The owner provides excellent customer service and is a great people person.

Verified CustomerJuly 30, 2011

They actually stayed later to fix my oil leak that was covered under the warranty and if they didn't catch it then I would've gone over the 60,000 mile mark.

Verified CustomerJuly 28, 2011

Great coffee. Friendly, courteous, and they do great work.

It's a good shop and I would recommend them. They are very straight-up and tell you what needs to be fixed.

December 08, 2010

The best auto mechanic I've ever known - honest and fair. (I've recommended already to several friends who've since brought their business.)

December 05, 2010

I have been a customer of C&D for 10 years. I recommend people all the time when they talk about going to an honest and reliable auto shop.

November 24, 2010

My husband and I have been going to C & D Autocare for over 10 years. After having nightmare after nightmare with other auto service establishments, we found C & D to be a breath of fresh air. Dara knows us by name and gives us the attention that you would only expect from a small town business. He will alert you to problems he might find with your vehicle but he doesn't put uncomfortable pressure on you. Ultimately, the car owner has to take responsibility for keeping up to date on the maintenance of their vehicle and hopefully take the professional advice of the mechanic in a timely manner.

November 24, 2010

They do a very thorough job and they have excellent customer service. It is the only place we take our cars because we can trust them to be honest and they will do the best work.
