I was very impressed with The Shop and the staff. I went in to repair an oil leak and they went out of their way to make sure the leak was taken care of, and other problems were corrected. My 2005 G35 coup is now running the way I remember it use to. I am going to return my car to them next month to correct some electrical problems that I have. There we recommended to me, and I have recommended them to two other people since I starting dealing with them. I trust these guys with their work, and I look forward to rebuilding my car with them.

Exceptional service! I called them quite by accident when the dealership said they could not see me until mid June after my check engine came on. The owner, Steven Kelly, said come right over and we will diagnose the problem. I did and was completely at ease. Took my car in today and I can’t say enough good…a great bunch of guys (even though I had to walk there…LOL). I’ll never go anywhere else!!

Love the location by the Gaslight Square. Very easy and accessible for low cars. I called the day before and they squeezed me in for a quick alignment on my daily driver so I could ensure a clean bill of health on my end of year road trip. They even followed up a day after the service to get feedback on the alignment for satisfaction. This part I was not expecting them to do so it was nice to know they are hungry for continuous improvements. I have two other track performance-oriented cars that will be allowed to go there as they are a trusted place to be.

As a woman who has tried multiple automotive shops both chain and small, I cannot recommend The Shop enough. Their style of informing me what was going on with my 2011 VW Golf TDI was knowledgeable without mansplaining and was incredibly refreshing. This is a tip to toe mentality shared among the entire Shop, and you could tell they actually liked their jobs. Not common these days, but so nice to see. I have never felt more confident in my understanding of what is actually being worked on in my car and that the work being performed is of the highest quality. I will without a doubt be a lifelong customer. No one I'd trust more at this point.

Excellent service. Steven and company are super nice and take time to explain exactly if we need anything else done and why. Got our alignment, oil change, and a brand new battery installed for a very fair and accessible price. Our battery even got upgraded to a bigger one at no cost since the first battery installed seemed to not test well for whatever reason. It was a pleasure doing business here and we will definitely be back!!

I needed a new A/C put in my car after another shop was unable to finish it. The Shop not only got me in so promptly, but I had A/C running in my car by the end of the week. The value is definitely there! I am so grateful for their professionalism and attention to detail. I found my new automative maintence home!

I had a great experience getting my Jeep Grand Cherokee fixed up at the shop! The staff there were very knowledgeable and informative and I could tell they were looking out for me every step of the way. They gave me multiple options on repairs and bulb replacements and ended up getting me a great price on replacing my headlights. In the end it was FAR cheaper than what I was quoted at the Jeep dealership. I love supporting local businesses when I can and a trustworthy and competent mechanic is invaluable! I will certainly be taking all of my vehicles there for any future repairs!

Having a mechanic that is honest, knowledgeable, informative, and very easy to communicate with is priceless. Steven and his crew at The Shop are all these things. They did a couple of big jobs on my Honda Odyssey with great results. I had gone to a Honda dealer, who provided an estimate of repairs that for me, seemed excessive. I took it into The Shop and they gave it a once over. Helped trim out all the unnecessary work and beat the dealer on the cost of what did need to be done. If needed, I will confidently bring my family's vehicles and certainly give The Shop as a recommendation. Thanks and great work guys!

I knew I needed my brakes checked, and I work right next to The Shop, so I went over and asked if they could look at it. Going in, the vibe was already super fun. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. Steven greeted me at the desk, and we talked about possible repairs—then he told me to bring it by, they’d look at it, and if I wanted, they could start repairs right away and hopefully have them done that night! Once they knew what my car would need Steven walked over to let me know and talk it through with me. He was clearly very knowledgeable and he explained what my car needed and why it was important and how they were going to do it well. Brian was the tech, and he stayed late to get my repairs finished for me. Steven kept me updated the whole time. I picked up my car with new brake pads, rotors, and fresh calipers, and my little Hyundai has not driven better since I got her last year. They do oil changes as well, they’re super sweet and fun—definitely definitely go here if you need work on your car.

Had the unfortunate luck of having two of my vehicles breakdown in the same week. I took them both to The Shop, and very thankful I did. Steven and Jacob are extremely good at what they do, and made it a painless experience. Both were very knowledgeable and took valuable time to explain to me the items that needed to be repaired. I would highly recommend!
