I went there for the first time the other day. I was impressed with the staff and their knowledge. They brought me out in the shop and showed me what was wrong with my vehicle! Definitely will be going back!

They were able to take a look at my car right away. I really appreciate the detail that Steve was able to provide. He explained the repairs required and the cost was reasonable; actually better than I expected. I will consider them for future work.

Melissa at the front desk is so incredibly friendly over the phone and in person. I appreciated the overall car inspection. It was so nice that it could be sent via text message to make it even more convenient. Overall, it was a excellent experience with such nice people!

Had a great experience here in the Fall of 2019. Head gaskets replacements in our Duramax… Since it was a huge job, I researched shops all over the twin cities area and Next Gen didn’t disappoint. Worked with Melissa and Cody and felt well informed through the whole process; they helped us identify other opportunistic items to work on. Very responsive to all my questions. They provided us a loaner car through the couple weeks our truck was in the shop. The truck has worked well over the past few months. Great work, i’m grateful to have a reliable truck again during these odd times.
