Rick is extremely qualified. He is honest and his prices are fair. His crew is also top notch. I've never had a bad experience. I'm a single woman. I have returned to him year after year because of the service I get. I have referred him to friends and they have been pleased too.

The owner is still very hands on and very thorough on diagnosis and repairs and is able to troubleshoot problems when other shops would just do a replacement. He would fix the problem vs. just replacing a part.
