100/100! I blew a brake line and my regular mechanic wouldn't touch it because my car is older and has some rust. Car-X took me in the next day and had it fixed a day later. Asked them to do an oil change and tune up at the same time since they had it in already, and I could not be more thrilled. Jeff and Tony were great--they kept me posted, did a general check to let me know what I have to keep an eye on, and were super pleasant and helpful both in person and over the phone. I don't trust anyone with my jeep easily, but I would not hesitate to bring it here again. I absolutely plan on making this my preferred, go-to mechanic as they just feel trustworthy. I was stranded and panicking when my brakes went out, and Car-X was right there ready to help!

My car broke down and after hours Had no idea what was wrong with my car. Jeff and Tony were absolutely amazing. They made sure I understood what was going on and what my options were. They even gave me the time to completely melt down and regroup. These are two people who truly care about not only the job but the people. Can't get this supreme level of customer service in most places. Thank you guys so much for everything.

Battery light went on on my dash, Friday afternoon. I wanted to act fast in case it was the alternator (which it turned out to be), stopped at two other local shops, totally unhelpful, "come back later", "we can't diagnose now", "we'll be back on Monday and look at it then". Pulled into this place, just before closing and within minutes had it diagnosed, I was presented with a professional estimate (which matched what the repair turned out to be, and at the industry standard rate and included warrantee), a plan to get it done and have me on the road early next day. I added on an oil change, they threw in a special discount (!), and all the while the most polite and respectful customer service. I am really happy to have found this place nearby and will use them for any other service I need. Thank you.

Great experience, everyone was awesome. I always hate getting my car worked on as a girl who does not know much about cars, however, Tony explained everything to me step by step and was very thorough about what needed to be done. Will definitely be coming back here anytime I need work done on my car.

Demetri and Tony helped me out after I had a flat tire. They were both incredibly friendly, forthcoming with what they were replacing, and very accommodating. They are both knowledgeable in their craft and provided excellent service. I was highly satisfied with their work and was able to quickly get back on the road. Thanks guys!
