Worked on my VW Bug for years. Replaced engine, transmission, routine maintenance all well done. Now works on my VW Golf in the same way. Reasonable rates, personable staff, and best of all, rigorously honest. I had a long, distinguished history of being ripped off by most shops. A friend recommended Blodgett's to me and I've been a customer for at least five years, maybe longer. Not located in a great neighborhood, but then again, I'm dropping off my car and picking it up, not living there. Shop is closed when that element is out in any case.

My husband and I bought a 1973 Volkswagon Beetle and we have taken it there almost since the begining. He was auctually refered to us by a family member. Most recently, we had Blodgetts look at our car before we did a major road trip. Two days after we cam back the car broke down. We took it back to Blodgetts and they fixed the part free of charge because it was something that they missed, somehow. But they ALWAYS fix their mistakes for free. They have been honest, fast and courteous ever since we started going there.

They have real integrity -- will give you good advice on when making repairs is needed and their charges have always been reasonable -- and are very good at what they do. Great shop.

I am a not-car-savvy grandmother. I took my Mazda in, afraid that it needed brakes. They told me that there was a minor problem, easily fixed and drove it to be sure everything in the car sounded/felt right. The charge for the work was minimal. While they didn't make any money on me, we will definitely take the other 2 vehicles in the family there. It's great to have a mechanic you can trust.

I used the mechanic answer service to find out what was the problem, most likely. I used the CAR TALK recommendations to find the shop and was VERY satisfied. Stacy (I believe is the owner) agreed that the problem sounded like a cooling fan but took the car out for a test drive first to be sure, drove it again before turning it over to me. They guarantee for 6 months or 6,000 miles, and the only delay was in getting parts from the supplier. I watched the courtesy treatment of males and feel as a female I got the same courtesy.

The front shop and the staff are a little grimy and disorganized; it inspires confidence that they care more about cars than about GQ. My wife was treated as a thinking human and everything was explained to her. I brought my truck in for its 120,000 service with a list of what it needed. After a few hours, they called to say some of the services were not needed based on what they saw and would not perform them unless I insisted. They also mentioned services not in the schedule that they recommended and stated what the cost would be and how important each one was at that time.

I've known these slobs for decades. They are all so ugly it's just scary, even the people who just work for them. But if you want a good mechanic, don't be a fool, go there. BTW, I'm just kidding about the ugly part.
