Their prices are reasonable, they're honest, and take care of me. I can come and they accommodate me even if no appointment. I work down the street, they offer to drive me to work when I leave my car there. I love them, I definitely recommend them.

They tried to do more work than is necessary and as it turns out it was not necessary it was minor and I fixed it myself.

by July 27, 2014

It was the first time I went there and they were alright. We had to wait for an ordered part so it wasn't their fault.

by - Verified Customer July 27, 2014

They were recommended to me and others said they were a good place to go. Eric was very helpfull and professional with the amount of time he spent with me on the phone explaining the repairs needed.

by - Verified Customer July 24, 2014

I like the quality of care and they kept communicating with me through the repairs, asking me for approval. He is also convenient with getting me in when it's convenient for me and he offers rides.

by July 22, 2014

Been there several times, and had excellent service.

by - Verified Customer July 22, 2014

They're real honest, and reliable, they know what they are doing.

by - Verified Customer July 21, 2014

Well I always go to them because they always do a good job. They know how to work on my four classics and If they do something wrong he goes above and beyond to make it right.

by July 21, 2014

Good work, and honest people, fair price.

by July 21, 2014

They have good service and do great work. They always do what they say, very friendly and he always keeps me in the loop.

by - Verified Customer July 14, 2014

I found them to be a joy to go to and I will always go there.

by July 09, 2014

Good service, good people, nice facility, good reputation. Very professional. They have done a lot of work for me in the last few years.

by - Verified Customer July 02, 2014

It's to complicated to explain, I had to go to the dealership and 800 dollars later and I still have problems. I would not recommend them.

by July 02, 2014

I've been there many a times and have had good service every time I've been there. It is hard to trust people and I've had many different cars, every car I took there was taken care of. I didn't feel overcharged.

by - Verified Customer June 25, 2014

They gave good service and let me know what was going on with the work. His estimates were pretty close to the final price, but the prices were high.

They are honest, the work is done in a timely manner and they are very easy to work with. He shows you the broken parts and gives you a timeline of how long those parts should last.

by - Verified Customer June 18, 2014

I have had experience with them in the past, they did good work, I was very happy with them.

by - Verified Customer June 18, 2014

My price I got from Honda was one hundred and some dollars. It was outrageous. I called this phone number and it was forty dollars and it was a great price. Service was great, I didn't wait too long. People were friendly. The work is great and no problems. I'm satisfied with the work.

by June 17, 2014

The service is very good.

by - Verified Customer June 12, 2014

I have good great service, courteous, and very helpful. Exceptional.

by - Verified Customer June 11, 2014

They weren't bad but they weren't good they didn't even fix my Audi.

by - Verified Customer June 11, 2014

Treated like a king at the store, they did a good job. They are really fast and did it when they said it would be done.

by - Verified Customer June 09, 2014

They did an excellent job and they were on time. With them I never have to go back after they do work on my car.

by - Verified Customer June 08, 2014

They had excellent customer service, took me to and from work if I needed it, they were good at staying at the price, nice, pleasant, and I feel I can trust them. They are approachable, their personality is something I haven't seen in a car place before. I have never had problems with the same situation again, convenience to everything. Very centrally located.
