Friendly, no pressure, professional. Always feel comfortable coming knowing I won’t have to leave my car and everyone is always kind and makes me feel comfortable.

Every person working was very kind, respectful and professional. I was informed on additional services that are available but was not pressured into anything and didn't feel uncomfortable when the options were explained to me. I'm a woman and shops usually have at least one condescending man but everyone was respectful and professional. I didn't feel judged at all by how much of a wreck my car is - I pretty much live in my car 90% of so my car very much screams "homeless" but no one even batted an eye (I've had other shops make comments / be super judgemental / etc.)

I did not say I wasn't satisfied. I was merely not overwhelmed. Service was just fine, took a little longer than expected but it wasn't horrible.

They did not conduct a turn signal & light check like they’re supposed to do. I feel that’s important & didn’t really think about it until I left.

Lack of communication regarding any other services needed. The person assisting me was great, however the other employees appeared annoyed, not friendly.

Everyone was very courteous, explained what they were doing and why. I specifically liked they didn't make me buy a new filter. My filter was about 1 month old, but a bit dirty. The guy just told me he would remove some of the bigger debris and I should replace it the next visit which I will.

Service was immediate since there was no line - that was a bonus:)! Once the work started, the staff was efficient, friendly, and clear in their explanations of what was currently being serviced on my car and what they recommended.
