Bob and Gary are honest, good mechanics. They fix the issue that you bring to them and don't "mess" with anything else, looking for more work. Their prices are fair and their knowledge and skills excellent. You do need to know what you want fixed...describe the issue...as they will leave well enough alone any other conditions you have come to live with. They are also good a alternative fixes that work as well or better for really expensive situations on older cars.

It's the only repair shop I've been to, that I don't make my husband take the car in, because I don't feel that they treat females differently than males. I took my car in to have the A/C checked, and they said it was just an old car, and that's the best it was going to do. No charge. Another place wanted over $1000 to fix it, but upon further questioning, admitted it was old and may not be fixable. I have been very happy with my many experiances there.

Gary Breazeale (pronounced "Brazil") and his staff do not upsell you stuff you don't need, either. If you need a tune- up, that's what he does. If you want to have him inspect a used car before you buy it, that's what he does. If you need your valves cleaned, that's what he does. When I needed my valves cleaned, it was because the car (a 97 Honda Accord) wouldn't start. And he got it back on the road with a minimum of fuss and cost. When my useless Dodge Caravan had dropped its transmission, he walked me through the options (new trans, rebuilt trans, etc.), but was careful to note that Caravans were famous for bad transmissions, which helped me conclude that if I wanted to really get rid of the problem, I needed to get rid of the car. In every transaction I had with him, he dealt fairly, he did good work, and didn't try to make more money for himself. I don't think you can ask for much more than that. PS - They just moved off of SR Ave to a new location, so call and ask about their new one (about .5 miles from the old). The last time I went, their change of address announcement was in the mail, and I found their new location the hard way.

Gary Breazeale is an honest, competent, low-key guy. I have never had to return my cars to him for any incomplete or misdiagnosed issue. All my family members use him too and I've recommended him to many others. He goes out of his way to explain the services and help you make economical choices while keeping safety paramount. I have never felt that he was condescending because I am female. His prices are fair and reasonable. The present location of the shop is better than the old one. They always make acommodations when there has been a vehicular emergency. I highly recommend his services.
