Fair prices. Good service. Treat you like family. Been going here (as well as the rest of my family) for over 25 years. Have referred a fleet of cars over here for service and they are still going. Purchased a vehicle and then my best friend purchased a vehicle from them. How often can you say you LOVE your mechanic???

All started when I bought a red corvette 5 months ago which I am still very happy with. during the negotiation everything went nice and smooth, they said that they were going to repair a few bit a pieces that I asked for and the car would be ready to be picked up in a week or so. I paid a 10% deposit and it was agreed that I would pay the balance when the car was ready. So a few days later I called to find out how the repairs were going and they said to not worry about that because the car would be ready by Saturday. I did show up on Saturday after an hour trip (I live 60 miles away) and I found out that none of the repairs we agreed were done, even worse they didn't remember what they had to do to the car!!!!! well, I am a very pacific and calm person so I explained again what had to be done and they agreed the car would be finished in a week. three days later Milton (the salesman) rang me up saying that some of the repairs I asked for couldn't be done because they needed new parts but instead they could give me $200 off the total price, we ended up agreeing $400 off which I was happy about and also get fixed the easy repairs. When I got there that Saturday they didn't do ANYTHING to the car, not even clean it but in any case I was decided to take the car because I loved that car. I paid the balance and as they didn't have car title there we signed a 'Vehicle/Vessel transfer form' so I would receive car title and registration later in a few weeks. I guess all the above could have happened with any other garage and never would have written a bad review about them but now it comes the worst part. After 5 months I HAVE NOT RECEIVED car title or registration whatsoever and after few days calling this Milton (Salesman) when he finally picked up my call he said to me that I have to do a smog check in order to transfer the car title to me, ARE YOU KIDING ME? so that means they have done nothing, they happily took my money and I have been driving someone else's car during the last five months????? Furthermore I had to pay this smog myself when actually I paid another smog to them five months ago so I have paid two smogs from my pocket to transfer this car to my title. They promised they were going to send me check for the second smog and guess what? They have sent no check to me. I don't wish any bad luck to any business but nowadays only professional and customer service orientated companies survive and this company it's nothing to do with it.

Been here before twice, the first time - there was a lady there getting her car serviced and the owner came out and hugged her - she told me she's been getting her car serviced through him for 20 years or so, good first impression, the Owner is great, his son is great - the mechanic is knowledgeable and very friendly. Has a real family vibe to it, and i dont mind waiting there for an hour or two sometimes watching their free cable TV. I'm usually skeptical about car repair places, but Herbs Won me over - good place, I recommend it. Jeff

Arman and now Darren have done a fantastic job taking care of our cars. Its nice to keep going back to the same person as they know the history of the car. At times they even do free work if its a minor thing. Darren also offers to take us home when I drop off the car. Great local auto mechanic.

Let me start out by saying I do love my new mini cooper that I got from Herbs and I do not regret swapping cars. But their service sucks and they are now avoiding my calls. It takes a lot to make me want to complain about a business and I am usually pretty understanding. But I believe this business deserves the review I am about to leave. I traded in my camry for a mini cooper about 2 months ago. It was an all-around easy transaction, it was pretty much an even swap. The mini had some dings that needed to be touched up and it needed new visor mirror covers. It was written into my contract that they would replace my visors, and Darren assured me that he would get new visors even after we told him that they could just replace the covers or the visors could be second hand, it didn't matter to me as long as they looked nice and the mirror lights were covered. The next day I took my car in and they fixed the dings (which was not written in the contact). The paint job was pretty good and I am happy with it. Now with the visors...3 or 4 weeks later I called Darren he said he had them in. I took my car in...apparently they didn't have them in and they were just planning to take them off 2 other mini coopers that they had. The funny thing is...they all happened to be broken and this wasn't checked before I brought my car in. So I got a free car wash. Then he told me he looked up the prices for new ones, it was $126 each for 2 new visors and that I would have to pay for one because it was too expensive and he couldn't find cheaper ones. That is not what was written into my contract. I then talked to Milton who said he would figure it out and talk to Darren and they would get them ordered. I have called 3 times now Milton is either not there or they leave me on hold for 10 minutes. I even had my boyfriend call to see if he could get through and as soon as he asked about the visors they then put him on hold for 7 minutes. After that I had my boyfriend research it as this is his area of expertise selling parts and what not at dealerships. What we found out is, it is $126 for a pair, $85 for just the mirror covers, or $85 for a pair of visors off ebay. So what Darren told me is bs. Through all of this I had never received a call back like I was told they would do and they never even called me to pick up my car when it had been painted. I give them one star because Herbs does not honor contracts, and I would not trust them with my car. UPDATE After I wrote this review...I surprisingly got a phone call saying they ordered them and that they were sorry Darren forgot to order them {obviously bs). But they would be there that Wednesday. I got another call two hours later saying that they already had them...weird. But the next day I called them again just to make sure they had them and got them put in that day. Second had and not broken...which is all I wanted. They still deserve one star after all the bs they put through just for SUNVISORS! and I still would not take my car here or recommend this place to anyone.
