Marti B. from Boise, ID, whose Pontiac was in for an auto repair, on 9/7/2015:
"I've been a customer of MIchael's for years. When my computer module broke down while in Moscow, dropping my daughter off to college, I called them for advice. The said I'd likely be okay to drive home, though I couldn't roll down the windows, had no AC, no stereo and the door locks quit working. Still, despite the discomfort it was awesome to get my Aztek into the shop and find out it could be repaired. I was expecting a week for the replacement computer module but it arrived much sooner and they got my rig in and back to normal, programmed and all is good with the world again. They always keep me apprised of progress on the rig every time I've had them do work. They've been my mechanic for 5 different vehicles and they keep them running."
