I have used Duane on numerous appointments and on several different vehicles that I own. He always shows up early, does a thorough job and explains any issues so I can understand. He is the only mechanic that I will use now as I trust that he gives me a true picture of my vehicle and what is needed. No up selling like most shops and dealerships. Great guy!

Knowledgeable, friendly, and trustworthy.

Duane is the man. He goes above and beyond to help out and make you feel comfortable. He is much more thorough than some of the indie shops I have been to. He takes the time do things like use using gauges to measure play in bushings as compared to indie shops that try to feel it by hand.

My car has been playing tricks on many skilled mechanics who could not find the problem to my constant check engine light coming on and off. Duane found the problem and explained to me what needed to be done asap. Duane also let me know about future repairs that i would need to get taken care of. Duane is truly a blessing. I recommend Duane to anyone who needs a good knowledgeable skilled mechanic
