Always great service when I come to Karmakanix! Very thorough!

2 stars Customer since 2015

Easy to schedule and drop off, always do some added perks like greasing my squeaky door hinges, but at my most recent service a major portion of the job was not done which was a huge safety hazard. Again, they were responsive to my report and came out to meet me where I was parked to fix the situation but this is very concerning.

They were able to figure out what was wrong and fixed it. This is what I expect. However, I found you really do need to find a business that knows your particular car. Mine is the first year TDI which means it is significantly different from all the later models. These guys are worth going to for specific cars where the combined knowledge and diagnostic skill is needed. Older cars can fail in multiple modes which makes diagnosis expensive if your mechanic in not knowledgeable.

They have had a bit of an issue that required me to scramble to find a way home when the car was not ready as promised. Otherwise they would get 5 stars.

Great place for VW Van repair!

These guys know Eurovans, Westphalia, Vanagons, etc. and work on them all the time. They did a terrific inspection for the Eurovan I bought which brought all the problems to light and enabled me to get the purchase price down accordingly. Steve spent a lot of time explaining things to me, which I appreciated so much. The important thing is that I trust them...hard to match sometimes in this genre of repairs (auto).

Lunettes du Monde Optometry

5 stars 8 reviews

I literally love going to Lunettes du Monde. I’ve been wearing glasses and contacts for over 20 years and Dr. Dossa is one of the best optometrists I’ve been. She takes the time to discuss options, has a calm manner at all times, and remembers even the littlest of details from previous visits. After my first eye exam with her, she changed my prescription (lowering the contact power in one eye) and the difference is amazing. Dr. Dossa is an amazing optometrist for the entire family and my kids love her just as much as I do.
