"Glenn helped me keep my old 92 Nissan Maxima running through 225,000 miles. He can explain what needs to be done and why. Not only is he an excellent mechanic he is also totally trustworthy. Takes care of all of our family's cars and has work finished when promised. Recently Glenn saved me from having to rent a car by replacing a failed oxygen sensor before I had to go to work at 9am. The other techs in the shop are also great mechanics and have been there for a number of years. Free coffee a nice waiting area, clean bathroom and surroundings. I would highly recommend Glen and his shop"
