Tim Berdine is the owner of Berdine's Auto Repair. This shop was started by his father in the 50's. He is unfortunately one of the best kept secrets for excellent car repair & customer service in our area. Mr. Berdine always gives free estimates & alerts a client when a possible repair will turn more expensive then expected, giving a choice to the client without pressure to fix it. Mr. Berdine will also research to see if a possible repair can be covered by warranty to save the client money. Personally he has worked on 5 of our vehicles through many years & never have we had even ONE complaint! His specialized employess have been with him for many years & are all highly trained & competent, so you don't see a new face when you take your car in. We cannot begin to tell you how highly we recommend this shop. Hey, an honest mechanic & an honest shop owner like these guys are a rarity these days, just like an honest lawyer. Ya gotta love 'em, folks. These fellers are the cat's pajamas!

Can't say enough in praise of Tim Berdine & his auto repair garage. He explained the problem with my truck in detail, offering me several options to get it fixed. The mechanics are great, too. My truck was repaired in a timely manner, too. THANKS, Tim!

This was Me giving Berdine's a second chance after A second set of brake pads failed on my Toyota Sienna, while we were on vacation over 1,000 miles away, coming down out of the Grand Canyon. To say that my wife was scared is an understatement. New off-brand pads had failed BEFORE our trip, and I took it back, and they replaced the pads ... with the exact same brand. They said that that was the only brand available ... and that it should have been an anomaly. But manufacturers make 100s of thousands of pads, and besides, it was just weeks since the last fail ... don't ya think you would be buying from the same batch? I was focused on the upcoming trip so my powers of reason were dull and I let them do it. So I had to replace the pads and don't remember if I turned or replaced the rotors, but used Toyota parts, so I paid twice. That was two years ago. My anger subsided ... I used to bowl with most of the mechanics so I HAD a soft spot for Berdine's, and I went back yesterday. Big mistake. I sold my car, but Had to replace the window regulator before delivering it. When I went to pick the car up, I it ester the window, and it was IMMEDIATELY apparent to anyone that the door panel raised in the corner as the window went up. Anyone, even a child could see it. That meant the mechanic was either lady or had no idea what he was doing, and made the decision to give it back to me, hoping I would accept crappy work. The shop, does not have a foreman to check to see if the work the mechanic does is done right or even completed when they give the car back. I went back in and complained, and they sent out the mechanic. This is a near perfect quote of what he said to me .... There must be some kind of adjustment up in there to tighten that down. Yes! It's called a screw. Or a snap. I don't know much, but I've replaced a number of door panels, and there have never been some kind of adjusters to tighten them down in the corners. Now if this wasn't bad enough, the car has expensive window tinting, which has now been scratched and gouged. Berdine's offered to make room to fix my door panel ... but using the exact same mechanic. There is no way I am going to allow the same butcher to work on my car again. So once again, I am going to have to pay to fix Berdines issues. There are people in town who love this place. But I have absolutely no luck with them. If you use them, I hope you are a very lucky person.
