The service took over twenty four hours which was a lot longer than expected. Then they had to order a part, I won't be going back to them.

They have friendly service, good communication and they have very competitive pricing.

They are helpful, every time I have gone there they drive me back to work and I didn't have to schedule anything around my appointment.

by - Verified Customer February 21, 2015

I think the few times I've been there, I have gotten what I need. I have been pleased with everything they have done so far.

They did a good job. It was pretty good. I can't say I have any complaints. There was a little time constraints, but they got that fixed. They do appointment only.

They are personable people, they are customer focused and they do good work.

Well they have misdiagnosed about 3 of my problems. Three of them I had to bring back because the parts were broken. We had some suspension work done and my wife was driving and the wheel came off. The next time they diagnosed the problem and I ended up with a catalytic converter that I didn't need. I will never use them.

They have really good service, they do exactly what I expect them to.

by - Verified Customer January 27, 2015

They are very professional. They don't try to high pressure sell you like a lot of the other places in town. A lot of other places in town will do the hard pressure sell because you are a woman. They are just very professional.

Sounds like your alternator could be going out, or could simply be a older battery either way you have a charging system issue with the hard to start. The blinker randomly blinking fast is most likely due to a bad connection in the bulb socket.
