Great place for car inspections/oil changes and general mechanic work. The prices in this place are reasonable and I have not ever felt like they were trying to pull a quick one on me like many other mechanic shops. Keep up the good work guys!

I am very happy with their service. Basically you can say that you have a peace of mind .once you are there wait for the job and you’re out when it is done you don’t have to worry about anything. You can definitely say they are good people.

I always recommend this place to everyone I know. They are so trustworthy and have fair pricing. As a young woman I always get nervous in car shops but they always answer all of my questions and I know I can trust them to take care of my car.

They're FAST, fairly priced, and remember us by name every time we come in!!!! We've recommended Bare Bones to tons of friends, with cars ranging from SUV, hatchback, luxury vehicles, vans--you name it. They're the best--truly. I don't EVER leave reviews, but they've really been THAT excellent to work with!!!! -Meg Bonskowski
