Thank you to Doug for helping with an emergency tire repair. I was in and out in 30 minutes! The family really appreciated the help, as we had packed the car for travel that day and the toddler was not going to cooperate for too long! Since everything went so quick, we were back on the road that afternoon and made it to see family just in time! Thanks again Doug.

My significant other is an orthopedic trauma hospital nurse who works the night shift and commutes over an hour each way after working a 12+ hour day. I notice that her car's brakes were down to the rotor metal and squealing significantly. After asking a few questions and looking at the vehicle's service records, I discovered that the vehicle had factory pads, rotors, and drums at 78k. That is, they had never been serviced. As she needed to be back on shift in two days, I called around to see who could get this done. No other shop in town would even consider it, but Doug's worked the car in between appointments and we had her back on the road, back to work and taking care of people this very evening. The cost was reasonable especially considering we needed the work done so quickly. I look forward to working with Doug's in the future. I noticed that they had some car racing photos in the lobby. I come from a family of stock car and drag racing enthusiasts dating back to the 50's so that caught my attention. I wondered if the gentleman pictured might be the owner. I had a very good experience here. Highly recommended.
Incredible service and great people.

Outstanding. I arrived at closing time spewing white smoke in my pristine and beloved S2000. A bolt located at the bottom of super-charger had vibrated out. The issue was quickly diagnosed and the car was ready for pick-up the following day. To add icing-to-the cake the excess oil was removed from the engine well.

Jason and his son really helped me out in a bind. My car battery died thankfully in my driveway, they came to my house to replace the battery. Otherwise I would have had to tow it to get the battery fixed. I really appreciated it with an infant and a deployed husband the towing scenario would have been really difficult.

The staff was very friendly, and efficient. We were very concerned that our car may not even be able to be fixed, but not only was it fixed, the price of fixing our vehicle was very affordable, and our vehicle ran extremely better after it was serviced here. We did not go without our car for long at all which was a huge blessing. They were kind enough to let me use their restroom. It was very clean and well kept. It did not take long for them to retrieve our keys and check us out. I would highly recommend this place for anyone that needs any maintenance done to their vehicle(s). I will most certainly revisit this place for any further needs of our vehicle.
