Husband and wife run the shop. She married him because he was an honest mechanic. My 83 Mercedes needed rear brakes. They installed them, but they were grinding. They machined the rotors again,twice until he told me the rear wheel was at an angle and the noise would continue. I verified it. Once, I brought my own synthetic oil and filter in for my VW. They changed it for free. He installed some oil seals in my son's Honda, but it continued to leak. 3 months later (my son didn't tell me it was still leaking), I took it in and they fixed it for free. He told me a seal got turned, or something. I would have gladly paid after such a long period of time. Above all, they are honest and have saved me money, especially with my Mercedes. I know, because of my previous mechanic.

I can't say enough about my experience with Chris at The Little Garage. Sporadically my VW would loose acceleration. The EPC light would come on. I would manually shift the car until I could park it for a while. The car would restart and the EPC indicator light would go off. I was told by the dealership it would $1,100 to repair the throttle body. I was devastated. A friend recommended The Little Garage. Chris said the throttle body could be cleaned first to see if that would fix the problem. How much? $36. Thirty Six Dollars! I went from thinking about a loan to fix the car to pocket change. I didn't even have to stop at the bank to pay the man. Thirty Six dollars! Not one hundred and thirty six, not fifty even, Thirty Six dollars. That's an honest mechanic.
