I had to go to work in Erie, Pa. Just after arriving from down south, my beloved '93 BMW wouldn't start, although a battery was installed less than a month earlier by a big store that "has everything." A co-worker suggested Greg's shop. He told me that Greg had worked on his Bimmers and he was happy with his work. The shop is one of those where it's not pretty, but you know the work is getting done. The chain store had installed the wrong battery and it had shorted out my system. Greg had me up and running after putting in the right battery and putting in a few new connections. All in all, a painless trip to the mechanic.

AWFUL! Do NOT take your car to this mechanic. I was having some issues with my 2003 Toyota Corolla a little while back that I was reasonably sure were related to a wheel bearing and spark plugs. I was also burning through oil very quickly. The owner of this shop assured me the bearing was fine and I just needed a new back tire, and that it wasn't spark plugs that I needed, but a new transmission. He told me he had found a very reasonably priced used transmission, and being without other transportation and not wanting to buy a new car, I had him go ahead with the repairs. $1200 bucks later I had a new transmission, new back tire, and apparently fixed oil leak. Would be great if the car would've run properly after all these supposed repairs, but it definitely did not, I burned through oil just as quick, still had noise from the wheel area, and the transmission seemed to have just been tuned high... Definitely not idling properly. I now have it at a reputable mechanic who has told me I need a new wheel bearing (as suspected), and that I have an extensive oil leak... Verdict isn't in on the transmission yet. Long story short, this shop was horrible. After talking to a few other people around town I was told that he used to be great, but has slid drastically in quality over the past couple years. Unfortunate.
