very thorough inspection. Car ran perfectly when returned to me. Very satisfied.

I have known David Anker for many, many years but that is not why I get such excellent service. Dave is one of the most honest and professional people I have ever known and it shows in the quality of the work that is performed by his establishment. I enjoy making minor repairs to my automobiles but when I have a big job that must be done right, Anker's is the only place I will trust to do the work the way I would.

I'll be back.

Excellent Customer Service.

I was convinced my head gasket was gone and brought it to these honest folks to be pleasantly surprised that it was not and was a simple fix! 200 $ VS 1800$!
Thanks so much for always being reliable and trustworthy!

Anker's Auto really takes great care of their customers. I've been there twice now and each time I called last minute, they took my car right in and it was ready fairly quickly. The guys are so nice and patient. They take the time to hear you out and then carefully explain to you what is wrong with your vehicle and explain what work will be done. After your service they even send you coupons and other incentives to thank you for being a customer. I highly recommend this auto shop, they are very trustworthy and charge fair prices.

I will only trust Ankers with my vehicle! Excellent service!!!

We are new to the area and I went to Anker's based on the Google and Yelp reviews. They were all true. The attention to detail and feeling of being taken care of was top notch. I love supporting small business and this is one I will be back to again and again.

Been going there for decades. They've always been terrific.

Great people, trust them.

Excellent. I felt bad having him hold the parts for almost a week until my schedule freed up to drop the vehicle off.

This was actually my most disappointing shop visit. I showed up at 7 minutes after five PM and no one was around, and that has not happened to me before in my many years of bringing my cars to Ankers. There's always been someone there for pick up. I had to make special arrangements to get my car and it ruined Valentine's Day dinner plans. You should call client's if there car is still awaiting pickup near closing to see if they need them or are on their way. I would have called, but as I've said, in the dozens of prior visits, I've never seen a hard close at 5 PM.

Anker's has always done great maintenance or repair work, whether it was a 1996 sedan or my 2013 hatchback! I always trust that they'll do a good job.

We've been using Anker auto service since 1983 and we have been totally satisfied with his performance and that's why we're still there.

They do the repair as affordable as possible. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries for them to get it right, but they try with the least expenses and they are always fair with the customer. In a few cases they've stayed late to get it done, so overall very pleased with the service.

This repair shop is very trustworthy. I trust them and they don't pressure you into doing things that don't need done. They make you very aware and give you time when there is a major repair, that way your not surprised when you get there. They are just very nice.

My cousin next door referred me to them, and I was impressed that they knew what they were doing. They were knowledgeable, the prices were right, and it didn't take all day. It was my first time and I will be definitely go back and recommend them.
