Friendly, quick, reliable and honest. With prices that are reasonable. I typically I do all of my own automotive repair, from oil changes to engine replacement. But every once in a while I find myself in a pinch and just don't have the time or it’s something I just don’t want to do. Ashley’s has been great at filling in where it counts.They know that I do most of my own work and are very helpful. They take the time to show me what’s wrong, explain why it’s wrong (without be condescending), what they would do to fix it, and tell me exactly what it will cost. If I decided to do the work they are perfectly happy with that – they’ll even give me some pointers if I ask. In a nutshell, they’ve built a level of trust with me and I feel like I can trust them with the family car and ultimately my family’s safety.

I stopped in at the store about a week ago the gentleman up front was doing something on his phone did not acknowledge me so I walked by the garage two men were watching something on an iPad another mechanic was setting talking on his cell phone but an older gray-haired gentleman I assume was a mechanic was the only one working and he asked me if he could help me but by this time I was too upset by being ignored by the other four then I just left and went down the street to Firestone I would not recommend this place to anyone unless something was done about the workers here I believe the mechanic I spoke to he was really nice and I think he said his name was Kenny

I met with the owner and it was obvious right away that he knew what he was talking about. His prices were very reasonable and he provided excellent service. I highly recommend this company and I will use again for future projects.
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
