As someone who doesn't know much about vehicles, I have always felt uneasy to bring my car anywhere and be taken advantage of. However, John and his team are so knowledgeable, kind and honest about what services you need done. I am so grateful I have found this place and I will keep going as long as I am living in the Tri-cities.read more

John the owner and crew were all very helpful, and went above and beyond taking care of my Volkswagen Golf. They gave me a very reasonable quote for my front brakes, and did the work efficiently, and professionally.Highly recommended. Thanks againread more

Had them replace my resonator/muffler pipe. They had it done quickly and for a fair price. Came out to my car and was super pleasantly surprised that they had given my foot mat a vacuum/wash! 10/10 would go here again!read more

Fast, friendly, and honest service! I took my car in for an estimate thinking I needed my front brakes done at the very least, as well as to get a squealing noise from a fan belt looked at. After taking the time to check things out, I was told my brakes are just fine and that an adjustment to the fan belt (which they did) should take care of the issue. All is this was done without charge. So impressed! This will definitely be my new “go to” place for service, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to a friend. Thank you!read more

Amazing, 5 STAR SERVICE ALERT!! John and his crew are the best around. They are friendly, honest, knowledgeable and very helpful. Bobby's knowledge and skill is also very impressive, he clearly knows what he's doing. Have been taking mine and my family's vehicles to John for years and will continue to do so. I am truly so grateful to know I can take my car to a place like this, when you have car trouble you don't need any extra stress..thanks guys!! Would recommend to anyone and everyone.read more

These guys are incredible! I drove into the parking lot and upon parking, Bobby noticed my headlight was out. He grabbed my keys and went to inspect. I would have had no idea as I'm never in front of my car when the lights are on. Super appreciate the attention to detail from this shop!read more

Excellent service. Great Price.Needed an overhaul of the ignition coils and plugs on my Jeep. Got 4 estimates $800-1100. This shop was significantly lower and provided excellent service and advice.They found a leak in the antifreeze that was missed by the dealer who diagnosed the problem and fixed it free of charge. Jeeps ignition coils are a pain because you have to remove the while intake manifold to do a simple job. The job ended up taking longer than they expected, but they still charged less than the original quote.Very happy with the quality and service. Definitely recommend this shop. Good work, and more importantly great people.read more

After 25 years of dealing directly with an auto manufacturer, John and his shop were recommended to me. There cannot be a more competent, accommodating, knowledgeable and just outright happy person in this business than John is. Don't take my word for it! If you need some work done to your auto, get a quote somewhere else like I did, come to John without showing it to him and he will become your auto repair contact for the rest of your life! The group working there have all been infected with his wonderful service, can-do attitude, and a feeling of how important you are to the success of his shop. A terrific place to get your auto needs taken care of. Thanks John!read more
