Tried to get an uber inspection, said my brakes were low and pulsating. Neither were true after knowing how my car brakes feel and taking a look at every brake pad to find out they were almost brand new. Waste of $25

I was very happy with the customer service and the work as well. Work was completed on my f-150 on time. I'll go back.

They took an interest in repairing my car. They were willing to cooperate with me until the intermittent problem could be verified.

I really appreciated that they took care of my car right then, as I hadn't made an appointment. It was the sudden start of a check engine light as I was beginning a short trip into town that prompted me to come in unannounced.

Friendly shop, personable owner. Service was prompt and pleasant. I do much of my own work on my vehicles, but feel I can trust Jeff and his shop with the work that is beyond my ability or that I don't have the time for. I'll be back.

Really happy with my whole experience with this shop. Happy to of found them on Repairpal. They installed a new Air Conditioner, new rotors and brakes on my 04' Honda Accord.
I'll be back for all my car care needs.

Excellent service.

by - Verified Customer April 24, 2017

Able to diagnose the problem, which I thought was making the car unsafe to drive. Able to reassure me the car was safe to drive and did a temporary fix and ordered the piece needed to repair the car permanently..

Jamie in the office was so friendly and explained exactly what was done and answered all my questions well! My experience at A&T was excellent! I am confident that this is a shop that won't overcharge or mess up my car!

Friendly and fast service. Perhaps a little oil left on the block after oil change accounts for a burning oil odor? But I'm not sure about that.

Awesome experience. Coolant leak noticed later on a Thursday afternoon. Got the truck in and was diagnosed, parts ordered, and repaired by Friday afternoon. Couldn't believe it. A little expensive, but not by any means A&T's fault (I'll blame Ford for that one)!

These guys are great! They've worked on two of my vehicles. during my last experience, they did one of the kindest things I've ever seen from an auto shop. After many hours of troubleshooting they determined that my vehicle needed an expensive repair that was far more than I was willing to spend, as the car was old and not worth the investment. Knowing how much time they spent troubleshooting, I was more than happy to pay them a diagnostic fee but when we arrived to pick up the vehicle, they said they were not going to charge us at all. They were more than justified to charge us a diagnostic fee but they didn't, simply out of kindness. I will definitely continue bringing my vehicles to them!

Jeff, as always, was very helpful in clearly explaining the issues with my car and fixing the danged thing in a timely manner. He also displayed epic patience while answering my questions regarding other cars to purchase to replace my current one-- before I take it out and shoot it, drive it off a cliff or blow it up.
