"I have been taking my vehicle to Kerber Automotive for the past 5 years and I am most appreciative of Mike and his team. They are friendly and honest (which is important to me) and Mike will take the time to explain what is going on with your vehicle. They use quality parts and stand by service performed on your vehicle. Mike is good at letting you know about repairs that need to be addressed immediately and the repairs that you make have a bit of time, this allows you to plan ahead. I would highly recommend using Kerber Automotive." —Sherie W., 4/13/2016 via Google+

Updated: "I recently took our 2005 Nissan Murano into Mike because of an oil leak. While it was there he found that our serpentine belts were cracked. This could have done serious damage to our engine if they broke while we were driving. He also noticed our hood shocks no longer kept the hood up - another potential and dangerous injury. Thank you Mike for discovering these two things. This is the second time Mike has worked on our vehicles and I was pleased with his work. While I was there I noticed that he knows his customers and takes good care of them. His personal touch is why his customers come back to him for their automotive needs." —Dale M. 1/21/16 via email
