I'm handicapped and they come and pump my gas for me. They have good service. I had an oil change there. They're very friendly. Concerned. They help me out.

Verified CustomerJuly 12, 2015

I had the car looked at before I bought it. They said everything was good. Within a week of owning it, they replaced the brakes. The replacement brakes had an issue and I had to have the brakes redone. On all of these visits, I asked if the car was safe for me to drive on a 1,000 miles each way trip. I was assured it was absolutely safe! When I reached my destination, my father noticed a Crack in the tires. We took it to a local shop. They had never seen tires with such bad dry rot. They said I was VERY lucky to have made it that far. They wouldn't let me drive the car any further, even offering to tow it for free to another shop if I preferred to buy tires elsewhere. I've shown pictures of the tires to a couple people and all have echoed that someone must be looking out for me since I didn't a blowout. How can someone fix your brakes twice and not notice the tires? I will never trust them with my safety again.

Verified CustomerJuly 08, 2015

They've handled my cars for several years. They have good, quick service. The price isn't the cheapest. You can depend on them.

July 03, 2015

They did great work on my car, but the communication with them was a little unpredictable.

Verified CustomerJune 30, 2015

The price is the difference. It's convenient. Not far from my house.

Service was efficient.

Verified CustomerJune 18, 2015

This shop failed to fix the wheel bearing, kept the truck for three days and only communicated with me when I called. When I did call, they said everything was going fine... or that the mechanic who was working on my vehicle was unavailable.

I came in near closing time and they completely took over and helped me get the help I needed with my car.

June 16, 2015

I spent 800.00 and radiator fluid still leaking.

Verified CustomerJune 14, 2015

They did good work and I didn't have any problems with my car, the price was even less that what the estimate was.

Verified CustomerJune 14, 2015

I can set up an appointment to have work done & not just chance being able to get in.

Verified CustomerJune 12, 2015

They always do what they say they are going to do. They do it on time and on budget. If they discover something while they have the car in their possesion, they will call you to have you say yay or nay on the repair.

Found this gem of service center by searching online. I called after noon on a Saturday and was able to bring my vehicle in after 4pm for a radiator change which they got completed around 7pm, and got it done inexpensively, much less than the popular chain (was it "BlazeRock"?) where it was diagnosed first which amounted to "yep, the radiator is cracked" which I obviously knew but was now less $70 for their astute professional observation.

Four of the guys I talked with at Little Bros while waiting were all courteous and friendly, and very honest with suggestions for holding off on items that weren't necessary or other ways I could save money. By contrast, the chain recommended several things that weren't necessary at all and were quite expensive. At Little Bros. Shell they were okay with me bringing in my own part which saved me a lot of money since I could find a used or after-market part. Other chain service centers wouldn't allow this.

It's great finding service where you feel like your needs and concerns are genuinely being met, and not overpaying for service. Plus, who else is open and works on your vehicle til after 7pm on a Saturday?! Fantastic.
