Great service.

Verified CustomerJanuary 14, 2015

The service and pricing is excellent. I appreciate that an oil change will be completed in an hour unlike the dealership which always seems to take over 2 hours.

Verified CustomerJanuary 13, 2015

They are super honest and provide their services at a good price. I really like how they explain very well what is the status of your car and they do not push you to fix anything that doesn't need repair.

I only had an oil change so I don't have much to go on but in total I have used this shop twice and have been very satisfied with the service and value.

Sean and all the crew and office staff really go to great lengths to provide reliable repairs at a reasonable cost. Communication with the shop is always easy and dependable.

Verified CustomerJanuary 25, 2014

1) They do good work at a reasonable price. 2) They provide great customer service. 3) They have a comfortable, and clean waiting area unlike most shops.

Verified CustomerJanuary 25, 2014

Called before coming in to get an estimate for replacing brake pads. I was told $300 over the phone and was charged $350. Felt like they were just telling me what I wanted to hear to get me into the shop. They did a complementary multipoint inspection and told me I needed to replace my transmission fluid because it was looking "very" dark. That couldn't be right because I literally had it replaced the day before they looked at it. I checked it myself at home and it looked fine. Seems like a typical auto shop trying to milk its customers for all the money they can get, even if it isn't honest.

I now have an oil leak in my car and before I brought it to The Auto Shop my car didn't have a leak. Could be a coincidence that it started leaking that day?

THE auto shop has bar none some of the best customer service I have seen out of any auto repair shop. They offer shuttle rides to the mall to watch a movie which they provide a ticket to. They also have a great warranty with 2 year/24,000 miles which makes me feel well about the investment I put into my car.
