  • I have been using Max's shop since 1990. He is very honest, fair, and will repair your vehicle to the best of his ability, and in my case, that's always. He has reasonable prices, and if he can't fix your problem, he will tell you and not play the ' let's replace a bunch of parts and see if it helps' game. When I had my land yacht, '78 Grand Marquis, towed there when the applied brakes made a horrible noise, instead of selling me a $4-500 brake job, which I was fully expecting, he removed a loose nut from the brakes, which solved the problem. The only cost, was a smile from me!! I wouldn't take my vehicles anywhere else! Toothjockey
