The number one reason is they are convenient. I have always preferred to have local merchants do servicing of my car rather than a national chain. I know nothing about cars and I feel very comfortable with them. They take care of me, they are very knowledgeable. They told me when I needed new tires. I am not familiar with cars at all and I just rely on them to tell me what I need and I feel very comfortable with them.
They were very professional and told me they would find my problem. I was having trouble passing the State emissions test. They not only fixed the problem but they took it to have the State test it and they got it to pass. I had a hole in my pipe which they replaced and then they hooked it up to the sensor and made the needed adjustments to get it right. They also replaced a couple of tires that were worn that I hadn't noticed before.
