Oil changees are cheap and quick!!! I recommend only for that. Any automotive repair, get ready to get "Bend" over. Will rip you off any chance they get.

Came in for an o2 sensor replacement. Mechanic spent 10 minute on it and charge me $95 for the service. When i was quoted $50, and I even purchased the part from somewhere else, and brought it.

Be WEARY!!!

My first experience with Bender's, was about four years ago. I had purchased an elderly motohome that needed a lot of care. I had taken the RV to another local mechanic and they ripped me off big time! When I took it to Bender's, they did the job correctly and also backed us up in getting a refund through the B.A.R from the shady mechanic. (It rhymes with "Mussels", NEVER go there!) Since then, they've earned my business. Nobody's perfect, but Bender's is a fair and honest place of business. Give them a chance!

Chris has always been honest and upfront with me.
Integrity is what I"ve always experienced with both Chris and Marlon. They have helped ensure that all three of our cars are in safe working order and have occasionally given us complimentary oil changes when we have had other work being done on our cars.
Great friendly service.

You know in life not everything is perfect, But we try. Hi my name is Chris the owner Im not making excuses but every car is different and the owners disicion of what to repaiar and what not to greatly changes the outcome of some repairs and of course when it doesnt work out for the consumer their upset. So we do our best to help out our customers with loaner vehicles and rides. As to Spike S it was a about a 22+ year old vehicle which parts are hard to come by and it needed alot of repairs. Now as to the worst experience she ever had. She came in for an oil service and my partner was using the drill press and the part got thrown and put a pencil eraser size ding in the door. I was not present at the time and my partner told her we would repair the door and rent her a car oh and did not charge for the lube. she went bullistic. When i returned I called her let her know we would have a body shop repair and paint the door and rent her a car she yelled at me and demanded to go thru my shop insurence. We had an estimate for 250.00 and a 2 day rental. This just goes to show what people are all about. tell the truth. CHRIS

When Oscar worked here, the work was fast and well priced. But now my car has been in and out of this place for a while. The work takes a long time. The work isn't always done well. The prices are higher than they should be. The staff seems to care very little about getting your car done and out of the shop. I'm not going to this place again because when you take your car there, they act like you're bothering them with it. My car has gone in for the same problem (which they claimed to have fixed) a couple of times. Not to mention them saying that it would be fixed on Monday, so we called Monday and it wasn't finished. A few weeks later, that's when it was finished. Or to mention that they ignore what you think is wrong, and in so don't order the parts that you know need to be ordered, and it doesn't get done because "it'll take too long to order them". Overall, if you have time to kill and don't want your car to be treated like it should, go here.
The only good review for this place was in 2004, when it was owned by Oscar. Be weary of this place, you'll be glad you did.

I took my car to this shop for a simple oil change and left with $1200 in body damage.
After I was assured by their staff I would be reimbursed for the repairs and a rental car, 6 weeks later I am still trying to recover my costs.
The owner has been uncooperative from the start.

Chris and Marlon are by far the best mechanics I've ever encountered. I don't know much about cars and always find myself falling victim to paying too high for things i don't even really need fixed :( Not only were they extrememly fair in price, theydid not take advantage of me and they had my car done in the quickest time I've ever experienced. All in all no one wants to take their car to get fixed, but they made it a completely positive experience!
