Ray's automotive has been repairing my cars for the last 8 years. During that time I've only had a few "unfinished" repairs, but I could always go back and they would fix/finish it for free. I have no reservations in recommending this shop to anyone in need of car maintenance or repairs.

They also let you know about any possible future problems they may see while working on your car and how much it would cost to head off these problems. One time they run a test on my toyota and the test said my catalytic converter was not working properly. They referred me to the local toyota dealer since it was still under a 7 year warranty. Car was 6years and 6months old. The dealer tested it and said it was an Oxygen senser. When that did't fix the engine light problem, they testd again and said it was the other oxygen senser. That also didn't fix the problem. Now 6 months later they said Oh! its the converter. Now warranty has run out. Nice huh. Well after showing them proof of the first diagnosis From Ray's and that on their computer I made the comment 6 months ago what the problem was, the dealer agreed to fix the part under the warranty after calling the toyota HQ. And under the question...they fix what they screw-up...I could answer because they havn't screwed anything up yet.

My 2008 Buick developed an oil leak which grew rapidly worse over a couple days. This car had never been serviced by anyone other than the dealer from whom I bought it new, but that dealer is about 50 miles away, and I didn't want to take a chance driving it that far. So I called Ray's and took it to them. They washed the underside of the car, and found the leak to be a pinhole in the oil filter which the dealer had just installed at my last oil change. Ray's replaced the filter and the lost oil, and tested to be sure the leak was fixed, and charged me only a very reasonable amount. Ray's will now be my go-to service shop.
