Rick's Automotive is great! They've been my family's go-to auto shop for years. They're honest, straight forward, and I hear they even work on hybrids now! Thanks Rick!

by - Verified Customer January 29, 2017

Rick was kind and understanding. Did an assessment of the car and came back with a thorough diagnostic including photos and categories explaining which problems should be attended to first.

by - Verified Customer January 24, 2017

Problem was not fixed, they guessed on the diagnostic and changed out a part that was not needed to be changed out.

by - Verified Customer January 18, 2017

The service was finished promptly, and the new cigarette lighter I needed works fine, but the electrical work caused the airbag warning light to flash endlessly and nobody caught it before I picked up the car, and I've not had time to go back and have it corrected. A minor inconvenience.

by - Verified Customer January 15, 2017

Great experience, I will be back!

Rick is always professional & respectful. And he is knowledgeable in his field. I would trust him in any future repairs and with all of my automotive needs.

by - Verified Customer January 10, 2017

Rick's always goes above and beyond, they will point out issues that need to be addressed, and prioritize based on importance, which is unheard of in this industry, and so greatly appreciated. Rick is the best and I highly recommend his services.

by - Verified Customer January 10, 2017

Rick gave a good overview of other issues that my vehicle has and it is because of money that I will have to wait for those to be fixed.

by - Verified Customer January 09, 2017

Rick diagnosed my car problem very quick. The final price is within the estimates! Very friendly and helpful!!!

by - Verified Customer January 04, 2017

Everything was done in a timely matter.

by - Verified Customer December 21, 2016

My Armada would not start. Turned out to be the converter sensor. Problem solved. He also turned the tire sensor light off and fixed the radio controls on the steering wheel. Maybe fixed in rebooting the computer. Well done. Thanks.

Rick was able to get me an appointment at a convenient time, and had me on my way 'on time' - I had another commitment later that afternoon. He is always thorough about explaining work done and/or work that needs to be performed, including estimates and importance.

Rick quoted me one price and charged more when I returned. Also said he was using Audi factory parts. But put after market parts that were not compatible . My car shakes makes pumping noises other sounds that were not there before very upset with the service, I don't think he knows how to work on Audi cars...

by - Verified Customer February 24, 2016

Checked brakes and wheel alignment while changing oil. Better service and price than the dealership.
