I have always been pleased with every experience I have had with this shop for over 10 years.

by - Verified Customer April 27, 2017

My 45,000 mile check up was about 1/2 of what the dealership charged, but I didn't get the car wash or tire rotation. Speaking of tires, because of a Malless evaluation of the car I bought, Carmax gave 2 new tires that weren't included in the initial price. Thanks, Malless!

by - Verified Customer April 24, 2017

The price of the exhaust pipe I Google online was less than $200 including Autozone, I was charged more than $300. I don't know if the exhaust pipe you ordered might be better quality.

Had jeep towed to shop for vibration issues; within the day they emailed me a detailed report of all of its issues, with an estimate. They were very accommodating, contacting me through email while I was at work, and also kept my vehicle in their lot for a few days while I was out of town on business. Best garage I've ever worked with. 10/10

by - Verified Customer March 20, 2017

I described the problem as I saw it with my car. They called and told me what they thought it was and what they would suggest. They told me the cost but left it up to me whether I wanted them to do the work or not. I was very satisfied with the whole experience.

Excellent service. Clean work, very accurate explaining, and price very fair for what other shops ask. Courtesy over the phone and in person was truly important. And, their warranty is impressive.!!!

The shop was very accommodating. They extended the courtesy of taking me home, and picking me back up because I had no transportation. Repairs were made in a timely manner and staff was pleasant. I plan to both utilize and recommend their services in the future. I appreciate the job well done.

I've never been disappointed by the work they do. They are very professional.

by - Verified Customer January 31, 2017

Recommend!!! There's no place like Malless..There's no place like Malless, (in my wizard of Oz voice) if you want honest diagnosis and quality workmanship. They work on most foreign and domestic autos. I took my vehicle in for a second opinion to look at my airmatic system. This system supplies air to level your car and soft close doors. The first place of business quoted me 1800. The actual fix was a 5 dollar part and 114 dollar labor charge along with the 99 dollar diagnostic check. The total a little over 200 dollars. This was the first time I used Malless in 15 years but it is the same professional service you would feel comfortable sending any novice that knows very little about automobiles. The service was quick. I made an appointment the previous day and dropped off at 7, the work was completed by 1 pm. Another plus is they explained what was wrong, what needed to be done and took the time to answer questions. I also had an audio error message and they were upfront that I would need to take back to the dealer due to technology not being available to quickly fix. I appreciate the honesty. The mechanic said he could fix it but it would be time consuming because it becomes a seek and find exercise. This will be my go-to auto repair shop. Experience the best teacher, always strive to make it a good one

My daughter's car began having problems while she was driving on 465 about 45 minutes from home. I drove to her and checked her car and the engine light came on. I went online to look for nearby service and Malless had a good rating and was close by. I had to leave the car in their lot over the weekend. They called early Monday, and had the vehicle fixed by Monday afternoon and I was expecting a much higher charge for the repair. I was extremely happy
