Well I did recommend them to a friend and they did not get very good service. As a matter of fact, they left the cap off the engine oil in a Mercedes and that person had smoke and oil everywhere.

They have given good information and estimates on which I can make decisions regarding repairs and most of the time it is what they say it would be. If they find something else, I am always informed in advance for any decision. They are very friendly and reliable and they certainly know what they are doing. I am very comfortable with the service and atmosphere at Benchmark.

Excellent service, quick turnaround, and honest feedback on what needs to be done vs. what could be done.

He does good work, but with some of the stuff you have to be careful and shop around a bit. Some special things he is not as well priced as the dealer. It isn't about the quality. It's about pricing issues.

They were very helpful and didn't make me feel like I needed to fix it. They told me it wasn't worth fixing it.

They were good and honest with the estimate. They trouble shot my rig, told me exactly what was wrong, and how much it would cost and that's how much it cost.
