I wouldn't bring my car anywhere else for repairs. This is the best shop ever to service my Mercedes and my Stratus. I have confidence in their domestic and import repairs. They are very fair, and honest.

I have and will continue to recommend this shop to friends and family. The customer service and quality of work is above and beyond any other shop I have ever gone to. They are knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and are reasonably priced. They will not do or suggest work be done that is not needed. I could not be more pleased with them and my wallet isn't empty when I leave. I will continue to use this shop and rely on them for solid, accurate advice when it comes to my car.

Clint Dudley and his staff are class acts. I've brought my Mercedes ML350 to them twice and both times they were responsive, polite, friendly, and fair. On top of it, the versatility of their expertise is impressive - they can and will fix any make, any model. Finally, they stand behind their work with an impressive warranty on their repairs. I trust Clint and his team wholeheartedly.
