WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US

Carol L, Wilmington, NC

I had a simple oil change and it was perfect as usual. Performance AS has been working on my cars since 1996 and I’ve always had great service. If you take your car to a dealership, your nuts!

Terry M, Wilmington, NC

Always quick, easy and professional. They let me know what needs to be done now and what can wait until the next oil change. And my car? It purrs.

Gary W, Wilimington, NC

I am currently and will be in the future a returning customer to performance auto because the service they provide has always been excellent, and everyone i have had contact with there has been extremely courteous a pleasure to work with.

Edward A, Jacksonville, NC

My Mercedes S63 has been maintenanced by PAS since I’ve owned it and I must say this shop is the BEST. They don’t RIP OFF their clients, they rather have a satisfied returning customer then rob you. My car will on be serviced at PAS located at 19 Covil St. Thanks Chris, John, and Chris
