Their service and their relationship with their customers is absolutely great. I could maybe find a place that is a bit less expensive. However I would rather stay with the guys I know, and who I know will do only what is needed and go it just right.

Shaun H. is the best mechanic I have ever known!!!

Good service and they seem concerned about my pocketbook.

by - Verified Customer July 09, 2015

In July had oil changed at Auto Shop, my automotive service facility for 30 years. The technician did not insert a Honda washer when replacing the drain plug. That led to an oil leak and I returned to Auto Shop and they correctly installed the plug and replaced the lost oil at no cost. On 11/10/15, I returned for routine Service and the technician and service manager noticed a hairline crack in the oil pan. No oil was leaking, but they brought it to my attention. A new oil pan was ordered and installed at no cost to me, but $600+ cost to the Auto Shop in part and installation and oil. The Auto Shop stands behind their work completely.
