Keith Petrie is the owner and also a good mechanic. Two other Japanese Beetle mechanics, Jeff and Mike, have also worked on my car, and they did good work too. When two of my wheels were bent and the dealer claimed he didn't have any "take-offs" to sell me, Mike used his connections to get me some. (In case you don't use the term "take-offs," they are the original wheels on a new car, sold cheaply when the buyer immediately upgrades to fancier wheels.)

I have done business with Japanese Beetle for almost 20 years. They have NEVER done an unnecessary repair and have refused to do unneeded repairs suggested by other (unscrupulous) mechanics. For example, I encountered a mechanic in a tire shop who insisted that I needed to replace the struts on a 1983 Honda civic that I owned. I checked this out with the folks at Japanees Beetle. They could have agreed and done the work and I would have been none the wiser. Instead, they looked at the car and told me that if it were their car they would NOT replace the struts; the struts were fine. This and many other positive experiences with them have kept me gladly coming back to do business with them. They are excellent. It's too bad that they only work on Hondas and Acuras.
