Anthony was great! We are very happy that we chose to go with this company instead of the overpriced and slow service we get from the Jeep dealership. He was on time and did the job just as expected. He identified a couple of other things that need to be done before the problems get worse. We appreciate having a technician give us direct feedback regarding our vehicle, rather than a service advisor (salesperson) that we've had to deal with in the past at the dealership. We'll be booking the addtional services very soon and will definitely request Anthony again now that he is familiar with our vehicle!

Very helpful in finding out the fault codes in my bmw 740 li. It was simple fix and that the two tube hose just had to be connected and my drive train malfunction went away. This saved me from having to go the an expensive dealership. Anthony has a good attitude about his work.
