Vander Wal's have serviced my car for the last four years. They have found things during regular oil changes and etc that need to be taken care of and I appreciate that as I want to be able to get in my car and go wherever I need to go and not worry about it.

I am extremely happy with the work. They are convenient, they recommend other places, and when I go in there they took care of me right away. They are my neighbors too. I can't judge their prices and I don't shop around and they are fair with the prices..

I took a car down there to have them take a look at it, they were very good. When I dropped it off they gave me a ride home, and they came and picked me up when the work was finished so I could bring my car home.

I took my car in for the air conditioner charged. They charged it and I was charged an extra 20.00 for to add the dye in the Freon. The air conditioner worked one day and I took the car back in and they could not see where it leaked. They re-energized it and it worked one day and I am not taking it back. It was 150.00 and it was a waste of money. I took it to another garage and I have no problem with it. I was so disgusted.
