I've been going there since I was fifteen. My whole family has been going there since I can remember.

They're quite good. They can diagnose the problem, get it done at a low cost, and in a timely matter, and they know what they're doing.

by - Verified Customer December 09, 2013

Basically I trust them not to do unneeded repairs.

by - Verified Customer December 07, 2013

Every time the car gets serviced it's taken car of properly. This past time my son took it to another place, Car-X I think, and they quoted him $300.00 more than what it usually is because they said things needed to be done that didn't. We went to speak with Joe Hood and he quoted us at 650.00, and when he fixed it I think the total was only 538.00 The first estimate was 800.00 from Car-X.

We have had good service there for years. They are honest and trustworthy. They always tell you what needs to be done to see if you want it done. He will come and pick you up and take you back. As far as the pricing goes, he is not cheap but better than dealers. It is worth paying a little more to get the good service. I would not be going there if I did not like him.

They did a good job, gave me my appointment, it was a little slow because of the day, but it was an extremely snowy day. They did it in a timely manner, I would expect them to finish a little quicker on a normal day.

by - Verified Customer December 03, 2013

I've been going there for 40 years. When I first moved here, I'd go get quotes from other people and they would price it with work and parts I didn't need, but not Joe. Joe is honest and was even voted one of the most honest businessmen in the Briton area.

by December 02, 2013

It was good, he came, he took the car, it's what we expected.

by - Verified Customer November 25, 2013

I have had service done there before. They're honest, they do good work, and give an honest assessment of work needing to be done.

by - Verified Customer November 24, 2013

We have gone to Hood's for 20 years. They're honest and don't fudge on the bill like other shops tend to, and they're typically 30-50% cheaper then most shops.

by - Verified Customer November 21, 2013

They had an opportunity to do some good and they stepped up. My wife hit a curb and I took it in and they called and told me that there was nothing wrong and that I didn't need the alignment done. They were very pleasant.

by - Verified Customer November 21, 2013

I think they are people of integrity that are very honest and I have a lot of confidence in them.

by - Verified Customer November 17, 2013

I've been going there for 15 years and every time we go we get excellent quality work.

by - Verified Customer November 15, 2013

They're honest, have reasonable prices and they try and help with pricing if they can, and I have been going there for 15 years and they're good people.

by - Verified Customer November 12, 2013

Joe is contentious and is very professional with the work they provide and his workers are top notch. I personally know he has done free work for people who really need it to be done.

They are fast and reliable. They fix all the company vehicles that I work with.

by - Verified Customer November 11, 2013

I feel that they were very helpful to us. We had a transmission problem. They towed the car in and found that it could not be fixed. They helped us sell our car. A friend recommended them and they helped him with belts that needed to be replaced. They were able to do it for less than what they thought it would originally cost.

by - Verified Customer November 10, 2013

They are very professional. They are very good at what they do. They are superb at their work. I have full confidence in them. They are the best there is.

by November 08, 2013

They are very cooperative and go out of their way to do what they say they will do. They are very trustworthy.
