I was looking for a quick, no hassle, state inspection today. And Lee made it happen fairly early today. Live close by so asked if I could wait on it, he said sure. Got there and found a clean, comfortable waitng area, and then offered me a hot, fresh cup of coffee to boot! The experienced mechanic that inspected my vehicle was very friendly, knowledgable, and professional.

I have been using Vidlers for all vehicle servicing for about 15 years, including buying tires. Bobby & Paul provide the BEST service!! I find them to be honest, friendly and always willing to help...like small-town neighbors. I never need to remember or worry about what servicing my 2003 SUV needs, as they send me reminders, let me make an appointment so I can wait while work being done and clearly explain what needs to be done prior to doing any repairs. I HIGHLY recommend Vidlers!!!

Took my truck in for a state inspection and everything was done in a timely fashion. Not only did they not try to sell me on any additional work (which may have been a first), but I asked thier opinion on some work I thought might need to be done and I was assured it wasn't a problem and could wait. Next time I have car issues, Vidlers is where I'm going.

Vidlers is the place to go for car repair! I once brought my Miata in for an inspection and in the process of doing the inspection, they discovered a damaged compression hose that had made the car run rough for quite a while. Simply being attentive to the car brought a problem to their attention. The car runs much better now and I could be more thankful. This is the only place I will take my car for work.
