Very honest and forthright; no pressure.

The work was done on time, at a very reasonable cost. Super friendly customer service reps who know their stuff. They establish a personal relationship and work hard to maintain it.

For nearly 40 years I've been a customer of Rising Sun. RS always gets the highest grades for the quality of work and informing its customers.

Rising Sun provides excellent customer service. My 2001 Honda CRV has been experiencing a host of unusual problems. The mechanics at Rising Sun have been dedicated to figuring out the problem(s). They are very willing to go the extra mile and have kept my Honda at the shop for days in order to replicate the problems. I also have my Subaru serviced at Rising Sun and have been very pleased with the results. Rising Sun has been very honest about what truly needs to be repaired and what can wait. Some auto repair shops are constantly trying to upsell; you take your car in for an oil change and they "find" something "wrong." Rising Sun does not do that. They address the real problems and alert you to potential future problems, if any, but with no pressure to agree to extra work. The mechanics are very communicative and often call with updates and/or additional questions. As a customer, I feel valued and respected.

Rising Sun Motors has serviced our family's two vehicles for the past 20 years. The last van service was exceptional as always. They not only do the regular service but trouble shoot, drive the vehicle and make any recommendations. I trust them and never have to worry that they will steer me wrong.

As always, a pleasant experience.

I depend on Rising Sun for expert advice on my cars. I have been driving a 98 Camry since it was new -- and after my warranty ran out I have been using Rising Sun for service and evaluation. I am up to 310,000 miles and the car still drives great. Things are wearing out, and I have been depending on Rising Sun for advice on repair needs and cost. I may eventually give up on the Camry -- but until then I will use them for needed repairs. My last visit was to evaluate a "Check Engine" light and muffler noise. They gave me an evaluation and an estimate of the cost.

Friendly and knowledgeable front office staff; not condescending to inexpert or 'lady' drivers. Will break down recommended repairs into 'must do now' and 'it can wait a bit' categories, which helps me with budgeting. It's very helpful to be able to make an appointment, and generally repairs are finished within the estimated time frame. I have no plans to go anywhere else.

I can always count on them to give me honest and accurate feedback. They do the work that needs to be done and don't try to nickel and dime you on repairs.

I came in for a 30k factory service on a Prius. Was given a price at the desk of over $900. Upon questioning and asking only to do the service as stated in the owner's manual still had to pay over $500.
