Lisa & Mollie X. from Bellingham, WA, whose Toyota was in for an auto repair, on 7/9/2015:
"Rod's Japanese Auto Care has some of the best customer service I have experienced. Every single person that my family or I talked to was extremely helpful and very patient. Coming from a college student with a very limited budget, the employees at Rod's were not only very honest, but also very understanding and enthusiastic to help me. Should any car problems arise among myself or others, I will absolutely be referring them to Rod's."

Dave & Jan P. from Ferndale, WA, whose Toyota was in for an auto repair service, on 7/8/2015:
"The service was quick and well done. I do need more servicing, but didn't want it yet.
They were very agreeable to do the other work at a later date, and said they'd keep watch
so I'd know when it was absolutely necessary.
Thank You Rod and Brittany and staff!
