He is a nice guy. The service was good. The price was reasonable. They gave me a discount.

My ignition switch broke and I called AAA. They sent Mike's towing. I was going to have him tow me to a Dodge dealer up the road. He said that we have a repair shop and we can fix it faster and cheaper than they can. It took them about a week because they got the wrong parts. I picked it up and paid the bill. I pulled it into my car port and I noticed the steering wheel didn't lock anymore. I found out that they charged me 40 dollars for a part that they didn't replace. He gave me a refund for that. A few days later, I went to a different auto repair place. He pulled it apart and he said that the mechanism that locks the steering wheel was physically broken. I have no proof that they physically broke it. Because of that I will never go back there and I will not recommend them.

They serviced the car about 10 days ago. I had trouble with the fuel flow. I took it in and it just happened again They put a new fuel pump on it.

I was treated well and they seemed to know their stuff. So far it's holding up. He fixed my air conditioning. It hasn't gone out yet, but he thought it might at some point.

I had to take my Mustang there for a tune up, the motor was not running properly. It runs perfectly now. I would take my car back to have more work done and I would recommend them.

It was excellent. I had brought my car in and they told me some additional stuff that was wrong with my car. They are very honest. I had stopped in at another time and the mechanic was very nice. I'm very impressed that they are ASE certified because of past experiences at other shops. Mike is very kind and understanding, I have had my vehicles towed there several times.
