Almost a decade as a completely satisfied customer. Scott and his team are the best.

by - Verified Customer December 11, 2017

Scott and the team at Benchmark Automotive are hands down, the best automotive repair experience I've ever had. Scott allows you to drop off your car and leave a key in the slot, and provides intake forms to fill out after hours. I took a Honda Pilot that hadn't been driven in 2 years - had no idea how many problems might have piled up. He found it just needed a tune up, and standard services and gave me a quote that was more than reasonable. I know I can trust him with all our cars. We also needed a detailer and he knew someone, and can make the arrangements for it to occur at his facility.

Many thanks to Scott and his team at Benchmark.

Quality work, fair price and I trust them!

Well I did recommend them to a friend and they did not get very good service. As a matter of fact, they left the cap off the engine oil in a Mercedes and that person had smoke and oil everywhere.

I was able to get an appointment in a timely fashion and the service was great.

I wasn't unbelievably thrilled, but I was satisfied and would take my truck back there.

by April 25, 2013

They are great guys. They work great together and they are quick and knowledgeable.

by April 24, 2013

I like that they're straight-forward. I have been there several times and they are good. I know them, they know me, and that is why I go there.

Feel like I can really trust them. They show me failed parts. They take the time to explain my options. Always friendly. Never pressure and they call when they are done with the service.

by April 17, 2013

They have given good information and estimates on which I can make decisions regarding repairs and most of the time it is what they say it would be. If they find something else, I am always informed in advance for any decision. They are very friendly and reliable and they certainly know what they are doing. I am very comfortable with the service and atmosphere at Benchmark.

Excellent service, quick turnaround, and honest feedback on what needs to be done vs. what could be done.

by April 01, 2013

He does good work, but with some of the stuff you have to be careful and shop around a bit. Some special things he is not as well priced as the dealer. It isn't about the quality. It's about pricing issues.

by March 26, 2013

Good service and people I can talk to. They were able to talk to me coherently.

by March 14, 2013

I've had excellent service. I have always had work done that I needed and it has been timely.

by February 28, 2013

They were very helpful and didn't make me feel like I needed to fix it. They told me it wasn't worth fixing it.

by February 28, 2013

They were good and honest with the estimate. They trouble shot my rig, told me exactly what was wrong, and how much it would cost and that's how much it cost.

by February 28, 2013

Friendly -competent - fairly priced - locally owned by a guy who really likes cars. They've always done good work for us.
