I am always very satisfied with the service I receive at Smith Specialty. They really know their cars and don't try to push you to buy things you don't really need. They always answer all my questions thoroughly. Wonderful place.

Between soccer/baseball practices for my kids, and picking them up from school, its run run run. I needed an oil change at 90,000 miles on my Explorer, so I called Smith Specialty upon recommendation of another mother. They gave me a 2 pm spot for the following day... And when they called at 4 pm and said my family hauler was ready, they told me they did a complimentary tire rotation as well! I was impressed to say the least! Thank you to all the staff and mechanics at Smith Specialty for making this mother's day a home run! Kristy S in Olathe, KS

Fantastic crew, always willing to help! My car was a real pain to work with, but they were willing to do it. There were a couple issues after the service, but I'm not sure it was their fault (my car was a mess). Jordan and Bill were so willing to help and make sure the work was done completely. After bringing it in again, they made sure everything worked great, and they even followed up with me! Fantastic customer service. I think I found my new auto crew! Thanks again, guys.

The guys at the shop are very personable. They were able to get my car looked at over the lunch hour and were completely honest and upfront on what NEEDED to be done with the car. They did a great job explaining what was wrong and what needed to be done as well as having a written estimate with the same explanation for me to look at. This helped when trying to understand what exactly was wrong so I could explain it to my significant other. This is the first time I’ve taken my vehicle here and it won’t be my last.
