"I called in advance to see if they were very busy, and they said they could get me in within 10-15 minutes. I went right over and they talked with me right away" to square away the paperwork. I was out the door 20 minutes later, so they were able to service my car even sooner than they had promised. This was the second time I used them, and both times were efficient, courteous, and inexpensive.

"I was a walk-in (drive-in ;-) customer. I went on a Tuesday afternoon. There was one person there ahead of me. I had to wait about 5 minutes. They drove my" car into the bay, did the check. Passed. 10 minutes and i was done. No , no fuss. It was fast and reasonably priced. I've paid nearly twice this amount ($50) in the past. It is kind of a run-down looking place with a very spartan waiting room, but the service is great and fast.

, the owner, is very nice and very knowledgeable. His prices are very reasonable. Every time I have used him he had done the work in a very reasonable amount of time.

They are honest. They called us up on the phone. We were on vacation leave and they told us that the brakes were good and we don't need to put new shoes or disc on our brakes. That's rear especially with mechanics. Everything is expensive here so their price is okay. Their responsiveness is very good. They are very punctual. The timing ...More was good because it was done by the time we got back in the town. They are very professional. We would use them again in the future.

Rating
Excellent. We called to make an appointment, but one wasn't necessary for the morning. The work was completed within a couple of hours. Unlike some auto service we have had in the past, no 'unnecessary' work was performed. For example, he advised that a new timing belt wasn't required, and that it could last the life of the car.

I have been needing a check to complete the auto registration from 2 months ago. My husband knows how I LOATHE getting stuff like this done. Call me old fashioned, but as far as I am concerned, that is a man's world. He recommended I go to , assuring me it would be a painless process. I was verbally ...More greeted immediately by and went to wait in the waiting room. It was clean and had magazines available suited for men and women. His shop was clean and had one surf poster on the wall. Nothing anyone would find offensive. When it was my turn, he put the van on the Dyno and (yes embarrassing to me) I ran out of gas. Oops! He put enough in for me to get to the gas station & come back, and encouraged me I wasn't the first. He treated me with respect and kindness in a situation others might have exploited. If it weren't for MY error, it would have been an even quicker process than it already was. He even gave me a discount since I was a returning customer.

It went well. The proprietor has a thick accent but was very easy to interact with. I called and asked if we could drop our Camry off the night before, and he advised against this and instead recommended we drop in when ready, after calling in advance. I did this, had to wait for him to finish the two jobs in front of mine. He completed the inspection ...More on my car in less than 30 minutes.

I was advised that the service would take about 2 1/2 hours. About 1 hour later I received a call that a part was not readily available, but would be delivered shortly and it would delay the pick up time by an additional hour or so. I had my husband drop me off at a near-by Starbucks and settled in for the long wait. About 15 minutes later, I was surprised ...More to hear my name called. I was being picked up by and taken to their shop. The missing part had been picked up by them to save time and I was on my way much earlier than anticipated. This is customer service at its best! My car is running great. I feel the cost is in line with the service received. Everybody is friendly and eager to please. Questions were answered and I was encouraged to call with any concerns or future questions. I left a very happy camper. One week later I received a thank you note from , which included a $5.00 Starbucks gift card and $10.00 off my next visit. I am recommending to my friends.

I chose his company because their policy is if you do not pass the test there is no charge for the test. I passed the test with flying colors, so that was no problem. Call first to make an appointment so that you don't have to wait. They are very helpful and friendly there, and were the only company that did not charge if you did not pass.
