“I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my car. I’ve been going to Rod’s for maintenance and repairs for about 3 years now and have not been disappointed once. They take the time to make sure their service isn’t just efficient and fast, but also friendly. My car is 17 years old and still runs beautifully. Great work!”
