They got us in quickly, right on time with our appointment and the price was reasonable.

I have already recommended them. Pat is very knowledgeable and explains everything in detail. Even with the regulator problem, he didn't talk at me like I was a girl like other mechanics do.

I scheduled a appointment, when I was done they charged me sixty dollars abd that's way over priced. Also the guy I talked to was very short with me.

by - Verified Customer July 03, 2014

They are courteous, and helpful by working with me and waiting until I had money to pay without charging me storage fees. I live thirty miles away, and he helped with rides.

My husband is handicapped. If anything is needed extra they do it for him. A jeep and a truck we take it to them. Their work is very good and take our statement to the Auto Club, and everything is fine. Everything is always positive.
