Customer Reviews
Gayla on 2/15/2015:
"Rod's customer service is excellent and I've always been happy with their work."
5 star rating

Sara J. from Lynden, WA, whose Kia was in for an auto repair service, on 1/25/2015:
"From the first time I stopped in, needing an emergency wiper replacement in a snowstorm, to the multiple times I've been back for oil changes and repairs to my 12 year old car, I've been treated like family. The service is always fast, reliable and done for the estimate. Everyone in the shop is courteous and friendly, and they explain what they had to do and why, and also recommend other services that should be done within 3-6 months to avoid breakdowns--but never pressure! So glad that my wiper broke that first time, so I ended up at Rod's! Recommend them to everyone."

Ken from Vancouver Bc on 12/30/2014:
"I discovered Rod's business online, which had references from Whistler BC. A local auto shop never heard of the type of cylinder head gasket that I was after (as a result of own research) - so it was to my delight that I came across Rod online and the warranty is significant for me, enough to tolerate crossing the border to maintain the inspection (2x a year). The technician and Brittany stayed a tad past closing time just so I could have the car same day - thanks for that folks - highly recommended."

Jacob L. on 12/30/2014:
"My car was fixed for me quickly, I am not used to getting my car back from any shop so fast. The quoted price was reasonable I thought yet it was fixed for less than expected. I have another car that needs to come in to the shop too, and I am sure it will be fixed just like my Honda, stress free and not for an arm and a leg."

"Great Company, amazing staff. Hard to find a super reliable, trustworthy AND friendly auto mechanic these days, but Rod's takes the cake. I've been going to them for years and not only to they have top shelf service, I've also been accommodated more than most other business in this area. Looking forward to continuing to get top of the line, honest work only a few miles out on the Giude... worth the trip!"
