“I have to say that this is the best place to service your vehicle. Tim explained thoroughly every step they did to my car. He was patient, kind and very professional. Even the young man who brought my car around was very courteous. They charged less than half what another establishment quoted me! I can’t praise them enough!!”
“My first experience with Ernie’s was on a 2018 Equinox with a bad fuel pump that the dealer would not take care of. Tim was an amazing source of information and professionalism. The shop is now working on my 2007 Dodge Charger because I trust them with the work I can’t do on my own. “
Frequently Asked Questions
IS THERE A COST FOR DIAGNOSIS OF THE REPAIR NEEDS OF MY CAR?
Because vehicles are so complex and becoming even more so as more technology is incorporated into the vehicles, it takes time to pinpoint exact problems and therefore we do charge for diagnostics. We don’t like to guess about a repair.
WHAT KIND OF WARRANTY COMES WITH Your AUTO REPAIR WORK?
Our nationwide warranty has a 24-month/24,000-mile peace-of-mind warranty that covers parts and labor.
HOW LONG WILL THE AUTO REPAIR TAKE?
Vehicles are a complex piece of equipment that we have to diagnose, and the repair time will vary depending on how extensive the repair is. Accurate diagnosis is an integral part of pinpointing and performing a repair, and also requires additional time.

We offer 3 discounts: senior, military and AAA. Our customers may use only one of those discounts per visit.
