Guy was very professional, respectful of my time and didn't question my concerns about my vehicle. Was my first time having my car serviced at this dealership and I feel comfortable going back.

By far the fastest drop off and pick service I have experienced while servicing my cars. Uber service was very convenient. Mr. Guy provided exceptional customer service and kept me informed during the whole process!

Made appointment for service yesterday. Very easy and quick. Robert gave me his name and told me to see him when I arrived. Upon arrival at 10 he greeted me an brought my vehicle in for diagnosis. Within half an hour came back and told me what they had found and what the cost would be.He said they could get me out by 1pm. At 12:30 I signed for the repair.and was on my way. Great service experience. The service manager Bob and advisor Robert were both friendly and professional. I definitely be back.
