"Jeff and his crew did a great job, was very responsive and transparent, and performed their service at great price"
2007 Chevrolet Cobalt
"Easy to work with, and very trust worthy. What I had done want anything he, but it was necessary. They did a good job keeping my 10 year old car running."
2010 Infiniti G37 Sedan
"Clean shop. Great price. Honest. Very accommodating. Taking your far to be repaired is not fun, but if it needs to be done this is the place to go. I will be returning. "
"If I could give the place zero stars I would. I looked around for a shop with good reviews to take my boat to. Of course I could taken it to the big shops, but as a small business owner myself I look at trying to support other small businesses. I called up Jeff and asked if he works on Mercury Verados. He tells me yes. I schedule a time and bring it in. Repaired in 3 days. Fair enough. I stop by to pick it up and asked him what all he did. He says he changed out the impeller and did an oil change. Impeller would address my overheating issue, but I also told him I had a sputter almost like misfiring at WOT problem. He assured me it was impeller related. I go to pay and he charged me $800 for the service. This is a ripoff for the services he performed. I'm no marine mechanic but I know enough that oil, impeller kit, and labor does not amount to $800. I thought to myself whatever so long as the motor is fixed. Knowing his prices are this high I will not use him in the future. Reason I decided to write this review is fast forward 2-3 days to Saturday. I go on the lake and problem is still there. Overheat alarms goes off, and sputter/misfiring same as before I took it in. I don't even trust that he changed the impeller at this point. I take the boat to Cabelas and for them to change the impeller and the impeller kit, only runs $250. Also sputter was caused by misfiring of the plugs. Cars I don't know. Older outboards maybe. For anything fuel injected or newer like mine, this guy and his shop have no idea how to work on them. Please avoid this place and save yourself the headache. As you can see he is not the cheapest either. Response to owner. You must have me confused with another customer. Please post the bill in which you are talking about. I have the receipt which you gave me. I will gladly post mine on here as well if you wish. Bill was $800 and some change. You said if I paid cash you would give me a price break in which I did, and we ended up settling at $775.00. Sorry to say but my review is fair. I have a copy of the receipt signed, dated, and marked Pd Cash $775.00 by you."
"They have done work on my boat, family cars and an old classic. Always great work, super easy to work with!"
"Jeff and Cody took great care of me today. My side mirror had fallen off in an accident about 4 months ago and I had been putting off getting it fixed because of the time it takes to fix it and I didn't want to be without my car. I had contacted Jeff just a few days ago about getting an estimate. Within an hour of sending him my information he had an estimate for me and within 2 days the part was in. He sent me an email asking for my availability. I gave him a 1 hour window I had free today. Jeff made it work! I went to the shop and it took less than 30 minutes to put on. Professional and efficient are two fitting words for Auto & Marine Buddies. I'll refer anyone I come across to them and they will always have my own personal business! Thank you!"
"My family and I have used Auto and Marine Buddies over the past several years when we have needed some major work on our vehicles and we are so happy a friend referred us to them. They are so helpful, honest, fair and easy to work with. Car trouble is stressful and it is the last thing I want to worry about and they make it so easy. Not to mention our vehicles have looked brand new when they have completed them. So happy and I feel as though everyone there really cares about the work and detail they do. Thank you so much Jeff and team! Took my stress away!"
"Car looks perfect! They gave me a fair price and a quick turn around. Highly recommend them, no problems at all. Friendly staff too. A+"
