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.

Verified CustomerMay 07, 2013

I just highly recommend rick for the quality and expertise on every car he works on.

Verified CustomerMay 01, 2013

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.

Verified CustomerApril 23, 2013

Aside from the actual repair he went through other stuff that may need fixed. He gave me further insight on repairs I may need.

Verified CustomerApril 11, 2013
