CUSTOMER SERVICE

Today's cars, light trucks, and sport-utility vehicles are high-tech marvels with digital dashboards, oxygen sensors, electronic computers, unibody construction, and more. They run better, longer, and more efficiently than models of years past.

But when it comes to repairs, some things stay the same. The following tips should help you along the way:

Do your homework before taking your vehicle in for repairs or service.

  • Read the owner's manual to learn about the vehicle's systems and components.
  • Follow the recommended service schedules.
  • Keep a log of all repairs and service.

When you think about it, you know your car better than anyone else. You drive it every day and know how it feels and sounds when everything is right. So don't ignore its warning signals.

Use all of your senses to inspect your car frequently. Check for:

  • Unusual sounds, odors, drips, leaks, smoke, warning lights, gauge readings.
  • Changes in acceleration, engine performance, gas mileage, fluid levels.
  • Worn tires, belts, hoses.
  • Problems in handling, braking, steering, vibrations.
  • Note when the problem occurs.
  • Is it constant or periodic?
  • When the vehicle is cold or after the engine has warmed up?
  • At all speeds? Only under acceleration? During braking? When shifting?
  • When did the problem first start?

Once you are at our location, communicate your findings.

  • Be prepared to describe the symptoms.
  • Carry a written list of the symptoms that you can give us.
  • Resist the temptation to suggest a specific course of repair. Just as you would with your physician, tell us where it hurts and how long it's been that way, but let the technician diagnose and recommend a remedy.

Stay involved. . . Ask questions.

  • Ask as many questions as needed to fully understand your repair. Ask for laymen terms if needed.
  • Don't rush the technician to make an on-the-spot diagnosis. You may ask to be called and apprised of the problem, course of action, and costs before work begins.
  • Before you leave, be sure you understand all shop policies regarding labor rates, guarantees, and acceptable methods of payment.
  • Leave a telephone number where you can be called.


What Our Customers Are Saying

If I could only rate them higher, I would. Pat (owner/operator) went above and beyond for me when I had a pretty traumatic breakdown of one vehicle, and another ran off the road. Not only was his work prompt, excellent, and affordable, he went FAR ABOVE AND BEYOND what could be expected of him when dealing with my insurance company. Over the course of several months of the insurance company losing paperwork and reciepts, even after I had paid him cash out of pocket, Pat went to bat for me and resent and re-emailed everything i requested of him to make sure I got paid. He's got my business for life and I would recommend anyone to him.

These guys are awesome ! We were on vacation, about two hours from home when our Subaru WRX began overheating and the owner was able to get our car in ASAP and diagnose the issue and get it fixed within a matter of hours. We are so thankful for your service !


-Aryana S.

Go check out this nice clean auto shop with of course "the auto channel" and coffee in the lobby. Guys are stopping in to talk cars ... Pat will give you the honest happy deal, and the smile and price to go with it. This company is going to be the best place to take a car, if you're tired of the dealership run around!!


-Misty L.

This place was a life saver! Pat and his crew were amazing and knew exactly what was wrong with our truck. We were hundreds of miles away from home and had the smallest electrical issue and they were able to figure it out. They are smart and knowledgeable and we would highly recommend these guys for anyone who lives there or happens to have car issues on their travels. 5 out of 5!!


-Holly B.
