I really appreciate the professionalism exhibited by all the employees that I spoke to. No complaints.


I went in for a basic oil change and filter. Picked up the car and was told the hood chrome trim broke loose. They tried to glue the trim back on, and a very poor job at that. This car is a 2012 and not a beater, so I am now having to replace the part.


Terry checked me in quickly and within a couple of minutes the service started then was completed quickly. Great shop for auto service.


Rick's Automotive has helped us with my son (a student at a local university) and his car. Being away from home, it's not always easy for him to find good, reliable, trustworthy service providers. As his car has required multiple repairs over time, we were lucky to find Rick's Automotive. Rick's has been very responsive, helpful, and accurate in their estimates and repairs. They truly understand how college kids sometimes need help with cars and they have been very upfront and honest about the amount of repair work needed and our budget. This has been a great relief to me and my wife. We trust Rick's Automotive.


The folks at Rick's are always very helpful.
