Great customer service and timely work

by - Verified Customer January 02, 2017

Thank you for being upfront and fair with all the repairs that needed to be done on my Sebring. The cost for repair and the age and mileage just wasnt worth the cost to fix.

Ok

by - Verified Customer December 01, 2016

I not only encountered Victor one of the awesome service technicians. I met the owner John who not only test drove my truck to aid in his diagnosis of my truck problems along with a computer diagnostic. These two remarkable individuals are extremely courtesy and professional. John leads by example. These gentlemen poses incredible listening skills. All my concerns and questions were addressed. Their customer service skills are impeccable. My very first visit to their shop. Which I discovered online and by a competitor. I was surprised to discover the price I payed for parts and labor was a lot less than the original estimate. The shop and office was immaculate. I have now become a life long customer. I was totally impressed with the professionalism, courtesy and overall work performed on my truck. I intend to recommend this shop to all my friends. Especially my single female friends, who normally are taken advantage of by other auto shops. And last but not least. My truck had a 100% vehicle inspection and was washed and detailed before I picked it up. All completed in the same day.

by - Verified Customer December 01, 2016

I brought my car in for a smog check, I waited for 45 minutes with my truck inside the place. When they started the smog check the machine broke. A 30 minute job took 2 hours and I was not happy. The people were nice.

by - Verified Customer November 09, 2015

They check everything for me.

by - Verified Customer November 05, 2015

When you take your car to them they try to tell you this and that. Instead of pressuring you into repairs they talk to you about them. I would recommend them to anybody because they get you the right prices and they do a good job.

by - Verified Customer November 04, 2015

Competent technicians. Conscientious service.

by - Verified Customer November 02, 2015

I think the prices are high. They don't have a regular oil change. They want to do an oil and tuneup, they want to do a whole tuneup on your car. They are nice people, some of the stuff is expensive. They shouldn't charge prices that people cannot afford.
