"Shadetree is just awesome. They have done repairs on a few of our vehicles over the years. I needed my daughter's car fixed while I was out of town and they fit her in while, extremely busy, and got it fixed at a reasonable price, with great service. They also support local sports teams."
"I can’t say enough good things about ShadeTree. Rodd and Dan are some of the kindest and honest auto mechanics I’ve ever encountered. I have brought two of my vehicles to them over the years, and when something goes wrong with my car I know exactly who to call. They aren’t trying to take advantage of anyone or overcharge for services like some places and dealerships always do. They are also super fast! I highly recommend ShadeTree and will always trust them with my vehicles."
"This is the best place to take my car for service. Dan is a wonderful person to assist you, tell you info and always let you know costs and when it's ready to pick up...I will always suggest Shadetree to others!!!🤗"
"The best place to have your car service or repaired. Amazing customer service"
