The level of service is top notch! Dave and Beau are super-professional and friendly. However, after calling around about some of the recommended services it seems that their prices are on the high end of the scale.

This place was too costly for my budget. The owner tried very hard to provide a logical explanation for recommended maintenance but I walked away feeling coherced into maintenance that may have been unnecessary. On top of that, I ended up having to have work done there redone a few months later. I didn't feel scammed or anything but I did walk away not feeling good about service provided.

Great shop to work with! Dave and Beau personally explained all the car repairs that they felt were important to address immediately. They even shopped around for the best deal when I needed a new set of tires. Saved me money and a ton of my own time! Thanks for a painless and easy experience. I'll be back for sure!

We have had our cars serviced at Toole's Garage for the last several years since we moved to the area. I have been extremely satisfied every time I've brought one of my cars there. Both Dave and Beau are extremely friendly and knowledgable and will take excellent care of your car. They have given me loaner cars and given me rides to and from my house when my car was being serviced. They always call me to report on the status of the service and answer all my questions very patiently. On my most recent service appt, there were several items which could only be performed by the dealer. Beau arranged to have my car brought to the dealer and he worked directly with them to have the work done. It is the personal attention and customer service which makes them such an excellent repair shop!

Where else can you get a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty? They stand behind their work. I recommend them if you have Honda, Acura, Nissan, Infiniti, Lexus, Toyota, Scion, Mazda, Subaru and Hyundai for auto service.

Toole's Garage is THE BEST place to take your car, hands down! They are extremely knowledgeable, fair, and friendly. I live about 25 miles away, so it is certainly not the closest shop to my house, but it is worth the drive! Everything they do is top notch!

Toole's pre-purchase eval/diagnostic of a potential vehicle saved me over $14,000. As a result, I found a similar car in fantastic shape that I love! Their expertise and customer service are top notch - I wish I lived closer.

Best ever. I have been taking my Acura to Toole's Garage for over two years now and could not be happier. They completely take care of the rental car and even work with my dealership to ensure I am taking advantage of my warrenty. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a reliable, fair, and friendly auto shop.

I have recommended Dave Toole and Toole's Garage to several people. Dave was an excellent technician at his last shop (Honda Hospital/Auto Medics), and continues to be the best technician I have ever encountered. I'm delighted he has his own shop, and it is because of him that I have moved my business. He is meticulous, obsessively thorough, honest, and a really good guy. He is what everybody wants in their automotive technician -- a go-to guy who diagnoses correctly, fixes accurately, charges fairly, and makes the whole process easy and even fun. Toole's Garage is the place I recommend for Asian auto maintenance and repair, and likely the only place I'll go from now on. And if you think my praise is effusive, it's because Dave has earned it!
