I brought it in for an intermittent issue. They couldn't find anything. They only charged me for the time that they were trying to troubleshoot the issue. They did a very good job.

It went well. They were patient with me as far as waiting for me to put the money together to pay for the service. They even charged me half price. They are really nice and helpful. They also gave me good advice on how I should take care of my car.

It was an oil change and there was little concern with the headlights not pointing the right way. They fixed the problem quickly. I am a very big fan.

They were really helpful, explained what needed to be done, and didn't do anything until I gave the word so that was really nice of them to do. They are straight forward.
