Dave and his crew are the best! when ever you ask them when can you get me in? The answer is bring it in and we will take care of it! And some how they do! They do all my maintenance on my truck and it is always done in a timely manor, and let me just say my truck is important in my job so timing is very important and they have always hit their mark. the first time i dropped my truck off i knew they would do work on all my vehicles! companies make it on workman ship, quality and service and believe me they hit all three! thanks Dave and family!!

I was able to get an appointment on the day that was most convenient for me. I dropped off my car and Cecilia shuttled me to my office. Once the work was completed, Cecilia picked me up from my office and drove me back to the shop. Beau had me in and out in a matter of minutes. My Lexus runs better than ever! I do not trust anyone else than Dave and his team at Toole's Garage! Thank you for giving me and my wife peace of mind! P.S. In honor of my birthday, the shop gave me a certificate for a free oil change! That's cool!

Friendly, polite, and trustworthy staff. I've talked to Beau, Dave, and their mechanic and have an understanding of the necessary work before and after the repairs. Reasonable rates. They take good care of my vehicles. I always do some research online and look for good reviews for services and recommendations. I would recommend this shop, Toole's Garage. Give them a call.

Great honest service. No pressure. Dave and Beau clearly explained the issues with my car and the downside to not fixing them right away. They also prioritized which ones should be addressed first providing me an option to not have everything fixed at the same time. Photos and videos of my car were emailed to provide proof of issue at hand. I don't know much about cars so it was important to me to not feel like I was being asked to fixed non essential issues which were hitherto unknown to me. And the Toole men provided me with that honest, trustworthy feeling. The repairs were completed on time.

This team is the best. The family is warm and receptive. Helpful and concise when explaining stuff about my car. The prices are reasonable and the work is done with impeccable care. My Prius runs and feels almost brand new after 150000 miles. This thanks to the staff at Toole's Carage. I want to find something wrong with my car so I can go back to the shop for a chat about cars and life.

I had them look at 2 vehicles. one they fixed and the other they confirmed my diagnoses so I could return a defective part I purchased at Car Quest. The first problem they fixed was also due to bad parts from Car Quest. Get the job done right the first time and go to Tooles. I m glad I did. By the way no charge on the diagnosis!!!! These guys get my business.

I just moved to the area and needed to get my timing belt changed on my Subaru. I got quotes from several shops in the area and when I called Tooles about a quote they recommended that I actually bring the car by for a free in-person (in-car?) inspection so they could give a better quote. I admit, when they recommended that I bring the car by for a quote I was a bit annoyed and assumed that they were trying to get me to the garage so they could try to hook me into getting it worked on right then and there before I had time to shop around for other quotes - I have had that happen in the past. Despite my misgivings, I brought my car by for a quote and happily discovered that I was incorrect about their motives. Beau and Cecilia impressed me with their friendliness and openness (they even offered to show me around the back of their garage, which most places in my experience will not do). The quote Beau gave me was detailed and included things that would definitely be replaced, as well as those items that might need to be replaced depending on their condition. I appreciated having all of the information before I committed to getting my car worked on there. Beau asked if I wanted to make an appointment for the timing belt service, but did not try to convince me to do so immediately. When I took the car in for service they gave me a complementary ride home and the guy who drove me home was friendly and we had a great conversation on the way there (unfortunately I do not remember his name). When they started working on my car they discovered that my radiator was leaking. Normally this would have been a red flag, but I have been smelling coolant lately, though I had not noticed a drop in coolant levels. Luckily my car is still under extended warranty. When I informed Beau of that he took care of talking with the insurance company and getting my radiator covered! I really appreciated that they dealt with that particular hassle. Unfortunately they were not able to get the new radiator in immediately, so I had to go the weekend without my car, but Tooles offered an extremely affordable rental for the weekend, and called me several times to update me on the timeline for getting my car fixed. The service was great and everyone I interacted with was both friendly and helpful. I cannot say anything about the longevity of their work, as this was my first experience with them, but they do back all of their service with a great warranty! I'll definitely be coming back the next time my beloved car needs any work.

Ever wonder how important shocks and struts are to your vehicle? Worn shocks and struts equal uncontrolled tire movement.  This can decrease vehicle control, wear other components and cause tire cupping.  Not to mention new shocks and struts give you a better ride!

Why is there a pinkish red puddle in my parking spot? If you are asking yourself this question, you may have an automatic transmission fluid leak. The ATF is mostly red in color. Your best bet is to get your vehicle in for a check up to find out what may be leaking. Replacing a transmission is a major repair so make sure you keep your trans in great shape by checking your fluid at every service and doing a "transmission fluid change" at proper intervals. This small service will save you a large repairs in the long run. #transmissionrepair   #autorepair   #maintenance

Have you had tires at Costco? Well, at Toole's we are able to handle the "wheel alignment" for you. We also mount and balance tires as well. If you need new tires, we are your one stop shop! A wheel alignment keeps your tires from wearing out quickly or unevenly. With our Hunter Equipment, the best equipment on the market, we will get your car done right, the first time! #wheelalignment   #newtires   #autoawesome
