He's done everything I wanted him to do and he did it well.

Good work, fair price

Verified CustomerMay 30, 2013

I appriciate the quality of service and timeliness. They say when the job is going to be done and it's done.

Consistent and ongoing outstanding service and quality of work.

Verified CustomerMay 13, 2013

Not only are they professional, but they also are clean and they give you an estimate. They give you a family feel when you come in. Accurate estimates. They tell you before they do the work.

Verified CustomerMay 08, 2013

We've always gotten very good service and the owner is a very nice man. He's never steered us in the wrong way. He's always been honest. He tells the truth about what needs to be fixed and what doesn't need to be fixed. They're courteous. Their prices are reasonable. You know what you're going to spend before you spend it. They tell you everything upfront. They don't add any work. I have left my car up there before, and they tell you what the diagnostic problem is. Extremely honest.

Verified CustomerMay 08, 2013

They do a very good job and they manage to get everything repaired. They have great service. It's not just about the repair. There's times if I'm stuck when they'll pick it up and drop it off. It's just a long relationship.

Verified CustomerMay 07, 2013

They always provide quick service. They do a great job. They're polite. They're pleasant to deal with.

Verified CustomerApril 24, 2013

I was satisfied.

Verified CustomerApril 23, 2013

They're great. I'll go up there and the battery will be dead. They'll come pick up my car, jump it, take it there, and charge the battery. It's great. They're helpful. They're always there and they always seem to know what's wrong with the car.

There is not enough that I could say. I think that Richter is a wonderful man. I'm a single mom and I feel safe bringing my car there. I feel safe bringing my car home. They're great mechanics and no matter what, I can pull in there if I have a light and I don't know what it means and they will stop what they're doing and help me.

Verified CustomerApril 19, 2013

I've been going to Richter's Service for many years and it's a good quality service at a fair price. That's why I keep going back.

Verified CustomerApril 16, 2013

They are reliable and take people pretty fast, making appointments right away if there's an emergency.

Verified CustomerApril 15, 2013

The repairs were made as expected. We discussed what I needed and it was done as expected at a reasonable cost. It was the second time I've taken my car there and I get better service there than at the dealership.

Verified CustomerApril 15, 2013

They're honest. They always give me options. If there is a problem, I bring it back and they fix it. They will do any repairs and if they think they can't do it they will tell you.

They do a good job and they're quick about it. The bill they give you says what they did. They break it down for you. They are pleasant to deal with.

Verified CustomerApril 01, 2013

I think they're good at repairing. They're honest and more or less reasonably priced. Usually when they repair something you don't need to go back.

Verified CustomerMarch 28, 2013

I've had no problems with their service so far. It's just good service. They took care of everything that was wrong with the car and they were very friendly.

Verified CustomerMarch 25, 2013

They are so helpful and they don't try to crook you. They are very honest. It's a good location for me and they're reasonable.

Verified CustomerMarch 12, 2013

They are reliable. They provide me with a free loaner car. They always do what they say they are going to do and never charge me to much.
