Called three other places for a sensor I needed and was quoted as much as double and others said it would take two sensors. Told shadetree what Toyota dealer said it was they quote me responably, dropped my car off, they gave me a ride home and picked me up several hrs later to pick my truck up. I will use them again it's hard to find an honest mechanic and they where nice guys too.

Prompt, courteous service. Shadetree serviced my car as promised and recommended we wait on one of the repairs as it wasn't necessary at this time. They will check it next time I bring it in. That's honesty and I was a very happy customer.
