Jay is a class act.

by - Verified Customer February 08, 2017

I took my vehicle in for a check on a repair that was done last summer because I found an oil leak. Jay checked it and found the part had been defective. He immediately replaced the part free of charge and showed me what was done. He explained why there was a defect in the part.

First time customer. Great service

by - Verified Customer January 24, 2017

They treated me professionally and politely. They did not pressure you into making any repairs, just politely recommend items after inspecting the car. They are the only ones in Wausau that handle BMW.

They are higher priced than other local places. They extremely overcharged me for a battery replacement last time and the desk clerk talked non stop to me even when I ignored him and tried to read. They have repeatedly asked for extra services I didn't need. I won't go back ever again!

Bill was 100 bucks more than quote. Offered to make it right by fixing a different problem at a reduced price. Their diagnosis was wrong and couldn't fix the problem and still charged for second procedure.
