  • "They have worked on three of my vehicles now and I have never been disappointed with the work. Great customer service and maintenance technicians."

    Gena Zie
  • "98° day climbing Idaho’s mountains outside Coeur D’Alene. Transmission gave out on my RV on I-90 W. Got towed to Lake City and they let us stay in our RV in front of their property and they also let us drive a loaner car. I was thinking the transmission work was going to costs thousands...only $500+ and they finished the work when they told me it would be completed. I can see why their shop is so successful."
