When you walk in this place, the first thing that goes through your mind is the theme song from "Sanford and Son". It's a mess. But Bill runs a thoroughly professional shop. He's been in business a quarter century and was first recommended to me by a service manager at a local new car dealer. If you need a transmission or motor or engine work, Mobile Trends is a great place--especially on an older vehicle where the worth of the car is less than the cost of the engine or transmission work that it needs. Bill just put a used transmission (inspected and tested and with a 90 day warranty) in my Mother-in-Law's car (I paid for it). It's a '97 Escort with 135,000 miles and she can't afford to replace. To make matters worse it had been driven for over a year with 2 to 3 quarts of extra oil in the engine so all the seals had to be replaced plus plugs, pvc, etc. The total bill was $1800, including the tune-up and a front brake job (they only had 10% wear left). These guys are good, professional and personable. Even if you walk in and start doing the harmonica riff from Sanford and Son. Call 'em Car Guys! This is your kind of place.
