Over the years, at different locations, we have used his services. He is a friend of the family, is reliable, and honest. Those are rare qualities in the car repair business.

July 30, 2013

Professional, loaner car, quality, willing to discuss options with clients. More expensive than some others.

Verified CustomerJuly 26, 2013

I've been going to Tri City Auto Care for years. They've always done great work and treated me well.

July 26, 2013

I trust them to do what is needed and not charge for what is not needed. I have had good experience with them and seem to be honest. Price is competitive as well. They provide a ride to & from work when dropping off car so make it easy to get work done.

July 24, 2013

Easy to get an appointment, they explain what needs to be done. I like reminder emails.

I've always had very good service. I have been treated fairly and was never over charged.

Verified CustomerJuly 09, 2013

The owner is my best friend. We have been friends for 35 years and they do good work. They are up front about price and won't sell you anything you don't need.

Verified CustomerJuly 03, 2013

I can trust their recommendations for service. And, Tri-City really stands behind their work. I had an unresolved issue with a service, and Tri-City went above and beyond to ensure that the repair was done properly, and my SUV is running very well now. Bottom line is that I can trust them.

Verified CustomerJuly 02, 2013

I have excellent customer service there. They tried to work with me as a customer. They are not pushy. Sometimes as a single woman you can get taken advantage of and I don't feel that way there. They try to help me with the best of their ability. I feel really comfortable there.

Verified CustomerJuly 01, 2013

Very pleased with the work and the personal attitude that they have. They are very professional with their work.

I have gone here for years. I trust them to be honest with what's wrong with my vehicles. I have referred my family here and have felt better serviced here versus the dealers or anywhere else

He does a fine job. He does it quickly and is friendly. He's a good guy.

Verified CustomerJune 25, 2013

They work with you. They help you. They have cars on site that you can rent so you don't have to go to a car rental place.

Verified CustomerJune 24, 2013

I didn't have an appointment. I happened to look over on the interstate and saw their shop. I told them I was traveling and they took me right in.

Verified CustomerJune 20, 2013

He went out of his way to help us.

April 26, 2015

In one word: Trustworthy. Tri-City provided great service at a price that was well below the estimate of the dealer for the same service. The work performed was superior. Will not take our car to anyone else. LOVE YOU FOLKS AT TRI-CITY!
