It's a little overpriced I guess. That's it.

June 07, 2013

Because every step of the process they notified me and let me know what was going on. Every time there was a change in the insurance policy they kept me updated and aware. They gave me options for my parts on the car. The woman on the phone was very polite and friendly. Mr. Whalen met with me and was very customer oriented.

They always take the time to help me, whether it's an oil change, tune up, tires, etc. A very enjoyable experience dealing with a a place that still knows how to use "Customer Service".
