Excellent, excellent, excellent!!! These folks are outstanding. They are straight shooters, honest, and how refreshing, customer service oriented. I took my car because the a/c was not working and they fixed it. Along the way I was kept informed. No surprises, just great service! Finally, I found an honest shop for my aging car. I will return and would recommend them to anyone. Tom even diagnosed my foot pain correctly!!!

Your shop is the bomb! I went in with an air conditioner blowing hot air and with it being an 18 year old car there could have been much wrong. With a quick diagnostic dye job, it was found to need coolant only! No leading me down a long dark path. You also found the exhaust problem my old garage was totally stumped about. Yeah Sean! (Who by the way took the time to explain the problem) I have been telling everyone who will listen how wonderful this shop is. Need a great garage, don't waste time Go to Standard Auto!

First of all, they gave me a free oil change and inspection for being a new customer. Secondly, they gave me an accurate quote for service needed. Then they provides a free loaner car!!! My car was repaired on time and job done right. They have now become my repair shop!

I received my oil change in an hour and a half as promised on my BMW. Every one was extremely friendly and helpful.

Finally! Found a shop who not only cares about the work they do but they also take the time to explain to you in detail what it going on and why. NEVER again will I go to a dealership. Thanks Tom and Sue!!!

I was surprised that I was informed after my vehicle was at there shop that there is a charge for finding the problem. Then surprise #2 the fee to find out what the problem is extra and not taken off the bill if you have the work done by them. When the engine lights came on a couple days after the work was done I took it back to see if the problem was from work they had done or something new I was told they didn't see the white smoke, (which after sitting for a while and you start the engine the white smoke would engulf the truck, new issue), that the water level was the same in the radiator so they "do not think it is from the work they did", and now it will cost me $246 to find the problem. What I wanted was to know for sure was the new problem was not related to the work, (should have been tested by them at their expense), they had done which was changing the water pump and fan clutch.

Dear Mr. Kohlruss,

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Yes we do charge for diagnostic services the same as your doctor does. Most shops do. The ones who use the method you have wished for simply roll that expense into the repairs. Due to the complexity of todays cars diagnostic services are a large part of our business and require expertise and special equipment. It is not possible to provide these services for free and remain in business for long. The diagnostician still must be paid. They do not work for free I'm afraid. I see from our notes on your return visit that we did address the white smoke problem and did confirm that it was not related to the work we did. In fact we were not able to confirm that there was any smoke at that time. If you continue to have problems or ever feel that there is a problem with our work you are free to return for a free evaluation. Our work is guaranteed. Thank you for your business.

I was quoted a large amount of money from a dealer to repair my vehicle and I am happily back on the road at a fraction of the price!

Just tell their tiny little mechanic not to get your interior dirty... if you dare:-)
