I went in to get some work done on 2/1/2011. They gave me a price, then called me later to give me another higher price. Then they kept my car for two more days. Obviously
they did not know what they were doing because they returned it the same. This is very uneccepatable and i had to pay on top of that. The service advisor's name was JOSH
HUGHES!!! Watch out. The review that was last posted was probably somebody that worked there. beacause that is not true!!

Ficks Auto Shop has been out of business since July, 2006. The review dated 1/26/06 probably had every right to be mad. The Auto Shop did not open until 10/1/06 with new ownership. The second review is probably not accountable. I have never had a bad experience with the owner or the service writer. The shop is the cleanest shop I have ever seen for being an auto shop. The atmosphere was very pleasant and comfortable. The second review by he/she probably is just a complainer and probably needed to be thrown out with the "Hoop-tie". There are just some people that you can not make happy and their car probably was a "Hoop-tie". They have very good prices and would recommend them to everyone.

The owner and service writer were both rude and condescending. The language used to describe the service was misleading and the car wasn't even ready but they let us get all the way there to tell us the mechanic was out sick. When asked to describe the invoice they were instantly argumentative and defensive. The owner ended up calling our car a "hoop-tie". I'm not even sure what that is but I have NEVER been treated so badly and I would warn people to stay away- I'd rather pay more at a place that treats you well and answers your questions with out all the double talk and attitude.

The engine was not bolted in properly. The air conditioner no longer worked. The wires on my dash were crossed "brake light, oil light, engine light". The car took more than a week longer than promised. The owner LIED to me and told me a part he had sent out to be machined wasn't ready yet, so I called the machine shop, the mechanic had just dropped it off that morning, 4 days AFTER the owner said he had sent it in! Needless to say I don't feel comfortable driving my car and I no longer take it out of town, I don't trust it, my car is now for sale. BUYER BEWARE....

PROS: Absolutley NOTHING!
CONS: Read the review...
