"Great service. Got me in the day I needed. No complaints. "
2011 Mercury Mariner
"I have been a Doran King customer since the early '00s. Tom and his team have taken care of 4 of my cars over the years. They are professional, trust worthy, honest. I heard about them from a coworker, years ago. A quality mechanic is worth his weight in gold. They aren't "cheap," per se, but I don't think car parts/reliability/safety is where you want to cut corners anyway. I've recommended them to countless friends."
"Great service, trustworthy and honest! Super friendly staff and always has my car fixed when needed. I wouldn't ever consider going anywhere else! An awesome small business! Nice location too!"
"Take my 2001 Buick in for routine oil change and engine work. Always fast and great service. Tom up front is very knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend to anyone."
"After going to NTB in Highland for many years and starting to have poor service with recent visits, I decided to try local shop Doran King. So far so good! They seem upfront and fairly priced, also very quick to get me in and serviced. Have not seen them for anything major yet, but will certainly give them a call when I do!"
"Doran King gets an A+ for their small-town-in-a-big-city service. I forgot my wallet the day of my service, and not only did Tom do the service and let me call in with my credit card when I got home, but he also offered to lend me a few bucks so I could get a cup of coffee across the street while I waited."
