Bad Ignition Coils
This is a video of a bad ignition coil. It’s not supposed to spark on the outside, only on the inside where you shouldn’t see it. A bad coil can make your vehicle run bad and potentially leave you stranded.

I have been going to Tom’s for a while now to have my 2006 Scion worked on. They do quality work and at a good price. Very professional and honest, great staff to work with. I am saddened that I am moving down to Arizona at the end of the month and will no longer be able to have my car serviced at Tom’s. I hope I can find a new one like them down there. Thanks for all your services over the years. Jeff

Great customer service, totally went the extra mile in terms of COVID awareness as the car was sanitized prior to it getting returned to us. Super communicative and helpful in terms of current and future maintenance. Also very friendly. Will be back-

The A/C on my CR-V stopped working. I was able to take my car in the same day I called and they diagnosed the problem within about 10 minutes. Called me later the same day to give me the cost estimate. Very helpful and understanding that the repair was expensive and that I was considering whether or not to have the work done.
