Greg has worked on our various cars for almost 10 years. He and his staff are patient, calm, and HONEST! I live in the mountains and must commute on a two-lane highway with few pullouts. One winter night, my oil light went on. By the time I reached a place I could pull over, the engine was making horrible noise. The next day, the mountain area tow truck driver/garage owner called me to say the oil drain plug had been missing from the bottom of the car. I went to see Greg, full of trepidation and anxiety. I told him the whole story. When I got to the point about the drain plug missing, ALL HE DID WAS WINCE and then he asked me if I'd like him to repair it or if I'd like the guy in the mountains to repair it. He paid to have the car towed back down the mountain, paid for my rental car, and REPLACED MY ONE YEAR OLD ENGINE at no charge. If he were single and my daughter were older, I'd tell her to marry him--calm, honest, straightforward--what more could you ask?

I got the reference to this shop from this site and the mechanic was just as expected...honest and forthright.

They did quite a bit of long-needed maintenance on my 86 Honda Civic Si, including new timing belt, struts, thermostat, 160k service, front brake job (new pads, turned rotors). I told Greg to really go over the car with a fine-tooth comb, & they did but did not take advantage or go hog wild, & Greg explained & justified the why repairs were needed on the things that were found. Everything was great, price was reasonable/what I expected, overheating problem totally gone. Except that afterward I started to hear a front brake-related noise. I brought her back and they looked at the brakes & also went for a ride with me (very large mechanics graciously shoe-horning themselves into my relatively tiny car) so that I could identify the noise (pretty subtle, but not to someone who has driven the car for 22 years). The mechanic was able to hear the noise but not identify the source, but speculated it might be the new pads, said they were wearing evenly & were safe. I was willing to see if the noise would go away as the pads were broken in. After another couple of months the noise was still there & driving me insane. I brought her in again. This time they found the problem (slipped shim touching the rotor) & fixed it on both sides even though only one side was the problem. No charge for either re-check or re-repair, absolutely courteous & friendly. It's a schlep for me to get there from where I live, but I'd still rather go there for anything major even if it means renting a car.

I called Greg's because I needed a mechanic in the area to have a look at a used car I was considering buying long distance (I'm in MA). He was very nice and pointed me in the direction of a couple of other mechanics who would be better suited given the weird make/model (VW Eurovan). Very decent sort of bloke, I thought.
