Mark is an amazing shop owner. He explained everything and even saved me over $200.00 vs. What the dealership wanted to charge me. My side mirror looks like new and it only took an hour to complete the job. He informed me of when the piece got there and was able to salvage some pieces from my factory side mirror. Thanks, Mark!

The owner/mechanic is very knowledgeable and saved me a lot of money by diagnosing my car correctly. I had it in another shop prior to taking it here and it was misdiagnosed.

by - Verified Customer October 18, 2017

It's always a good experience to take my car there and I feel comfortable that the pricing is fair.

Mark the owner has always treated me and my sister like family. Even though his shop is pretty far from where I live I wouldn't go anywhere else. Extremely recommended.

Far from trying to get me to do work that might not be necessary, Mark tells me that I don't need the work I am getting! But I want my car services every three months, necessary or not. I am not knowledgeable at all in this area. I feel very comfortable having an honest fellow like Mart Thibault to rely on.

by - Verified Customer March 22, 2017

Mark is the best!
