"Great find. Have been taking my car for repairs and oil changes since. Excellent service & reasonable quotes compare to others for services I’ve needed. Highly recommend. Very pleased. Thank you Bob & Team."
"Tanella Auto replaced struts and shocks, lower control arms and rear break lines on a 2002 ford escape. Price was fair and competitive. A loaner vehicle was arranged for which was a stupendous convenience. We have had multiple vehicles maintained over a 15 year period and highly recommend them for their knowledge and scope of services provided. Thank you for your continued service and recommendations throughout the years."
"My Lexus had a steering issue and Bob was great. He was able to diagnose the issue and fix it that same day on a Saturday! Very honest and do great work! Highly recommended! A+"
"Tanela Auto Repair went above and beyond my expectations. I took my car in for a/c and cooling fan issues. They repaired my car in a timely manner and at a very reasonable price. I now have nice cold air while driving in my car. Bob was corteous and professional. Tanela has restored my faith in mechanics and I will continue to use them for any future repairs. Thank you Tanela! J. Gomez"
