“I am very impressed with ABS. Their customer service is great and I never feel pressured when they have made recommendations. They are fast and thorough and even scheduled me when they were overbooked. I have shopped around and I feel like they are honest with their work and their prices. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for good auto repair!”

“I was a walk in early that morning with the intention to leave my car since I did not have an appointment. Greeted upon entry by Mark. I told him I needed my spark plugs changed and brakes redone. I also said I wanted a state inspection and oil change. He said he would have the mechanic work on my vehicle. I received phone calls with updates as to what they found and when my service was completed. I will definitely use them again. I did not need spark plugs or brakes. I trust them and appreciate that they did not charge me for services that I did not need just to make money. I will go back to them for my next oil change and have my spark plugs changed at that time. Extremely professional company.”
