Extremly courteous and professional. Recommends repairs needed and recommends when repairs may not be cost- effective based on a car's value (esp. for older vehicles)

My car was due for a timing belt change, so I called a number of mechanics in my area. This place gave me the lowest price quote, and the receptionist said it would take about a day. I'm used to being ripped off by car dealers, especially if I go into a place alone and they realize I'm a girl with no clue about how things work and how much things are supposed to cost. When I picked up my car the next day, it was actually about $20 cheaper than what she had quoted me on. I talked to her for a few minutes because I was curious about it, and she was really nice and said that she actually handles all the pricing, not the guys in the garage. So she actually looks up all the parts herself, and then adds the requisite amount for labor, and that's it. There's no tweaking. It was really nice to not by taken advantage of.

The alternator on my '98 Civic failed with only 56,000 miles. I'm retired and prefer to cycle wherever I go in town, but the car seems to wear out even though I hardly drive it. I naturally checked these Car Talk listings and phoned Andrade's first because the 2 recommendations were good and they're only a mile from where I currently live, so I was pretty sure the battery would hold up for that short a trip. The shop is located in a working-class residential neighborhood, has about 6 bays (just an impression, I didn't count them), is very clean, and has a *tiny* office with almost no room for waiting. I found Mr Khoury polite, matter-of-fact, and straightforward. He diagnosed the dead alternator right away, quoted $300 for the replacement, which was fair, and did the work that very afternoon. I'll certainly bring my car back to him for future work. He also cleaned and lubed the battery terminals, which brightened up the lights a great deal! I'd been avoiding doing that because I couldn't remember the 4-digit anti-theft code for my radio/cd unit. When I got the car back that afternoon, the radio of course refused to turn on unless I re-entered the forgotten code because losing power made it think it had been stolen. I emailed Kenwood for help with clearing the code, but they refused. Fortunately I remembered the individual digits, so by permuting them and patiently working through the permutations I recovered the code. But I'll never buy another Kenwood anything after experiencing their uncaring unhelpfulness! So in sum, I'm happy to recommend Mr Khoury's work, even though I'm doing it based only on a single data point, the replacement of a dead alternator.
