A trustworthy and friendly auto repair shop.

Jeff is the most friendly, most honest mechanic around! After quickly diagnosing my SUV's problem, the owner explained to me everything that was wrong and needed to be done. Really put me at ease. A trustworthy, friendly, auto repair shop with reasonable pricing and attention to detail what more can you ask for. I will definitely be back! - Chris B. (5 star review from Facebook)

14 years of great service!

I've been dealing with Jeff for over 14 years. Has always been upfront and honest. Has saved my family thousands of dollars. Does great work on cars!!!! - Eli B. (5 star review from Facebook)

No lies, no surprise fees, everything went wonderfully!

I had a sudden and devastating issue with my radiator and cooling fan assembly, and through the reviews on Google I gambled and took a chance with this place. I literally couldn't be happier. My car is my baby, and I just picked it up from this great shop.

They told me they'd run a diagnostic and call me before any repairs were done. They were honest and did so, told me the exact problem when they called and fixed it only when I gave the green light! Gave me an out the door price before he fixed it, and kept to it when I checked out at the end. No lies, no surprise fees, everything went wonderfully! He even kept the broken parts to show me the problem after he pulled it out of my car. Fantastic service, I will recommend this to anyone who really cares about their car. - Ashley H.
