I took a couple of different vehicles in to their shop for work and found that you need to make sure you double check what they have done. Are all the components back where they should be are there any "little parts" missing. It would seem that they have one Master Mechanic in the garage with a number of Jr mechanics working there. If your lucky enough to get the Master working on your car - great! If not, then you better double check the work.

They only use parts from the dealer, or so they say, so expect to pay extra. Also, a little bit of research shows that even when they say they have the right price, they don't, so call around for the parts that you need because you'll be able to bargain a better discount. My car didn't get ready in time, so they paid for a rental, so it wasn't so bad.

Tom is honest and reliable. Estimates are always reasonable, and the actual cost almost always comes at or below the estimate. Work is reliable.

Mike is their master mechanic and he seems to know what he's doing! He's easy to deal with, too. My only complaint is that their shop rate per hour is quite high, so be prepared to pay handsomely for competence.

Always honest. The actual cost is usually slightly less than the estimate, but there is definitely a premium for the competent high quality work they do.

Reccomended to me by a friend. They are not cheap but worth it. They take their time to do the job right the first time and they stand behind their work.
