Maier's Shell is the family-run business you want to use for your auto repairs. They are personable, more than reasonable compared to the big chains, have great mechanics and truly want to make you happy with their work and price. I'd never go anywhere else.

I had a very pleasant experience with my oil change, exceeded expectations. Schedule a return trip the next day to replace two filters the work took 5 min and labor costs were over $60. I was furious my dad could have easily of done this for me especially at that price. Questioned the clerk figured it was a mistake and I was told that it was the correct pricing. I don't plan to return.

by - Verified Customer November 21, 2016

Vehicle had an engine misfire which, after two days, Mair's was unable to diagnose or repair. Never the less, i was charged over $400.00 for 'diagnostic time'. Not fair or professional to charge time for a problem that was not fixed.

by - Verified Customer November 19, 2016

As usual, I have been treated with courtesy, good service and the job was completed to my satisfaction.

by - Verified Customer November 29, 2016
