They just performed an engine overhaul on my 2001 Subaru. Barry Hartzel has been in the business for a couple of decades or more. He builds and races cars. He loves and breathes cars. And he seems to give as much attention and care to older common car owners as he does to his Alpha and Ferrari owners. Detailed inspection, a very thorough explanation in layman terms as to what is wrong and what the repair options are. The shop is large enough to deliver good service (my overhaul was completed in 4 working days), but small enough to be able to offer personal service. I never thought I'd be so happy to turn over three grand to someone. But knowing he did a great job and was charging a fair price, I did not begrudge him his fee and was glad to pay his fee.
