I had a muffler fitted 14th July 2021, on my old car. They were nice to deal... with from start to finish, they took the problem out of my hands and fixed my exhaust in no time and for a great price too!. I'll certainly be back 👍read more

I first used their services 7 years ago. My muffler had broken off the exhaust... pipe. They welded it and gave it back to me with no charge at all. They simply asked me to return if I ever needed a muffler.I returned with a newer vehicle for a general service as I plan of driving across country and didn't want to deal with any breakdowns. They replaced my aging amber signal lights and gave me a service report.They again charged me nothing.I can't say enough about their generosity. The inspection took at least an hour.Please consider them for your business.read more

Don't know how anyone could give em any less then 5 stars. Details below!Went... in for brakes and rotors, super friendly staff but not in that weird over friendly way, just solid nice humans. Told me how long It would take and I kid you not had it down to the minute it was amazing. Explained everything, showed me everything which I always appreciate.Few weeks later, car starts making a weird noise (something has come loose, can't for the life of me figure it out myself). Give them my super bad vague description, they ponder a couple possibilities and take it for a drive. My horn had fallen off, we all had a good chuckle, they fixed it for 30 mins work, could have charged more for having to take it for a drive for sure.BONUS POINTS: figured out why the car was making another mildly irritating noise that has been going on for as long as I've had the thing (let me know I didn't really have to worry about it unless it gets more annoying) thus answering a question that's been bugging me for about two years, the dealer was not able to identify the source of this noise.5 stars without a doubt.read more

We took our xterra for a trans fluid change, valve cover gasket replacement and... check up. The guys noticed our clutch was on its way out. They got it ordered and installed for us but there was some issues when we left with it. When we took it back they worked to fix the problem and as an apology for us having issues, they fixed a braking issue and changed the other valve cover gasket ($1000 worth of work as a courtesy) who does that???? The clutch was still giving us problems and we were all baffled. I had important plans which required a 4X4, Ryan put me in a rental, took my xterra to a transmission specialist and realized it was a faulty clutch. He replaced the entire clutch again and got it back to me in perfect condition. And wow, I’m impressed. I have never felt so taken care of, I gotta say, I was worried when we got it back and it wasn’t working right. But these guys WORKED IT OUT AND THEN SOME!!!!!!!!! Never going anywhere else with my vehicles. Hands down, best service I’ve ever had. EVER, amazing, these guys don’t stop until it’s right ❤️Thank you so much Ryan, you’re the bestread more

10/10 Highly recommendI have returned to this shop with different vehicles... over the years. The service is excellent. Jobs are finished on time and at the estimate quoted. I most appreciate the general attitude of everyone in the shop. Many times, I feel they go above and beyond in servicing the vehicles. On this most recent visit, they noticed another issue with the cat and took the initiative to implement a fix at no additional cost. Grateful to have a specialist I can trust. 10/10 Highly recommendread more
