The day that I picked up the car and I reached 30 miles and began having the check engine light come on. I had to take it back. I live like an hour away from the shop so it was very inconvenient for me. Then I took it home and I had another issue so I had to take it back on Monday. I paid a lot of money for it.

They first solved the problem I had with the vehicle, what it was. They showed me something on the computer what it was. The vehicle was done on time. They called me and did not start anything without authorization. I was walked through it a to z.
