I have to admit, I was apprehensive about the shop having a new owner with a new crew, but I was put at ease with their professionalism and reasonable pricing. Thank you!

When I called for an appointment, they were very helpful. I was able to get my car in for an oil change right away. I was in no hurry but the car was completed in a few hours. I am very pleased with the work and what they checked that I didn't ask for. I will return.

The didn't do all the service that was paid for and what was completed was done poorly. They only did one sway bar bushing, not both even though both were paid for. One motor mount was installed backward causing it to wear into the transmission and the brake line was reinstalled with a big kink in it. We were lucky that didn't snap. We were blamed saying we rushed them and that is why both bushings weren't done. They said we were told to bring it back in. Yes, we became anxious after repeated promises if when it would be done was broken. However, they NEVER told us to bring it back. They also tried to say the motor mount was defective and that is absolutely not true according to the mechanic that told me the bad work they did. They also recommended shocks struts and inner and outer tie rods with an allignment but NONE of that work needed to be done according to my more qualified mechanic. I would highly recommend a different mechanic.
