Exceptional customer service. I’ve never actually used their shop or purchased a car from here, but I spent an hour talking with the owners (John Sr. in person and Lindsay was on speaker phone with us) to try to decide between fixing my vehicle or trading it in for a new used one from them. Very generous with their time and knowledgeable. Not pushy in the least. I would return for future car needs. Thank you for your help!

Great business and super family oriented. They have never made me feel weird for being a woman, which is not true of some other shops I have been to out there. There has been a change in ownership recently and I hope it will stay this way. Prices are also quite fair and service is great!

I have been dealing with Special interest for about 10 years and their service and staff are amazing. They never try to up sell or mislead you in what your vehicle actually needs. They go beyond what is required of them and their customer service is excellent. This is the first time I have ever written a review but I felt the need to after reading the prior one. Try them out you will not be disappointed .

Staff were friendly. Rates very competitive, and most importantly – the quote/estimate was honest. I assumed I needed my brakes replaced. After inspection, they informed me that they only needed to be cleaned and serviced, and for a fraction of the cost. Will definitely return for future service needs.
