Fred was very friendly and thorough to get to the root of the issue. Even when he could not find a fault to why my engine light was on, he went above and beyond to make absolutely sure that the concern was minimized. Turns out, all that needed to be done was a reset but his diagnostic to address my issues was very intricate and appreciated.
