The key to a smooth running vehicle is without a doubt proper maintenance. So who do you turn to?

In a January 22, 2015 article Make Your Car Last. Independent vs. Dealer Shops for Car Repair Consumer Reports noted the following; “For most of us, taking the car to the mechanic ranks right up there with getting root canal surgery. But there’s a way to ease the pain. Our latest survey of repair satisfaction found that when your car is ailing, odds are that you’ll be more satisfied with an independent repair shop than with a franchised new-car dealership.” Food for thought, in our opinion it’s been proven time and time again for our clients.
