    I have had nothing but expert service from this company. I have 7 vehicles that have been worked on and each time the work was flawlessly completed. I trust them, and would not hesitate to recommend them to my family and friends. They have earned my confidence.

    I've been having work on my BMW for about a year and couldn't be more pleased. They're honest, professional and have very fair prices. I'll never take a chance on another garage!

    I'm a very satisfied customer and have recommended Spirit to a number of friends who feel the same. The prices are fair, the work exceptional, and the mechanics competent and friendly. Thanks to Jim and the staff for the great service.

    Brought my 82' lancruiser in to replace smog pump. Brought my own part. He replaced it and I returned home. Within hours my smog pump had power steering fluid all over it! The next day I had no power steering at all! I called and alex said to come in to take a look. He first told me it was the resevoir only, then said it was a washer, than said it was the whole pump. He pointed out to me that my radiator hose which I replaced a year ago, was sitting against my power steering pump and slowly melting. Now I don't think driving around for a year with a radiator hose slowly melting would have lasted a year. Something changed. I asked him, "you said it was the washer, then the pump, which is it?" His direct quite back to me was "I don''t want to deal with it, you have a nice day, and he wasled away. After calling around town for other opinions, I was told by the place that replaced my radiator hose that what he did was not tighten the brackets which both the steeering pump and smog pump share, thus making my power steering pump shift and leak, and rub against my radiator hose. It now is clear, he realized trhis shortly before telling me he didn't want to deal with it. Go SOMWHERE ELSE!!!!!

    this customer purchased his own part, all we did in our shop was rr his own part we did not have to take his power steering off to install his pump or any ps lines,sorry we could not please this person but he just could not undestand that we never had to do anything with his power steering unit at all.

    Jim Bisharat's staff of expert mechanics at this gas station are great to work with. their expertise on most makes of vehicles and their caring attitude makes this the repair shop to use. In addition to brakes and other repairs, he will also do those 30,000/60,000/90,000 services that are so expensive at car dealership service departments. The work is always done right and Jim stands behind all of those repairs.

    Spirit was recommended to me. My tire flatten one night. Dangerously hobbled home. Replaced with spare, drove over to Spirit. Dropped to damaged tire, Went to my appointment on time. Jim/Alex ordered two tires and replaced them when I returned while I took a lunch break. Also check out my car at the same time. Thanks so much.
