Thanks.

by - Verified Customer May 06, 2017

I always appreciate how well everything is explained to me.

by - Verified Customer April 29, 2017

Donato provided a thorough and effective repair. Kurt, as usual, provided excellent and prompt customer service. And gave a very fair cost.

by - Verified Customer April 22, 2017

I know the shop for a long time. The way I trust them is worth a lot of money and time. At one time they saved me from an unnecessary repair at a dealership shop.

Thanks Denis for helping get the Audi Coupe back on the road. Thanks for letting me leave the car there for over a month :) Happily the car passed smog, brakes and lamp inspection and is now registered!!

They did a great job! When I picked up my car the TPMS light was on, but I came back and they helped me fix it no questions asked.

During simple regular maintenance, they found that there was a nail in one of my tires, saving me from a lot of grief as I was embarking on a 500 mile trip. Great job as always.

Meissner took care of my car for 4 years. I trusted them to do what needed to be done and not push me into extra service that the car didn't need.
