Ray&Dana's is the best! They put you and your car 1st. The ONLY repair shop I'll have work on my car.

The shop is very clean and the people were very nice and helpful when I had a problem with my car. They are very professional and they have a 2yr warranty which is great.

Verified CustomerFebruary 16, 2013

For over 30+ years, my family has had the luxury of having Ray & Dana?s in our town. In a day and age where so many places are only after your money, Ray & Dana?s will always put the customers? best interest first. I believe that they operate by the understanding that if you treat people right and take care of them, they will be back. It has worked for us! Although there are plenty of others around, there is only one trustworthy, reliable and classy auto care we will go to.

Verified CustomerFebruary 16, 2013

One of the best around.

May 15, 2015

I had to hit a star to send message, but really wanted to leave them blank!!! I wasn't able to get a quote over the phone so they just lost a potential customer. I found them on this site as a recommended repair shop, and also had a verbal recommendation to call them, but after explaining my situation was not able to get an approximate price over the phone!! Terrible customer service policy!!! They should state this on their site here that the car needs to be driven or towed to their location for FREE ESTIMATES!!!
