This is an honest shop, with a hardworking and knowledgeable owner. They are, however, careless. I got my car back one time and the spark plug wires were routed so that they interfered with pulling out the dipstick to check the oil level. Another time a protective cover for an electrical terminal was left lying on top of the battery. The battery cable was routed so that I could not remove the cap to check the fluid level in the battery.

This is a grizzled old guy who's owned his shop for more than 35 years; made his bones in Detroit and is great if your ride is more than 30 years old. The facility used to be a horse carriage and bicycle repair shop, opened shortly after the 1906 earthquake. I disagree with the reviewer who says he has poor customer relations and does not treat women with respect. I have seen him interacting with a female customer and saw no evidence of disrespect or contempt. I got along with him so well, that it was difficult to pick up my car and get on to my further appointment for sitting around chewing the fat about my car, Detroit, San Francisco history, or anything else we could think of ( maybe it's because I'm almost as old as he is ). He has a staff of young guys from the neighborhood which might account for the carelessness that one reviewer noticed; but you might note that Paulie is well respected by the other mechanics in the area. So if your Ford or Chrysler is older than you are, I highly recommend you talk to this guy...
