I've only been to this shop twice, but they have genuinely impressed me with straight forward answers and resonable prices. They could've suckered me into costly, useless repairs. Instead, they shocked me by giving me information that actually saved me money. Most recently, a chain repair place told me to replace brake pads that were less than a year old , because of a leaky brake cylinder. Mr. Lee (Lincoln Square) advised that my pads were good for another 60,000 + miles and that I just needed to replace my cylinders. He took the time to show me the wear and tear on my (old)cylinders and how solid and new my brake pads were. It saved me more than $50! That's just one example, however, I have heard nothing but good from everyone I know that's gone there for repairs ever since!

They picked up my car. Gave me three options for the repair - 1) Use dealer parts (most expensive), 2) Warranty parts not thru the dealer, 3) Non-warranty parts (the cheapest). On top of that they discussed the negatives and positives of each decision. When it all came down to decision time, I trusted them on which one they recommended which was the middle route. If they chose the most expensive route it would have been better for them, but they felt that it was unneccesary for the customer. I feel that they totally take care of thier customers first and foremost....

I brought my mercury sable to them because a tire shop indicated that i needed new struts. Carmello told me that the struts were fine. took the same car to them because of a shimmy in steering wheel. they checked it out and told me the problem was a shifted belts in a tire, and suggested i go back to tire dealer for warranty. they didn't charge anything to make the diagnosis. after the tire dealer refused to replace the tire (they claimed 'road hazard'), i went back to carmello, who, after hearing the low mileage i put on the vehicle suggested a less expensive, rather than more expensive tire. one more: a chevy astro van. the abs light was on. electrical problems can be very time consuming to figure out. they checked a few things and got a computer read out and from that gave me a list of things that needed to be replaced (according to the vehicle computer). after i told him that the van had repairs for faulty wiring in the brake system several years ago he instead took apart all the connections in the brake wiring (there are a bunch of them), cleaned them and problem went away. no replaced parts. he was very willing to work with me in trying to make a diagnosis, and took what i said seriously. i know that he didn't charge me for all the time that they spent on the vehicle.

Only small comment I have is something that would turn them from a great mechanic into an excellent one. When I'm there for a repair and I'm overdue (months overdue)for an oil change they never remind me. It usually hits me that I need one after I bring the car home. Last year a part fell off my car when driving on the interstate due to incorrectly repairing the car the last time it was in the shop. After chatting with Carmelo and fully explaining the situation he agreed that mistakes appear to have been made. He gave reimbursed me for the amount of the repair (I had to leave it with another mechanic cause it was not drivable). I was impressed with the service.

They seem to treat everyone the same, just got right down to business. Friendly, hard working, and did a great job fixing all my old Ford's issues
