You should deal directly with Randy Pickering. He is fantastic to deal with. His other guys Glen, Jim and Gary are good too.

I went there for a possible transmission problem on a <60,000 mile 5 year old Nissan Sentra. After they flushed out the transmission and the problem persisted, they recommended a full rebuild @ $2800. Not believing that should be necessary on a car with that mileage, I took it somewhere else (see Tew Transmission, Arvada) and after a few days they found that the throttle cable was sticking - replaced it for about $110. Pickering seemed OK and honest, but I feel they gave up too easily and went with the standard, expensive repair option.

The staff at Pickering are always friendly, honest and take the time to explain what's going on without being condescending. When I decline additional service options, they are never pushy. I'm very comfortable with taking my vehicle to Pickering Auto. --E.G

My first experience was a clutch and rear engine seal replacement. The clutch was done well and I've had no problems. When I later went in for a timing belt replacement, things didn't go so well. They told me I needed a rear seal, but when I told them they had already done that, they didn't respect their warranty and didn't redo it. The mechanic did something to my A/C and it no longer works, maladjusted the supercharger (it is one belt rib off, squeaks, and he must have used Lock-Tite on the adjustment bolts because neither I nor he could loosen them). When I took it back, I was told the belt must be a bad one (a Gates with a few thousand miles on it that hadn't squeaked before) and that it wasn't one rib off, that the mechanic hadn't messed with the supercharger adjustment (he had to have), and the A/C wasn't their problem. I subsequently found out the belt had been tightened as much as possible - there being no play (1/4" at center is the spec) - and when I loosened it the squeal become much less recurrent, but it's still one rib off. I may have to heat the bolts to release the Lock-Tite.
