I have always had excellent service at The Car Shop. Brian fixes it right the first time and is honest about telling me things that may need to be done in the future. No pressure to do unneeded repairs.

Brian is extremely knowledgeable and doesn t push to get repairs. He actually lets people know when repairs aren t immediate concerns, but something to plan on eventually.

This company is wonderful. Every time I go there they give me what I need and let me know if there is anything that I should be concerned about. If I am not flush with cash at that moment they give me a timeline to work with on how long the repair can wait so I can save for it in my budget. Very glad I found them.
