“ Simply the best mechanic I have ever done business with. Honest reliable and more than fair pricing. I have a 30 year old Wagoneer and Thom treats it like a new car.

This is my third truck that Thom has worked on and his service has always been at the same level. Good mechanics are hard to come by great ones are impossible to find, this is why Thom's always has a shop full of customers. Greg's a great manager and Jen runs a great front desk. “

"First I would like to say that I only take my 98 Jeep Cherokee to Thom's 4 Whee Drive repair shop. I purchased it 3 years ago and entrusted Thom's to help me get it right. It needed so much work. Thom and Greg came up with a game plan and now it is running and driving like I expected it to with these top mechanics working on it. From oil and lube to major repairs, this is the shop for quality work with a personal touch of a wonderful staff. Thanks to Thom's"

"I appreciated the fact that I was kept in the loop the entire time throughout the repair process. Thom's was able to diagnose the issue with my Jeep after it had been to two other shops, one being a Jeep dealer for 8 days with no fix. Thom's diagnosed the issue in one day and had my car back quickly and the price was within the estimate range."

"Listened to my vehicle issues and made the right recommendations. I've worked on my truck before and fairly familiar with issues, the problem is I don't have a garage, tools, or the time. I appreciate when as a customer the garage fixes what needs to be fixed and keeps communication open throughout the process. Great job. Keep up the hard and honest work!"
