I am a regular customer with three cars serviced. The employees are respectful and professional and usually, I am completely satisfied with the services. This time the car was not repaired correctly and it had to stay another day. I was not offered a discount or any other consideration for the inconvenience caused because it was the shops fault. This would be the first time I have to say I was not satisfied.

I had a very pleasant experience with my oil change, exceeded expectations. Schedule a return trip the next day to replace two filters the work took 5 min and labor costs were over $60.
