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.

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.

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.

I was initially referred to them by my son-in-law. I've since recommended many people to go there, and I've going there myself for years now. Everything is always fine, I've had no problems with the work there. They even helped me to price a car that I was trying to sell, and the first person who looked at the car bought it at the estimate they recommended.

by October 25, 2015

Service and attitude were good.
