Vince and the men at ROAC are so very knowledgable that their ears can detect the problem! I was kept aware daily of the progress on my major repairs, which is superb customer service. Hopoe to not need them for a while, but will go right back when I do!

The staff at River Oaks Auto center were very helpful. They provided the services that were only needed and advised me on items that were barely surfacing but could be postponed without negative repercussion. Pricing was fair and service was great.

I appreciate the prompt and courteous service. Thank you very much! I do have to admit, however, that the cost seemed high to me. I don't really know, of course. But I do know I was quite surprise when the requested repair was quoted and also others recommended. I think I need to become better informed!

The service area, partially visible from the waiting room, appears sparkling clean. The service itself was excellent, with certain extra items suggested with no high-pressure to purchase. A request for an estimate on some body work was given in minutes; it was reasonable...and, again, there ws no pressure to purchase. The waiting room itself is extremely clean and comfortable (it's obvious that special care is even taken with the reading materials, since they are in great condiiton, even tho' most appear to be at least a couple of years old...a minor and rather humorous "flaw", and the worst i could think of).Vincent Trainor, Operations Manager, could not have been more courteous or kind. Even the young service rep who brought my car around when it was ready was friendly and even complimentary about my messy little car. All in all, the best automotive service experience i've had in many a year!

I think that your business and employees are very knowledgeable and professional and I would take my car to ROAC again and recommend your business to my friends You all did a wonderful job on my car inspection and you were able to complete it professionally and quickly. My only complaint is that I own a Lexus and ROAC do not have a supply of nitrogen for Lexis tires. My dashboard light indicated low tire pressure.

This place is awesome--they stayed open an extra hour to fix my car--I got two new tires and a new belt. They also fixed some other things (a rubber tube that stuck out, added more brake fluid, etc) and didn't charge me extra. I had a small leak that they told me would have cost $1600 to fix, and they said they it wasn't worth the money to get it fixed so they told me not to. Everyone there was friendly and honest--they showed me my car and explained what was going on so I understood it. I will definitely come back here again.

After taking my car elsewhere in town and having my headers screwed up trying to figure out what was wrong, Pete diagnosed the issue. This was the most inexpensive fix there was. Because of this I saved myself about $3500 that the other shop was trying to get me to pay, instead of $125 at River Oaks Auto. Thanks and the guys couldn't have been nicer or easier to deal with.
