The customer service was excellent and the service was fast and efficient, despite the age and lack of reliability of our car. I could not recommend the team more strongly.

*I have no prior affiliation or loyalty to this business. After several calls to other shops nearby, I called TCAC with an urgent request to have my truck looked at due to some noise it was making. It was urgent because I was scheduled to drive out of town the next day. I arrived at their shop at 3:30pm. They had a hunch it was the transfer case and confirmed it with running a couple of diagnostics within 20min. They explained to me my options based on my time constraint, all the while their busy schedule. They went above and beyond to get me on the road the next day. I dealt with Curtis and Rick(owner) and these guys were super friendly and professional. Before leaving the shop, they offered a courtesy follow up just to make sure everything was solid after my long road trip. I strongly recommend TCAC. They are honest, hardworking guys. Thanks again fellas for the solid customer service!
