My wife and I broke down on the side of the road driving back to Washington after Christmas. We got towed to precision automotive and got there after hours. We were greeted with a handshake and were told our car would be taken care of first thing in the morning to get us back on the road. That is exactly what happened and my wife and I were back on the road by noon the following day! Great work and great service!

I broke down while passing through town in my 2007 Volvo. My 1-800 Volvo roadside assistance wanted to tow me to a dealer in Portland for $560. I hung up and called my insurance company. They suggested Precision and luckily, they were around the corner. The got me in right away even though it was late in the afternoon. They diagnosed the problem and got parts ordered within 1/2 and hour. The repair was done by noon the following day and I was on my way. Couldn't be happier.
