Great work, great communication, slightly expensive.

Verified CustomerJanuary 13, 2015

They really take time to explain the repair and the alternatives. Nowadays, many major dealer repair desk people don't know anything about how the car works. Leonardi's front desk guys know the car.

They have always provided excellent and honest service. I've never been to a better car shop.

Verified CustomerDecember 09, 2013

We consider them to be very honest and they do a good job. They do exactly what they say they're going to do and the work that they do is fine. The reason we started going there was because they did free work on our Golf by replacing a tail bulb without charging us.

Verified CustomerDecember 05, 2013

Really good service honest and a good shop. They do a super job, it's clean and fast.

They're good at what they do, good budget, and on time.

Verified CustomerNovember 28, 2013

Every time I bring my car in they do a good job.One time they found a problem that no one else was able to solve, I had tried for years to solve it. The speedometer would randomly go to 0 an wouldn't register the accurate speed.

November 25, 2013

They have never let me down. They charge fair rates, they don't take advantage, and are amendable in terms of hours.

Verified CustomerNovember 22, 2013

It was a good job and they did it within the budget they said and I was very happy.

They were nice and friendly. They did the job really fast and they explained everything to me to the point where I understood what was going on. I've been going there for years, my Mom and I don't really know much about cars and they do a great job explaining.

Verified CustomerNovember 20, 2013

I believe they are honest. I believe they don't do what is unnecessary. They drive you home and pick me up. I just trust them overall.

Verified CustomerNovember 14, 2013

They have done a very good job with me and are very inexpensive and do great work and the car works better then when I got it for the moment. I appreciate that they shuttle me to my house when my car is in the shop.

They took very good care of me and got it out of the way. They just took really good care of me, they went out of their way to take care of me. They're really good people, Mike, Tony, all of them.

Verified CustomerNovember 04, 2013

They are extremely helpful, I got to the point where I couldn't work on my car anymore and I was having issues doing the work myself. They were extremely helpful they kept me posted on where they were on the repair. It was 10% off on my repair because it took about 3 days.

November 01, 2013

They are very honest, worthwhile, and trustworthy.

Verified CustomerOctober 27, 2013

Tony has always been very thorough with our cars, he doesn't add anything extra, he's very pleasant to do business with. Anytime we have a problem we'll take it to Tony.
