These guys are very experienced, affordable and come recommended by local residents who know about cars. Joe will show you how the car works, what the problem is, and give you a full range of affordable options, including recycled or secondary market parts. He has 30 years of experience with dealers and goes right to the problem. He enjoys working on cars and solving problems. He makes the repairs affordable. The shop is full service, covers all kinds of repairs, and has the equipment a dealer has. They work on American made and older cars. They were recommended by the staff at my apartment complex where he has fixed two older cars at lower prices than other shops with the great results. I took a 1987 Ford Ranger I had just bought on Craigslist. The transmission had locked up and I was looking at replacing it. Joe opened it and showed me how the shifter worked, and only replaced the shifter with a recycled one, saving me hundreds. They also found a dysfunctional sensor that fixed all the engine problems I thought were terminal. They transformed what I was afraid was junker into a fully functioning truck.

I brought in my car first thing in the morning of my appointment, and said that I could only leave my car for the day. My car had brake problems and intermittent A/C failures. They called me with diagnoses (new master cylinder, new boots, and recharge the A/C) and a price. When I called them about when I could pick up the car, they said they hadn't figured what was wrong with the A/C. I let them know I needed to pick up the car anyway. When I got there, they said they also had to replace both front calipers and one disk (even though they said the disk was OK when they called with their estimate), but they would only charge me for the parts, not labor. As a result, the price was higher than quoted, but the difference between the estimate and the final bill was about $200 more than the cost of the extra parts. Unless they had 2 guys working on the car all day, the labor rate had to be over $100/hr. As for the A/C, I diagnosed myself that the relay was bad (a $14 part); there was no way that a bad A/C charge could explain the intermittent failure. I think they just routinely recharge it when there are A/C problems. The manager had left for the day, but when I called him about the bill discrepancy, he got defensive and denied that there was a difference. He offered to give me a good deal on fixing the A/C. I also thought they should have called before they added on the calipers and disk.
