I felt the staff was respectful and considerate. I asked for a full review of everything and an itemized receipt, and then the staff went through everything

My car's problem was diagnosed and repaired within the time frame promised, and the quoted cost was exactly what I was charged. Staff were all courteous and knowledgeable. I am very likely to come back again.

I felt confident that I took my car to the right place. My car was fixed, however, it has a little rumble now but not bad enough to complain about. I felt the price was outrageous but since the car was towed to the shop I didn't have any affordable option with other shops. I paid too much. Parts where marked up high.

This place has very knowledgeable mechanics. I have an old Jaguar XJR which had a leak. Presumably it was coming from the transmission. I have been to a couple of other shops before Tolima s where I was told to go to a transmission place a have it overhauled. Turned out the reason for the leak was a transmission plug adapter and engine mounts. The guys replaced this stuff for me and now everything is awesome! If you need professional mechanics who know their trade, Tolima s is a place to go.
