Their work is 100% always reliable, and they are quick with getting you in for repair. They also never pressure you for added repairs (Other than what you came in for). Only problem I have noticed lately is it seems their prices have increased quite a bit. I have been coming here for approx. 7 years now, and my last 2 repairs were quoted prices rather higher than the going rate for private shops. Only when I negotiated the price and expressed my displeasure did they lower the rate to something much more comparable to other quotes. This was not the case 4 or 5 years ago. Original quotes were always very reasonable and in line with competitors, which is one of the reasons I loved coming here. you didn't feel like they were trying to get one over on you. On my last visit I was quoted a repair with the labor rate of $120/hour. This is dealership or marine mechanic pricing, and if I wanted to pay this I would take it to the dealer for repairs. But again, after discussion with them it was lowered to a manageable figure. Love the work they do and the service they provide, just wish they get back to more realistic quotes. In the age of the internet, material prices are far to easy to see to justify increased rates.
