Personalized service. Go above and beyond what is expected - somehow, they find a way to do it at or under estimate. Stand by their work.

Verified CustomerMay 08, 2015

The are honest and have integrity.

Verified CustomerApril 22, 2015

Requested repair work was completed satisfactorily and at a fair price. Extra charges were made however, for work completed but not requested or approved (light bulb), and for "shop supplies".

Verified CustomerApril 03, 2015

Mostly, these guys go out of their way to be nice but when they couldn't find the right part for my car -- and were searching -- I had a hard time getting them to call back. Then, when I got a second (and third) opinion, I found that they were estimating the wrong part and estimating too high. When I finally got the service done by another shop, I found that when they had replaced parts while doing an oil change, the parts were cheap. But...I really like these guys and I don't think they were trying to cheat me.

Verified CustomerMarch 23, 2015

Friendly, prompt service that is always reliable.
