell me how much he is paying for parts, and how much he is charging for labor, so it's transparent. When I look at the labor billing, it does not seem excessive, and seems proportional to what's being done.

Verified CustomerMarch 14, 2014

We've gone there for many years, and we moved from the area. My husband went there, and he was fantastic. My husband passed away and I also had a Japanese car. When I passed a sign that said Kuno's I went oh my gosh that's where we used to go and I have been going ever since.

They are reliable, honest, and very clear in explaining what's wrong with the vehicles when we bring them in.

Verified CustomerMarch 10, 2014

I've gone there for a number of years. I've always found them honest and straightforward. I've never had a problem with a misdiagnosis. I have a neighbor who has gone to him for much longer, and she goes to him exclusively. I've never had an issue with him, he's always right on the money.

Verified CustomerMarch 07, 2014

They are very honest, reasonable service, and customer focused. Ray the owner is easy to go to and I have a lot of trust in what they tell me. I have recommended them which speaks for its self. They fixed my Subaru.

Verified CustomerMarch 05, 2014

We have always had good luck with them and they always do a good job.

February 28, 2014

They are competent and they seem to know their stuff. They are not hesitant to recommend what really needs to be done and what is just optional, things that may be an issue in the future and I don't feel like they are selling me something that I don't need.

They're always very courteous, very knowledgeable, and give me good unbiased advice. I think the pricing is reasonable and I trust them.

Verified CustomerFebruary 24, 2014

Really wonderful people. Fast, convenient, polite. It is easy to make an appointment with them. Their business is near a bus line. They have a shuttle service and they will let you bring your car in later rather than just first thing in the morning, so if you need to take the kids in to school first then bring your car in to them you can.

Verified CustomerFebruary 20, 2014

We've been taking cars there for fifteen years, and we've had five cars. They've always been honest in their dealings and their repairs. It's got to be done, and I can count on them getting it done correctly.

Verified CustomerFebruary 17, 2014

Good service. Reasonable price. They let you know what they are going to do and don't charge you for little things. They are professional, reliable, on-time, and reliable.

Verified CustomerFebruary 14, 2014

They always take care of any problem I have, accommodate my schedule, and have a family-like atmosphere. They remember you, and the problems you have with your car. They have fair price, good work, everything, you name it!

First of all, it's an independent shop, and Ray is very good with you about explaining questions. They keep a record in their computer, so you always know what's been done. When you take the car in for a regular check up, if there is something else that needs to be done they call you first, and let you know how much they estimate it would be. They don't give you unnecessary repairs, only what is required or actually has a problem.

Verified CustomerFebruary 13, 2014

I get high quality excellent work there. I get a quick review ahead of time of problems and things he runs into, and personal service. He does not talk to you like an idiot; he can address your questions and explain them excellently. His prices compared to a dealer are better, the dealer's prices are higher, much higher. I worked on cars myself for many years, and I can recognize that he does an excellent job. He's very reasonable, confident.

Verified CustomerFebruary 12, 2014

The mechanic there did a very good job on my car, very efficient. I liked that. The mechanic, I think his name was Ray, he went above and beyond the call of duty.

Verified CustomerFebruary 10, 2014

They did two jobs for me but I cannot verify that he did the work he said he did. They replaced my timing belt and my water pump, but since I haven't taken it to another shop I can't verify whether he did the work correctly or not.

Verified CustomerFebruary 05, 2014

They do the work on time and they do a great job.

I've been using them for years and never had a problem.

Verified CustomerJanuary 30, 2014

I have always found their work very reliable, charges very reasonable, and they're on time. They're convenient. They'll give you a ride back home when you bring your car back in.
