Enrique
16 years of experience
Enrique was very friendly, professional, and positive! He provided excellent customer service, like a doctor with the ideal bedside manner. Examples of this are that he patiently listened to me, showed me the issues my car was having (which has happened maybe only once or twice in the 25 years I've been driving), and he explained to me the way it would affect the vehicle. He was the best service adviser and mechanic I've ever had.
