They got to me really quickly and found the problem quickly. They are polite and helpful.

by - Verified Customer August 06, 2013

They did good work but promised things they couldn't deliver. They could offer me more for my money with all the things that were wrong.

by - Verified Customer July 23, 2013

Their service is awesome, they helped me out when I needed it.

by - Verified Customer July 23, 2013

They are very informative and helpful. They let me know what was wrong with the car before doing any work on it. They are nice people.

by - Verified Customer July 07, 2013

I was very pleased with their service. They did a speedy enough job, it only took a couple of hours.

by - Verified Customer July 07, 2013

The work was done very well. They did what they promised they would do and at the price they said.

by - Verified Customer July 07, 2013

They are nice people to work with. They get the work done and I don't have to worry about it.

by - Verified Customer July 07, 2013

They did a good job. They kept me informed with what needed to be done.

by - Verified Customer July 07, 2013

They were good and the service was quick. I went in for some warranty work and they took care of it. They were very pleasant and efficient.

by - Verified Customer June 18, 2013

I took my car there when I couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. And I'm a mechanic. They found the problem when I couldn't. They worked with me on the price. It was very reasonable. They're friendly too.

by - Verified Customer June 17, 2013

I went there twice. They gave really good service. They seemed to know what they was doing.

by - Verified Customer June 17, 2013

They are good at what they do and follow up with you. They have very good customer service.

by - Verified Customer June 05, 2013

They changed all my belts in my car and things started to happen after like the timing belt and other stuff going out and not working. I got a new starter, water pump, and new serpentine. Something loosened up in the end and the crank shaft started to go crazy.

by - Verified Customer June 02, 2013

I thought they did a great job. They replaced my brakes on my Toyota. Highly satisfied.

by May 06, 2013

I always go to Mark and he takes care of me.

by - Verified Customer May 06, 2013

They keep me in the loop the whole time. The repair they did is still working. They gave me different options to offer me different prices.

by - Verified Customer May 06, 2013

They don't charge you a lot.

by - Verified Customer May 06, 2013

The work was good, but the prices were more than I wanted to pay.

by - Verified Customer March 31, 2013

My car hasn't run well after this repair. They did an oil change and didn't reset the check engine light so somehow after I got my car all the lights on the dashboard were on. My car hasn't run right since. I went somewhere else to get it fixed. I wouldn't recommend them to anybody! DO NOT USE THIS MECHANIC!!

by - Verified Customer March 29, 2013

They were fast and efficient.

by - Verified Customer March 17, 2013

The people there are very nice to me. The work on my car is satisfactory. They completely re-did my car and you can never tell, looks like new. They always do a great job and give me good deals. They are very personal with everyone. They are the bees knees.

by - Verified Customer March 17, 2013

The guys there are friendly and nice. I'm a woman and they told me everything I needed to know and treated me well. They were extremely accommodating. They did a good job fixing my car.

by - Verified Customer March 17, 2013

They did what they promised they were going to do in a timely manner. They picked me up and offered transportation.

by - Verified Customer February 17, 2013

They are excellent. We don't take our cars anywhere else. They are excellent.

by - Verified Customer February 03, 2013

Their service is really good but they took longer than they said to fix it.

by - Verified Customer January 21, 2013

I did have to take something back, but they fixed it right away. They did a pretty good job and their rates were real reasonable, and you know, they gave personal attention to the problem.

by - Verified Customer January 21, 2013

They do a good job.

by - Verified Customer December 16, 2012

They were very helpful, extremely helpful. They found things that we did not look for. They were just very helpful.

by - Verified Customer December 02, 2012

They did the work I wanted them to do and did it well. I wanted them to repair the car and they did and I was satisfied.

by - Verified Customer November 25, 2012

Everything cost a lot more than I'd like to say. They take a little bit longer than I'd like for parts and stuff.

by - Verified Customer November 18, 2012

They are reliable. They answer the questions I ask about the car. They are honest too, I forgot my card and they called me right away. I'm satisfied with my car when they fix it.

by - Verified Customer November 18, 2012

They did a good job of getting it in, checking it out, and letting me know the next day. They did a great job, it just wasn't something to write home about. It was acceptable. It wasn't bad, it wasn't good, just not something that stood out in my mind.
