I had a check engine light on for 3 days and neither pepboys or advance auto to determine what the problem. As soon as I took it to Ahrens, they found the problem was an O2 sensor. I replaced it myself and then discovered problem was still not corrected. I took it back the next day and they told me it was the OCV valve. Replaced it that same day and problem solved.

This shop did all the repairs requested on my vintage Honda Civic coupe; it's not a pretty place, but they get the work done at a very fair price. I've taken my cars here for several years and am always glad I have. I was told I could have the car back late the same day, but it took another full day...had to order the part.
