We appreciate that we were able to get service much faster with you. Everyone was very kind and helpful. We had to return the car after the work was done because it was leaking transmission fluid from were the seals were replaced. We had to bring our car back to have the seals replaced again. We haven t had enough time to see if this will correct the problem. Only time will tell.

Love the concept, tried the shop that agreed to cost & they were absolutely phenomenal in every way..thorough, honest, informative but not pressuring, Extremely detailed pics and descriptions of items wrong with my vehicle prioritized, itemized, hard copies and online.. just unheard of the skill of vehicle repair paired with communication technology of current times..
