I called several repair shops before selecting Ackerman's. I chose them to do the work on my car because the gentleman who answered the phone was professional, courteous and informational. He didn't overstate potential problems without seeing my car like other places I called. He said they could take a look that same day and if it was what I thought it was they could have me in and out in about 4 hours. No other place would check my car for at least another 24 hours. My car was repaired that same day and saved me from stressing about it for another day! I'll definitely use them for my regular maintenance and repairs.

First time customer with a short list of minor repairs, all of which were taken care of correctly. I will return for future maintenance work for as along as I keep the car. Good job!

I just moved to the area and was looking for a shop that would work on my '82 Volvo 245 wagon. After calling around to a few shops, I got Bruce on the phone. He was happy to take my car in for a power steering leak issue, and successfully sourced a salvage part to fix the issue.

Very fast and always able to accommodate my schedule. My service ended up being extremely expensive due to a couple unexpected issues with the car. Not Ackerman's fault of course, but never fun to hear your car needs over $1,000 of work when you thought it'd be a basic tune-up.

I trust them to work on my Volvo.

Bruce has been servicing my cars for over 25 years. Without question the best mechanic I've ever dealt with. Trustworthy, thorough and detailed. I've never had to return because something wasn't to my satisfaction.
