Brought to my attention that the rear brakes were bad. I appreciated that. Took longer to 'work me in' because I did not have an appointment. They are very courteous and keep a clean shop and the techs are dressed professionally. I will go back.

Tires were mounted & balanced well. Also, the mechanic explained that the new valve stems that the tire company recommended were not appropriate since car has pressure sensors.

by - Verified Customer February 16, 2017

Friendly and kept their word on price quoted to me. Didn't wait long to get oil changed. I would go back.

Thank you.

I am mostly satisfied with the work performed on my van, however now when my van is idling there's something under the hood that makes a loud rattling noise. It stops when I step on the accelerator, but it is somewhat embarrassing at stops bc it is so loud. That wasn't there prior to my van being worked on.

by - Verified Customer January 08, 2017

Very pleased with work done. Friendly people.

by - Verified Customer December 28, 2016

I had an oil change and it was done fairly quickly and a great price

by - Verified Customer December 20, 2016

nice people.

by - Verified Customer December 15, 2016

I was explained satisfactory why the extra work had to be done.

by - Verified Customer December 13, 2016

Dave was awesome to work with! Chris was ok too!

I took my Nissan Xterra after being a loyal Firestone customer for years. The xterra was recently purchased and took it to Firestone to routine maintenance. Since the initial routine maintenance my Xterra began what could have be coincidental or routine maintenance issues, however, after 6 months of monthly problems and over $2000 repair cost later, Firestone said they didn't know what was wrong with the cars idle problems.
I took it to Willies because it's a mile away from work, they provided a full assessment properly identifying the problems and had it ready same day by the close of my work day. When I picked up the Xterra, the mechanic came out and helped me understand the work done. Now, here is why I recommend them...after large expenses with Firestone, I couldn't afford all the repairs. The mechanic lowered the cost a bit, conducted a couple repairs on the house and made the car drivable until I am able to pay for additional minor repairs. I am thankful for their service will continue to recommend as opportunities arrive.

Good service

by - Verified Customer November 28, 2016

Friendly and kind employees. Repairs are explained completely. Very trustworthy shop.

by - Verified Customer November 18, 2016

Started at 830 am finally got done at 900 pm for a radiator. Part's weren't even order for 4 hrs and then it was the wrong part with no call. I had to call them and it was just a run around .

by - Verified Customer November 17, 2016

My car was given a diagnostic scan which discovered a number of problems. The estimate for all the repairs was approximately $2,000.00. I didn't get the repairs done and took the car to my old mechanic who had been out of town and he gave it a thorough inspection. The only things that was wrong was the need for replacement engine mounts and a new radiator car. I think Willie's needs a new diagnostic tool.

by - Verified Customer November 16, 2016

The service is good they have always been good to me anything goes wrong with my vehicle I take it there very pleased I get an email from them when it's time for it to be service yes I would recommend other people.

by - Verified Customer November 15, 2016

Dave was very helpful gave me an honest price for the work I needed done. Willies performed a timing belt / water pump change on my 2001 Honda Civic. They also replace the cam seal , they did have an issue with the initial install of the cam seal due to defective part. The tech stayed until 7 pm on a Friday night to ensure my car was fixed properly, without any additional cost to me.

by - Verified Customer September 12, 2016

The service exceeded my expectations!

by August 23, 2013

It was great service.

by - Verified Customer August 14, 2013

They replaced my air conditioner and it's still working and running great. My fuel pump went out two weeks later and had to get it replaced.

by - Verified Customer August 09, 2013

They do a very good job. They are very good at what they do. They are dependable, they do excellent work. We had a problem and they were closed and they came out and fixed it on their day off. That's how good they are.

by August 08, 2013

They got the job done. We had a question mark because of a sound coming from the car. I don't know how proactive they are and I don't know if we had a greater issues at that point. There might not be any issues, but what we did go in for they fixed. They are friendly and do a nice job. Nice people, and prices are reasonable.

by - Verified Customer August 08, 2013

They charge one price and then they charge another price, and I figure they want to overcharge me.

by - Verified Customer August 07, 2013

Their service is good and their prices are good. The establishment was very professional looking, it was clean.
