Mike takes the time to explain everything in detail regarding what's wrong, how long it can wait until it NEEDS to be repaired, what the costs will run, and how long it will take to fix. His honesty, timeliness, and prices keep us loyal to him. His shop isn't fancy but his work certainly is. Nice guy who employs really good mechanics (including his son, Mike Jr.). There have been times when we thought we needed something fixed or maintained but he's always been honest enough to tell us when something can either wait or is fine until our yearly tune-up. He also sends you $10 coupons good for your next repair. You can save these coupons and pay up to 50% of a bill with them. He's a great person and a great mechanic. CALL HIM NOW!

Mike is very friendly and knowledgeable. He doesn't "pad" the labor charges, either. And it's only a couple blocks from the T, too.

You just get a good feeling about Mike. He is a nice guy and very good at what he does. Prices were reasonable, much less than I had feared and exactly what he he quoted. I would recommend him to anyone. I will be back, I am sure. He told me the cheapest alternative to several problems that I had. Even told me that I didn't need to worry about somethings now. Impressive.

Mike is the most capable and friendly mechanic I have ever met. He always remembers my name and has always repaired my car the same day I've brought it in. He has even offered me sound advice against his own financial interest - - to wit, that I junk my beat-up truck rather than have him fix it before I sold it to my significant other's parents! All worked out well in the end, but he certainly had my best interest at heart.

I've been going to Mike for the past 10 years - they are great. I've referred most of my friends to them as well. They are super honest and a pleasure to work with! I'm a woman and have been given the "girl" treatment at other garages and dealers, but never with Mike.

Mike's is the BOMB! In a good way. Not only are they honest, they don't talk to me (as a woman) like I should go back into the kitchen. To top it all off they give you a loaner car, where-as certain dealers make you rent a car!

This is the ideal place to take your car for service. Mike's is a small, 'neighborhood' garage, and the guys there make every effort to thoroughly examine your car, understand any issues you're having, and FULLY explain their take on what needs to happen. Theyare completely up front about what is/is not critical in terms of service, and related expense, and help you make appropriate decisions about cost. I would recommend this garage to everyone I know.

Mike is extremely patient explaining problems and his shop does excellent work. He even went through the trouble of talking over the pros/cons of keeping my old clunker on the road versus picking up one of several 'new' used cars which was much appreciated before some expensive repairs came due. Highly recommended.
