" did an amazing job. I cannot praise him enough for the level of detail that he provided. That level of detail made it very,very, easy to" walk away from the vehicle and not have any concerns about doing so. Provided and in depth report notated all the damage that vehicle suffered, which by the way did not show up on carfax. Also, provided notations about the total condition of the vehicle as far as a maintenance perspective, oil leaks, worn tires, etc. Bottomline, if you are in the Portland area, or just thinking about buying a vehicle from a dealership in the area. Give a call, it will be the best money that you will spend hands down.

"They did the inspection on my car and it should've never passed inspection because the brakes and the turn signals do not work. I have print out of who did" the inspection and 's employee signed the inspection as a certified inspection expert. I called the number on the internet and it is a fax number. I can't get ahold of them at all.

I had the worst experience ever. I took it to them. They said the battery and alternator were not working, although I had them both changed in 2014. Then they put in a new alternator and battery. Then they bypassed a wife to start the car, but it was not starting well. Then I went there and they told me the car was finished. They told me the whole car ...More would be about $500. I took the old alternator to another shop and they told me it was working fine, but the other dealer told me it was not working. I took the car to another company and they fixed it for under $200. The punctuality was fine.

They were able to put a new bulb in and it was all fixed. They take such good care of my 13 year old vehicle. They will not fix anything until they know what it was. I am able to call them up and they give me a recommendation of what it might be and would ask me to come into the shop. They will not do anything or recommend anything without it being ...More absolutely necessary. They will tell me what is excepted to be done in the future and would give me recommendations too. These are the most honest people in the car business that I have ever dealt with. I am a loyal customer of theirs and they are very skilled. They are also accountable for their work and they have a 2 year warranty on their parts. I also like that they keep electronic records of what work has been done to my car. I wished I could give them an A double plus. They also continuously give me reminders, by email, of when regular services need to be performed.

returned my message the same day and we were able to schedule the appointment for the next morning. He came to my place of business to inspect a 2-year-old loaner car with low mileage and completed the job, including test drive, within 90 minutes. He found only a few minor problems, fortunately, but I felt the price was worth ...More the piece of mind and I was able to get the dealership to fix the problems at no charge as part of the selling price. He was very professional and I have already recommended his services to others.

The owner was honest, fair, and up front: very big issues when dealing with car repair. He let me know very clearly how much everything would cost to repair and what needed addressing right away. The shop is not a luxury dealership with all its money going to the lounge and lighting, so the repair prices he quoted me were lower than I expected. My only ...More complaint is not specifically for the mechanical service, but the receptionist took down a list of questions I had about the car and it was clear later that she had not passed those on to the mechanic.
I would absolutely go here again. I felt I could trust what I was being told, that everything was being explained to me clearly, and that I was being quoted a fair price for the work.

They are always courteous, easy to drop off the car and they called when to pick up. My family has used for years they are very reputable and fairly priced. Will continue to use them. Great people to deal with.

Love these guys.
Been many times.
Could have ripped me off many times
but always come back with a fix
when they could have told me it was major
and always with a great price and a timely work done.

I am in TN and looking to purchase a car in NJ. He visited the dealer and performed an inspection of the car. He Identified many undisclosed issues including an apparent disabling of the Engine Code light. Obviously, I did not purchase the vehicle. Excellent Work!

Professionals all around. This is the place I'm taking my cars for state inspection. They don't try to charge me for every little things like some other places. I was in and out in 10 minutes. Quickest inspection place I have ever been to.
