I typically get my oil changes done at Honda service centers, and I’m left waiting for hours. This was quick and an efficient use of my time, so I was very pleasantly surprised! I also liked that they told me the other repairs or fixes I would soon need, but didn’t pressure me to get it through them.

We were greeted as we were waiting in line and given a very accurate estimate of the wait time. The young man was professional, friendly, courteous.

after being told I really needed a transmission fluid change, I was told there was no port to access the drainage, which had to do with newer vehicles. 2012 Buick Lacrosse is not a newer vehicle, so I looked it up on YouTube and found the step by step. I told him where it was, but he insisted he had looked for it but could not find it.After he watched the YouTube video, he said he would not touch it because it involved lifting a component in the engine compartment to get to the refill. It looked super simple to me, so I'm going to do it myself. Just disappointing. I expect more from mechanics who offer this service and do this everyday.

Service has always been prompt and efficient. My only complaint is there always seems to be residual drip after getting services at this location. I have used this location very many times, and every time I get an oil change, I end up with spotting on my garage floor for a couple of days. Oil changes from my local mechanic do not produce the same results, so I am forced to wonder if there is just spillage in the engine compartment during the change when I use this location. Otherwise, service is great!

Guy took apart my glove box to replace the air filter. He damaged the hydraulic release and did not put it back in when finished. He was not aware of the part. Honest mistake but damaged the connector.

All the staff members did an excellent job of greeting me, explaining the services, quickly servicing my car, and were extremely friendly and efficient. Kevin was terrific as the lead person that worked with me.

Staff is very personable. I had a nail in my tire and it was noticed by staff when doing the tire rotation, he showed me it and let me know. I appreciate that.

The staff was super friendly, informative, communicated very clearly and often the status of their progress. They checked a filter for the interior cabin air that I don't think any mechanic has replaced before. Thank goodness as it was filthy. The incoming air is now fresh and healthy. Thank you for great service.
