Bill Fimbre runs a great shop, and treated me (female customer) with informed good humor and told me in detail everything I asked about. He spent a week and a half tracking down a baffling electrical problem, circuit checking everything he could find, and ended up charging me for just an hour of labor since he said the rest was an "educational experience" for him. He wouldn't even let me pay until I'd driven the car for a few weeks and confirmed that the problem was solved! He's a really nice guy, fun to talk to, and I only hope I find someone as good when I move out of the state.

I have used Fimbres for over 5 years now to get several cars worked on, most often my Toyota. Bill has the small town honesty and ease that makes it fun to deal with him. On a couple of jobs he has charged me just for the parts, or if it's a very small job, he does it for free. The only down side is that he's only open 3 days a week!! (as of June 2004, anyways) so you need to call a week or two in advance. Often he has told me to not bother to replace things. He errs on the side of "save your money - don't replace it" when a lot of other mechanics will just replace parts so you don't have to come back. If you'd rather pay a bit extra and never have to come back to your mechanic you might want to find someone else. It just depends on your own personal style, I guess. Myself, I've always been happy there.
