Greg cares more for your car than you could ever...

Greg is extremely friendly and takes the time to explain precisely what is wrong with your car and what it will take to fix it. He'll make recommendations based on what you SHOULD do, not on what he wants to make that day. Greg inspired trust in me from the first few minutes of talking to him, and that's not easy to do. I intend to be a long-time customer.

I was interested in buying a pickup in LA while I live north of Seattle. Greg checked it out, test drove it and didn't charge me a nickel. On his advice, I bought the vehicle and his assessment was completely accurate...a rarity in modern day America. Thanks, Greg.

I took my 2006 xB in to Greg because he's close to my house and was referred on this Web site. When I got there, he looked at it and said he could do it for about $40. WOW! Sounds good to me. Without going into the whole thing, there are a few things I can point to that say "good mechanic" and "good guy." 1) He looked me in the eye and shook my hand when I got there. 2) He was disappointed in his own work because the OEM hangers weren't quite right and the exhaust wasn't perfectly centered, but 3) he didn't just correct the hangers and potentially void my warranty to be perfect, he asked me to look into it first and said he'd fix it if either I wanted him to or if I found out that Injen says it's ok. In the end, he charged me $8 below his quote (total $34) and said he'd fix the exhaust hanger to be perfect if I wanted him to or if I hear from Injen that it's ok. I will definitely be back to see him.

When I arrived a few days after talking to Greg on the phone, he was waiting for me at the appointed time, list in hand of possible problems I had mentioned in our chat. Instead of just automatically fixing what I thought might be problems--like every other mechanic I've known--he spent over on hour with my Toyota Avalon, behind the wheel driving and listening, under the hood checking liquid levels and pinching hoses and even lifted the car up on the hydrolic arms to checked out the underbelly poking his flashlight up inside. The car was fine, he told me. The noise I heard in the alternator was normal. And, what did I owe him for his time and diagnosis? Nothing. Nada. My goodness! That rarest of breeds: an honest mechanic. When my car does need repairs, or I think it might, for sure I'm going back to Greg. Highly recommended.
