Bought a new muffler for my Mazda 626 and it seemed to be getting some signs of rust earlier than I thought was reasonable. I went in to complain and the owner Bob Valencour said, " The muffler is guaranteed for the life of the car. Just bring it in when you need a new one and we will take care of it for you."

You deal with the shop owner, Bob, and, really, that makes all the difference. He's notified me promptly when additional repairs are needed over what I thought would be required. But I trust him to the degree that so long as it costs under $100 he can just go right ahead and fix it. I wouldn't use anyone else.

We have done business with Babers for years. They worked on my cars until I moved out of state, they now work on my daughter and son in laws vehicles. We have always felt confident bringing our vehicles to Bob. He is honest and pleasant and knows his business. Dana's Mom

I'm an obsessive pain in the neck, and Bob and his staff always explain everything before I ask. They've referred me to specialized service shops, where the staff always mention how great Baber is. They've inspected potential vehicles before I purchased them and their comments have always proven true, even the long term predictions about eventual leaks and such. A small shop with personal service and great prices. What else could I want?

Bob and his staff have worked on two different vehicles for me. They have called me prior to starting any repairs and provided an accurate price up front. I've never had an problem or concern with their service.

This was my first time using Baber, and I am satisfied with the towing arrangements and the work performed. I am surprised about the labor costs (higher than expected), probably because most of my car work bills have come from town or country shops, and Baber is in a major metropolitan area.

I used this shop for many years, but it changed hands 2-3 years ago and reviews older than 2011 should be ignored. I found them, in one visit, to dramatically exaggerate repair needs. They claimed a serious oil leak when nothing was happening beyond the normal leakiness of GM products.
