Not much to add. I've rely on your service once every couple of months and always feel confident I'll get good, friendly service. Keep it up.
Note: I give NOBODY a 5 star rating unless they have moved heaven and earth, so don't be disappointed.
Thank you Doug for your kind words! I appreciate your open and honest comments.

Alfredo takes very good care of my car and understands that I can't afford a lot of repairs, so he is very good at helping me "triage" which repairs are truly crucial and which repairs can wait until I have a few more paychecks under my belt.
I really appreciate his integrity and the good care he takes of my car!

really nice. I'm recognized when I come back. Communication is easy. There's no attempt to sell me something I don't need. The service is humane, high quality and comfortable. Thanks again, guys.

I and my family have been taking our cars to College Shell Auto Care for the past twenty five years. Through most (if not all) of that period, Alfredo Cano has been servicing and repairing our cars; he has recently become the owner. I have always been completely satisfied with their service: very competent, trust worthy, punctual, and friendly. We typically take their advice in all matters pertaining to cars. I have no hesitation in strongly recommending them.

Alfredo and his staff are ALWAYS very accommodating and his service is top notch. My car is always ready by the early afternoon if not sooner. He provides good feedback and recommended services. I am able to bring my car in at any time at my convenience and he always has it ready for me at the time I need it. No matter what I take my car in for Alfredo and his staff always inspect the entire vehicle for quality care. I bring my vehicle to College Shell Auto Care for all of my repairs.

Sal and Alfredo have been taking care of my Nissan truck for the past several years and they do a great job! They're honest, thorough, and nice guys. We're shooting for 200K miles.
