"Fast and friendly service! I love this place, and am so happy I discovered brothers Chris and Gary. Going to an auto repair shop can be intimidating for someone like me who knows nothing about cars, but these guys not only know their stuff, they're super friendly and actually take the time to explain the situation. There's no run-around and no awkwardness.

I brought my car here for a brake replacement, and I couldn't be happier. Not only did my brakes get replaced quickly, but their prices are more than fair. And there's no overcharging or up-selling like some shops. From now on, when my Sally needs something remedied, I'll be taking her to The Car Doctor!"


"I had a sudden problem w/my alternator, literally sudden. It happened on a friday morning. I phoned the car doctor at the recommendation of family(mom-in-law and sis-in-law both go here, love it and now I know why). They got me in and fixed the car prior to the long weekend. I was so impressed and grateful ~ highly recommend. They really went the extra mile ~ Thank you car doctor!!!"

"The team here is unsurpassed... they go above & beyond, do excellent work, straight up with you, run like clockwork, so friendly I wait for my car & customer service that's rare anymore. I moved out of the area but still refer people there. Thanks All!"
