  • “A first rate operation. Had a complete 4 wheel brake service including all new rotors, an oil change/filter, air filter, plus general checkup at a reasonable price. These are knowledgeable, skilled mechanics. Plus good coffee and high speed internet if you want to wait. Highly recommended.” – Patrick N.

  • “I brought my son’s 1987 BMW 325is into the shop for repairs and was greeted by JP with a welcoming and comforting attitude. My son just got his driver’s license and his first car. JP and the A-1 crew took care of everything needed in an efficient and timely manner and at a very reasonable cost. Since the car is almost 30 years old JP set us up with a list of car repairs in order of priorities. I would recommend everyone to bring their vehicles to A-1 for the best service and the best staff around!!!!!” – James C.
