The owner is honest and conservative with the work recommendations; always looking to explain fully what is being done and why. Even drew my wife a picture one time!

Repair was head gaskets, and there were unforeseen items that led to the vehicle not being completed on time. Great job done

I went in to have the capability added so I could start and lock/unlock my car via my cellphone. My experience was great and I trust the people at Action to do a wonderful job as always. I will definitely be back again.

They didn't really do anything. I had to go to a different place after. They are nice guys though. I had to pay more money because they didn't fix it right.

by - Verified Customer January 19, 2016

They get my car done quickly and efficiently for a good price. I know I can trust them with necessary work and they also suggest what I need to do next or what I might need to do. They are very close to my house. Very convenient. The last time I brought my car I had to drive it there. It is only like a mile away from my house. It is convenient because it is close.

I went to three different places and they did the job wrong. They found out what was wrong and fixed it. They were the only place who could figure it out including the dealer.
