They were very helpful, and they took the time to explain and go over things with me.
Everything went smooth and the price was right.
I had no problems, it was great service.
Matt, the head mechanic, does a great job. I've been very every time I've taken my vehicle there. They're also fair on the price.
Making appointments is easy, they are good at diagnostics, and they clearly state the price of expected repairs. They were prompt, polite, and courteous. They are a local establishment, and I prefer spending my money locally.
I already recommended them to my friends and family. I really like the way they service my car, the fees are very reasonable, and they provided transportation to and from work while my car was serviced.
I think the prices were reasonable and they were very thorough explaining the repairs and possible alternatives.
They got me and my truck in there pretty quick, they got it taken care of, and they are nice and easy people to work with.
They got me in right away, and were able to solve all the problems that I had. I had taken it to other shops first, and they were not able to fix the problem.
They were good.
I do all of my business the with Matthew, the owner of the shop. He goes out of his way to help me any time that I need it. I don't even like to let other people mess around with my truck anymore. he know's what he's doing, and he's an honest person. Just recently I spent two grand on work on my truck, and he made every penny of that money worth it.
They are convenient, and they've treated me fairly every time time that I've been there.
They have great customer service.
They were just very quick with the service.
I have had many problems and they always do what they said they were going to do.
