Tony Vastardis, the owner of Certified, has been doing work for us for about 15 years. He is the most honest & reliable mechanic with whom I have ever dealt in the 50 years that I have been driving.He is honestly concerned about the best way to service his customers vehicls. Ho has never suggested anything that he feels we don't need & will discourage me if I want to do something to any of my cars that he feels is not worth the expense. Tony is the most ethical & empathetic person I know. There is no way to convey how much his customers respect him both as a person & a businessman. I believe that I am unbiased in this report but I am probably a biased customer because he is so great to deal with & has become a friend as well over the years.

Tony is the most honest mechanic and nicest gentleman I have ever dealt with in the car repair business. Not only is he competent, but he can be trusted to repair what is needed and only recommends what the car actually requires. He has repaired my son's, my daughter's and my car and we have recommended him highly to our friends. He is a true Renaissance man with whom we can discuss everything from philosophy to fishing.

After receiving some questionable repairs and estimates from other shops in the Miami area, I decided to bring my car to Tony based on his Car Talk reviews. I called to check his availability and he was able to look at my car the following day. He quickly diagnosed the problem and gave me an estimate, and told me the car would be ready the following day. Tony called me the following morning to let me know that the car was ready; he had stayed late the previous night to finish more quickly. His estimate was accurate, and, best of all, he completely fixed the issue. My car feels just like it did the first day that I owned it. He also showed me the old parts he removed from my car and explained how they were damaged. To summarize, Tony is one-of-a-kind--honest, reliable, and seems to really enjoy his work. I will definitely bring my car back to him if I have any issues in the future.
