Star Motors is my choice based on referrals and experience. Have always been treated very well and have never needed to return for any adjustments to their work. They go out of their way to take care of the customer's needs.

Always a positive experience at Star Motors! We take all 3 cars to Star for maintenance and repair.

by - Verified Customer January 04, 2017

It is frustrating to me that my car is frequently not ready when promised, and extremely frustrating that whenever I take my car in for an oil change, I am told that they are recommending additional work, sometimes as much as $1000 or more worth of work.

Always the best.
