I like the Courteous, efficient, knowledgeable staff. Clean area. Good location, easy to find.

by - Verified Customer January 17, 2016

The problem was accurately diagnosed.

by - Verified Customer January 15, 2016

I feel that the shop should have noticed the struts had been recently replaced and known that the sensor was replaceable. They could have gone the extra mile and offered to source a warranty replacement. The diagnosis was acceptable.

by - Verified Customer January 11, 2016

Love their care and service!

by - Verified Customer January 09, 2016

Not sure about the service. Had coolant replaced and had to add water several times to radiator and reservoir....2002 Impala.
