I didn't have an appointment and brought my car to check the brakes. He checked them, called me and completed the job within a couple hours.

I brought my 2007 Honda Accord to James Presta Auto to get the car ready to hand off to my daughter so wanted it to be safe and reliable. I asked James to give me an overall estimate on things he would recommend to do in order to make it Safe and Reliable. He did that and performed the work to my satisfaction. The guys there at James Presta Auto are first rate. Highly Recommend!!

Good work.

James goes out of his way to make sure my vehicle is fixed and safe. James came to my house to see what was wrong with my truck the night before I had to have it towed to his shop. He discovered the AAA person that was there was not testing my battery the right way. He is a great person that I fully trust!

Everyone very friendly. James is honest. He will not do work that does not need to be done.

by - Verified Customer March 03, 2016

I had a tire that popped, so I came in for a replacement. I needed a low-pro tire, and a lot of places don't carry them. I've also been there before for an oil change. When I went to the dealership they quoted me a ridiculous price, but they changed my oil for 1/3 of that price.
