Customer Reviews

August 14, 2013

I had excellent service. They took care of it, no problem, and got it back to me.

August 14, 2013

I thought that he was very fair and he seemed very genuine. I appreciated the fact that he checked into pricing and called me back. That's pretty much it.

August 14, 2013

He was knowledgeable, took the problem and fixed it, told me exactly what it would cost, and what he was doing in detail. He provided a loaner car for me. He provided a very fair price compared to other mechanics.

August 10, 2013

Honest service. The guy tells me what's up with my car and this time it was the head gasket. He was able to work with me on payment.

August 06, 2013

I have been going to him for ten years and am very well pleased. I know the owner. The service and everyone I talk to there is great.

He is a very honest and fair person. His name is Bob. For me it is convenient because it's close to the house.

July 26, 2013

It's very personable and they do a very good job. The prices are comparable to others. Plus, they are very convenient and they will take you in at any time. They are very accommodating.

July 25, 2013

Extremely good service, honest repair work, and the availability of loaner vehicles. Also, I like the owner. It was done on time, as expected. Actually, the service I had done was covered under warranty so I was happy about that.

July 19, 2013

They are prompt, they are fair, and if they tell you they are going to do something, then they do it.

July 19, 2013

They're very friendly. Very fair in their pricing and very knowledgeable. I didn't think that it was overcharged or that service wasn't needed.

They are always fair and if all the repairs are not finished, you have the receipt and can go back and get them finished.

July 03, 2013

They seem to do a good job. They seem to be conscientious with their work and have good prices.

July 01, 2013

They are totally and completely honest. They are not going to say you need work that is not necessary. They are just really courteous to their customers and very easy to deal with.

June 27, 2013

We have multiple cars in the family. They have excellent quality of work. He lets us know what repairs are going to be coming up too. He keeps great records.

June 24, 2013

They're very knowledgeable and they explain the repairs and the costs to me. Also, if I needed a ride they would come and pick me up. I've never had to use a temporary car so I'm not sure how that would work. My car is over one hundred thousand miles so if it requires repairs that I can't pay for, they tell me the longest time I can go without the repairs.

He is an honest small business owner and I have always gone there and they have a good price. He does a good job.

June 20, 2013

The service was quick, fast, and friendly. They greeted me when I walked in. I needed a ride back to my house and they gave me a ride. They picked me up on time. They called me to fill me in on what was going on. They did everything good customer service should do.

June 20, 2013

They're honest. They have reasonable prices. I've worked with them a few times and I've always been satisfied.

June 18, 2013

I brought my car in there 5 or 6 times and the price was fair. They also had the breaks checked and would look the car over really good.

June 14, 2013

They have very reasonable prices and they do good work. I've never had any issues with their work. We had a tire rod break and they came and got us and repaired it for free.

Good service, their hours, and that he was willing to work with customers.

May 30, 2013

They were on time and the price was right. Just nice people that work there.

May 20, 2013

The guy was a friendly guy. He was informative. They have loan cars so you don't have to worry about missing work to get your car fixed. Definitely the place with the loan car is going to be up there. I'm probably going to go there again to get something checked.

January 28, 2015

No better repair shop around. They always fix whatever problem I have the first time around. I have never had to bring my car back for the same problem. Tanela is extremely honest and will never try and get you to buy parts you don't really need, unlike all the dealerships or Jiffy Lube. The owner, Bob, is straight to the point and extremely honest with you. I trust all the mechanics with my cars and never have to worry when I drop it off.
