Whenever there’s a car, truck or minivan in your possession, you’re in charge of making sure it gets the vehicle maintenance it needs to keep it running and serving you well. But we know how easy it is to lose track of the last time you brought your vehicle in for its care because. With all the multi-tasking you’re required to do these days, weeks and months can fly by at what seems like warp speed. It isn’t fair, but it is what it is, and your vehicle needs what it needs, just as you do. So take a moment now, while you’re thinking about it, to check your owner’s manual and auto repair record for each vehicle you own. Then remind yourself when you need to bring in your vehicle(s) for new drive belts, timing belts, oil changes, tune up, fluid checks and the other necessities it needs to keep you keepin’ on.

I'm very pleased with the work done to my truck. I had a laundry list of maintenance issues and Chuck's shot it to me straight, worked within my budget and delivered exceptional service. My favorite part about this place, unlike anywhere else I've taken my vehicles, is their willingness to show you the work they've done. They pull a box out with all the old parts and explain why it needed to be replaced. Their expertise and openness puts my nerves at ease, knowing that I can trust the work they've done.
surprising based on age of car. They texted a detailed quote then called me to go over each item. No pressure on me to approve any or all the work. Because of scope of repairs, could not be completed same day. But work was done within time frame provided. One part cost slightly more than estimated only because they had to get from the dealer(again due to age of car)although they did try other options first. This was discussed before proceeding. I was very satisfied with the communication and professionalism.
