  • I’ve been coming here for two years and I haven’t had any complaints. They will keep working until they find the real source of the problem and they explain the problem so I can understand. If I take my car somewhere else they will tell you if the price is unreasonable and offer a fair price. You won’t have to wait for days. Usually same day pick up, and the building is very neat and clean. Friendly service! Great especially for BMW owners!! You’ll be happy you came!

  • My family had a car issue on our way back from visiting relatives. He was friendly, professional and fair. He had us back on the road in a couple of hours. Totally recommend!

  • He's great! I show up and tell him what's happening and he's always managed to fix it. Easily my favorite mechanic.

    I met John, the owner, after my car suddenly lost power on the interstate. He ran a diagnostic and took the car for a short test drive and was able to explain the seriousness of the issue very quickly and gave me great advice on my options and what to say to the dealership. He was very professional throughout and I would not hesitate to recommend him. Ultimately I am getting a new engine in my vehicle under warranty, just as John said it would most likely need.

    What a great experience! I took my BMW to replace my front brake pads, and I am very pleased with the service, the knowledge and the work John did! This is definitely the shop I will use for all my BMW needs.

    My car was running badly on my way back from Asheville. I came in at the very end of the work day and the owner was still kind enough to run a diagnostic on my car and tell me the parts I needed to fix it myself. He didn’t even charge me! Very much appreciate this kindness and generosity which is increasingly rare these days!

    OUTSTANDING!!! would be the simplest way to describe the service and experience. John was very straight forward, honest and reasonable. What I originally thought was a transfer case issue effecting my BMW X5 50i turned out to be a wheel size issue that John was able to determine. His knowledge and keen attention to detail saved me thousands of $ and an immense amount of frustration. If you have a BMW with any issue, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you make this your first stop if you want an honest thorough diagnosis and a reasonable price to address the issue. THANKS again John!

    Excellent service, Replaced rear brake pads on my BMW here, although they had 3 weeks of wait time on any appointments, they were nice to help me as I was stranded on the way back to ohio. John is truly specified in BMW cars.
