    Excellent service on replacing my valve covers and recognizing the need to properly stretch the rubber valve cover gasket. I asked them to look at the exhaust system because I was hearing an unusual noise infrequently and the noticed the tail pipes rubbing up against my leaf springs. Good catch, so off to the installer of my exhaust system.

    Our Acadia was due for an oil change and we experienced a problem with our battery on a recent trip. Action Auto found a fault with the battery and replaced promptly. Also had a couple of filters replaced. We've been going to Action Auto for year and have always been dealt with honestly and respectfully. I highly recommend Action Auto for your vehicle service needs.

  • 6/12/17

    Dealing with the shop is always direct, straight forward and overall a quick and easy experience. They call within the first hour with any findings and what to expect. Great customer experience!

    I needed my brake switch repaired fast and that's what I got. They were reasonably priced and didn't try to get me to do repairs I didn't want done. Nice guys.

    My wife and I have been having our vehicles serviced at dealers for yeas,but I have found action auto the only place where if they tell me there is an issue I don't have to wonder if I'm being ripped off or not. They do amazing work and I will be bringing our family cars here to get serviced from now on. Thank you.

    My husband and I have been using Action Auto Repair for a couple of years now. What we like best is they fix what needs to be fixed correctly the first time. New things don't happen break a week later. The prices have been fair and in the case of my air conditioner, they gave me a three year warranty. Try to get that somewhere else.

  • 5/18/17

    I'm on my second new Subaru and I completely trust them with the maintenance (and repair if ever needed) and care of it. I was in for oil change, they give you a ride if needed or you can wait in their comfortable lobby. They have been my…

    My car is getting older now, so I don't want to keep taking it to the dealer for repairs, oil changes, etc. I wanted a local repair shop that I trust to fix only what's necessary and charge fairly. Not only did I find that shop, but the guys there are fun and friendly! And thanks to for feeding hungry children!

  • 9/1/16

    I've been going to Action Auto for many years and have always been treated with respect and honesty. All the employees are professional and more than happy to explain the work they've done & why. I've recommended this shop for years and will continue to do so.

  • 8/30/16

    Showed up unannounced at Action Auto to see if they could change the oil/filter. They were very busy but took the time to work me in to their schedule. I was finished in only 1 hour and on my way home. Fantastic service... Highly recommended.

    They did an excellent job. My car is now quieter and runs smoother than it has in a long time.

    Tom is the most honest mechanic I have ever known. Our entire family with 4 vehicles always put our trust in him. My suburban failed the emissions test for an electrical problem. It could have been a costly repair (or made into one) but Tom found the "fuse" replaced - no charge and had me back at the teting station the same morning! Wow Definitely the highest ratings from me!
