Awesome people and service
They didnt take long, I got the help I needed to get the part changed on my car, now my car driving better with out powersteering issue. I recommend these guys here over anyone else.
They really bailed us out of a jam. Our starter went out while pulling a trailer and AAA couldn’t find anyone to tow us and the nearest Mercedes dealership was almost an hour away. They came and towed the car, drove my mom to the Uhaul to rent a truck, and then fixed the car the next day and its running great! They even put the floor back together where I had replaced the battery. Really great people! Stacy and Virginia were awesome!
