Going to Main Street Shell is like putting on a pair of comfortable shoes. It feels right. They are reliable. And, you stick with them.
The people were very friendly and quite helpful with my emissions test and decal renewal. I also got information regarding the 60k miles maintenance work that needs to be done which seemed very reasonable.
The dipstick was apparently broken during my oil change. They did not inform me of this and I only discovered it when I got home that evening and was checking to ensure there were no leaks and there was adequate oil in the engine. The upper half of the plastic dipstick handle was sitting loose in the tube and the lower portion of the plastic handle was still in the tube (with the metal part of the dipstick still attached). Otherwise, they were very prompt and did a very good job. I have used them previously and will continue to use them in the future. This was unfortunate, but it did happen.
The Main Street Shell staff is fast, friendly and thorough. I have been really impressed with the professionalism and convenience since I began using their services earlier this year. We have shifted all of our cars there.
We've been going to Dr. Ellison since she opened the Cat Hospital. She is an amazing vet! She spends the time she needs, explains everything, great diagnostician, so thorough, kind and compassionate. All the staff at the Cat Hospital is awesome!
