I was referred to them by a friend. My son had trouble with his car when starting, and it was running rough. I told them he needed to drive cross country for the military and I wanted the car diagnosed and repaired (It is 5 years old with 92000 miles on it). They thoroughly checked the car out and did all necessary repairs, they reccommended a few other maintenance items. They spent three days on diagnostic problems and then started and drove the car to be sure everything had been corrected. I was kept informed throughout and the cost was quite reasonable. The car runs like new and more importantly is once again a safe and reliable VW Jetta

I took my Mercedes to them a couple of times. The first for a head gasket and the other for a water pump. They did a very good job and the price quoted is what I paid. I'm completely satisfied with the work and would take it to them again. Much better prices than dealer and better experience by far especially that my car is 13 years old and MB dealer does not really care for my business. They did recommend a couple of things be replaced on the car but I wish they called to tell me about them when they had everything apart so I'd only pay for parts. So I recommend the customer be pro-active and ask if anything else needs done before work is finished.

I bought a used BMW that had a problem in the fuel system and they interpreted the codes from the controller and suggested that I see the dealer since there was a chance that some warranty work done for the previous owner had not fulfilled the obligations of the problem. They were dead on with this fact. They also found that the system had lost contact with the right front door (window, lock, etc.) but did not want to damage the inside door panel in the process of accessing the problem; another job for a dealer. That proved to be a single corroded pin in the connector to the door harness. They knew when I had a better option and their honesty resulted in $1400 worth of work being billed to the warranty despite its lapsing during the multiple efforts to ultimately and fully debug the fuel system. I return because I like their candor and they respect my input when I come in. I don't want to be pandered to by someone wearing a doctors' jacket or escorted to the owners' lounge. From Motorwerks I can walk down to DeLuca's for some pancakes while getting an oil change.
