I am so impressed with this family operated business. My car is an older model but it really has never run as well as now. The service is fast and precise, the customer is made aware of what is being done and what is recommended to be done. Pricing was fair. I am happy.


-Tonia R.

Great service. I went there my check engine light was on. Brian hooked up to the cars computer found the code. Opened the hood and found a disconnected vacuum line. He reconnected it. He told me he's not sure if that was the problem. Said to drive the car and see if the light comes back on. Honest service.
