I have been coming here for about 7 years and previously drove a 2007 Hyundai Accent up until March 2022. As a single woman with an economy vehicle, it was such a relief to find a honest shop who didn't pressure me into purchasing things I really didn't need and definitely could not afford. At first I only used them for repairs, but eventually I started using them for routine oil changes and I'm so happy not to have to go to horrible Jiffy Lube and their high pressure sales anymore. They have great communication and provide solid advice, but if I chose not to do something I never felt any pressure or negativity from the mechanics. I recently purchased a Kia Niro and called to make sure they work on hybrids (they do.) Highly recommend!
