by - Verified Customer February 02, 2017

The owner is honest and conservative with the work recommendations; always looking to explain fully what is being done and why. Even drew my wife a picture one time!

by - Verified Customer January 26, 2017

Excellent work & very polite!!

by - Verified Customer January 12, 2017

Repair was head gaskets, and there were unforeseen items that led to the vehicle not being completed on time. Great job done

by - Verified Customer January 05, 2017

I went in to have the capability added so I could start and lock/unlock my car via my cellphone. My experience was great and I trust the people at Action to do a wonderful job as always. I will definitely be back again.

I was very happy with the work they did. It seems to be a very trustworthy place to go.

by - Verified Customer January 19, 2016

They didn't really do anything. I had to go to a different place after. They are nice guys though. I had to pay more money because they didn't fix it right.

by - Verified Customer January 18, 2016

They get my car done quickly and efficiently for a good price. I know I can trust them with necessary work and they also suggest what I need to do next or what I might need to do. They are very close to my house. Very convenient. The last time I brought my car I had to drive it there. It is only like a mile away from my house. It is convenient because it is close.

by - Verified Customer January 10, 2016

The service was not that great. When I asked them questions they just danced around it.

you might want to have the starter checked out. If you have someone who can turn the key to start and you can tap the starter it might start, however the starter will need to be replaced.
