Todd Grail, Chris and his crew have cared for my cars since the day they opened in 1986. The shop is as clean as the day they opened. Their equipment is constantly updated and the expertly trained mechnics are abreast of the latest developments and informed of manufacturers bulletins. The estimates are never exceeded witout prior acceptance. They have provided me with regularly scheduled service on all of the last five cars I have owned and exceeded the manufacturers and dealers recommndations at reasonable and very competative charges. Two years of chasing a windshield rattle at the dealership to no avail and considerable expense led me into te newly opened shop. Fifteen minutes later I was on my way, the problem solved and at no chage! It was the sliding sun shield mounted in the sun visor which rattled in its completely closed position. Heat bending of the shield stopped the rattle. In all the years of service I have found the shop extremely courteous and careful to mske sure the customer was well informed. Their treatment of women is to be commended and appreciated. I have been a car owner since 1936 and have only the highest regard for this shop, and in that length of time I have experienced may!

These guys are great! They are good at fixing what needs to be fixed, and they're so refreshingly honest. I can't tell you how many times they've fixed little things without charging me an arm and a leg. They have the same respect for me, my wife, my mother-in-law who is in her eighties, and my 17-year-old daughter.

I brought my car in because the "check engine" light was on and the car was running rough. I was told I had fouled plugs and that they needed to be replaced with 70K on them. I was told the plugs were expensive because they were platinum tips. I was given the part number and was quoted a $30+ price per plug. I was at work and needed the car ASAP so I gave them the OK. I was able to check the price of the plug they quoted me and found out it was only $8. There are $30+ plugs out there, but they weren't installing them, they were installing the $8 plug. I called and told them to forget it, but they had already installed the front three. I told them not to install the others. I paid them for there work. I installed the other plugs myself. The car continued to run rough. After some online research, I found out the coils on my Maxima (there are six of them) often go bad. I troubleshot the problem down to a single coil and replaced it. My car has run like a champ since then. I found Scholls Ferry Auto to be dishonest AND incompetent and will NEVER go back! I have warned all who will listen to avoid this place like the plague.

The guys at SFA are wonderful. They have been honest in helping me decide what needs to be done immediately, maintenance that can be deferred and what I need to do to make my cheap crappy car last longer. They have told me where I can source parts more cheaply than they can (and then installed them reasonably when I got them) They've always taken the time to explain to me why something needs to be done (or can be deferred) They don't talk down to me, and know us well enough that if my hubby is dropping the car off that he needs a longer explanation than I do (hubby is not at all mechanical). Their costs are reasonable and I've never had them start any work without authorization. Good people, good prices, nice dog.
