Customer Reviews
Mary H. on 7/16/2016:
"Honest and they do great work. Do not add on work-items just to make $$. Dan's the Man. They diagnose, and let you know what's critical, versus stuff that could be done, but not necessary. It's about assuring the vehicle is safe, and the work done is done right the first time. HIGHLY recommend. (Side note: If you need a rental car Dan gets a great deal w/ the rental car company for you. They'll come and get you from the shop.)"
