Customer Testimonials

"They've helped me keep my 95 mercury Tracer going. It's a good little car. They specialize in rebuiding cars so they're very good about details." Deb June 14, 2010

"I recently had to have a CV rebuilt for my Jeep and had a wonderful experience dealing with Auto Plus. They did the work in an efficient and cost-effective manner. I needed the part back before the snow hit so I could have four-wheel drive again and the work was completed in two days. The people working there are friendly and will help as much as possible. I would highly recommend this hard-working, honest company."  Jackie December 3, 2008

"I've been going there since they opened over 11 years ago.  They have been fast, reasonably priced and even give me a ride back home when needed.  Mike & Jim will take great care of your car!"   Sue  August 18, 2010
