My truck required engine work after the truck overheated. After analyzing the problem Ryan contacted me with details outlining what went wrong and what needed to be replaced. I was provided with a cost and expected completion date. The service manager kept me updated regularly and when other problems were discovered I was notified immediately with any additional costs and adjusted completion dates. I appreciated being kept up to date. The work came with a warranty and my first impression is the truck is back to normal. Based on my experience, I would recommend JS Automotive repair services. It is great having a reliable auto repair service close by. Thank you.
