I trust them and have known them for 13 years. I like the affordability. They cover everything.

by - Verified Customer December 27, 2015

The pricing was slightly higher than expected.

by - Verified Customer December 21, 2015

The quality of service was good, and they are very friendly. I always like to go to smaller, independently owned places, since I own my own business.

by - Verified Customer December 19, 2015

I only had one experience there so I'm not sure if I can give that much information. They had good customer service and are pleasant to deal with. They did what I asked them to do and didn't over step their bounds and the was reasonable.

by - Verified Customer December 15, 2015

They seemed to be very honest and forthwith when they tell you what's wrong with your car. They are very convenient, if something needs to be done and it doesn't necessarily need to be done right away then they tell you. They don't push different things on you.

by - Verified Customer December 15, 2015

They do great work. I go there for all scheduled maintenance and they know me by name.

by - Verified Customer December 13, 2015

They were very helpful, nice and did everything they could to help me.

by December 13, 2015

We feel he is looking out for our best interest and we respect that. If there isn't a problem he is honest with us about that as well.

by - Verified Customer December 12, 2015

I have gone there for years and I trust them they have repaired many vehicles for me.

by - Verified Customer December 10, 2015

It was fairly priced, they were nice people and the shop was nice as well.

by - Verified Customer December 04, 2015

I was very happy with the service. They are always friendly, and what they promise they always provide. The prices were reasonable, and the service was outstanding.

by - Verified Customer December 02, 2015

I have been taking my car there for a number of years they always do a good job. They always explain themselves very well and the price is always fair and I can trust them.

by - Verified Customer November 26, 2015

They are just very helpful and knowledgeable they get to the problem quick and offer a fair price of good service.

by - Verified Customer November 25, 2015

I had a hole in my tire, so I took it in and they plugged it. But, then they refused to put the tire on the truck because it was a bad tire. Even though they wouldn't put the tire on, they still charged me $15, so I had to go buy a new tire. It just didn't seem like very good customer service to me. I've been taking my vehcile to Terry's since 1987, and all that time I've never had a problem until now.

by November 24, 2015

I have found them to be reliable, prompt and honest. They have never recommended thing's that don't need to be done and I have just been satisfied in every way with their service and their timing in doing thing's.

I take all of my vehicles over there and I have recommended them to all my friends. Their service is quick and they don't try and overcharge me. There are so many reason I keep going back.

by November 18, 2015

I have had my service there for years.

by - Verified Customer November 15, 2015

Terry, the owner, immediately helped me me and fixed my car. He was able to tell me exactly what the problem was, and he gave me prices for what it was going to cost me. He gave me a very low price for what needed to be done. He told me that it would take about an hour, and when the car was ready he went someone to pick me up.

by November 13, 2015

I think it's okay. They were just a little slow.

by - Verified Customer November 11, 2015

They did a good job. They were quick and figured out the problem.

by - Verified Customer November 10, 2015

They are always quick, reliable and efficient I have not had any problems so far. The people there are always friendly and answer all my questions.

by - Verified Customer November 04, 2015

I take my car there all the time, and they have proven to be honest. Many times I thought there was something worse with the car then there really was, and they always tell me the truth.

by - Verified Customer October 30, 2015

It was a good experience, but it's a small place so it can take awhile.

by - Verified Customer October 29, 2015

They were very thorough, I just went there for an oil change and it was fine.

by October 27, 2015

I have done business with them for years, and they have always been very helpful to me. They have always been very fair.

Question Answered by Terry's Automotive and Qwik Lube
the engine will spit and sputter at 4000 R...
Electrical smell may have been a fan motor burning up, blowing radiator cap off could be overheating. But that's all guessing without looking at the car
