They are very kind and efficient and do good work.

Verified CustomerOctober 09, 2013

They are good workers. They do what they say they will do. They let you know if something else needs to be done. They are good on the money and they charge reasonably. I would not need to think twice about taking my car back to them.

Verified CustomerOctober 09, 2013

Service was rendered with pleasantness with a good description of the work to be done.

Verified CustomerOctober 05, 2013

Their service was fast and excellent. I think one of my bearings is going out and that should have been found when the car was in there.

I liked them and they did a good job.

Verified CustomerSeptember 19, 2013

They did a good job in what they did, but they missed a big thing that was broken. So I had to go back and fix it. I just don't know how they missed it when it was right in front of their faces, but I've been through them before and it was good. I guess they just made a mistake.

Verified CustomerAugust 23, 2013

They were helpful and knowledgeable. Wish they were closer to my house.

August 21, 2013

I had a little bitty leak and took it back and they charged me another eighty bucks. I don't think they were fair at all.

Verified CustomerAugust 09, 2013

Great customer service, let us know along the way what was needed to be done.
