I was stranded in Ohio when my Jasper Engine died. One call to you and my problems were solved. Your professionalism, attention to details and assistance was/is greatly appreciated. The replacement is running fine and turn around time was great. I feel bad I will not be in the area to have continued service but I highly recommend that anyone near you bring there Auto's for service and repair.
The thing I like most about FMG is their honesty. Great FB page!
Frank May Garage is by far the most knowledgeable and professional auto repair business I have ever done business with. My wife and I are very grateful to Frank May Garage and especially to David May for all the efforts they provided in diagnosing and problem solving repairs for our 2006 Ford Explorer. Thank you Richard B.
Love my New tires! Car rides like I'm floating on a cloud
