They are professional, and very straight about what I really need to fix or replace now. No lies and no rip off. That is very hard to find in most of shops these days.

They are fast, reliable, reasonably priced, and can be trusted to do the best work on vehicles. If they find something other than what was originally planned, they will call and inform the customer if it is a necessary repair or can wait.

Fair price, good quality, and confidence in the work.

April 22, 2014

It's very good quality service with people who really care about your car and are honest. While it can be pricey, it pays for itself in the long run. I take my car here every few months for an oil change and check up.

Verified CustomerApril 18, 2014

Nice, quick and easy.

Verified CustomerApril 17, 2014

Although pricy, the work they have done on my car has always been very good... I have an older car that I love very much and they always do a great job... Once even telling me they were not comfortable doing a rebuild on a very hard to find component... Very honest and up front people...

Verified CustomerApril 17, 2014
