 "Brian and his team are some of the most honest and understanding people I have meet in the auto repair industry. I continually take my vehicles to then and refer friends and family to their shop, I know they will be treated fairly and given a true estimate without any additional, unneeded service. Recently I took my girlfriends vehicle to Pepboys, since i was already getting maintenance related items from them. They came back with cost increase after cost increase on the car repair without giving me a certain answer on what the issue was. Took the same car to IAS and Brian and his crew came back with a point by point diagnostic on the whole vehicle with a detailed report on what was needed, They indicated the items that were needed right away and the items that could wait for a later date. Couldn't be happier with their service and integrity! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!" - Brian S.
