I appreciated so much that they explained and showed me why the repairs to my car were needed. We discussed my options and I felt I got wise guidance that kept my best interests at heart. They made the repairs promptly and fit me back out on the road. I was very impressed and recommend them highly.

Super nice, took care of me right away and quickly and I liked the text I received after.

by - Verified Customer October 21, 2016

So helpful, have been going here since the first time RepairPal recommended it a year or so ago. Employees are always nice and go out of their way to help. Once even topped off my power steering and cleaned a leak even though they weren't responsible. The last thing I had done was take my 05 Accord in to diagnose the CEL. They spent a few days looking at the car to make sure their diagnosis eas correct and I ended up needing a new engine but they only charged me a minimum amount and let me keep my car on their lot while I tried to sell it. You can bet that I'll be taking my 17 Accord there for anything it needs.

I used to have my car repaired at this garage. They are always very professional, very careful not to increase the invoice. Steve also takes the time to explain the problems well before making any repairs.

The service was excellent. They explained in detail every aspect of the care my car received and the parts I required. The price was half of what I'd been quoted elsewhere and I even got higher quality parts. They were friendly and quick!

by - Verified Customer January 17, 2017

Went in for 90K check on an 08 Forester and learned the head gaskets were shot. Was told by the manager that I may as well do the timing belt, water pump and plugs as well since I needed the heads milled and would save money on labor in the long run. Also replaced both sway bar brackets as one was broken. These repairs along with total fluid flush and replacement cost around $3,700. Now, along with RR wheel bearing and brake job they did last spring, my Subaru drives like new and I am very happy about that. All repairs were explained clearly as were the charges and repair schedule. Pleasant Car is now my preferred provider of repairs automotive.

by - Verified Customer January 11, 2017

Good experience, but would appreciate a breakdown of what was completed on my car, as I needed to ask when checking out / picking up.
