Ripped off!! Avoid this place
Left my car to do only 12V battery test. I was told the charge would be 35 dollar. When I went to pick up the car I was charged 100 dollar. They claimed that they did a thorough test. But they should have informed me about the price change before they do full diagnose. No one called me. However I paid the full amount and went to get my car and suspected that no diagnose was done. So to clear thing up I went inside and asked the owner about my concern. They did not like it and a lady employee started calling me MEAN. And one point the owner used a F word and told me not to go to their store again I left a review in google and in response the owner said that I am dishonest. Haha... I expressed my concern after I paid in full, and he called me dishonest? They are the one told me $35 dollar to check the battery. Not me! Who is dishonest now? Besides, I am positive that no diagnose was done! I was leaving the store... but the owner came out of the store and said F word in front of my 9 years old child. I will NEVER forgive him I will post this on facebook and discourage all my friends and family to avoid this place.

Good work, but Estimate?
Estimate was given, but told that it would be much less than that - and that estimate was high. Ended up paying more because they forgot to add a required additional service on the estimate. Seems every time I get work there that this is the case - always paying more than the estimate for some reason or another. Bait-and-switch? Work performed was good, however - as far as I know. I’m not the mechanic.

Really great service.
Requested a quote to remove and replace rear axle bearings and seals on a Toyota Tacoma. Online quote submitted Sunday afternoon, I received a very reasonable quote to do the work the following morning. On Monday evening I dropped off my truck and by Thursday afternoon received a call that the work is finished at the same cost as the quote they provided me. Very professional service, performed the work quicker than expected, and at a cost I found to be very reasonable.

Friendly service, fast work
I dropped off my car for service and parts were expected to take a day or so to get, but they were able to get them sooner than expected and get the work done so I could get back on the road the next day.

High Quality Service.
I brought my car in for an oil change. They told me they would have my car finished first thing in the morning and kept their promise. Quite satisfied.
