I'll definitely be back next time my car needs work. I came in for an oil change and they found I had a leaky tire too. They got it fixed right up and I was out of there quick. Friendly staff, great experience!

This is our go to shop for work my husband can't do himself. They are always honest and tell you what needs to be done, what should be done, and what can maybe wait a little while. I always feel like they are truthful with us and, unlike many shops, have never felt like they treat me as less knowledgeable because I am a female.

great service

The guys were great, very personable and helpful. I feel confident they did the work that needed to be done and no added frills. And if we had decided not to do everything they suggested, that would have been okay with them too.

RUN do not walk away from this place. This place is down right fraudulent I would avoid this place at all costs. There are enough mechanics out there to not give these scam artists a dime. I found this place through the Costco Auto program discount and will never be going back for any amount of discount on their "service". I actually did not pay them anything for their "diagnostic". I can see why I didn't pay them anything too. They spit the line "they just want people to be safe on the road checking their brakes for no cost." No they just want to replace entire break systems (that aren't necessary) and tell you 1000 other things are wrong that aren't really wrong. They quoted me 9712.86 dollars for everything "wrong" with the car... I took a 2007 Toyota Camry in with 122,000 miles. It has been well maintained the whole life of the car. Toyota engines do not fall apart at 122,000 miles when they are well maintained (almost any modern car does not unless it was abused). I was hearing a brake "grinding noise" in the rear is why I originally took the car in. I knew something needed to be fixed on the rear brakes. They proceeded to tell me I needed new pads, rotors, calipers on the entire rear brake system even though just one side was making noise. They flat out lied and said the caliper was completely ceased up. I've had that happen to a previous car and that was definitely not the case I already knew. A family member who was hurt at the time who is a master mechanic said he doubted the shop checked the calipers. That is a more time consuming process to actually take the calipers off and check them properly. The shop then proceeded to tell us the head gaskets were leaking, needed a new timing chain, new tires, new brake fluid, alignment. The only part that had some bit of truth to that was the tires. I just took the car into Costco to get the tires rotated and they told me the tires are "getting down there" but doesn't need replacing immediately. They recommended replacing before the end of the year if the car is driven every day. Anyways I took the car to an HONEST (not like this place) independent mechanic and he didn't see any evidence of this. He replaced the rear brake pads and rotors. The pin around the pads/calipers (I can't remember the proper name) was slightly sticking and there was rust on the rotors is the only thing that was wrong with the car. Thank God for honest people my repair bill with parts was 260 dollars! NOT 9700.00! Avoid this place at all costs. You have all been warned.
