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.

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.
