When no one else can fix it, take it to Harry!! He will always let you know if work is not needed.

Harry is the best kept secret in this area. Most honest mechanic I've ever known. When I buy a used car, Harry checks it out first.

When we hit a deer outside of Cincinnati (headed from Atlanta towards Newark, Ohio) the Saturday before Memorial Day, AAA could tow us as far as the west side of Columbus for free. We looked up a national body shop and when the tow truck dropped us off...they were closed for the holiday. I turned to the Mechanic Files immediately, and Harry was the closest mechanic. I called to see if he was open, and he said, yes, but he was going to leave for the weekend and wouldn't be able to get to any body work until Wednesday. He suggested other local body shops I could call if I needed work done faster. That was impressive thing #1. Everyone else was closed too, so we took the car over to Southwest Service Center (it was driveable...barely). Harry knew pretty immediately how much a repair would cost: $3000 for what was visible--new side panel, bumper, hood, and headlight, plus probably another $500 fudge factor because "When you hit a deer, there's always some surprise waiting under the hood once you start fixing the car." His snap judgment estimate was $72 short of the final total. He also said that it would take a few weeks, because ordering the parts would take a little while. Total honesty: Impressive Thing #2. When my in-laws picked up the car for us (since we live in Atlanta), they noticed a fly in the paint. Harry started buffing it out and then said, "You know what? I'm rushing. Do you guys mind going to dinner and coming back? That way I can take my time and do it right." Impressive Thing #3. Finally, he mentioned that he doesn't advertise and he took down his sign (the garage is behind a house, but just look for the address and you'll find it), because he got more business than he could handle and didn't want to delay people. So he figures anyone who can find him is pretty trustworthy. I'll probably never get to use Southwest Service Center again, but it was a genuine pleasure doing business with Harry. And that's not something I ever expected to say about a mechanic.
