The Ahrens staff take very good care of their customers' cars. Beyond normal maintenance, they'll diagnose problems going on with your vehicle. I don't always get back as much communication from them as I'd like but the service is high quality.

I'm always confident that my car is ready for a long trip when I need one. I also get good general information about car maintenance, which I do not have a lot of familiarity with. Now I know what to expect from an aging car compared with a new car, which will help me decide when to stop making long trips with an old car, and when to get a new one.

by - Verified Customer September 19, 2017

Had work order form ready and parts needed when I dropped off the car. Parts and labor were completed promptly and my car was good as new when I picked it up.

by - Verified Customer September 18, 2017

Extremely courteous, quick service.

I had a taillight replaced and a mark buffed out. They were friendly, courteous and had great service.

by - Verified Customer July 19, 2017

Staff kept in contact over repair needs and even sent photos. Friendly, reasonable, and fast service. Will take by foreign vehicle there again.

by - Verified Customer June 28, 2017

I told the manager of the problems that I suspected the car to be having and asked him to have it checked over completely. Needless to say only what I mentioned to him was repaired and the other sounds and problems were not addressed nor brought to my attention.

by - Verified Customer June 25, 2017

Always awesome courteous service. The shop calls before doing any services to advise what they're doing and how much it will be.

by - Verified Customer May 24, 2017

Thorough, quick, and professional. I love Ahrens!

I like this garage and appreciate being able to wait, but I hope if I ever have a lengthy repair, I can use a loan car.
