Polar Bear diagnosed and repaired an oil leak on my vehicle. About a month after the repair I noticed that oil was still leaking and took it back to be inspected. It turned out that while the original diagnosis was correct - my oil pan had been leaking - and were repaired correctly - there was also a leak in an area that would have required a repair cost worth much more than the value of the vehicle. The reason I would (and have) recommended Kevin and his staff is that when I took my vehicle back he and his people worked many many hours with out charge, even after he determined that this issue was way beyond what the original repair covered. I have since purchased a new vehicle - covered under a warranty that (hopefully :-) will get me through the payments. If I have a problem I will absolutely take my vehicle back to Polar Bear. I will take my new car to them for any service requirements also. I have used them in the past and will continue to recommend that as honest and competent. They are the best!!!

The front counter person was friendly and helpful. The service & repair work to be done was appropriate and did not include invoice-increasing but unnecessary "suggested" work. The repairs were done well, there was no unfinished work, and there was no need to go back for adjustment.

I am always taken care of quickly and fairly.
