I dealt with the owner, very efficient, nice, knowledgeable, and I had a car to be passed inspection. He told me what I had to do to pass inspection, which is all I needed to know to do.

I went in there with no air conditioning, on my Volvo, I came back an hour later and the thing was running, they recharged it and everything was okay.

It was quick and easy. No hoops to jump through. I only had one thing fixed so it didn't take that long, the part came in that day and they fixed it that day. The guy who runs the front desk was helpful and nice, James was his name.

by - Verified Customer April 05, 2015

I am very satisfied. They do what I ask them to, nothing more. They are very friendly and competent.

I think it is too expensive. I know another place is cheaper than that. Maybe I recommend but not to recommend the transmission, the people are nice, but too expensive. I think it is okay.

by - Verified Customer April 01, 2015

They do good work, they are pretty quick and they explain all of the work they do.

The service is amazing. James is accommodating as can be and helpful. I am single and taking a car is scary, whether they will try to pull something on you. I think he is extremely honest, and does the best that he can for his customers. I am really pleased that I found him. It has been two years, never a problem.

by - Verified Customer March 29, 2015

They are very efficient, they are fair, honest and they never try to take advantage of you. They do a good job at whatever is wrong with my car. I like how they send coupons for discount work and they are very willing to do the work on time.

They did the work well, they explain everything and they guarantee their work.

by - Verified Customer November 23, 2014

My car was there for a month. I got it back and I took it back two weeks later and it is still there at this time. The first time was because of the engine light. The second time they had to change some parts because it was shaking and it will have been there a week on Monday.

The prices are one thing but then the real price is higher. The service was great and they are friendly and it all went well. I didn't get a written estimate before it happened. I was quoted something on the phone and then when I went there I paid more than I expected.

by - Verified Customer November 20, 2014

I always got good service from them, I moved recently so now I don't know if the service will be the same.

They did the work we wanted but it took them a while, and it seems there are still some issues going on with our transmission.

I bought my car three months ago and I took it to them to have it looked at, they said they weren't going to charge me to put it on the lift but it still cost me 150 dollars. I took the parts they said were bad to the dealer and they said that there was nothing wrong with them, I went back to the shop and they said they were going to charge me a 40 dollar test drive fee, 50 dollars to throw away the junk that was in the trunk and 25 dollars to change some light bulbs. I think they take advantage of women because we don't know that much about cars.

I went in to get an inspection, and they said it needed 800 dollars worth of work so I went in and had the work done and it cost me 1200 dollars. 3 weeks later my head gasket blew so now I am paying on a loan for a car I no longer have.

by - Verified Customer November 10, 2014

I had a major transmission issue and instead of giving me a four thousand dollar estimate for the work they informed me of a silent recall that the dealer did. They found that my transmission was under warranty and they were able to get me a brand new transmission for free.
