Sean and Nicole are wonderful people. We have been going there for a few years now. This visit we had an oil leak fixed. Sean had a heck of a time getting parts free of oil but he didn't quit. I know he treats my vehicles as if they were his own.

Sean was great to deal with and went above and beyond to help us with a time sensitive repair.

by - Verified Customer March 20, 2017

I'm very picky when it comes to taking my car places. When I find a place I like and trust, I will stick with them. The previous place I used to go to has new ownership and I am no longer satisfied with my service there. Honesty and good service is very important to me and I feel like I no longer have that when taking my car in. I'm so happy i found this place though! I felt like the people were honest and did an excellent job on my repairs. They also did a good job and explaining everything to me in a way I could actually understand. Since I'm not great with cars, I really appreciate it. I will definitely be taking my car there from now on and, without any hesitation, be recommending this place to others.

I am extremely happy with Family Auto Care and will definitely be going back. Everyone was friendly and helpful and took the time to explain everything to me, and I am very happy with the quality and cost of work. I had to have air conditioning repairs and was very scared it would be more than I could afford. I felt that they were very thorough and honest and I was so relieved! I also like how they have shuttle service, and that they are family owned.

real friendly staff. honest with customer. does excellent work.

by - Verified Customer February 23, 2017

The car is not completly repaired. I was informed that the engine is operating normal and I'm getting check engine lights. Driving it for about 20 miles I got the first check engine light and sure enough had to bring it back. Turns out they forgot to plug the connectors that go to the o2 sensor. Go figure. Then over the weekend a misfire check engine light turned on. I really would have appreciated that they would at least check the engine prior to completing the repairs. They obviously rushed this work at the last second even after having the vehicle for 4 months.

I only wanted my front brakes done, and they wanted to replace my ENTIRE braking system, for $1400 because it will all "eventually need to get done"

I am in the Air Force and I needed to find somebody to trust to fix my fuel pump and with the help of my dad we found Family Auto Care and we were very satisfied with the price and the amount of personal customer service that we were given AND best of all they did the job right the 1st time. They explained everything and we were very happy with the job they did. I highly recommend them.
