Excellent customer service and excellent repair work done on my car. I was kept in the loop from the time I left my car at the repair shop, during the diagnostics, part acquisition, and repair needed. I am very happy with this shop and the mechanics. Everything was thoroughly explained and the car is working much, much better. I will definitely recommend this shop to anyone who needs car repair. USAA recommended this mechanic's shop and I can vouch that it was indeed a great recommendation. Thank you guys!

Expeditious service. Received what I asked for. They didn't 'find' something that needed to be replaced and pay extra for.

The whole experience was wonderful. They are very honest, I will highly recommend them to others. I also felt that they were very capable to handle whatever was needed. Completely trustworthy. Another company had tried to talk me into a service that was completely not needed on a fairly new car. They are truly master technicians. Please relay my thanks to all. They represent their profession well.

Craig is the best service tech I know that's why I take my vehicles to him.

The technician that worked on my daughter's car was very nice and respectful...the car required additional work in order to fix the original issue of not having heat....I just needed to get her car before the weekend. Overall, I was very satisfied with the work performed.

They are very honest and always kept me aware of what was going on with my vehicle.

by - Verified Customer February 17, 2016

The hours aren't very convenient. I lost confidence in them when my engine light was still on when I came to pick up the car. The mechanic seemed to think that since it wasn't a serious matter it was ok to drive it with the light on.

I believe that Craig and the team are quite knowledgeable and I appreciate the reports that they provide with work completed and recommended. There have been a few challenges with completion time expectations, but that appears to be the exception. There also appears to be an issue with the most recent repair, but I have not been able to get back to them about remediation.

Volkswagen did have trouble with door switches, unfortunately it is part of the door latch. It won't lock if the computer thinks one of the doors is open. It should be able to be tested with our scan tool.
