Customer Reviews

Verified CustomerJuly 31, 2014

Their prices are reasonable, they're honest, and take care of me. I can come and they accommodate me even if no appointment. I work down the street, they offer to drive me to work when I leave my car there. I love them, I definitely recommend them.

July 30, 2014

They tried to do more work than is necessary and as it turns out it was not necessary it was minor and I fixed it myself.

July 28, 2014

It was the first time I went there and they were alright. We had to wait for an ordered part so it wasn't their fault.

Verified CustomerJuly 28, 2014

They were recommended to me and others said they were a good place to go. Eric was very helpfull and professional with the amount of time he spent with me on the phone explaining the repairs needed.

Verified CustomerJuly 25, 2014

I like the quality of care and they kept communicating with me through the repairs, asking me for approval. He is also convenient with getting me in when it's convenient for me and he offers rides.

I found them to be a joy to go to and I will always go there.

July 10, 2014

Good service, good people, nice facility, good reputation. Very professional. They have done a lot of work for me in the last few years.

July 03, 2014

I've been there many a times and have had good service every time I've been there. It is hard to trust people and I've had many different cars, every car I took there was taken care of. I didn't feel overcharged.

Verified CustomerJuly 03, 2014

It's to complicated to explain, I had to go to the dealership and 800 dollars later and I still have problems. I would not recommend them.

Verified CustomerJune 26, 2014

They gave good service and let me know what was going on with the work. His estimates were pretty close to the final price, but the prices were high.

Verified CustomerJune 25, 2014

They are honest, the work is done in a timely manner and they are very easy to work with. He shows you the broken parts and gives you a timeline of how long those parts should last.

Verified CustomerJune 19, 2014

I have had experience with them in the past, they did good work, I was very happy with them.

Verified CustomerJune 19, 2014

My price I got from Honda was one hundred and some dollars. It was outrageous. I called this phone number and it was forty dollars and it was a great price. Service was great, I didn't wait too long. People were friendly. The work is great and no problems. I'm satisfied with the work.

Treated like a king at the store, they did a good job. They are really fast and did it when they said it would be done.

Verified CustomerJune 12, 2014

They weren't bad but they weren't good they didn't even fix my Audi.

Verified CustomerJune 10, 2014

They did an excellent job and they were on time. With them I never have to go back after they do work on my car.

Verified CustomerJune 09, 2014

They had excellent customer service, took me to and from work if I needed it, they were good at staying at the price, nice, pleasant, and I feel I can trust them. They are approachable, their personality is something I haven't seen in a car place before. I have never had problems with the same situation again, convenience to everything. Very centrally located.

March 08, 2015

Really good, honest and straightforward service. So glad they branched out to do more than transmissions.
