Just unreal: this guy is a ONE man facility , and HE took the time to stop/drop/look at my car , when the dealers (WITH 15-20 TECHNICANS) BASICALLY TOLD ME "MAKE AN APPOINTMENT". Not only did he find the problem with my air conditioner , but he got it done in ONE day....he told me that most times , it's a 7-10 day by appointment kinda thing , BUT HE DID IT THE SAME DAY!! The dealer were quoting me 500-700 bucks without even seeing my Subaru..Mobile Auto had it making cold air....$170.00.!...it's been great for months now....this place has a wall FILLED with letters of praise and thanks...I will S U R E L Y be adding one of my own...the place is AMAZING!

Again, a one-man shop that's been open for 18 years. This should tell you something that it's a good shop, because if something wasn't done right with your car, no one can pass the buck to someone else. Fast work, nice guy, honest, even painted up some of the dings on my bumper for me without asking. Highly recommended. And I always trust an auto shop that has a dog...

Paul diagnosed and repaired an oil leak in my 1994 Toyota Camry. He clearly knows what he's doing, and will happily explain every aspect of the source and solution to your vehicle's problems.

I saw Paul (and his dog Luna) today for the first time. He went out of his way to work me in on a Saturday afternoon and he fixed a noise I was hearing right away. He's seems reasonable, fair, hard-working and he shoots straight from the hip with a sense of humor and dry wit. I recommend him, and plan to see him again when I have any more trouble with my Subaru Impreza. He's the best car service I've had in a long time.

The the owner, mechanic and dog walker is Paul. He's honest and direct. He worked on my 2000 TT for everything from tires, oil change, to busted transmission. He cursed the entire time, but he got it done. He doesn't like VW/Audi. I can't blame him. Eventually we got to the point where he couldn't fix the issue. He referred me to someone who could. Now that's professionalism. Unfortunately Harvard University is evicting him because they want to tear down the garage for dorms or something. I hope he sets-up shop somewhere nearby. Good honest and funny mechanics are so hard to find. See him while you can!

Super nice guy. Price was far cheaper than the dealers. Substantial work was done in 24 hrs. Fixed a dent and cleaned the car for free without my asking! What a find!

Paul is the only mechanic who I gladly take my car to. He is incredibly trustworthy, his prices are fair, and his quick turnaround time on repairs never ceases to amaze me. On one occasion, he touched up a ding in my bumper without even needing to be asked...as I recall he charged me about $3 to cover the cost of the paint. He is obviously a busy guy, but never keeps you waiting for repairs; most routine work gets done the day you drop off the car. His garage in Newton is a little tricky to find...take a left past G M Auto Body and keep going to the end of the road (I think it's called Maguire Ct)...he's in a building with several garages.
