Very pleased overall with the promptness, quality of work, and the efficiency. The waiting room was comfortable and clean. I was only visiting in Columbus when I had the repair done but would certainly use C.A.R.S. on future visits if necessary.

Although I am very pleased with the service, I got there 2 minutes late, I could hear someone BSing in the other room, but I waited 5 minutes for someone to greet me, another 5 minutes for the right guy to come get my key.
