I found Walt's Auto Service, recently, and am going in today to get a major preventative service (timing belt, water pump, etc) there. I have found so far excellent service and communications. In addition, their estimates are accurate. I plan to continue to use them, unless they give me a reason not to.

I took my car to Walt's because it is close to my home and my neighbor went there a few weeks ago and had a great experience. I can see why. The two men in the front office were very friendly and helpful. They didn't belittle me or patronize me for being a girl which was nice. They explained the problem clearly and gave me my options. I didn't feel pressured to spend extra money on anything I didn't need. My brakes were fixed quickly and I haven't had a problem with them since. I appreciate honest businesses and employees and was very impressed with my experience!!!

Went to this repair shop because my truck was steering to the left when i put on the brakes. Not only were the two guys in the office very nice, they explained the problem clearly, and fixed it right for a much lower cost then I would have paid at a dealership. I would not hesitate to bring any of my vehicles there for repair, and will recommend my friends to go there. A+ shop!

I chose this shop for their close to home location and specialty of Honda & Toyota cars. This is a small garage amongst a row of about six auto shops. The office consist of two people, very friendly. I took my car in for basic maintenance oil,filter change and wanted my fluids checked and capped. I paid 125.00 This shop cost pretty much the same as going to the Toyota Dealer for basic maintenance. What I was real unhappy about was my wait time. I waited 3-1/2 hrs for an oil change. This shop is in an industrial area and there is absolutely no where to go. Another thing happen which is why I would never return to this shop. The mechanic did not check any of my fluids. Two weeks later I lifted my hood to find my break fluid 1/4 full and it was so black. I had no window fluid which is my least concern. I took my car elsewhere to have the break fluid flushed and replaced.
