I just a had a problem with my alternator. They were able to figure out what the problem was.

by - Verified Customer July 29, 2016

They are very professional, courteous, and friendly. All in all, it is a good place to bring your vehicles to.

by - Verified Customer July 28, 2016

They absolutely troubleshooted what I needed. They were awesome. They got to the bottom of it really quick. They didn't rip me off. Their prices were very fair.

by - Verified Customer July 14, 2016

They were quick and they fixed my vehicle. I thought they were extremely overpriced. I took it to my mechanic in my hometown and it would have been half the price.

by - Verified Customer July 08, 2016

They do a thorough job. When you ask them to do something, they usually go the extra mile to make sure it's good. I will probably be going there a few more times.

It was satisfactory. It was done as I expected it to be done.

by - Verified Customer June 29, 2016

I just went in for an oil change and a lube job. I also had to get new license plates and he kindly put them on for me. I have dealt with Performance Prep for the last several years and I would highly recommend them. They are very personable. After you have been there a few times, you are on a first name basis. It is very comfortable.

by - Verified Customer June 29, 2016

They took care of everything that I needed quickly.

by - Verified Customer June 27, 2016

Excellent. I have been going to them for 30 years. They are able to diagnose the problem and get it fixed.

by June 20, 2016

It was okay. I have a troubled car and it still isn't fixed. It really isn't his problem though.

They identified the problem and it wasn't something that they could fix. It was an exhaust problem. They said to take it to an exhaust shop. We were pleased because it wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. I was pleased that the problem that I thought it was, wasn't. I was more than satisfied.

by - Verified Customer June 14, 2016

They do what I want at a reasonable price. They get it done. I can't say that for the dealer. They have serviced 4 cars for me over the years.

by - Verified Customer June 10, 2016

They were great. They did what I asked.

by - Verified Customer May 13, 2016

I sent the car in for repairs. They attempted the repairs and weren't able to do so. I am taking the car back in tomorrow morning. They are very professional and do good work. They just can't fix my problem yet.

by May 05, 2016

I found them caring. It was an outstanding quality of work.
