I got good service and the owner seems very knowledgeable. I only used them once.

July 25, 2014

It's not perfect. I got oil put in it and now it's making noises.

Verified CustomerJuly 23, 2014

The service was good because of the fact that they were very professional. They are always accomodating, they had our car for two weeks and they provided a loaner car so that we were not inconvenienced. They are just friendly, courteous, they stand behind their work and if you have any issues they will check the car out and take care of any questions you may have. Price is reasonable.
