Excellent service-took my car in as an emergency after the starter motor caused me to breakdown. I was loaned a courtesy car, but my repair was completed within a day as they had the spare part handy. I have been taking my car to the Keys garage for 20 years, they are trusty-worthy, reliable, competitively priced and will go the extra mile for their customer\'s!! 5*
