Wow!!! I just want to say my experience with Darrick was great. My vehicle broke down and was in need of some major repairs. I am not from the area so I was a little hesitant to just have it towed to any shop. When I started the entire process I was surprised by what the tow truck driver offered. Since he lived a few miles within where the car broke down he offered me a lower rate to pick up and tow. Then when it came to diagnosing the problem Darrick and his team did exactly what I expected. They called me with the not so great news of the cost and time to repair. I was still a little skeptical about Darricks because you don't know who these folks are but you don't have much choice either because they have pulled your car apart. I do have to say that there guarantee puts your mind at ease a little. Again more then expected. The initial estimate was a far sum of money and did increase as they removed parts and got down to the real cause of the issue. This was not surprising as I knew about some of the issues prior to the break down. All I can say is the option was there to do the work when it was apart and not after the fact. Fix the problem when its apart and not after you have put the motor back together. I liked the approach of Darrick's Team and the candid conversations we had throughout the process. After all is said and done I would recommend their service to anyone. Great job and wonderful people to work with, honest and trustworthy. I don't believe you can say that about many Automotive/Repair shops but Darrick's is one of them. Thanks Stranded Crew

Great service
I left my car on a Sunday and they had the estimate ready before noon on Monday. The car was finished before the end of the day on Monday. They fixed everything that I had asked with great quality. They even found more items that needed to be fixed, but I requested to have it fixed at a later date. Since it wasn't safety related they oblige me. Darricks have been taking care of my cars for years. They have politely diagnosed problems and allowed me to fix many of them myself. They have always informed me of the least expensive method to fix with a quality solution. Dan The hardest thing to do is to find a mechanic that you can trust. I fully have faith and trust with Darricks.

Very professional, kept me informed.
Very responsive with initial phone call, kept me apprised of what needed to be done; happy to be provided with a loaner vehicle so I didn't have to arrange for rides.
