Very Professional
Very professional, and they did the job right the first time. It was a big job and as they were deeply involved they also took care of some other issues they found. They did researched for both new and used parts that were a good value and helped with giving wisdom to the best choice to make. The team is great and it is the cleanest shop you will ever find. That tells me they take pride in their work. Dave, Bill and Team...great job!

Above in Their Efforts
The problem with my truck was a tricky one to diagnose. Dave, Bill, and their team went over and above in their efforts to find and correct the trouble. I appreciate the fact that they were willing to put in the extra effort. My truck now runs great, and I am very satisfied with the level of service I received at their shop.

Thorough & Friendly
I always struggle when I have to find a place to take a car for repairs. Fortunately, my father in law had taken his vehicles to Midland Automotive for work and was very happy with the service he had received there. So, when my fuel pump when out I had my car towed to Midland. They replaced the pump and I had them do a bunch of other work that needed to be done, too. Now my 2001 Suburban with 208K miles on it runs like a top again. They were very thorough and friendly. I've found my go to place for future car repairs. Thanks guys!! Great job!!
