Char A. from Oswego, IL, whose 8 was in for an auto repair, on 9/17/2014:
"I would tell them that Mike can be trusted and would not try and sell you repair service not needed. He would also tell you if a necessary repair was not worth fixing as too much was wrong with the vehicle and you should not sink any more money into it. I moved out of the area and tried another place for an oil change. Manager told me I needed this and that. I felt this person to be untrustworthy and went back to Godings. Turns out I did not need repairs stated by other shop."

"A neighborhood garage where you and they are on a first name basis. Very professional work - high integrity - but more important, they are a consultant service, presenting options, recommending repairs (such as "we probably should replace your front brakes before the winter driving season"). They take care of all our worries about car repair - you talk to them anytime, in person, on the phone ... they always make time for their customers! An A+ 5-Star shop in every way!"
