I found this place through the cartalk website and agree that Jack and his son Dean were great guys (when they owned the shop). They were real car buffs, honest, and very fair priced. We even had their information on our work bulletin board. Recently, however, things have changed. Jack sold the place and I don't see the new guy being in business long and here's why. The other day, I called to get an estimate on a CV joint. A new guy answered the phone and I was pleased to see that Jack was hiring help (at least that's what I thought). When the new guy priced the job, it came back a bit high but Jack had always been honest with me so I figured it was just a fluke on my part. I took the car in anyways for them to diagnose it. When I got the call back on what needed to be done, I was told it wasn't the CV joint and the actual repairs would cost over 3x the original quote. I told them thanks anyways but that's 1/3 the value of the car and not worth repairing. I then went to pickup the car and while the new guy was adamant that the repairs were dire, I asked where Jack and Dean were. He told me that they had sold the shop to him. Now things made sense and on a whim I priced the job with a local Dealer. Jacks Mechanic is now the same price as the dealer (but without OEM parts). Here's the real kicker though. I hired another mechanic to look at the car afterwards and the first thing he noticed was the tire was bad. It turns out, that's all it was. A bad tire! Seriously? Even I feel like an idiot not knowing that. How does a professional mechanic not notice that? Perhaps he did, perhaps he didn't. Regardless, Jacks information is no longer on our wall. It's a shame though, that Jacks name would be dragged down too. Good luck new guy.
