On Labor Day my car died as I pulled out of my house. I was sure it was my transmission, but due to the Holiday everywhere was closed. I called another local shop right when they opened at 8am the next day and was told they'd have to call me back because they had a line. After 30 minutes and no call back, I called Ernie's. They had a tow truck to my house within an hour to pick up my car. A few ho...

Have been using them close to 10 years. The guy that is running it, just bought it from another family member. I forget his name. What made me keep using them? I had a couple situations where I had a problem with an exhaust pipe and it was going to cost me a $1,000 to have it repaired. The guy told me to go to another garage, it was Ryan’s Muffler Shop and it cost me less than $200 to get it fixed...

I am due to go up there and get an oil change in about 3 weeks. I have used them for all kinds of different things. I?ve been with Ernie?s for about 4 or 5 years. It was $700. He?s not the cheapest guy in town, but his work is good.  I get along with them all, they?re not the classiest guys in town, but they?re dependable and they do respond to you. They?re available, I mean I can always get in an...

They’re good people. They got me back on the road. I would tell family members that they were fair. They didn’t rip me off. They did only what I asked them. They weren’t bad. They do really good work. They were very professional. They had uniforms on. I would use them again.

They are very good.  The car was older but they had no problem finding parts.  They worked well with me on the  price to get it back in shape.  They definitely take care you of in a professional way.  They were willing to give me an estimate.

They found a used air conditioner to put in my wife's Ford Escort Wagon.

Not knowing exactly what the problem was, Matt was able to fix the problem.  The car is 7 years old and he recommended to have the coolent flushed and replaced as well as the transmission fluid replaced.  He also reminded me it was time for an oil change.  This was not done to get more business, it was a recommendation given the age and milage on the car.  Also they were having a special at the ti...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The car was stalling out off and on and the check engine light came on.  Matt ran a diagnostic on the car and found out it was a fuel sender sensor and fixed that.  The car runs great now.

So here I am with two elderly cars looking for a dependable service station. I contact Ernie's and talk to Matt. I request that they change out my tire rims for a set of aluminum rims I found and evaluate a slow leak on the driver's side. I also requested that they evaluate the possibility that the car is probably burning oil. Matt asks me when would I like to drop off the car and I say how about ...

[Member name removed], I think Matt talked to you when you came by to pick the car up and it wasn't finished and appologized then. We are very sorry that happened and is not typical for my business. We always do everything we can to meet our promissed times. That particular day presented some unusual circumstances being the day before the 4th of July and we were closed the next day. We were presen...
