CarScope is a small, family-run auto repair shop where you don’t get lost in the crowd.

Personal care

Our goal is to look out for your best interests and do the best job we can for an honest wage. We’re not out to present a polished image, but to build a trusted personal relationship where you can feel at home.

Our technicians are ASE certified.

Save money – honesty

Repairing modern cars is flat-out expensive, but because we really do “look out for your best interests,” we will likely save you thousands of dollars over the years. We don’t use the typical sales quotas, goals, spiffs, bonuses, or other tools to drive sales. Our service recommendations are based solely on the safety, performance, economy, and reliability of your vehicle, tempered by our understanding of your desires, preferences, and current situation. If the service can wait or if for some reason we think it’s better not to invest the repair cost in your current car, we’ll give you that opinion rather than just do the job to get the money.

Accurate technical service advice

We do our best to give you accurate information about your car so you can make the right service decisions. The service writer, your communication link to the technician, has a key role in getting your car fixed right. We emphasize honesty and accuracy in communication to our service writers and technicians. And at CarScope, the person who speaks to you about your vehicle’s needs is most often the technician who discovered them.

This is the best repair shop I've been to! They are knowledgeable, friendly, and thorough. I go out of my way to have them maintain my vehicle. I am very impressed with their service.

First visit to CarScope. Vintage vehicle with noises and leaks. Extremely thorough preliminary diagnosis. Largely accurate with minor "discoveries" during repairs. Estimate remained accurate. Quality of repairs top-notch. Stayed in contact with details progress reports throughout the repair cycle. Will make the 25 mile commute for all vehicle repairs in the future. You can go to CarScope with confidence and peace of mind.

We have been bringing our vehicles to CarScope for years, and have always been very pleased with the service. This is a family-operated business run with integrity and excellence. CarScope is not a "cheap" repair shop, but cheap auto repairs can be disastrous (especially for folks like us who have little automotive knowledge). CarScope does excellent work at fair prices, and if anything isn't right you can bring it back and they will keep working until you are satisfied. We trust the Hicks family; over the years, they have never led us astray on work that needs to be done. We strongly recommend this wonderful business.

I don't usually take time out to do these. However, I feel compelled this time for 2 reasons: First off, if I had not read the other reviews I likely would not have ended up using this mechanic. I gave credence to the words and gave them a call. From that initial call to the time I picked up my car, 3 words come to mind: Courteous, consistent and convenient. I had previously (for the exception of purchasing tires) ONLY used the dealership I purchased my car from for any service. There were things that made me feel restless about continuing in that vein. CarScope gave me a good feeling from the initial phone call. The little things DO matter! Probing questions about my concern, giving options, telling me to come by at my convenience so they could make confirmation of a factor, all gave me the indication of how they operate. My car's issue was resolved. It was just a few days ago but I will remain optimistic. They made sure to convey to me that I can follow-up if it not. Looks like they have gained a new customer.
