They had to do some updates to my car that we’re on recall. I was having trouble with the cruise control but they said I was doing it wrong. I got there at 10 o’clock he said it would be done by 11:15. I didn’t get out of there till 12:45. They said the car was being washed, I asked that they please dry it but they didn’t and they could’ve washed 10 cars for as long as it took them to wash mine. So I wasn’t as happy with the service department as I usually am. Took much too long for what they had to do

Went in to get an oil change. Left with brand new brakes. Typically I don't go for any other recommendations they talked to me about. Always seemed like they're just trying to get more money. But Anthony B was excellent in explaining and showing me why I needed them. He wasnt pushy on having front and rear brakes done. He recommended just doing front since he new I had to work. I told them just to get both sets done. After he talked to the mechanic he said they could get it it done in 1.5 hrs. Anthony checked on me, seemed like every 15 minutes, always giving me updates which was great. Even had a porter take me to get lunch. Anthony's customer service was excellent. I will definitely be returning because of him.
