On 7/1/2024 Katie Vickers had this to say:
I grew up in small town, spoiled in many ways for future customer service interactions by the personal relationships that come from knowing your mechanic personally. After settling in Des Moines I expected that I would be just another customer for my car servicer, and that was true for many years, until I became a customer at Higgins. I was looking for a new mechanic, as a new job meant my old mechanic was no longer conveniently located for services and my coworker recommended Higgins. I started off slow with oil changes, air filters, tire rotations, a chance to test the waters on their customer service and pricing. It's been 7 years now, and they recently helped us with purchasing a new-to-us minivan. We spotted a used one online and they squeezed us in to give it a thorough inspection before we put in an offer. We're one year in on the new van and it runs great. Higgins has given us great work every single time at a great price. They always work hard to make space for us in an emergency, which have thankfully been few. When we got rear ended they helped connect us with a trustworthy body shop, when the radio went out in our 2004 sedan they recommended a sound shop. Our relationship with the team at Higgins makes me feel like I'm still in my town of 800 people and my mechanic is an old family friend. If you have a Honda, Tars is the tech to ask for by the way! His knowledge and care for our three Hondas has been amazing. I really believe he knows our cars inside and out!

Higgins Plaza is my number 1 spot for all my automotive needs. They are friendly, professional, and honest. If they stumble across an issue they can't fix, they provide great guidance on who to speak with. I've always felt taken care of and respected as an individual customer rather than just another person with a car problem. I highly recommend Higgins Plaza for all your automotive concerns. They've been taking car of our 5 vehicles for over 15 years, and I've never had any complaints or concerns about their work.

On 6/21/2024 J J. had this to say:
Took our VW Jetta for a purchase inspection and we were thoroughly impressed with Nick's knowledge, comprehensive inspection, and overall customer support. Highest recommendation.
