I took my car there when I couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. And I'm a mechanic. They found the problem when I couldn't. They worked with me on the price. It was very reasonable. They're friendly too.

Verified CustomerJune 06, 2013

They changed all my belts in my car and things started to happen after like the timing belt and other stuff going out and not working. I got a new starter, water pump, and new serpentine. Something loosened up in the end and the crank shaft started to go crazy.

Verified CustomerJune 03, 2013

I thought they did a great job. They replaced my brakes on my Toyota. Highly satisfied.

They keep me in the loop the whole time. The repair they did is still working. They gave me different options to offer me different prices.

Verified CustomerMay 07, 2013

They don't charge you a lot.

Verified CustomerMay 07, 2013

The work was good, but the prices were more than I wanted to pay.

Verified CustomerApril 01, 2013

My car hasn't run well after this repair. They did an oil change and didn't reset the check engine light so somehow after I got my car all the lights on the dashboard were on. My car hasn't run right since. I went somewhere else to get it fixed. I wouldn't recommend them to anybody! DO NOT USE THIS MECHANIC!!

Verified CustomerMarch 30, 2013

They are reliable. They answer the questions I ask about the car. They are honest too, I forgot my card and they called me right away. I'm satisfied with my car when they fix it.

Verified CustomerNovember 19, 2012

They did a good job of getting it in, checking it out, and letting me know the next day. They did a great job, it just wasn't something to write home about. It was acceptable. It wasn't bad, it wasn't good, just not something that stood out in my mind.
