"Warped Honda Pilot rotors were replaced by Bob with a new set of Cooper tires and my 2009 Pilot brakes perfectly. No more shaking when braking. Seems Bob fixed what Honda could not or would not fix. Honda Owners should see Bob."
- John McLinn
"I just had my 2005 Nissan Armada worked on by Bob and his very talented mechanics. The service was fast and Bobs assesment of my vehicle was spot on. His prices were more than fair which is what you want in these tough economic times. My experience with Tanela was excellent and i will be recommending this shop to all who ask where they can get great auto service at a good price."
- Collin Palmer
"Extremely pleased with this repair shop. Fair prices, great service. Been looking for a neighborhood auto repair that I can trust and hit the mark on this one. Bob is available for any questions, explains in detail and is very easy to work with. We've taken two different vehicles (2008 Honda Accord, 1999 Nissan Maxima) to Tanela over the last year and both were fixed right the first time for a fair price."

"My husband Sean had his car repaired recently at Tanela's. They did a great job fixing everything. He had his struts, stabilizer bar, battery, and serpentine belt either replaced or repaired. The car was taken care of in a responsible amount of time and runs perfect now! We are very pleased with the work done and will recommend this auto shop to anyone looking for quality work done at reasonable prices. We will definitely go back in the future! Thanks again guys!!!"
- Shelley Wilson
"I have never fully trusted auto people but when I found Bob and his team I was over whelmed with the honesty and respect that they have for not only the cars the work on but there clients. I will never take my car or my husbands to any other dealer. I can say enough nice things for this place."
- Kathy K.
"We were in town from Iowa and had RV troubles. Even though it was inconvenient and awkward to service, Bob had us back on the road in time to make the Cubs game that afternoon. Even provided us with a loaner while he worked, so we did not miss our vacation time! His prices are fair, he is knowledgeable and helpful, and he truly seemed to care that we were fixed up....even though we were out of towers!!! He even called us on Monday morning to ensure we had made it home okay! I would NEVER HESITATE TO RECOMMEND this shop to anyone!"
