Getting taken advantage of by larger dealers really leaves a bad taste in your mouth; I want to be told the truth. Be given a fair and honest deal and walk away feeling great about my car and how it runs. Joe Buss took great care of it all and he'll be my #1 now for any auto repair or that for my kids cars.

I had an engine belt go out on me on my way to work. Fortunately, I wasn't far from Buss so I drove straight there. I assumed I would miss at least part of the workday, if not more, and was scrambling to figure out who would be available to come get me and drive me around. To my surprise and great delight, the Buss folks arranged to get me to work and ON TIME! They then got my car repaired, picked me up after work, and the total cost of all it it was only about $100. They really came through for me and I am VERY grateful.

Everything satisfactory, and really appreciated the loaner car and staff helpfulness & friendliness. My only complaints.... I didn't get a call back as promised when wanting to schedule a repair, and was double charged for a repair and after 2 calls still have not been issued the credit not received a call back regarding that mistake and correcting it.

by - Verified Customer March 23, 2017

Always a pleasure bringing my car in to Joe's. He and his crew are always so knowledgeable, so pleasant, so helpful. He even sent help across town once when my car had died.

Although no leak in my A/C was located the system was charged w/dye added as a hedge against finding a leak, if any, later.

I really appreciate identifying past repairs so that I am not duplicating anything or getting unnecessary work done.

On my last visit, I identified the backup sensor as an issue. When I picked up the vehicle I was told the issue was resolved, but I still have the same warning light coming on.

by - Verified Customer January 02, 2017

Buss always does great work and I know they are being fair and honest with me. My most recent experience proved this because they ended up not replacing parts I thought needed to be replaced saving me $100s. I really appreciate the service I get from Buss and will definitely keep going back.
