Excellent Service! Our Blazer took a crap on us while driving down 1st St. and we had walked over to see about getting some help. We had no money to pay at the moment and asked if someone could tell us where to start. Woody took a look and tried to fix it for us free of charge. It turned out to be a fuel pump issue and could not be fixed that day. We had just moved to the area and had no one to call to take us home. Woody offered to give us a ride down the street to our apartment. Woody will be getting my business form now on. Highly recommended!
First, I'll note that the vehicle I was getting fixed is a mid-90's Ford Explorer - starting to get a bit old....
I have not had this type of experience with an auto repair shop in a very long time. I spoke with someone, asked if they could look at my brakes and have the car back on a certain day. He said "no problem." And guess what? They kept their word. Wow!
They fixed exactly what they said they would - no more and no less. The estimate was right on. And they gave me some great advice and details on my vehicle to help with future repairs or service. They understood that this is not a car you throw a bunch of money into - it's just a good, dependable car that I want to keep running.
The shop isn't huge or exactly modern-looking, but it is clean and utilitarian. The work was done quickly and as inexpensively as I could have hoped for. I'll be coming back to Woody's.
